> From the October 24th, 1994 issue of National Law Journal, Letters section
> McDonald's Corp. sold its coffee at 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit by

By coincidence, from the October 1994 issue of CONSUMER REPORTS, and their
report on drip coffee makers:
> "Experts say coffee in the carafe should be between 170 degrees and 190
> degrees. A model that makes or keeps hotter coffee may be important to
> you if you add a lot of milk."
Two-thirds of 28 coffeemakers reviewed by CR delivered and/or held the coffee
in the carafe at 180 degrees or above. Only two delivered or held the brew at
170 degrees or below.
This seems to me to be a wonderful opportunity for some professional victim
out there to pour some java on themselves and go after the deep pockets over
at Krups, Braun, and Black & Decker!
Can we get back to talking about list management now?
