I'm more of a coffee drinker but you could probably still use this:
Just run it without coffee in it and you have a carafe full of hot water. I could measure how hot it comes out I guess but coffee is generally brewed ~180F ish
Nice thing is it reports states (Refill Water, Replace Carafe, etc.) so you can have it send reminders to refill it before you go to bed etc
I think the DIY path of least resistance is to get a Sonoff and flash it (requires extremely basic soldering), and mod that to the AC cable of a kettle that will turn on when electricity is applied.
