Cold Brew September 4, 2016

Does the phrase “Cold Brew”  bring to mind a six pack?


In a less enlightened era, iced coffee was made with leftover hot-brewed coffee that had been sitting out too long. The first specialty cold-brewing apparatus, called the Toddy, hit the scene in 1964. Until the 2000s, it was a pretty niche thing.

Maura Judkis: Whatever happened to plain iced coffee? Cold-brew.

Cold brew, or cold water extract, refers to the process of steeping coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for an extended period. Cold brew coffee is not to be confused with iced coffee, which generally refers to coffee that is brewed hot and then chilled by pouring over or adding ice, though iced coffee can refer to cold brew coffee served on ice.

I use the Toddy System to make coffee concentrate.

My complaint is Toddy’s plastic “brew/drip”degrades over time.  I know, call the Waaambulance~

I bought Ovalware’s RJ3 Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker as a Toddy back-up. Will let you know what I think of it.
