Camp Grounds

While we were camping, we used the Toddy cold brew system to make coffee syrup. 

Our friend at Gussied Up got us all started on this way of making coffee. I'll show you how it's done when I brew up a batch tomorrow. Basically it is a thick dark coffee; you add water to get it to your desired strength. I think it is best iced, which is a good thing because nobody was prepared to deal with the camp stove to heat the water when we woke up.

H&M brought the coffee syrup, Sheeder Cloverleaf Dairy Milk, and a choice of caramel or hazelnut syrup. You can see from the picture I drank mine iced with very little milk.


  1. Great with a splash of Kahlua in lieu of the coffee syrup, too! But we needed some strong coffee to get the day rolling.

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I think I would literally DIE! without mine. My contribution - order Cafe Du Monde by the case from them - about $50. Works out to about $6.00 + change (imagine that money sound effect here)/can - about two bucks cheaper than street.

  3. PS. E-rock and the old Chat Noir turned us onto it.
