"(The Toddy) is the ultimate coffee maker." -The Washington Post Now you can create a 'coffeehouse' coffee - served steaming hot or iced cold, and in the comfort of your home - for much less than expensive signature coffee drinks! As important as those fresh roasted beans are to your cup of coffee, it's what you do with them that counts the most. In 1964, as a chemical engineering graduate of Cornell, Todd Simpson developed and patented a cold brew system that, using regular coffee beans, creates a superior-tasting cup of steaming HOT coffee. And, with 67% LESS ACID than coffee made by conventional hot brew methods, it's easier on sensitive stomachs. The Toddy coffee maker extracts the coffee bean's true delicious flavor and eliminates much of the acidity, producing a bold, super-smooth coffee that can be served one cup at a time. The Toddy brewer is also ideal for making tea - served hot or over ice.

There are other cold brew solutions that are easier to use and now cost much less than this one. If convenience is important to you, consider one of them instead.
For making the toddy, I don't follow their instructions exactly. Here's a better way: After wetting the spongy filter and putting it in place, coarsely grind 12 oz. of coffee and put it in the toddy maker. Then pour 1 quart of filtered water over the grounds slowly. Do not stir. Let that sit for 30 minutes. You'll see that the coffee has developed a crusty top to it. When the 30 minutes are over, pour another quart of filtered water over, slowly. Don't disturb the grounds. They'll start to foam up nicely--that's called the "bloom." Now it's ready to cold brew overnight. I put a plate over top just to keep dust and whatever out.
Letting it sit for that 30 minutes ensures that with the next quart of water, the grounds will more readily absorb the water and create the bloom. No more crusty, unsoaked beans on top!
I had all of the preparatory steps completed within about 5 minutes (really it took the longest amount of time just to wait for the coffee to grind for which I did a french press setting). Once everything was in it was a matter of waiting "12-24" hours. It just so happened that I ended up draining the toddy into the included carafe about 13 hours later. Everything looked/smelled like it had gone according to plan. I poured a measure of it over some ice and gave it a taste, and it was good! Of course YMMV depending on where you get your coffee and how you grind it.
I will say I found the beginning recommended ratio of 1 part cold brew concentrate to 3 parts water/milk/soy to be a bit weak, but then I usually prefer my coffee a tad stronger. I think my next cup will be 1 part cold brew to 2 parts whatever else. All that being said, that's purely a matter of taste/perspective! Definitely glad I finally broke down and got one of these, I've been wanting one for years!
Here are a few things to be aware of:
1) This comes with 2 filters, which say they are only good for about 10 uses so you're going to need more filters.
2) The filters that came with mine were almost just barely too large, and thus it was a bit difficult to get a filter in place without it bunching up on one side or wrinkling, but overall this was a minor difficulty.
3) The bottom of the upper reservoir plugs up with a little rubber cork, so when you are ready to drain the brew, you have to quickly pull the cork out while holding the upper reservoir up above the carafe, and simultaneously try to get out of the way of the stream so it doesn't splash off your hand or miss the carafe opening. It's was easier to do than I expected, but it'd be great if there were a simple lever or mechanism that just lowered the plug out of the way without having to move the upper pot.
4) As the instructions say, DON'T stir the grounds up, it will clog the filter, but if you use a good burr mill grinder this is far less of an issue to worry about.
With proper usage, this cold brew system makes great coffee.
Bonus round: I purchased extra decanter lids and bored holes in the top and side. I placed a rubber ring on the top and a narrow 1/4" tube in the side connected to a vacuum pump. I pull the stopper out of the brewing container and place the container on the the decanter lid rubber ring and switch the pump on. The dripping that might normally take an hour or two now only takes about 5 minutes. Great stuff.
