  1. Actually, it is not a related degree thing. It is a type of brewing. There are two options almost working in the same way, and some of the coffee maker companies design them without an innovation and just by only copying. they really don’t know what they are giving the customer. I know it is long and harsh intro but this is the fact.
    one of these options is 1–4 cup button, this should be active when you make coffee less than 4 cups. Button slows down the flow and lets the water contact with the coffee for a longer time. Because less amount of coffee ground cant resist water and if the machine pours with the same flowrate then your coffee became a light tea
    second option is aroma or -like in your case- bold. This should start with blooming. Pour less amount of water and let it meet with the coffee let the all gas and air out for 40 seconds then start brewing with less amount of water. Just like making a pour-over. This option also causes a longer interaction between coffee and water and that makes it more aromatic and bold ( which is actually increase the body of the taste and smell)
    So some producers understand this and name the buttons like as it should be, but some name as what they saw from others.
    I hope I answered it without boring you
    cheers!

  2. I don’t know about Cuisinart but the Bunn I had a few years back had a strong setting which made the water 5 degrees fahrenheit hotter. Hotter water extracts more of the soluble content of the coffee. It is stronger that way but more harsh also. Some people like that

  3. Chops the coffee beans down to what looks almost like dust. It’s called espresso grind. With espresso grind more flavor is released when the hot water passes through this.
