now in stereo
Run a string from the bottom of the cup to another 3 feet away, tension it, and you've got stereo. 4 more cups, and it's surround sound. Add a Bearvault 400 and it's 5.1...

Laural describes a (somewhat wasteful) but really cool way to make excellent coffee, the cold-brewed "toddy" style. Because of the very low tannins in the resulting concentrate, it's...
