CBTL water temperature

Postby Ardy » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:11 am

What is the temperature of your CBTL machine? My Americano, on a blank coffee setting so it is just water, registered 160 degrees in the stream of water coming out, and 152 in the cup (cooling down when it hit the cup).

This seems quite low. Do the other models provide hotter temperatures? I read somewhere on here a nesspreso cupe had similar temps to the above but it brewed at 180 in the machine according to some tech specs. I had hoped the CBTLs would do better.

I see no way to actually measure the effective temperature in one of the Caffitaly machines since it is the temperature in the capsule itself that is important.

Welcome, Ardy. Measuring brew temp. is always tricky. Are you trying because the coffee tastes too cool, or are you just curious?

Re: CBTL water temperature

I am trying because the output seems not hot enough. In other machines I have used the coffee was almost too hot to drink and coffee in my travel mug remained nice and hot. On the Americano, drinking just a cup at home, it is noticeable not as hot. This is fine for a single cup, but my travel mug, even with prewarming, isn't working very well.

So my concern is the CBTLs in general, or my Americano specifically, don't produce hot enough output. I don't really care I guess about internal brew temps or what is ideal temperature for coffee or espresso, but I do want my coffee in my travel mug to last longer like it did before.

If others have similar temperatures in their output, or can say the CBTL isn't as hot as their Tassimo or Keurig, then I will try to find a way to heat it up more. But if people have outputs in the 180s or feel their CBTls are just as hot as other machines, then I need to look at a different CBTL model or get a different Americano.

Thanks!
Ardy

Remember that the CBTL machines, even when making coffee, are using a different method than conventional brewing, it is a moderate pressure technique (3.5BAR) similar to what you get with a Moka pot.

Well CBTL support came through with the below and suggested I exchange the unit because of the large drop in temperature.

"The temperature on the CBTL Americano is factory set to approximately 185 degrees. However a 20-30 degree drop in temperature once in the cup seems high, unless the coffee is left sitting for a period of time."

So I guess I'll do that, but even at 185 factory setting cup temps are not going to reach the other machines I have experience with. Guess I may just have to drink faster. :-)

My CBTL Contata is hotter than all 3 Nespresso machines I've owned. Additionally, the CBTL machines can be adjusted hotter by, I believe, another 6 degrees. I haven't felt the need to do so.
