Toddy Commercial Brew System
Come summer, nothing beats iced coffee - a truth so well known that for cafes it can be impossible to keep up with demand. The simple and economical Toddy Commercial is here to make sure you never run out, brewing 9+L of smooth and flavourful cold brew per batch.
One of the biggest names in cold brewing, Toddy have made non-electric commercial and home brewing gear for over 50 years. Brewed cold from start to finish, Toddy coffee is characteristically low in acidity and high in flavour, with lovely rich and smooth coffee (or tea) that's perfect on ice or diluted with a splash of cold milk.
The Toddy Commercial System produces 8L of delicious concentrated cold brew at a time - enough to keep even a busy cafe satisfied through Australia's hot and thirsty summer.
To brew, just place your coffee (2kg [or 210g per litre of water] filter roasted, coarsely ground) into the filter and slowly add 11.2L of cool, filtered water, making sure to saturate all of the coffee evenly. Tie the top of the Toddy paper filter, cover the brewer and let brew for 12 - 24 hours (depending on your desired brew profile.) After brewing, strain the concentrated brewed coffee and refrigerate - the Toddy should yield 8L of delicious cold brew which can then be diluted to your taste. We recommend serving it over ice with cold milk on the side.
Toddy filters are made with natural paper to absorb acids and oils and are not reusable. The Toddy Commercial System comes with 10 filters, more are available here. The Toddy strainer (a secondary filter to ensure the clean, bright texture and flavour of cold brewed coffee) is reusable for up to 50 brews and can be replaced, when necessary, here.
Due to the extended brew time necessary for a tasty cold drip, we recommend using coarsely ground and light-roasted coffee from our filter range - see what's in season here. To brew a batch of iced tea with the Toddy, simply use 1kg of loose-leaf tea and 10L of filtered water, brewed for twelve hours. The tea brew will yield 8L of cold-brewed tea concentrate which can be diluted 1:7 before serving. You can read the official brewing instructions over at Toddy's website, here or watch an introductory video online.
The Commercial System comes with the container, lid, spout and reusable strainer as well as 10 paper filters to get you started. Replacement strainers, filters and other parts are also available. The system measures 15.5" high by 12" wide.
