Happy Monday! Boots the Badass Coffee Babe here . . . to talk Toddy!
How many of you out there have tried Toddy Coffee? If you have, you recall both the smooth and carmel-ly sweetness of this brew and the ease in its preparation. If you haven’t tried Toddy, you are going to have to trust me, Boots the Badass Coffee Babe and expert on all things coffee: this is some seriously good coffee!
I remember going on a really crazy trip with one of my sisters. We were traveling up the Oregon coast and she insisted that we stop and check out one of those cute Victorian-esque seaside towns that you love to hate. You know the kind. The sidewalks are narrow and overgrown with thorny rose bushes and stickery shrubberies. Your fellow tourists are into cutthroat sidewalk chicken and think nothing of edging you out of the herd and into oncoming traffic. Husbands are lagging. Children are crying. Dogs are peeing on the pansies. Not exactly my idea of fun.
After what felt like days of being on a forced march, I begged her for a break. She agreed to seek refuge from the madding crowd and we went into an ice cream shop that smelled of vanilla waffle cones, cherry jubilee, and coffee, sweet coffee. It was in this emporium we found the Font of Immaculate Conceptualized Toddy. I confess: after trying Toddy, I was hooked. It truly is delicious . . . and I learned that it is as easy as 1-2-3 to brew.
Toddy is brewed using a passive, cold-water brewing method that is ideal for the person who is super busy and who likes to repeatedly hit snooze in the morning; who doesn’t want to go to work uncaffeinated and who wants delicious coffee any time of day!
In this series, we are going to talk about
- Why Toddy Tastes So Good
- How to Brew Toddy and finally
- How to Drink Toddy.
Well, today is all about Why Toddy Tastes So Good. First let me show you what a Toddy cold-brew pot looks like, and then we’ll go from there. This will all make sense by the end of segment #2 on How to Brew Toddy. By the time we get to How to Drink Toddy, you are going to be so happy you’ll be dancing on the barista’s coffee bar and hooting out corny lyrics from an obscure cowboy song.
Here is the Toddy Brewing Contraption before we go any further. You can click on the image to learn more about this Toddy maker:
And here is why Toddy cold-brewed coffee tastes so good:
- It’s designed to brew coffee with 67-percent less acid than coffee made with hot brew methods.
- Patented cold brew system uses regular coffee beans to create super smooth hot coffee, but with no electricity required.
- The Toddy Cold Brew System also makes tea, served hot or cold.
- Set includes brewing container with handle, glass decanter with lid, 2 reusable filters, 1 rubber stopper, set of instructions, and recipe guide.
- You get more out of your coffee beans, since the coffee concentrate stays fresh for up to 3 weeks.
Tummy sensitive to acid? Out on the trail with limited access to flame or fuel? Like your coffee hot and cold? Penny pinching and wanting to extract the max from those coffee beans? Brew some Toddy! The process brews a less-acidic coffee. It requires no electricity to brew. You get more out of your beans.
Coffee beans are full of various oils and acids. This is what gives coffee its delicious flavor. Cold-brewed Toddy produces less acid and is much more concentrated that hot-brewed, which makes it a great way to make iced coffee. Toddy will stay fresh in your refrigerator for 2 – 4 weeks — a blessing to all of you busy morning people!
During the winter months, I feel inclined to stick with a hot-brew method . . . but in the summer? I am all about Toddy! It is always good to go and, not only is it great for home coffee drinking, it is PERFECT for being out on the trail, on your boat, on a rock face, in a raft, on blue water . . . you get the idea. It is one of those brew methods that fits the bill for anywhere!
Fun, right? Try this cold-brew system out this summer. You’ll love the flavor profile and the convenience! And while we are at it, check out these coffee grinders that will help you to get your beans ground perfectly for your Toddy Adventure!
