It’s really good to keep supporting businesses during this time. And. Has anyone else started doing things “in house” that they used to farm out to another person or business? Started your own kombucha? Making your own bread? Sewing your own pants?
I personally love having iced coffee or a nitro as my late morning bevvie. And pre-quarantine I bought whatever brand was at the grocery store and brought it home. But those can be pricey comparative to making it yourself. The price was a trade-off I accepted previously because I was “too busy” to figure out making my own cold brew or nitro. But now? All of a sudden I have time and thought, ‘why not?’
So I’m diving in and purchasing a Toddy cold brew system. You can make 14 cups of cold brew coffee in one go. Which will either last me 2 weeks…or I will set my hair on fire with excessive consumption on week 1.
I would love to hear what things you’ve brought “in house” since quarantine started.
And, since I’m betting you did some research, who are the experts you found online who teach that skill, what books or blogs did you find to help you learn, or what tools or systems did you purchase to be able to do this skill at home?
For me, it’s the Toddy system and cold brew. I will report back once I’ve made my first batch.
