My name is RP i’m working on a project to regulated the temperature of a coffee maker. I don”t know were to start. what i want is to regulate the temperature of the coffee. Could you please help me.

This is what you may have to do. study below pages and try.
Murph’s Silvia PID Page – This page describes my effort to improve temperature control in a home espresso machine by installing a PID temperature controller. If you are reading this page, then you probably already know what Silvia is, what PID means and why anyone would want to add one to the other.
Tuning a PID (Three-Mode) Controller – . If the controller does not include an autotune algorithm or the autotune algorithm does not provide adequate control for the particular application, the unit must then be tuned using a trial and error method.
Temperature Control – PID and LabVIEW – First, let’s take a look at how the PID controller works in a closed-loop system using the schematic shown above. The variable (e) represents the tracking error, the difference between the desired input value (R) and the actual output (T). This error signal (e) is sent to the PID controller.
