Coffee @ 89 degrees would be lethal ;-)
Most adults will suffer third-degree burns if exposed to 150 degree water
seconds. Burns will also occur with a six-second exposure to 140 degree
with a thirty second exposure to 130 degree water. Even if the temperature
is 120 degrees,
a five minute exposure could result in third-degree burns.
As 89°C == 192°F you'd suffer a third degree burn in less that 2 seconds
if you drink your coffee...
