This may seem gross to some of you hard core coffee drinkers. And......I wouldn't subject a guest in my home to this, but it's okay for my husband and I. We drink a pot of coffee until it's gone, even if it's 24 hours old. We just reheat it in our microwave. (I'm drinking some right now....mmmmm!) With coffee as expensive as it is, I can't see wasting it. I've tried using the grounds twice to extend our coffee supply, but it tastes really weak. (So I just add them to our compost instead!) I heard recently that the reason the coffee at Starbuck's, Dunkin' Donuts, and McDonald's tastes so good is because they will throw a pot out after a certain amount of time......like if it's more than 17 minutes old! I guess my coffee will never stand up to theirs!!!
