Cold brew coffee has become a popular choice among coffee lovers in recent years. It is made by steeping coffee grounds in cold or room temperature water for an extended period of time, usually 12-24 hours. The result is a coffee that is smoother, less acidic, and less bitter than coffee brewed with hot water. If you want to make cold brew coffee at home, a Toddy Cold Brew system is a great option. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use it:
Start by grinding your coffee beans to a coarse grind. You'll need about 1 cup of coffee grounds for every 4 cups of water.
Place the coffee grounds in the filter that comes with the Toddy Cold Brew system.
Wet the filter and coffee grounds with a small amount of water to help start the brewing process.
Slowly add 4 cups of cold water to the filter, making sure not to disturb the grounds too much.
Place the Toddy Cold Brew system in the fridge and let it steep for 12-24 hours.
After the steeping period is complete, remove the filter and discard the coffee grounds.
Pour the cold brew concentrate into a sealable container and store it in the fridge.
To serve, dilute the cold brew concentrate with water or milk to taste. You can also add ice, sweeteners, or other flavorings as desired.
With a Toddy Cold Brew system, you can easily make delicious cold brew coffee at home. Give it a try and see for yourself why cold brew has become such a popular choice.
