This could possibly be the easiest way to brew and consume coffee, though it does require some patience. The extensive 12-14 hours of brew time brings out plenty of rich, sweet, and chocolatey flavors, and also allows the coffee to store really well. It’s hard to argue with an ice-cold cup of coffee on a hot day, especially when it can be brewed in larger batches so it’s ready whenever you want it.
12 - 14 hours
1.5 liters (concentrate)

Before You Brew
Fresh Coffee The single most important part of a good cup is starting with high quality, freshly roasted coffee. We aim to drink our coffee within a 14 day window of being roasted.
Purified Water Start with filtered water for best results. If your tap water already has a lot of dissolved solids then it will negatively impact your ability to brew the coffee.
Scale Consider purchasing a scale for your brewing. You'll find it will really boost the consistency and quality in your morning cup of coffee.
What You Need
Place stopper in the bottom of Toddy. After rinsing with cold water, place the cloth filter in the inset in the brewer.
Grind 300g freshly roasted coffee on a coarse setting. Add the freshly ground coffee to the brewer.
Gently pour the full 2.1L volume of water over the bed of coffee, making sure to evenly saturate all the grounds.
Immediately cover, and keep covered for the duration of the steep time.
After 12-14 hours, remove cover, place brewer over carafe, and remove stopper to begin the draining process. This can take about 15 minutes - if the dripping stalls, use a spoon to gently stir and break up the grounds until draining continues. Dilute with equal parts water, milk, or alternative of your choice and enjoy!
