Cold Brew with the Toddy Cold Brew System

Cold brew coffee has gained popularity, and it is not just a summer trend, but a year-round pleasure for many. The Toddy Cold Brew System promises to make this brewing method more accessible and enjoyable at home. This review takes a deep dive into the features, benefits, and potential drawbacks of this system, offering a comprehensive look at its ability to revolutionize your coffee routine.

Basics of the Toddy Cold Brew System

Toddy Cold Brew System includes a brewing container in which the coffee is brewed, a glass carafe to store the finished beverage, a reusable filter needed to separate the coffee grounds from the brew, and a rubber stopper that holds the coffee while brewing and allows for easy release when done. 

This system takes advantage of the cold water brewing method, which is a fancy way of saying that it slowly extracts the flavors from the coffee grounds without using heat. This slower process results in a coffee concentrate that is milder and less bitter and acidic than what you’re used to with hot brew. If you’ve ever found coffee too harsh for your stomach, Toddy’s Cold Brew may be the mild alternative you’ve been looking for.

One of the best things about the Toddy system is how much coffee it can make in one go. It can produce up to 12 cups of coffee concentrate that you can store and use for several days. Whether you like your coffee iced, hot, or blended into a latte, this concentrate will do it all. The principle of operation is simple: you simply mix coarsely ground coffee with cold water in a container, wait for about 12-24 hours, and then let the brewed coffee drain into the carafe. 

But coffee is not the only thing that Toddy is good for. It’s also great for making tea, adding another level of utility to your kitchen. If you like to experiment and try new things, Toddy will not disappoint you. Since it’s a concentrate, you can dilute your drink however you like. A little water or milk can be turned into a traditional cup of coffee or tea, or you can get creative and use it in recipes for desserts, cocktails, and more. 

Ease of Use and Maintenance

The first run of the Toddy Cold Brew System is no big deal. It comes with clear instructions and there aren’t too many details to worry about, meaning you can start brewing without any headaches. It’s designed to be simple: all you need is some ground coffee and water, and the patience to wait for the drink to do its thing. 

Once the coffee is made, using the Toddy is as easy as setting it up. The process is largely free, which is ideal for those with busy schedules. You set up your brew, go about your day (or sleep all night), and come back to a delicious cold beer waiting for you. 

The filter and rubber plug only need to be quickly rinsed under the tap. The glass carafe that holds your coffee concentrate can be easily cleaned with soapy water or simply put it in the dishwasher. A reusable filter needs a little attention to keep it in great shape; you’ll want to make sure it’s completely dry between uses to prevent mold. 

Potential Disadvantages

While there are many positives to the Toddy Cold Brew System, there are a few things to be aware of before jumping into it. First, its size. The brew container is on the larger side, which can be a bit of a problem if you’re working with limited counter space or a small fridge. It’s small, but if you’re in a smaller apartment or want to keep your kitchen space extra tidy, it’s worth considering.

Another point to pay attention to is the time it takes to brew. If you like to prepare coffee in minutes, slow brewing can be a test of your patience. Toddy takes anywhere from 12 to 24 hours to brew, so you’ll have to wait a bit. You need to plan if you want to wake up to a cold beer or prepare it for a meeting.
