I keeps the coffee hot for hours, it is easy handling and cleanup. Leaks like crazy. For this much money I expected a professional piece of equipment.
How long will coffee stay hot? There is probably no exact answer, but these are second to none in keeping beverages hot. To make them as effective as possible, fill them with boiling water for about 10 minutes, dump it out and then add your hot coffee. It should stay good and hot for at least 6 hours. We take these on outdoor ministry outreaches giving hot coffee to folks along one of our outdoor malls in the very cold winter weather and after 4 hours, it's still too hot to drink. How long does it keep the coffee hot? A couple of hours.
