Many times when traveling I will make coffee in
the morning and will have about a half pot left over. Knowing I
will want some later in the day and not wanting to take time to
fill the thermos I put a washcloth under the pot. The pot then kinda
jams between the bottom of the coffee ground holder and the washcloth.
We liked the brown color because it doesn't show stains.
I should say that this is the way we store the pot,
even when empty. Saves on limited storage space.
