Carafes & Pitchers - How to Make Your Own Coffee at Home

What are carafes & Pitchers? A coffee mug that also functions as a pouring pitcher. Some of the more elaborate versions even have a built-in filter for removing the grounds from your coffee, thus eliminating the need to use a separate filter. While this may seem like an insignificant feature in the grand scheme of things, think about how many cups of coffee you could brew using a single carafe. In addition, carafes are typically less expensive than glass carafes, and they often come in interesting designs, including ones shaped like cans or bottles.

 

How do you choose the best carafe for your needs? Keep in mind that quality does vary a bit. You should choose a carafe that is made from a sturdy material, such as stainless steel. Metal is generally durable and doesn't corrode, so it's relatively easy to clean and maintain. If you are concerned about waste, choose a carafe that comes with a built-in filter. This will help you save even more money on coffee at the end of each day!

 

Once you've decided on a carafe that you're happy with, it's time to find the coffee mug that goes with it. There are two basic styles: plastic or glass. Each type has its pros and cons, so take a look at both before you make a purchase. Plastic is definitely the lowest-cost option, but it tends to be lower quality and prone to breaking.

 

Glass carafes have the highest price point, but they look really great! They are, however, more susceptible to damage than plastic models, so consider purchasing a good quality carafe made from a higher quality metal. As with any glass coffee mug, you need to make sure that it doesn't shatter if it tips. Also, make sure that the carafe doesn't shatter because it reflects light, creating hot spots around the rim of the glass, which can make your coffee look strange.

 

Plastic carafes, while being cheaper than glass ones, can also be prone to breakage. The good news is that most plastic models feature a shatterproof carafe. Another problem is that these coffee mugs don't stay cool very well, meaning that condensation can form on them even if they are covered. In addition, a poorly made plastic carafe could easily shatter, leaving nasty sharp edges that cut into your fingers when you try to fill it with coffee.

 

If you really want to cut down on expenses, consider purchasing a coffee mug with a built-in water filtration system. These products are readily available online and in specialty shops and can make a real difference in how clean your carafe stays. As long as you follow the manufacturer's instructions, you shouldn't encounter any issues with these carafes. If you do, simply soak the coffee in water for a few minutes to dislodge any sediment and leave it to dry.

 

If your carafe is still dripping, simply shake it out and apply some downward pressure until the drip disappears. If this doesn't solve the problem, just make sure that the seal around the edges is holding firm. You can use a hair dryer to heat up the carafe until it begins to leak.

 

Once you have determined that your coffee carafes & pitchers are properly lined and sealed, you will want to store them in a cool, dry place. You may choose to wrap them in acid-free tissue paper before placing them in your fridge. If you aren't planning to eat your coffee in the morning (which is often) you should find a place to keep them to cool. If you do, it is important that you don't leave them out in the open. The coffee can become warm very quickly if left out. Instead, store them in your refrigerator.
