2. Description of the Related Art Generally, in a vending machine, when there is a sales request in a standby state, the extraction container lowers and the filter is sandwiched by the extraction table, and then the beverage raw material and the hot water are supplied to the extraction container. It is agitated and mixed by supplying air from below. Then, after that, the pressurized air is added to the space above the brewing container to brew and sell the beverage by the filter. By the way, the beverage can be extracted in a short time by mixing the beverage raw materials such as coffee and tea and hot water with vigorous stirring to extract the beverage, but the temperature of the mixed liquid in the extraction container is sharp The quality of the beverage is reduced and it is not possible to extract good quality beverages. On the other hand, in the above stirring step, if the extraction time is extended while the stirring by the pressurized air is weakened and the proper temperature is maintained, a drink with good quality can be obtained. Conventionally, in order to keep the inside of the extraction container at an appropriate temperature, a heater is directly wound around the extraction container, a heater is attached to a part of the extraction container, or a heater is attached to a member for fixing the extraction container.
