coffeepot n : tall pot in which coffee is brewed
- alternative spelling of coffee pot
A coffee pot is a kitchen implement; a cooking pot in the kettle family. A coffee pot is also a container to hold freshly brewed coffee. There are many types and styles.
The traditional coffee pot used for cooking, called a percolator, is made of metal and sits directly on the source of heat. Ground coffee is placed in a small internal basket sitting on a funnel; boiling water is forced through this repeatedly and soaks the coffee, thus producing an extract which becomes more concentrated as the coffee brewed.
A silver tea service may include a coffee pot.
