Thermal coffee carafes are not mere novelties reserved for coffee connoisseurs. They will, plain and simple, improve your coffee drinking experience. And by extension, your day-to-day life. As we'll explain below, they are great for entertaining, however, they'll also enhance your daily coffee consumption in ways that extend from the flavor of your coffee to the wear and tear associated with operating your coffee maker and other related appliances. Furthermore, you don't need to buy a special coffee maker just for the thermal carafe unless you want to. Simply brew coffee in your standard coffee maker with a glass carafe, then pour it into the thermal carafe when it's finished brewing. Though, if you'd rather not mess about with standard makers, you can find a maker that will brew directly into a thermal carafe. Either way, you will reap the benefits of using a thermal carafe. To learn how, read on.
No More "Burnt Coffee" Flavor
While there are technically worse things than a bad cup of coffee, nobody enjoys pouring a cup of much-needed Joe, only to find the burnt dregs of a pot is all that remains. Often, a bitter or burnt coffee flavor results from coffee that's been sitting on the burner for too long. While burners are standard heating elements for glass carafes, thermal carafes are vacuum insulated, allowing you to keep coffee hot without overheating it. This also prevents the burner on your coffee maker from overworking and dying out as fast.
Thermal Carafe are More Durable
While glass carafes can easily shatter, requiring careful handling, thermal carafes are nearly indestructible. Aside from a few dings and dents, these coffee vessels can survive being dropped or knocked over from time to time. This allows you to worry less about your carafe when children or guests are around.
With Thermal Carafes, Coffee is Easily Accessible
Thermal carafes allow you to go cordless when drinking coffee. Rather than making multiple trips to your kitchen for a refill, simply pour your coffee into the thermal carafe and tote it around with you as you move throughout the house. This is a great convenience when you have a project to work on and wish to keep coffee on hand in your office while you work. It also allows you to drink at your own pace, as the coffee will stay hot for over an hour in thermal carafes.
They Allow You to Make Coffee in Advance
Unless you have a timer on your coffee machine, you likely have to prepare your coffee to brew minutes before you wish to drink it. Because most thermal carafes keep beverages hot for several hours, you can often brew coffee in advance and store in the carafe for later. While you might not want to brew coffee the night before, you can brew some in the morning to be ready for afternoon consumption. Alternatively, you can brew it a few hours before dinner so it's ready when for you when you wish to relax at the end of the day.
They're Great for Entertaining
Whether you have company over for brunch or are serving coffee to cap off the evening after dinner, thermal carafes are well suited for entertaining. Compared to glass carafes, they are more pleasing to the eyes, and can be conveniently placed near your guests for easy access. This is wonderful during the holidays, when you want to serve coffee to a friend or relative who wishes to keep to themselves, away from a crowded kitchen.
