What's the best temperature for coffee?

Depends whether you're talking brewing or drinking.

Ideal temperature for brewing coffee.

For brewing coffee the water should be a little before boiling point.

I use a Brewista Electric Kettle and I set it to 204 degrees Fahrenheit or about 96 degrees Celsius. It will hold that temperature for me. Using the kettle, I make my pour over into a 800ml thermal carafe.

Ideal temperature for Drinking coffee.

Coffee starts to taste better and ultimately a better experience as it goes from super hot to warm. Basically we as humans, aren't very good at tasting stuff at higher temperatures.
