Hello everyone,

I've been wondering if any of you guys had found a table or a rough guide to what temp to brew at by origin.  I know that we're supposed to stick to the 195-205 range, but I know that different origins have different reputations for ideal extraction times.  Has anyone found any sort of general guide for these things?

Thanks for your help.

There are a couple if general rules when it comes to brew temperature, it has more to do with the roast profile or darkness of the bean, as oppose to the origin. Before a roaster begins, the method of processing is a factor while choosing a probable roast degree target.

There are some additional things to consider when it comes to brew temperature though:

The fresher the coffee, the lower the brew temperature needs to be.
If the coffee is overly sour, but within the 25-30 second brew time, the brew temperature is most likely too cool.
If the coffee is overly sharp, but within the 25-30 second brew time, the temp is probably too hot.
