Keep It Warm

For our cold-weather party, we served our favorite hot brew in a 30-cup, insulated electric coffee urn.

All the Fixins

Coffee is great, but flavored coffee is even better. Set up a spread of sweet syrups, mocha sauce, cream and milk (including non-dairy varieties) so your guests can customize to their hearts' content.
