My new coffee maker does not make hot coffee.
What the hell is with that? I don't set my expectations high, really, but I think it should be required that all coffee makers produce hot coffee.

I am so po'd right now. I have people coming over tomorrow night who like coffee - what am I supposed to say - would you like a cup of lukewarm coffee?

2. Spend $40 and buy a quality french press
It's a little labor intensive but...

Trust me.

4. Ahhh, if it's labor intensive my husband won't do it. He was
aggravated because our last coffee maker had cone shaped filters instead of basket shaped. Cone shaped is too much work. I should have just bought the coffee/latte/espresso machine!

7. I do microwave my coffee when it gets to cool but I hate that
scummy film on the surface from the cream.

8. Point of fact
I do believe the newest one's have a new regulation on them forcing them to only brew at a maximum of 110 degrees -- appearantly because your federal government does not believe you can be trusted to protect yourself or your children from burns caused by hot coffee.
