My Favorite Carafe Of Coffee
Why Use A Coffee Carafe
Do you use a coffee carafe? I do. The reason being is that I like to drink coffee throughout the day, but prefer not to make a fresh pot for each cup. Unless one intends to use up an entire pot of fresh coffee quickly, it usually sits on the hot plate for a length of time, and the fresh coffee continues to cook with the heat, making it a bit stronger and bitter than when the pot was first fresh brewed.
Over the years, I've used coffee carafes to solve the problem, and to prevent getting a cup of coffee with the 'bottom of the pot' taste. So far, I've used several different carafes for coffee, and have my favorites.
Thermal carafes are versatile, practical and portable. The carafe shown here is highly rated, tested, and approved.
The Carafe I Use Most
The simple glass lined coffee carafe is just about my favorite of all the types I've used. Glass lined thermal carafes impart no metalic taste to the coffee, and keeps the coffee hot. The last cup from the carafe is neither bitter or strong.

The Perfect Table Tool
Thermal carafes are useful for more than just pouring coffee. For example, a thermal carafe makes a wonderful gravy server. It is great to be able to make gravy ahead of time instead of at the last minute knowing that the carafe will keep it hot for hours. (Nothing much worse than cold gravy at the table.)
Of course, the thermal carafe is also great for holding hot chocolate, hot toddies, hot tea, hot broth, hot soup, etc. On the other hand, it is also serves as a great insulated pitcher for iced water, iced tea, iced coffee, milk shakes, mixed drinks, and more.
As one who appreciates a good cup of coffee, I often carried my own carafe of coffee to work. It is perfect vessel for home, office, travel, tail gaiting, or camping. The handle makes it easy to carry, hold, and pour.
