The topic of what the ideal water temperature should be for espresso is one of the most often asked.The short answer is that the ideal range for the water temperature to produce a high-quality espresso is between 90.5 and 96 degrees Celsius (195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit).Let’s go a little further to get to the bottom of why temperature is such a big deal when it comes to making a good espresso.
