Cold Brew Coffee – More brag than recipe

August 2, 2010

As I was slowly backing out of the driveway yesterday, Alex yelled at me to stop.  This action not being atypical, I looked up to see whether I was about to hit a) the fence or b) the house.  You can not imagine my confusion, when I realized that I was close to hitting neither.  He suddenly jumped out of the car and ran to the front porch.  The UPS man, who only yesterday destroyed our mailbox, had delivered another package.  A surprise package.  For me.  How exciting!

Alex, bless his heart, had ordered me a Toddy!    I can now easily create cold brewed coffee to my heart’s content.  So, here is the recipe:

Cold Brew Coffee

  • 1 pound coffee
  • 9 cups water

Combine, and let sit for 12 hours.  Then strain.  What awaits you is a heavenly coffee concentrate.

Of course, you don’t really need a Toddy to do this, it just makes the whole process a bit easier. . .   You can see here where Casey made it without one. . . and it looks just as heavenly (if a bit messier).
