Only at McDonald's was it required to be 185 and sometimes as high as 190.

I'm just curious as this confirms, on the rare occasions I'd get a McDonald's breakfast with coffee, that the coffee was always WAY TOO DAMN HOT. I had to pop the top and wait 15 minutes for it to vent before I'd even risk putting in sugar and cream, let alone take a sip.

Is there any explanation in all this for "why" this was McD's policy? I'm guessing it was because they didn't want to deal with complaints about the coffee being cold, but that still stretches logic. Serving coffee that hot makes about as much sense to me as serving ice cream chilled down to -200°F.
