Yes its true.
At a mile above sea level water boils at roughly 203 degrees. We have messed with Fetco settings, grind size and everything else under the sun, with little to no success.
I have spent some time learning from the cowboy coffee master, Paul Songer. He taught me how to make damn good coffee over a campfire at 8000 feet with a boiling point of 196 F.
When it came time to open our new coffee bar, we struggled with what brewing system to use. Using V60's in a commercial setting would require keeping kettles on burners. Not so fun.
So after some head scratching and stress over how to brew great coffee at our elevation, my wife and partner Cara, thought it would be awesome to find a way to make cowboy coffee by the cup.
I set to work looking for equipment to achieve this goal. We are proud to say that we have conquered the temperature dilemma. Check out the link and if you are ever in Colorado please come and visit us.
