Cold brewed. Simply better.

Toddy's story begins in 1963 on a trip to the mountains of Peru, when Toddy's founder first tasted cold brewed coffee served hot. This smooth-drinking and flavorful cup of coffee made such an impression, that it inspired Todd Simpson to try his hand at replicating the cold brewing method. A few years later, the Toddy® Cold Brew System made its U.S. debut, generating curiosity and a loyal following.

Today Toddy, LLC is a privately held, woman-owned business (WBENC-certified) that is based in in Loveland, Colorado. As a trusted leader in specialty coffee, Toddy supplies home baristas along with craft roasters and many of the world's most beloved coffee shops with innovative cold brew solutions. Toddy strives to give back to the local and global coffee community, and fund coffee research that allows everyone to make better coffee. Toddy is passionate about all things cold brew, and they want to share that enthusiasm with everyone.

What is cold brew?

A centuries-old brewing method, "cold brew" simply refers to the temperature at which coffee is brewed rather than the temperature at which it's served. During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat. Ground coffee beans are steeped for an extended period of time (8 to 24 hours) to create a smooth, flavorful coffee extract that can be served hot or cold and will stay fresh for more than a week when refrigerated. 

Naturally sweet-tasting cold brew extract can be diluted with water or milk to create signature cold brew drinks or blended frozen beverages, infused with nitrogen to create a creamy nitro cold brew, or diluted with steaming hot water for those who like it hot. Perfect for serving a group with varied tastes, cold brew extract makes it possible for everyone to enjoy coffee or tea at their preferred strength.

How to Cold Brew

Toddy Cold Brew System

For the best flavor, start with 12 oz. (340 g) of coarsely ground coffee and 8 cups (64 fl. oz./1.9 L of filtered water by volume. If brewing tea, start with 8 oz. of loose tea leaves and 9 cups (72 fl. oz./2.13 L) of water.

Method 1: Dual Filtration, Coffee Concentrate

1 Fill | First, insert the stopper into the outside bottom of the brewing container; then dampen the disc-shaped felt filter and insert it into the inside bottom of the brewing container. Next, open the top of your paper filter bag and place the bag into the brewing container. Pour 12 ounces (340 g) of coarse-ground coffee into the bag, followed by 8 cups (64 fl. oz./1.9 L) of water. Stir coffee grounds gently with a spoon or spatula to ensure even saturation. Tightly twist the top of the bag to close it.

2 Brew | Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature 8 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.

3 Filter | Remove the stopper and let your coffee concentrate flow into the glass decanter. Remove and discard the paper filter and coffee grounds. Coffee concentrate will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.

4 Serve | We recommend starting with a ratio of 1 part coffee concentrate to 2 parts water or milk. Mix to taste, making your coffee as strong or as mild as you prefer. For rich, smooth iced coffee, simply pour coffee concentrate and water or milk over ice. For a flavorful, yet gentle cup of hot coffee, stir concentrate with steaming hot water.

Method 2: Classic, Coffee Concentrate

Next add 1 cup (250 mL) of water into the bottom of the Toddy brewing container and 6 ounces (170 g) of ground coffee. Slowly pour 3 more cups (700 mL) of water over the grounds in a circular motion. Wait 5 minutes, then add the remaining 6 ounces of ground coffee. Finally, slowly add the last 4 cups (950 mL) of water. DO NOT STIR (stirring the bed of grounds can result in a clogged filter).

2 Brew | Steep your coffee grounds at room temperature 8 to 24 hours to create a smooth, rich flavor.

3 Filter | Remove the stopper and let your coffee concentrate flow into the glass decanter, where it will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.
