Iced toddy has returned and we’re ready for hot weather to accompany it! We spent nearly a month testing different beans, blends, brewing times and water to coffee ratios. Somehow toddy was on your radar because many of you came asking for it before we were done perfecting it. Well, we’re especially proud of what we’ve come up with! It’s exceptionally refreshing, with full bodied chocolate notes.
For those of you new to toddy, this is an iced coffee drink we brew as a concentrate using cold water, lots of coffee grounds, and lots of time – nearly a full day for brewing! The cold water does not extract the high citrusy notes or as much of the acids that you will find in drip coffee. The lower notes that give coffee its body and richness are extracted instead. The result is a smooth, rich, almost sweet, refreshing drink that doesn’t taste watered down or bitter like the classic iced coffee. People whose stomaches react to the acidity of hot coffee, especially enjoy the lower acidity of toddy. Maybe if we all switch to drinking toddy, then warm summer weather will have to grace us as well!
