I've never been able to drink leftover coffee. If I didn't dump it after I'd had enough, I've most likely also forgotten to turn the heating plate OFF, so all I have left is coffee flavored candy in the bottom of the pot. I fixed that problem by acquiring a Krups Home Cafe Pod Brewing Machine (two actually, one for work, one for home) and now I make all my coffee one cup at a time.

Oh yeah, the warming plate is a very bad thing. I never use it. I put my coffee into an airpot the minute it's brewed. Of course, after about 6 hours, it needs a little warming but at least it's not coffee flavored shellac in the bottom of the pot!

I just turn the coffee pot off once its done brewing. I need to get myself one of those nice thermoses to hold it in.
I wonder if there is a use for the 'shellac' on the bottom as a marinade or something in a recipe, LOL.

Hey, I never thought of that!

You can find an airpot pretty much anywhere. I got mine at a restaurant supply place. I got the stainless steel liner version since things get dropped a lot around here. It was about $32 as I recall.

That is what I need. I had a nice pump one but it had a glass liner of some sort and one day it just shattered on us.

Ick! I usually make exactly 2 cups of coffee in the morning as I don't care for stale coffee. I don't like to waste it as it's quite expensive. If I need another caffeine boost in the p.m., I make an exact cup again. When we have company over, I'll make the 12 cups but then my coffee maker goes nuts! LoL It starts leaking and pouring coffee from every which way telling me it can't handle all that much.

I have two coffee makers. One is a Gevalia 12 cup makes great coffee and handles all 12 cups nicely. Don't use it that much, mostly on her days off when she is around to have more than one mug, and when I do I usually don't make more than 8 cups at a time. Each of our mugs holds 2 cups so that give each of us two mugs worth, usually more than enough.
On days where the wife works, she won't be back for a second mug, so we have another Gevalia coffee maker. This one you place a mug on each side of it, put ground coffee and a filter over each mug, and pour the water in the middle. It can be set to brew into both mugs or just one mug. Most of the time it is set for just one mug and brews just in time for her to put her half n half and sugar in it and head out the door. Then when I get up I swap the two trays and brew my mug up.
We also have a French press around here that does one cup at a time, and that makes real good coffee as well.
