How often do I need to change the coffee in airpots?
I was wondering how long coffee stays fresh in an airpot. I know it stays hot for a long time, but how long does it stay tasting good. How often should we empty our airpots?ANSWER:
As you know (but other readers may not) an airpot is a portable coffee container used in small coffee shops and also for business meeting and conference rooms.
The coffee is brewed into the airport, then the lid is closed. Coffee drinkers press a lever on the airpot and coffee pours into their cup or mug.
I don't have much experience with airpots, except as a coffee drinker. So I did a little research at the Bunn web site.
Their recommendation is to leave the coffee in the airpot for between 20 and 30 minutes before making a fresh brew.
If you want to stretch it a little longer, I recommend that you sample the brew every few minutes and get a feel for when the taste and quality are beginning to suffer.
You can find a range of different airpots at Amazon.com
