Coffee Toddy Cold-Brew Coffee System (TC-BOX)
The patented Coffee Toddy cold-brewed coffee system has been drawing rave reviews for over 30 years. Using only cold water, the Coffee Toddy extracts all the flavor, but hardly any of the acid, from ground coffee. The Coffee Toddy creates a super-smooth coffee concentrate you mix with water or milk to serve ice cold or piping hot.
Many coffee lovers find regular brewed coffee hard on the stomach; for the tens of millions of coffee lovers who suffer from acid sensitivity, the Coffee Toddy system is the best thing going. Cold brewing produces coffee that is naturally lower in acid, about 67% less acid than coffee brewed in conventional hot-brew coffeemakers.
Plus, there's no waste. The super-smooth coffee concentrate can be kept in the refrigerator up to two weeks and mixed with water and/or milk whenever you want a cup. It's a terrific way to make great iced coffee for summertime drinking.
During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat as a method of extracting the key flavor compounds from ground coffee. It leaves behind the bitter acids and fatty oils that you see on the top of a hot-brewed cup of coffee, compounds that are soluble only at high temperatures. The Coffee Toddy is easy to use: 1 lb. of coffee and 72 ozs. of water steep in the plastic brewing container for at least 12 hours to create the coffee concentrate. Then, it drains through a fliter into the glass carafe below, making it easy to keep in your fridge for up to two weeks.To make a cup, simply mix 1 part of the concentrate with 3 parts of water and/or milk and microwave if you want it hot. You can steep longer for a srronger concentrate (it will have a little more acid) and vary the mixing to suit your taste.
