So I have one of those stove top Coleman Drip coffee makers, and was wondering has anyone figured out a way to keep the coffee hot without burning it / boiling it off? I would rather not keep it on the stove going through breakfast, but if I have to....

Maybe pour the hot coffee into a good quality thermos type of container?

Hmm. Not a terrible idea. I would definately prefer not plastic when dealing with hot foods / liquids.

Ozark Trail 64oz double wall vacuum insulated bottle. Looks just about perfect to keep coffee hot...

Turn the flame as low as manageable, then set the pot offset so only a corner is on an edge of the flame.  it really doesn't take a lot to keep stuff hot...  I do this routinely for hot water...

That's what people did back in the day of Coleman gas lanterns/stoves. You can shut the stove down after perking a big pot of coffee, saving fuel, and no USB port required.

 At home I use a ninja coffee bar with the insulated stainless steel carafe,  And while the carafe I have for my Coleman drip coffee maker is stainless steel it is not insulated. I guess I just got a little thick in the head forgetting about the old school approach.

I don't have one the OP coffee makers, I use an Enamel Pot and make Cowboy Coffee. What I do after brewing my coffee is place the pot in the ashes from the night before's fire, they are usually still hot enough to keep the coffee warm.

I use an old dripolator coffee maker at the cottage and I just put it back on the burner from time to time to warm it up while I am working on cooking breakfast.  Then, once breakfast is over and the big canning pot of water is on a burner to heat up for the dish water, I put the coffee pot next to the canning pot, touching it but not on a burner, and that works great to keep the coffee hot.

Sounds like someone just needs a 502.  🙂  I can’t imagine anything able to simmer as low as a 502.

Or just pop the carafe on a burner to reheat when it get cold.  No reason to keep it hot when you can make it hot again.

I use a 1/4" plate steel under the pot. Preheat the steel and it keeps the coffee hot for a while.

I had one of those Coleman drip coffeemakers you put on the stove but it took up a lot of room on the stove. You really cant use both burners if it is on there.I ended up selling it.

 White stove were you using it on? I have used mine on my 424  As well as my classic 2 burner propane and have never had a real space problem with it. I can easily fit a 10" skillet next to it.

 I also have a Brinkmann 2 burner stainless steel stove that I couldn't possibly fit the coffee maker and a skillet on.

That is what I do with mine. Put some hot water in the bottle first to get the bottle warmed up. Dump out the water and then put your coffee in. By pre warming the bottle, you are not using the heat in your coffee to warm it up. Your coffee will stay nice and hot!

Then if you have a lot of people that are drinking coffee, you can start another pot.

An old Stanley Thermos that you can find at a thrift store does the same thing.

True, I have a bit of an issue with the vintage style thermos, and not sure if the Stanley is the same way as Thermos brand, but the glass liners I have broken a few of them, so they tend to give me pause. I lke the stainless vacuum insulated tumblers and bottles because there is no glass, and very little plastic...

I think a large Stanley from my local Goodwill when they have them, are running about $2.50

Stanelys are all stainless.  I have 3 at least, one NIB, and one is HUGE.

Set a pot of water on another burner while waiting for the coffee to make. Use the boiling water to pre-heat the Thermos. Pour the water out when the coffee is done and the thermos will keep it hot for a long time.
