Reviews around ice (4.18 of 5)

  • We would buy the imported bottled coffee from the local japanese grocery instead of buying the weak and overly-sweet ice coffee we get here
  • This makes great iced coffee in a reasonably simple and compact vessel.
  • Easy to clean up, easy to use, and it makes great iced coffee
  • It's simple, compact, easy to clean up and makes great iced coffee.
  • The only downside is you'll get spoiled by the quality, and when you buy a cold pressed coffee in a coffee shop, you'll get pissed off because they charge $4 for two inches of coffee with cold water and ice.

Reviews around cup (4.18 of 5)

  • Diluting it with hot water makes a great cup of coffee.
  • Perfect ,, love love love a great cup of ice coffee it makes,
  • There's no waste to dispose of at all at the campsite and none to haul home - at least as far as producing the cup of coffee is concerned
  • In contrast, the Toddy System allows you to brew a fiercely intense cup of coffee with no acids, no oiliness to irritate the gut.

Reviews around way (4.14 of 5)

  • I have been making iced coffee the cold brew way for a few months with two jars and a strainer
  • This thing is made of very poor quality glass and plastic and is a messy way to cold brew coffee
  • I think the Toddy Cold Brew System is the best way to make coffee.
  • Well, this way of brewing coffee eliminates all of that
  • I learned the hard way and lost a lot of coffee all over the counter.

Reviews around thing (4.06 of 5)

  • This Brewing System makes great coffee and that is the most important thing.
  • And make coffee just twice a month is the best thing ever
  • so my particular recipe is 1/3 c concentrate, 1/3 c water, 1/3 c fat free Half n Half, 1 tbsp syrup (vanilla or organic maple), ice.
  • Not gonna lie, I thought it was the weirdest thing until I decided I had to try it
  • When I used the 2-5-2 method, the thing would get clogged every single time, which is a real problem when you're dealing with a large quantity of coffee concentrate

Reviews around concentrate (3.85 of 5)

  • It's easy, it makes great coffee concentrate, and it's inexpensive.
  • Then there's the problem of having to have a kettle of boiling water ... and then the recipe of 1 part concentrate to 3 parts boiling water
  • The Toddy Cold Brew system make really good coffee concentrate
  • and then you have enough coffee concentrate for about a week!
  • Want great coffee concentrate that lasts for weeks in your fridge

Reviews around flavor (3.84 of 5)

  • As it needs to steep for 12-24 hours in the fridge, this gives it ample time to pick up all sorts of refrigerator smells which can taint the flavor of the coffee.
  • The flavor that cold brew provides is like no other coffee I’ve ever had
  • The concentrate is great for making mocha lattes; mocha cakes, icing, and other goodies; adding to roasts for a lovely dark flavor; just a quick cup of coffee.
  • I have never had a problem with the acidity of coffee, and when I tried cold-brewed, it was the bland taste that lacked all the complex flavor notes that drove me away
  • I would be willing to bet that all the people that wrote off cold brewing for "bad flavor" or weakness messed up the grind or didn't start with good coffee.

Reviews around water (3.29 of 5)

  • It's the easiest was to make lots of coffee, it's concentrated so you add either hot or cold water to the concentrate

Reviews around handle (2.36 of 5)

  • However the handle can not even begin to support the weight of the plastic top when filled with coffee and water.
  • It would be nice if the handle was sturdier or a permanent part of the container.
  • Yes, the handle is a bit flimsy, but I just use it for extra support as I pour with the main container
  • The handle is a bit flimsy, and the collars on the plastic brew pot where it sets atop the glass container could be better designed.
  • We needed a new carafe (one bad part of the system; needs a handle; easy to drop and break) so bought a whole new system so we could have a second brewing container.

Reviews around stomach problem (2.33 of 5)

  • so my particular recipe is 1/3 c concentrate, 1/3 c water, 1/3 c fat free Half n Half, 1 tbsp syrup (vanilla or organic maple), ice.
  • Wonderful for folks with stomach problems, since it removes much of the acid in your coffee.
  • I can now have coffee and no stomach problems (although I don't drink a lot of coffee).
  • I emailed the manufacturer, and they said the plastic is not made with BPA, and that is a great plus!I would recommend this to anyone, and have purchased this for many, as well as got additional decanters for myself!
  • I have a lot of stomach problems so drinking brewed coffee or espresso is a lot like playing Russian roulette

Reviews around filter (2.30 of 5)

  • All packaged ground coffee has dust which will easily clog the filter and it is difficult to wet all the grounds effectively.
  • The filters aren't easy to clean and with multiple uses, the coffee runs more and more slowly through the filter.
  • The filter is fantastic and there are no coffee grounds getting through that bad boy!
  • Trying to get the coffee out of this thing when the filter is clogged is nearly impossible, and it ruins the filter
  • The filter is really only good after one use even though Toddy claims you can rinse it.

  • Using fresh ground dark roast coffee beans does make a difference
  • Using fresh ground dark roast coffee beans does make a difference

Reviews around plastic (2.05 of 5)

  • It has a huge reservoir to steep the coffee in, and a glass decanter with a soft plastic sealing lid to store in your fridge
  • This is the first time I'm replacing it; company sent a free plastic reservoir a number of years ago when there was a leak.
  • The brewing container is pretty cheap plastic, otherwise I would rate it a 5.
  • safe - the glass part it says is dishwasher safe, but the plastic says some places safe some places not
  • The system is made of a flimsy plastic brewing chamber and an extremely lightweight, thin glass carafe.

Reviews around bite (1.83 of 5)

  • A bit complicated to get stared, recommend reading the directions a few times.
  • Towards the end of the filter life it takes a little bit longer for all the coffee to drain out, but I don't mind
  • For about $30 you could get 6 filters (instead of 2) and the plastic top bit from Toddy's
  • You need to experiment a bit to come up with th correct concoction, but once you get it right, it's really great
  • You get a little bit of grit at the end of the coffee if the grind is a bit

Reviews around pound (1.61 of 5)

  • If you like the resulting coffee, get the Toddy System; if not, you've only wasted a pound of coffee.
  • They're noisy, messy and take forever to grind up 3 pounds of coffee beans.
  • Not to mention, a pound of coffee every two weeks is a heck of a lot cheaper than using those pods every day
  • I have been making iced coffee off and on for a few years now by grinding up a pound of beans and mixing it up with water in a 1 gallon cambro container, letting it sit out for about 24 hours, then straining it with coffee filters in a wire mesh strainer.
  • But I like using the pound better, as you make coffee less often

  • Fourteen hours seems like the ideal time to me.

Reviews around stopper (1.39 of 5)

  • Allow mixture to cool completely, then add 4T PURE vanilla extract (do not use imitation vanilla).Bottle and enjoy

  • Stopper falls out if you aren't SUPER careful to get it in good
  • The stopper which holds the liquid in the brewing container seems kind of primative, but it works.
  • The stopper falls out, so I had to use a big rubber band to keep it in place overnight
