Ok, for all of the coffee drinkers. If you fix a pot of coffee and you do not drink it all while hot, does anyone "re-warm" the coffee and drink it? I.e pour from a cold pot and nuke in microwave? If so what is your limit before you decide to make a fresh pot? Yes I know, why not drink the whole pot, but some times that is not the case.
I personally have a 12 hour window of drinking coffee. My wife will not drink re-warmed coffee. She says it taste stale. If We have company, I will make a fresh pot, and never re-warm, but if it is just me and my wife we debate this topic often. I claim she is nuts, she says she knows I am crazy. Debate on Puff!
I don't serve re-warmed to anyone else, but I hate to see stuff wasted. I use the French press a lot, so that prevents waste, but if I come home from work and there is coffee in the pot from where my wife brewed it that morning- yeah, I'll zap it.
I do this all the time. Much better re-warmed than burnt from sitting on a hot plate for hours. The thing is to brew the coffee and then take it off the heat right away. No sense in re-warming already burnt coffee. Nasty! I've also done the iced coffee thing from the leftover dregs in the pot. A little ice, cream and some caramel or vanilla syrup and it tastes just like one of those fancy coffee drinks you get for $5.00 at the kiosk in the mall.
