Hello, I'm brand new to this forum. I want to find out if someone can enlighten me on why coffee is less bitter and actually smoother to drink the day after it's brewed. The longer it sits in the airpot, the easier it is to drink. I can actually taste some chocolate overtones from it. Are these characteristics of stale coffee? If so, it works for me.

thanks.

I find tody brew great for cold ices or blended drinks. Coffee will tend to get bitter and loose some of boldness and flavor just after a few hours of sitting I find - sometimes you can go longer like 3 hours but not much more than there before dumping and brewing a fresh pot of coffee. :) :)

Toddy's exclusive cold-water brewing process extracts the natural, delicious flavors of coffee and tea yet leaves behind undesirable bitter acids and oils. The result: A bold, super-smooth taste that's easier on the stomach. Toddy can be made one cup at a time - served steaming hot or iced cold, and at the strength you prefer.

Another way of describing Toddy:
"(The Toddy) is the ultimate coffee maker." In 1964, as a chemical engineering graduate of Cornell, Todd Simpson developed and patented a cold brew system that, using regular Arabica 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. According to The Saturday Evening Post, "Cold brewed coffee is a welcome alternative for the millions of coffee lovers who are acid sensitive or suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease." The Toddy brewer produces a low acid, coffee concentrate. Just add water for a distinctively bold, super smooth taste that has delighted connoisseurs for some 40 years. And, refrigerated, there's no waste Toddy can be made one cup at a time.

3) Froth 6 ounces of 2% milk (160º) and quickly spoon foam on top of espresso, add remaining steamed milk for a "wet" cappuccino

Rule of Thumb

Rule of Thumb ------ Put one teaspoon of sugar in the coffee for every two hours since it was brewed and you will not taste the bitterness. it works every time.
