Brewing the perfect cup of coffee or tea is about so much more than pairing it with the right alt-milk. Temperature can play a huge impact on the taste and strength of your warm beverage. While pour-over coffee works best with water that’s around 200°F, matcha likes water that’s 175°F.
Unless you’re going to carefully measure your water temp with a thermometer every time you want a hot drink, adjustable electric kettles are the way to go. You can pick your desired temperature, and the water won’t get any hotter than that. The kettles below are cordless, allowing you to fill them with ease, and they’ll keep the water at the exact temperature you want for several minutes after brewing.
