Toddy Coffee


Water:   good water; preferably well filtered water, or distilled.
Coffee:   fresh, either whole beans, or coarsely ground.


If you have whole bean coffee:
      2 cups of water for every one cup of beans

If you have coarsely ground coffee beans:
      3 cups of water for every one cup of beans


If you are starting with whole beans, grind them coarsely.
Add the beans and water together in a wide-mouthed glass jar with a lid.
Mix once to get all the coarse coffee grains wet (it is okay for them to float).
Allow them to stand for 8 to 12 hours in temperatures between 50oF and 65oF.
Filter out all solids.
Pour remaining liquid in jar and store in refrigerator (for up to 3 weeks).

Serving Information:

Mix 2 or 3 one-ounce "shots" with 12 ounces of either:
  • boiling or steamed water
  • simmered or steamed milk
to make your individual coffee drink.


NOTE 1:  Due to being cold extracted, Toddy coffee contains caffeine, but it does not contain the oils of regular or espresso coffee, hence the longer shelf-life.  It is gentler in the stomach than coffees prepared with hot-extraction methods.
