First, place the rubber stopper in the bottom of the brewer. Then, dampen the filter and place that in the Toddy as well.
2. Start Brewing
Add one cup of water to the Toddy and evenly distribute half of the coffee on top of the water. This ground coffee is more coarse than coffee we would use for a French Press. Then, in a slow, circular motion, add 3 cups of water to saturate the entire bed of coffee.
3. More Coffee
Next, add the rest of the coffee and let sit for about 5 minutes.
4. More Water
Once again pouring in a slow, circular motion, add the remaining 4 cups of water. With the back of a spoon, gently press on the coffee grounds to ensure that they are fully saturated with water. Be careful not to stir or agitate the grounds as it could clog the filter when it comes time to drain the coffee.
5. Let Rest
Place the brewer in a refrigerator and allow the coffee to brew for 12-18 hours. Consider aiming for 15 hours and experimenting with shorter or longer brew times for future batches.
6. Begin Extraction
Remove the Toddy from the Fridge and then sperate the rubber stopper from the brewer and allow the coffee concentrate to drain into the vessel.
Because it is a concentrate, we recommend diluting to taste and serving over ice. Cheers.
