The Syphon Brew

 

The Syphon is probably the most exciting way to brew coffee.

A syphon brewer has basically four parts; top and bottom chambers, a filter and a heat source.

Pre-filtered, clean water is added to the bottom chamber and heated.

When the water boils, steam escapes, creating a vacuum such that water travels up to the top chamber naturally.

Ground coffee beans are then tipped into the top chamber to brew.

Once the brewing is done, the heat source is turned off, allowing the air in the bottom chamber to cool.

This creates another vacuum which lets the coffee flow back down to the bottom chamber.

The coffee is ready to be served.
