How long do you leave your coffee pot on with coffee in it?

Like if you make more coffee than you end up drinking right away, how long do you leave it on and in the pot before you just give up and dump it out? Does it depend on how much is left in the pot?

  • Mine turns off after two hours, I won't drink if after that regardless of how much is in the pot.

    My DH actually reheats coffee, it grosses me out. I have issues, I know.

  • We never drank enough coffee to make a whole pot. We use to have a big pot and sometimes it would sit there for a few days before we remembered to wash it out and brew a new pot. Now we have a single brew machine and LOVE it.

  • I'm weird about this, I won't drink coffee that's sat in a pot over an hour. I prefer to make coffee and brew more if I need it.

  • We shut it off, we drink our coffee as soon as we make it.
