140 degrees Fahrenheit is a more accurate and reasonable number.

So you're saying that the biggest, most successful fast food company in the world had no idea what temperature it's customers preferred to consume coffee at? You dont think they studied that intensively and designed their machines and processes accordingly? Instead, they just wanted to burn their customer's hands and tongues and laps? That's pretty hard to swallow (yuk yuk).

Anybody, everybody who drinks coffee (or tea or cocoa for that matter) knows something. It's hot. If you buy it somewhere, your first sip carefully until you know how hot. If its cold, don't buy there again.

Those lessons are not lost on the coffee sellers, either. Customers can wait for it to cool down, but if they wait it ain't gonna heat up.

Oh there's one more thing that consumers now know. Don't spill hot liquids in your lap. But if you do, blame somebody else and sue them for it.
