Talkies in Ohio City has been brewing the best toddy for years. For the uninitiated: To make a toddy, you must cold-brew coarsely ground coffee beans for at least 24 hours. The cold-brewing process prevents oil from seeping into the coffee, so the product is 60 percent less acidic than traditional hot brewed coffee. A toddy is typically served over ice, but if preferred, it can be heated. While some people will add cream and/or sugar, toddy has a smooth and mild flavor that can be enjoyed black.
