"K-Cup" Coffee Makers (Read 312 times)

    jpdeaux what's your setup for the cold-brew?  I tried the Toddy a few years back and didn't like it - worried about that little plug coming out in the fridge, didn't like the single-supplier filters.  I did like the coffee, though...

     

    Just a one quart jar, 6 scoops of coffee and water to fill. I use my old brewer's filter cone, but any old paper cone holder should work. Even decanting directly into a mug works in a pinch once the grounds have settled.

     

    Recipe from NYT - don't know why they recommend filtering twice. (Recipe, ha. Water+coffee.)

      I like my coffee hot, but I really need to try this.  I would think that it would not be as bitter microwaved because it is heated after the grounds have been removed.  Seems simple enough.

        I brew a coffee porter and that's how I do the coffee.  I cold steep 1/2 pound of coffee in a quart of water for 24 hours, strain, then add to the beer right after I turn the flame off.  Cold steeped coffee is no doubt less bitter than hot brewed.

         

         

        Someone else posted that you could peel the foil off, dump the grounds in the compost, then recycle the plastic.  I tried it.  It is a pain.  The grounds don't come out easy and most get rinsed down the drain.

         

        Is this true?  That the plastic is recyclable?  In that case, i might be more inclined to get a Keurig.

         

        Of course I won't, but I would still be more inclined.  :-)

         

        My regular old Mr. Coffee drip works just fine.
