Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Coffee:

    Well, after reading you article I checked out your links and then scoured the internet for more info. You see, I love iced coffee. So, I looked around and found a 8 oz box of Gevalia coffee (dark roast) that someone gave me. I read the instructions for the Toddy system, which as it turns out, has you put 8 cups of water over 16 oz of coffee over night then filtering it. Well, I don't need to spend $30 to do that! I used a tupperware container, put my 8 oz of coffee in it and then put 4 cups of cold filtered water over it. I let it sit. About 20 hours actually. After a really messy filtering process I found myself with 8 oz of gooupy coffee grounds and a nice 3.8 cups of coffee "concentrate."

    Then the test. I mixed a small cup 1-to-1 of cold filtered water and the coffee. Smelled it. Smells good. Looked at it... nice and dark. Ok, took a sip..... .... it was good! Not bitter, extremely deep flavor! I didn't heat it, but I bet it would be excellent. I looked in the fridge - no milk - oh well. I certainly wont be dumping the rest of my creation down the drain, but I'm not sure that it's the most economical way to use a half pound of coffee.

    Phil, I did something similar to what you did, I'm glad to hear of your experience.

    I found you can't get a Toddy
    maker around here so I used a plastic pitcher with lid. The difference is I found a link which advised 1/3 cup coffee and 1 1/2 cups water. So I tripled that amount and let it sit over night. Then I used coffee filters and poured the mixture into another container. I thought it was too weak. Good, but weak. I need to increase the amount of coffee.

    You're right though, it does seem like too much coffee is used for too little result. I'll use what I made for after dinner coffee.
