Default coffee tips?

Here's a question: Do typical coffee-makers somehow cool the water
before it hits the coffee?


I don't think they boil the water, they just heat it to a certain
temperature.

Your idea, if you're using a kettle, to let it cool a bit sounds right
to me. We do the same thing, but even more so, for tea, which seems to
like an even lower temperature. We usually add a bit of cold water to
the pot.
