Weekender Blend

Weekender Blend

“Weekender Blend makes good company. It’s just as comfortable in a warm mug or on your next adventure”

This spirit is what we shoot for every time we roast this time tested blend of Certified Organic Coffee!

Toddy Cold Brew

Cold brew is speculatively one of the oldest methods of coffee brewing because unheated water is far easier to come by than hot water in the coffee growing regions of the world. It can be brewed like sun tea, gently warmed by daylight. Or it can be done under modern refrigeration.

We chose the Toddy Cold Brew system because of the quality of its brew and the consistency in which it produces it. Another nice feature is they make commercial sizes up to 5 gallons. This allows a coffee producer like us to offer a smaller version of the same brewer that we use to produce our cold brew.

Cold Brew vs. Iced Coffee

Iced coffee when done well is amazing. We use what is now referred to as Japanese Style iced coffee. Even though we were doing it way before we were aware of the tag, the name does help differentiate the process more than just calling it iced coffee.

Similar to a Chef putting steamed green beans in an ice bath immediately after cooking; in this method coffee is brewed at double strength over its own weight in ice. This stops the brewing process cold…pun intended.

The benefit of this method is it retains all the flavor of fresh hot brewed coffee just served very cold.

Cold brew never gets hot enough to extract all the flavor compounds and acidity of the hot brew resulting in a sweeter slightly flatter cup of iced coffee. Depending on the way the coffee being used was roasted has a major factor in determining which method of coffee will be more to your liking. The return of lighter roasts coincides with the popularity of cold brew as a brew method.

My recommendation; if you like dark roasts try brewing traditional Japanese Iced Coffee. This will accentuate the little acidity left in the coffee from the longer roast process. For light roasts cold brew will soften the brightness of the acidity in those beans.

A little bit from the Toddy manufacturers:

“For nearly 50 years, Toddy has delighted baristas, food critics, and regular folks alike for its smooth, delicious flavor. By extracting the bitter acids and oils that other brewing methods leave behind, the Toddy Cold Brew System produces a smooth, low acid concentrate ideal for hot or iced coffee or tea.”

The French Press

The Ritual:

Gently preheating with a splash of hot water, coarsely fresh ground coffee, the spiraling swirl from the water kettle, coffee bloom, patience..patience…, separating the grounds from the brew with the press of the plunger. If this is not a tradition in your residence it should be.

A French press produces a cup that is possibly the richest available and not just in description. You can actually see the oils reflecting in the light. The process itself preserves this coffee characteristic. Without a paper filter to absorb the oil and a longer extraction time they have the opportunity to rise to the top.

I start each day with the ritual described above and wouldn’t have it any other way. The French press adds a sense of elegance and intimacy while at the same time possessing a grounding functionality.

Patented in 1929 the French press has gone through many upgrades over the years. My personal favorite is the Bodum Chambord. It’s affordable, sturdily made and quite good looking. All replacement parts are readily available from the manufacturer; screens, extra carafes, plunger parts etc.

Although it can be used to brew tea, I prefer to use it just for coffee.

I hope this helps you,

3 Essential Styles of Coffee Drippers

The V style coffee pour over has 3 main styles. The large single brew funnel, the smaller holed drippers and the immersion style drippers. Here are the differences:

The Funnel V Style Pour Over

This brewer gives the user the most control over the brew because almost as soon as you pour the water in it flows through the ground coffee and out the bottom. The downside of this style of dripper is it requires the user to maintain the flow of water throughout the process.

Leading Model Example: Hario V60

V Shaped Dripper

The main difference between this brewer and the funnel pour over is the hole size. The exit holes for this brewer range in number between one and several. The thing to keep in mind is the hole size regulates the flow rate of the brewed coffee limiting your control on the extraction time.

Leading Model Example: BEEHOUSE Dripper

Immersion Dripper

This method of brewing is a hybrid between the Funnel V above and a French Press. The immersion dripper typically has a mechanism to “plug” the bottom so when you add your hot water all the coffee is in contact with it. It produces an equally clean cup of coffee without the need to maintain the flow of water for the length of the extraction. Once your water is added, a timer is set. Upon completion the stopper is opened releasing the full amount of coffee into your cup. This is a very convenient functional brew method.

Our Favorite Model: Bonavita

Many new styles are emerging on the market almost daily. Most of them are in the multi-hole V Shaped dripper style. Be aware of the quality of workmanship on some of the cheaper drippers as they can have an adverse effect on the brew quality.

I hope this helps you,
