Subject: condensed coffee?
Have you ever accidentally left your drip coffee-maker on for a few
hours, causing around 3/4 of the water to evaporate from the carafe?
Is there a special name for the drink that results? I may be weird,
but I think it tastes really good.

I haven't tried Toddy specifically, but cold brewed coffee tastes odd
too me, kind of like weird tea. I used light roast.

I agree it certainly has a unique taste :-)) Have you
just tried making stronger coffee ?

Maybe you and others did not understand. I'm talking about essentially
regular drip coffee, but with 70% less water. What you are suggesting
is the opposite, for the most part.

The Aeropress can make a concentrate and from there you could heat the
concentrate some more to boil off more H2O until you get the desired
consistency.

Coffee concentrates are widely available, especially for institutional
use, and some are quite good. What you are talking about is cooking
coffee many times longer than the optimal duration, which would create
an undrinkable brew.

What Mike G. said!

You might also enjoy the results of running a second pot of water
through the once used grounds.

Rot gut I believe is the name for it. I have heard stories of the
condensed mixture actually dissolving the lower digestive track in
some individuals. This happens quite often in restaurants, who have
flaky waitresses and waiters who could give a shoit about the coffee
station, and who serve such vile swill to their customers. Next to
choking, it is the leading cause of death in restaurants.

But heck, if you like it go for it with gusto.

mmm.. d'you feel a little lightheaded afterwards; aware
of increased activity involving black suits and large,
anonymous vehicles? A few feet of copper tubing and some
cooling water might also enhance the effect of your excess
evaporant...

Mankind has always experimented with concentrated liqueurs
and as your local customs agent will tell you, coffee is no
exception.

Enjoy! ..(just don't pass the secret onward to your 'Feds').
