About the same temp as espresso 91 -93o but it depends on your tastes. Two options:Originally Posted by 13170B01090E0B0C05620 link=1313114348/0#0 date=1313114348
(1) pour the water into the cup first, let it stand for a little while then pour the shot into the water.
(2) Heat the water in the kettle rather than use the hot water tap. You can usually hear the kettle approaching boiling temp: the sound lowers in tone and volume. Switch it off before you hear it start bubbling or pour the water and let it sit. As per option (1), I prefer to pour the shot into the cup of hot water rather than adding water to the shot.
