Yes this will work.
For a cheaper alternative try a beaker warmed over a gas flame.
Only a few years ago I (very briefly) worked in a hospital
laboratory where this was the norm. They only had 1 serious fire EVERY year.
Embedding stations are expensive, but they are specifically
designed for that purpose.
If you are really keen on cutting corners I would suggest you
invest in a proper wax bath. Sorry, that's not the proper name, they look
like a hot water urn, the temperature is adjustable, & they have a neat
little tap at the base.
The problem with a coffee pot is that wax will solidify in the
spout, not to mention its a big bulky item to be waving around full of 60C
