What is the optimal water temperature for brewing coffee?

Most coffee lovers agree that the optimal temperature for brewing coffee falls between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit (or just below boil).

Before we bought our kettle with thermometer, we would bring our water to a boil and then wait 45 seconds before pouring into theĀ  French Press.

This method works, but if you live at a very high altitude, then this method does not work and you have to wait longer.

The BEST way to ensure the temperature is correct is to have a kettle with a built in thermometer like this.
