I love having Christmas designs on my coffee carafes! It is part of the Christmas celebration in our home. As soon as Thanksgiving is past, we pull out our Koffee Kingdom Christmas Blend Coffee Recipe, our Christmas coffee mugs, and Christmas coffee carafe to use each morning and throughout the day.
It seems we all run at such a breakneck pace during the holidays, it is really nice to have those little reminders on the kitchen counter to stop and really celebrate Christmas. We need to snatch those moments of joy as often as possible.
Nikko Ceramic Christmas Coffee Carafe
My personal favorite is the Nikko Christmas Coffee Carafe. It matches my Christmas china, but even if I didn’t have the china, it would still be my favorite. I love the Christmas tree design, especially the little teddy bear under the tree.
The carafe itself is a hard plastic with a thermal glass liner. It claims to be dishwasher safe, but I have never washed any of my coffee carafes in the dishwasher. I always hand wash them to ensure years of use.
Red Christmas Coffee Carafe
There are times when I am not using my Christmas china, or when I want to carry the coffee carafe to a party or neighbors house, that I prefer to use my simply red coffee carafe. It easily goes with just about any Christmas decor and will not conflict with other serving pieces.
The Oggi carafe has an unbreakable stainless steel liner which makes it an exceptional choice for travel and transporting coffee to another location. Plus, it will keep coffee hot for up to 8 hrs.
It holds 54 oz. of coffee which makes it perfect for a Christmas party or gathering of friends.
Another very real benefit to opting for a red carafe is that it can be used year round. It simply looks especially pretty during the holidays.
Wilbur Curtis Thermal Dispenser Air Pot
The two carafes above are both pour style carafes, meaning you literally pick them up and pour your coffee into your cup. If you prefer to have a pump dispenser, the Wilbur Curtis Thermal Air Pot is an excellent choice. It will keep your coffee hot for hours. To use it, you literally leave it sitting on the counter and pump your coffee into your cup with the lever.
Just keep in mind, that it does have a glass liner that can break, so be sure to use proper caution if you are transporting the air pot from one place to another.
Keeping Your Coffee Hot Longer in a Carafe
Anytime you are using a coffee carafe, your beverage is stay hot longer if you prepare the carafe first by heating the carafe liner with hot water. Simply pour hot water in the carafe to heat the interior, pour out the water, then fill the carafe with your brewed hot coffee.
This carafes are not electric. The do not continue to heat your coffee, so it really is essential to preheat the carafe interior.
