Then boil the water. As I said earlier, I am using 60 ml of water. As for the temperature, most baristas boil water until the water reaches a temperature of 92-95 ° C, but I prefer to boil water until it reaches a temperature of 95-100 ° C due to temperature will be possibly reduced during the brewing process takes place.
