Normally, of course, if I am talking about something being freshly brewed, it is beer. Not today. I had seen this advertised in a magazine, on ways to be eco-friendly, and had to try it as our coffee pot had kicked the can (faint rim shot anyone?). It is a Toddy Cafe and it cold brews your coffee. You put a pound of coffee in there, let it soak for 24 hours, and then let it drain into the carafe below. It produces a smoother coffee that also has, or so the claim goes, 67% less acidity (this is a BIG one for me!) than regularly brewed coffee, and uses no electricity up to this point. To get hot coffee, use 1/3 concentrate to 2/3 boiling water. I must say, so far, I am in love.
