Why Does Coffee Brewing
Temperature Matters?

Coffee brewing basics are to extract the good flavor characteristics from the coffee beans.

So the following factors such as time, temperature, coffee to water ratio, coffee grind size, and agitation are fundamentals to get a cup of coffee that is balanced, pleasant mouthfeel body, and a sweet, clean finish. 

Balancing the five different variables is too complex to balance all of the variables to create a great cup of coffee.

So how does temperature affect brewing?

Water quality, including temperature, determines how quickly the water will be able to extract the goods from the coffee. This is one of the reasons why a shot of espresso can be brewed in thirty seconds as compared to cold brew can take up to sixteen or eighteen hours to brew.

Suggested water temperature to start at 210ºF with a Stagg EKG Electric Kettle that has a variable temperature control that certainly will give you a ridiculously good cup of coffee.
