A quick google came up with a few more interesting links:

"How It works" said it all!!!! Thanks for those links, very informative. At one time I had read that boiling coffee was not the way to make coffee. Anybody agree on that?

I think the best coffee is made from water about 208 degrees or so.
Chefs call it "Off The Boil ".
Bring water (without Coffee) to a rolling boil, remove from heat and wait just a few seconds.
The water should then be about right for making drip or french press coffee.
Cheers!

Thanks Allen, that sounds like what I had read. Let's ask Skidsteer how he makes his coffee and maybe he'll show us his set-up :)

True enough. 170-180 degrees is probably plenty hot truth be told.

I "searched" coffee recipes, here, and I came up with this thread.

I remember we had a long-running thread about making coffee, while backpacking.

It is interesting that this thread matches the information I found online, for cuban coffee.

Here is the link: http://www.cubanfoodmarket.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CFM&Product_Code=COL40401&Category_Code=20302

DO NOT BOIL THE COFFEE. LET THE WATER COME TO A BOIL SHUT IT ADD THE COFFEE, LET IT STEEP FOR 1 MINUTE, STIR, AND FILTER THROUGH THE SOCK INTO A CARAFF. I USE BUSTELLO REGULAR COFFEE- IT IS THE BEST! FOR A 1.5 QUART POT 48 OZS. ADD 4 HEAPING TABLESPOONS OF COFFEE, TO ALMOST BOILING POINT WATER, SHUT THE FIRE ADD COFFEE AND STIR LET STEEP FOR 1 MINUTE, THE LONGER THE STRONGER. IF YOU BOIL THE COFFE IT WILL BURN AND GIVE A BITTER FLAVOR.


The filter used is pictured at the link.

A coffee shop owner once told me the best tasting coffee made is not when the water boils, but when the "water smokes".
