The manual is sort of correct but at the same time wrong.Originally Posted by 78575E4C4A74390 link=1266222481/0#0 date=1266222481
It depends on how and where you measure the temp..
Usualy about 87 +/- 2 as it exits the group head.. *But cools even further as it hits the group / coffee and even less by the time it hits the cup.. *This is normal.
Thus the reason why you need to let it sit and and have the group in to come up to temp . *With no water.. And up to temp say 20 min... Check the temp of the group head - Internally.
Note - You are using an accurate *calibrated temperature meter ?
Sorry.... But without real measurments and knowing how they were taken.. It sounds normal to me.
