Thermal Carafes | Thermal Coffee Pots 0

As technology would have it, coffee maker companies created a coffee maker that brews directly into a carafe. Thermal carafes keep coffee warm for hours longer than glass coffee decanters without altering the flavor of the coffee. Glass decanters that sit on the warming plate of the coffee maker for hours are often bitter and can burn. Thermal carafes do not allow this to happen and keep the coffee fresh and ready to drink.

Carafes come in a variety of styles and colors, from decorative colors that match kitchen decor to stainless steel. No matter which style or color is chosen they are double walled to keep the contents hot and ready whenever a fresh cup of coffee is desired. Coffee makers that use thermal carafes in place of glass decanters often have built in extras such as automatic shut-offs and programmable timers. Practically any function that a coffee maker with a glass decanter has can be found on coffee makers that use a thermal carafe as the coffee server.

Coffee makers saw the popularity and the benefits of the coffee carafe and combined the two to create the best of both worlds. Coffee makers with thermal carafes brew the coffee directly into the carafe which is then used to serve the coffee and keep it warm without having it sit on the warming plate. The carafe comes with a lid that is placed on it after the coffee brews. These coffee makers are excellent for use in corporate boardrooms where a more elegant coffee service is preferred over the typical glass decanter.

Any administrative person who has been in charge of keeping fresh coffee made can vouch for the use of a thermal carafe. It only takes one time leaving a glass coffee carafe on the heating unit to find out that not only can the coffee evaporate over time and burn the pot, it can also break the pot if left on the heating unit accidentally. Thermal carafes prevent this from happening.

There are many coffee maker manufacturers who offer a thermal carafe coffee maker including reputable makers like Cuisinart, Capresso, Krups and many more. Some manufactures offer the carafe in colors or brushed stainless steel but most only offer it in the brushed stainless steel. Thermal carafes are useful and more appealing than glass coffee decanters. They keep coffee fresh and keep the eyesore of a stained glass pot from being the focal point of the kitchen. Individuals and businesses can purchase thermal carafes separate or as part of their coffee maker. Either way, they are a useful kitchen addition for home or office.

The History of the Melitta Coffee Maker 0

The history of the Melitta coffee maker is one that would surprise the lady whose name it bears. The Melitta name originated with the invention of the coffee filter and has grown to include gourmet coffees and a line of electric and non-electric coffee makers. The history of the Melitta Coffee maker goes way back in time to a little German town and a German housewife who grew weary of brewing coffee with grounds infiltrating the final product when served. Although she didn't invent the Melitta coffee maker, she did invent the first coffee filters and the company that marketed them carried her name and eventually a coffee maker as well.
