Word of the Day


Pronunciation /kəˈraf/ /kəˈrɑːf/
An open-topped glass flask used for serving wine or water in a restaurant.

Late 18th century from French, from Italian caraffa, probably based on Arabic g̣arafa ‘draw water’.


No, don’t whine about it. It’s still morning here, so this carafe is designed for coffee.

No matter what your time of day
Whether, sunny, dark or gray,
Morning, noon or night.
May your outlook stay full bright.
