Glass carafes are less expensive than thermal servers, break easy and do not store the temperature of the coffee by itself. FETCO uses self-regulating solid state PTC Semiconductor warmers: Resists overheating and maintains optimal serving temperature. Saves energy and helps preserve freshness - unlike some competitors' models that continuously heat until you switch it off.
Thermal servers can keep the fresh brewed coffee on a certain temperature level for at least one hour and more. Please keep in mind that brewed coffee should be sold and enjoyed within 60 minutes, since the flavor decreases after 60 minutes dramatically.
