Does it mean the server is part of the maker?

coffee maker

can be thought of as the piece of equipment used to make or brew the coffee.

In your example, the

coffee server

is the vessel used to deliver the brewed coffee especially of the coffee is brewed in a large urn. On many occassions, the coffee is brewed into a vessel, the coffee pot which can then be used for serving (your Mr Coffee is an example).

  • So it means the server is the pot, right?

  • In your example, yes, the server is the pot, and often coffee is served directly from the coffee pot in which it was brewed, unless it's drip filtered or pressed.

  • @user67265 Note, however, that a "server" may also be a person who delivers coffee to somebody else—such as in a restaurant. The same word can be used to describe both the container of the liquid and the agent of the delivery. it depends on what you're referring to. Commented May 6, 2018 at 20:09
  • @JasonBassford Got it.

No. Coffee makers usually include a coffee server when you purchase them. They just complete each other and sometimes they are sold separately.
