I suppose that if I don't have a bike related subject to post about, writing anything related to coffee is a good substitute. It just so happens that we received a package from Williams-Sonoma yesterday with our new Toddy Cold Brew System. My wife loves coffee but her stomach is very sensitive. She has had to limit herself to one cup every few days. The Toddy system claims to brew coffee with 67% less acid than a regular cup of coffee. Hopefully this will once again allow us to partake in our beloved morning ritual, sitting in bed together, enjoying a cup of coffee while the kids are sound asleep.
This is what comes in the box; a white plastic bucket with a hole in the bottom, a stopper for that hole, two filters good for about ten brews each, and a glass decanter with a plastic lid.
Don't forget to plug the hole with the stopper before you begin. You place a filter in the bottom of the bucket and pour in a cup of water. You then pour in about six ounces of course ground coffee, pour in more water then more coffee.
Once you've got all the water and coffee added into the bucket you use the back of a spoon to gently pat the coffee into the water making sure that all of the grounds are wet. Don't Stir! Stirring is supposed to produce a weak brew and clog up the filter.
