Preheating the water turns many so-so brewers into good brewers, and
transforms good brewers into great ones. Here's a simple mod that I made to
my Melitta Clarity (unfortunately a discontinued model) that lets me brew at

- In side-by-side tests with my old Krups 209, the Technivorm brews at 4
higher temperature. The difference drops to 2 deg F if the Krups water is
pre-warmed to abround 100 deg. F. Either way, with a variety of beans, we
tell the difference in the resulting brews.
Anyone want a mint Technivorm Moccamaster, used to brew one pot a day for
weeks, for $225? Paid $265 from Storehouse Coffee.
