Usefull Coffee Carafe Tips

A coffee carafe is a medium-sized pot that comes with most coffee makers. The carafe is placed underneath the reservoir area of the coffee maker and the carafe is the pot that receives the coffee that is being brewed. Coffee carafes come in various colors and designs and a majority of them are made of glass. Over time the coffee carafe becomes stained and if it is not cleaned properly, there will be an unpleasant smell and soon you will have to replace it.

Cleaning The Coffee Carafe

To clean your coffee carafe, you have several ways to do it. One option is to rinse out all the coffee grinds and fill up the carafe with dish-washing liquid and warm water. Then you need to soak the carafe for fifteen to twenty minutes then rinse the soapy water out of the carafe. Wash the bottom of the carafe as you rinse the soapy water out. Another option is to place a few teaspoons of white vinegar and water in the carafe and let it soak for twenty minutes. After you do this you want to scrub the stains from the carafe and rinse it out five to seven times until all the vinegar is cleared out the carafe.

Getting Replacement Carafes

When your original carafe breaks or has gotten too dirty, it would be ideal to replace that carafe with one from the brand of your current coffee maker but if your coffee maker brand is no longer in production, you can choose from another brand. If you are deciding whether to get a glass or thermal carafe, here are some considerations. The benefit of using a thermal carafe is that it is insulated and as a result the coffee stays hot. If you get a glass carafe, you run the risk of breaking it easily and your coffee usually gets cooler over time.

Ask friends who replace their carafes often and get suggestions from them, and walk in the store and ask the salesperson.

Thermal and glass carafes are both effective but the thermal carafes are better because they keep the coffee from burning and these carafes keep the coffee hot for hours.
