What Temperature Should Batch Brew Coffee Be Served At?

Serving & Holding

Coffee Holding & Serving Best Practices

Brewed coffee should be enjoyed while flavor and aroma are at their peak. BUNN offers a range of holding and serving equipment designed to keep your coffee at its best.

  • Ideal holding temperature: 80ºF to 85ºC
    • Most volatile aromatics in coffee have boiling points well below that of water and continue to evaporate from the surface until pressure in the serving container reaches equilibrium. A closed container can slow the process of evaporation.
  • Ideal serving temperature: 80ºF to 85ºC
    • Volatile aromatics in coffee are not perceived when coffee is served at lower temperatures.
  • Ideal holding time: 20 minutes in an open top decanter / 60 minutes in a closed container
    • Holding coffee longer will result in loss of the smooth, sweet and complex flavors and instead produce a scorched or bitter taste.
