Vacuum Insulated Coffee Carafes

Pros and Cons of Buying Your Own Coffee Carafe

If you’re just like any other regular coffee drinker, you’re probably enjoying your favorite cup of coffee from a coffee pot, french press, or pour over.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with that, we encourage it actually but please don’t store your coffee on a hot plate or in the french press that still has compacted grounds at the bottom. Your coffee will suffer because of it.

At Gathering Grounds we encourage all our customers to buy at the very least a small insulated carafe to keep brewed coffee hot and tasting it’s best. Below are a few good vacuum insulated options that should work just fine for most people.

Tip – these perform a bit better than glass lined thermal carafes. This is why they may cost a pinch more on average too.If you want to see the glass lined insulated carafes to save some money click here.

Here are some additional advantages of buying a vacuum insulated carafe to hold your coffee.


  • Coffee carafes don’t need to apply heat to keep the coffee warm, so the resulting coffee will taste better and be a lot less bitter.
  • Coffee carafes are also quite light in weight so you won’t have to worry about carrying it with you so you can have your daily dose of caffeine anywhere you want.
  • The biggest advantage, though, is that you can use vacuum insulated coffee carafes to brew far more servings than you can with normal coffee pots and store it for later at the correct temp.


  • One glaring disadvantage is that thermal carafes, especially those vacuum insulated coffee carafes, cost far more than normal coffee pots and glass lined thermal carafes.

True, there’s nothing wrong with the good old coffee pot on a hot plate, but if you’re tired of them burning your coffee and want a decent “upgrade”, be sure to consider buying a new insulated coffee carafe soon.

I have been working in the coffee industry since 2013 and have been a professional online publisher since 2009. I am the current owner of and I love all forms of coffee. I roast my own green coffee beans, grind them, and usually make my own coffee daily in either a french press, moka pot, or a pour over coffee dripper. I am a nut for equipment so many of my articles are reviews and comparisons of best selling coffee brewing accessories.
