Cold brewing as a brewing method is growing in popularity as a way to make smooth coffee with less acidity. The Toddy Cold Brew is our accessible choice to cold brewing, and here’s how to get it done:

  1. Insert the stopper into the outside bottom of the brewing container.
  2. Dampen the disc-shaped felt filter and insert it into the inside bottom of the brewing container.
  3. Open the top of your paper filter bag and place the bag into the brewing container. Measure out and pour 340g of coarse-ground coffee into the bag. Our ‘Ground for Plunger’ option on our product packs is perfect.
  4. Measure and pour 7 cups of water into the bag. Stir the coffee grounds gently with a spoon or spatula to ensure saturation.
  5. Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.
  6. Place the brewing container on top of the glass decanter. Remove the stopper and let your coffee concentrate flow.
  7. Remove and discard paper filter and coffee grounds. Coffee concentrate will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.

When serving, start with 1 part coffee concentrate, 3 parts water, milk, or soy. Pour over ice for smooth iced coffee, or stir in steaming water for a gentle hot coffee. Our full-bodied bitter-free blends work great both ways, so let your tongue guide the way.
