In hot water, or perhaps not
The general consensus is that hot water and coffee go together like a hand in a glove, but a recent study from UC Davis Coffee Center in the United States, might actually indicate that water temperature doesn’t impact coffee’s flavour as much as people might think.
The study reported that “when brew strength and extraction yield remain constant, changes in the water temperature of brewed hot coffee do not result in perceptible sensory changes.”
“Our original hypothesis was that the brew temperature would matter a lot,” said UC Davis Coffee Center Director and Professor William Ristenpart. “We were surprised to find it matters very little, provided you control the brew strength and extraction yield.”
So, it’s probably useful to know that if you happen to leave your kettle off the boil a little longer than usual, it’s not going make a huge difference to the final cup.
