Toddy® Cold Brew System
Instructions

 

Two Brewing Method Options

METHOD 1: Toddy® Dual Filtration  New Paper Filter Bag + Reusable Felt Filter

• Recommended for easy clean up
• Most cold brew per batch
• Works with more coffee grind sizes and smaller tea leaves

Coffee Concentrate:

For the best flavor, start with 12 ounces (340 g) of coarsely ground coffee and 7 cups (56 fl. oz./1.65 L) of filtered water by volume.

  1. Fill - First, insert the stopper into the outside bottom of the brewing container; then, dampen the discshaped felt filter and insert it into the inside bottom of the brewing container.

    Next, open the top of your paper filter bag and place the bag into the brewing container. Pour 12 ounces (340 g) of coarse-ground coffee into the bag, followed by 7 cups (56 fl. oz./1.65 L) of water. Stir coffee grounds gently with a spoon or spatula, to ensure saturation of grounds. Tightly twist the top of the bag to close it.

  2. Brew - Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.

  3. Filter - Remove the stopper and let your coffee concentrate flow into the glass decanter. Remove and discard paper filter and coffee grounds. Coffee concentrate will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.

  4. Serve - We recommend starting with a ratio of 1 part coffee concentrate to 3 parts water, milk or soy. Mix to taste, making your coffee as strong or as weak as you prefer. For rich, smooth iced coffee, simply pour coffee concentrate and water, milk or soy over ice. Stir concentrate with steaming hot water for a flavorful yet gentle cup of hot coffee. See our cold brewed coffee and tea recipe guide for more great ideas.

Tea Concentrate:

For the best flavor, start with 8 ounces (225 g) of loose tea leaves and 9 cups (72 fl. oz./2.13 L) of water.

  1. Fill - First, insert the stopper into the outside bottom of the brewing container; then, dampen the disc shaped felt filter and insert it into the inside bottom of the brewing container as usual.

    Next, open the top of your paper filter bag and place the bag into the brewing container. Pour 8 ounces (230 g) of tea leaves into the bag, followed by 9 cups (72 fl. oz./2.13 L) of water. Stir tea leaves gently with a spoon or spatula, to ensure saturation of the leaves. Tightly twist the top of the bag to close it.

  2. Brew - Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.

  3. Filter - Remove the stopper and let your tea concentrate flow into the glass decanter. Remove and discard paper filter and coffee grounds. Tea concentrate will stay fresh for up to a week in your refrigerator.

  4. Serve - We recommend starting with a ratio of 1 part tea concentrate to 7 parts water, milk or soy. Mix to taste, making your tea as strong or as weak as you prefer. Serve hot or iced. See our cold brewed coffee and tea recipe guide for more great ideas.

METHOD 2: Toddy® Classic   Reusable Felt Filter

• Our original tried-and-true method developed in 1964
• Polished cold-brew concentrate with virtually no sediment
• Requires only reusable felt filters

Coffee Concentrate:

For the best flavor, start with 12 ounces (340 g) of coarsely ground coffee and 7 cups (56 fl. oz./1.65 L) of filtered water by volume.

    Next, add 1 cup of water into the bottom of the Toddy® Cold Brew System brewing container and 6 ounces of ground coffee. Slowly pour 3 more cups of water over the grounds, in a circular motion. Wait 5 minutes, then add the remaining 6 ounces of ground coffee. Finally, slowly add the last 3 cups of water. DO NOT STIR (stirring the bed of grounds can result in a clogged filter).

    Lightly press down on the topmost grounds with the back of a spoon to ensure all grounds get wet.

  2. BREW - Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature 12 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.
