    Cold Brew Coffee

    I have over the years made my Toddy coffee and have owned a espresso drive tru and I would not label this Toddy as espresso as it is not made in the way espress has been made for decades however I do not for my coffee drink ever use 200 degrees of pressured water at 130. pounds per inch to make it. For me by controlling the grind the type of my beans the ratio of grounds to water and time of soak I make a better tasting non acidic, not bitter and in my tastes more caffeine drink than the espresso machine. And I guess we should call our cold brews an American coffee drink

    I make mine with 1 ounce ground to 2.5 ounce H2O, this ratio needs to be 4 H2O to 1 cold brew for like a coffee drink, I have never tried making a less stronger cold brew as I like mine very strong and since I control the brewing, roasting and grinding process it works great for me and my wife uses the 4 to 1 for her Americano's

    i started using a French Press over 30 years ago when I was on the road, went to a major grocery store grabbed some of their beans, had my little grinder with me at all times, threw in the grounds filled it with water next morning I had some wonderful coffee, years later I found the Toddy Maker, when I was in the same town for a while I would use it and always traveled with a cooler, would fill it with the motel's ice to keep it cold. I might note this was in California, there was no Charbucks, oops Starbucks at that time. When I moved back to Oregon when I got off the road, I opened an Espresso drive tru used only my Toddy Maker Brew as my espresso shots, heat never touched my untill the steam milk was poured over it. By then I had figured out how to make 5 gallons at a time. Since I r...

By then I had figured out how to make 5 gallons at a time. Since I roast and blend my coffee I find that blending 4 to 5 different quality beans I have a coffee that is high in caffeine no acid and taste like coffee, I grind this for cold brew pretty fine not the normal course grind. I love you idea and a person can use you process very easy. Thanks for sharing

    Ultimate Caffeinated Smoothie

    Hello Tomatoskins, I own a little drive-tru espresso shop and one of the espresso blends I roast is white espresso this has twice the caffeine as a starbuck espresso, not hard on the stomach and has a nice nutty flavor. Having commercial blenders are really good, and I just make it like it like my real no sugar added milk shakes, using how many shots of my Jolt fruit and yogurt. I do really appreciate you posting this, as I took your recipe and added to it, thank you.
