Here's my

coffee maker.

Not what

you expected?


In the contraption is 1 lb. of freshly ground coffee beans and 2 qts. cold water. The mixture sits overnight (10-12 hrs) and is drained through a filter.

Read more about this cold water brewing system at the Toddy website.

Since I was thirteen I've been drinking coffee and it's my favorite morning beverage. Black, please.

The results is about a quart of concentrated coffee, which I dilute with boiling water.

Join me for a cup?

We have lots to talk about.


  1. Black for me, too, but I use a percolator to make mine.

  2. I saw this method on television once and thought it was facinating!

    I don't drink coffee.
    But if I did, I would dring it with lots of sugar and cream and flavors.
