A Note From Sagebrush's Owner
Cold Brew coffee; isn't that a new catch phrase? You hear it everywhere and it has a bunch of definitions. I've seen Hario iced pour overs called cold brew (I call those iced coffees). I've seen some weird bottled drink that tastes awful called a cold brew. I've also seen an iced Toddy called cold brew. If you're going to ask me for a definition, the third one is the charm. I believe true cold brew coffee begins as an Iced Toddy. I love this stuff. It is so smooth and pure and clean. The toddy maker produces a pure coffee concentrate that can store in your fridge for up to 2 weeks (although I prefer it within 1 week). Once brewed, it is convenient, versatile and delicious.
If you choose to add the coffee sample, we'll pick our current favorite available coffee for cold brew.

About the Toddy System:
During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat. Todd Simpson, a chemical engineering graduate of Cornell, and who developed the Toddy cold brew system, discovered that high temperature facilitates the release of undesirable flavor elements.
A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted during the brewing process. Some of those compounds, including certain oils and fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature. During the cold brew process, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperature (this only occurs after a rich liquid coffee concentrate has been produced).
Deceptively simple, cold water brewing extracts the delicious flavor compounds (and some of the caffeine) from coffee beans, but leaves behind myriad bitter oils and biting fatty acids, including undesirable elements such as ketones, esters and amides.
These are the same bitter acids and fatty oils that surface to the top of your hot cup of coffee, and give hot-brewed coffee that familiar 'bite' (thus the reason that some 8 out of 10 people attempt to soften the acidic taste by adding milk or cream to their coffee).
The cold brew process creates a perfectly balanced and distinctively smooth cup of coffee - served steaming hot or iced cold. You're invited to taste the Toddy difference: the same taste that has delighted coffee drinkers for nearly 50 years
- Note: Although the concentrate lasts for a couple of weeks, it requires a full 12oz bag of coffee to brew a batch.
