The proper temperature water should be when brewing coffee is slightly below boiling (around 180-205 F, depending on roast) Colder water makes the coffee flat and watery, boiling or overboiling water can make the coffee actually burn while brewing.

Boiling water releases bitter tasting compounds from coffee. A few degrees cooler doesn't. You can't drink coffee at 90 degrees anyway.

The best coffee temperatures is between 185 - 205f. When making coffee in a cevfe (Turkish pot) or a cafetiere, you put the coffee on top of the water. It will steep better and more evenly that way.
