4 Best Coffees For Toddy Cold Brew

Nothing beats a cold brew on a hot afternoon, but knowing which coffee to choose can make or break your java experience. Read on to learn the best coffees for Toddy cold brew.

Lots of coffee cups - Best coffees for toddy cold brew
Toddy gives you a refreshing java to keep you going the whole day

I have an affinity for any cold beverage. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a warm environment where the sun’s up most of the day, and the heat can sometimes be unbearable.

So, cold brew is something that I’ve naturally come to love. But as with any other cup of Joe, it can sometimes become too bitter or too acidic, which can ruin your cold brew experience.

That’s why Toddy is heaven-sent. Its unique cold water filtration removes a considerable amount of the coffee’s bitterness and extracts more flavor from the grounds. Pair that with a perfect coffee bean, and you have a refreshing java to keep you going the whole day. 

What To Look For In The Best Coffee For Toddy Cold Brew

Like all kinds of coffee beverages, it’s all about your preference. 


You can buy whole beans, but many brands offer coarse ground beans – the kind all cold brew lovers recommend. These are larger, which allows the water to extract more from the coffee particles, giving your cold brew a stronger and bolder flavor.

Opt for medium to dark roasts for a richer and smoother taste

I strongly recommend choosing the medium to dark roasts for a richer and smoother taste. Alternatively, if you still prefer light roasts, I suggest steeping it in your Toddy for a couple more hours to extract more caffeine and flavor.

If you have extra coffee beans lying around the house, try to roast it yourself by following our guide to roasting coffee beans!

You should consider three things when picking the best coffee beans for Toddy cold brew:
