Sun Coffee????????

Postby jar » Mon Oct 27, 2008 4:57 pm

I love sun tea. I guess it is a left over from childhood memories but sun tea simply seems to taste sweeter than the tea brewed quickly with boiling water.

Has anyone tried making sun coffee?

Haven't tried sun coffee, although the toddy coffee is similar. I love me some sun tea :wink:

Seems like it would over extract.

Okay, beginning the experiment.

Using a Ziplock Screw cap container with 3 cups of water and three Fratello Mocha Java pods.

Call the time 9:30am.

I will try to take pictures along the way.

Looks like it has reached some plateau, so time to give it a taste.

First taste was not bad.

Not bitter at all, but of course not hot either.

So nuked for one minute and tasted against a pod made normally.

And the result is...

It's okay, but no where near the difference found between brewed tea and sun brewed tea.

The Valley, Mission.

I also cut the test off early. Usually sun tea brews most of the day.

I will likely try it again and leave it out longer.

Hey, the temperature plunged down into the 60s last night and during the Great Blizzard of '04 we had snow. Sat on the ground almost 'till noon.

Just had the last of what I made this morning and it really is pretty good.

Perhaps the results would have been different in a mason jar. Maybe the plastic of the ziploc affected the taste.. :) It looked a tad bit weak too. Did it taste that way?

Part of what is seen is the sun actually shining through the sample.

I want to try one that is left out longer and during a later period and see what happens.

There was NO plastic taste so that worked.

Also the real surprise was that the last cup was still pretty good.

I would be nervous about sun-brewing in a plastic container even if you can't taste it.

There is that cold-brew method that was on this forum at one time -- I was tempted to look into it sometime but never did as I became a coffeemaker collector instead :roll: .

It makes that syrup 'coffee concentrate' and you use a whole lot of coffee to produce it.

I think sun-coffee would work as well as sun-tea. There is no sun where I live so I couldn't tell ya. :cry:
