How long will my coffee stay good In a Thermos carafe? It's a glass double-walled vacuum Insulated Thermos brand carafe. I preheat before I put the coffee In. I've heard the longest I should I keep It in their Is 2 hours. But, what If I want to keep It In there longer? Beats keeping It on a burner!!

The truth it doesn't "stay fresh" at all. The moment you brew your coffee it begins to stale. After that its more a question of your own taste as to how stale the coffee has to become before you no longer enjoy it. But I agree that this is much preferred over a glass carafe on a burner where it gets scorched and water evaporates where what you end up with is not as much stale coffee as it is burnt sludge, only slightly preferable over crude oil.
