Keep It Warm

Yesterday, while making my usual rounds to the blogs, I came across a great idea from Joy over at Savvy City Farmer. She posted about what she called a Coffee Butler and encouraged us all to pick up one of the orphans from a thrift and save it from the dump...Yikes, that's a bad word around here. Anyway, I remembered my Mid-Century carafe that I had tucked away and pulled it out for my afternoon coffee.

It did a fabulous job of keeping it warm and no bitterness, which means less waste for me, as I will pour it out and start over with fresh.

I went on Etsy to see if they had any and was pleasantly surprised to find a vast amount and variety for some pretty good prices too. Here is the link if you want to look around.

This morning I made another pot after my shower and here it is, faithfully keeping my brew hot until I need another little pick-me-up, how fun is this?!
Have a great day friends! xo

Do you think it will work for tea?
I love the 60's retro look!

Interesting!! I used to have a carafe or two, but they are long gone. I imagine they would work for tea also.

Sounds and looks like a handy thing to have around, I looked at some of the others with the link you posted they’re all quite nice but I think I like your one the best it’s very nice indeed.

How stinkin' gorgeous is that! :) It's right off the set of MadMen! :)

I got my coffee maker this time with a carafe for that very reason. I'm so glad I did.
