I'm new to mycotoxins. Are trying to tell me that mycotoxins can survive 250C?

The mycotoxins are not the mold, they are the toxins produced by the mold. The mold would die at high temperatures, but the toxins will remain.

Maybe you can put a few ellipses in your title or "Mold and Mycotoxins?" instead of writing "15 characters" so people don't get confused.

I assume you're referring to assertions that mycotoxins are an issue in brewed coffees? There is some evidence that they're pretty hardy: Incidence, Level, and Behavior of Aflatoxins during Coffee Bean Roasting and Decaffeination suggests that roasting cuts aflatoxin numbers by around 50%.

Whether that's actually a problem, I don't know.
