A Brief on Carafes

Coffee carafe is the partner of your favorite kitchen appliance. Coffee Carafe makes your life easier especially in the morning when you do all the rush. Coffee carafe comes in different sizes. If you intend to bring your coffeemaker in the office as your personal appliance, the 4-cup size is ideal for you. Because it does not consume much space, it can fit even in small office spaces. But if your whole family loves serving hot coffee all throughout the day or you intend to share it with your co-workers, go for the 10 or 12 cup size.

When choosing the material of your Coffee carafe, you have several options. The most popular is the glass type. The transparent container allows you to see your coffee while brewing and check instantly the remaining volume. For others who want their coffee to be always hot, the thermal type is preferable.

In modern days, more advanced and smart looking coffee carafes are available in retails store or in malls. The improvement in glass technologies made the carafes flame proof and microwave save. Those carafes are generally made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is a type of glass with the main glass-forming constituents silica and boron oxide. Borosilicate glasses are known for having very low coefficients of thermal expansion, making them resistant to thermal shock, more so than any other common glass.
