Giant Coffee Urn In Service
THE U. S. Coast Guard base at New London, Connecticut, has been provided with a coffee urn which is believed to be the largest ever constructed. It holds 60 gallons of water and the handle on its cover is just within reach of an average size girl. The big coffee maker is the center of attraction on cold nights for men returning from chilly excursions aboard patrol boats.

    No idea why the water addition bit isn’t just on the one edge at the top, rather than centered. Certainly wouldn’t get past health & safety today, or height discrimination.

    That’s, by far, the most epic coffee related item I’ve ever seen.
