Myth #5 — Real coffee drinkers don’t wash the pot; they just rinse it out, and that’s okay.

Coffee Pot - CBM

THE TRUTH:  The brown build-up you see inside a clear coffee carafe is organic material which does grow bacteria. Yes, of course it’s okay to rinse it out and make another pot sometimes, but wash the pot/carafe frequently with soap and warm water. And, yes, boys, wash the handle, too. Do you remember where your fingers were just before you picked up that cafafe? Didn’t think so. Wash the handle.
