The Vacuum / Syphon Method

$229.00

This method is a real ritual and treat. This coffee maker is made of glass which allows you to physically see the whole brewing process from the initial moistening of the coffee grains to the final extraction. A vacuum siphon coffee maker essentially brews coffee using vapor pressure to force boiling water upwards (from the bottom chamber to the top) to mix with the coffee grounds that sit in the upper chamber. It’s a full impression coffee brewer that yields a full-bodied cup of clean coffee.

This method is a real ritual and treat. This coffee maker is made of glass which allows you to physically see the whole brewing process from the initial moistening of the coffee grains to the final extraction. The liquor produced is quite unique and flavoursome. It is like the plunger but without the sediment and has a pure clean delicate flavour allowing you to taste all the characteristics within the blend. Water is heated in the lower glass pot and rises through the neck of the top glass funnel moistening the coffee grains starting the extraction. As the water travels into the top pot, a vacuum is formed in the lower pot, the pot is then removed and placed on a cool surface and the final extraction occurs when the brewed coffee is drawn through a filter siting in the funnel of the top pot. The coffee grains remain in the top pot and the fresh brewed coffee sits in the bottom pot. The pots are separated and the coffee is ready to serve.

The Vacuum Pot consists of basically 3 parts:

  1. The top pot (rounded funnel shape), where the coffee grains are placed.
  2. The bottom pot where the cold water is poured into.
  3. The filter.

Brewing method:

  •   Preheat cups
  •   Fill bottom pot with fresh cold water 30mm from rim.
  •   Place top pot into bottom pot ensuring a good seal is formed between the neck of the bottom pot and the siphon of the top pot.
  •   Place filter in top pot.
  •   Add desired amount of ground coffee into top pot, 1 dessertspoonful per cup, coarse ground coffee is more suitable.
  •   Place on stove with medium heat ensuring handles face away from heat.
  •   As water temperature increases it expands and starts rising into the top pot moistening the coffee grains.
  •   Gently stir coffee grains ensuring they all become totally saturated.
  •   Once nearly all the water has reached the top pot hot air bubbles will start bubbling through the brewed coffee.
  •   Remove siphon and place on a cool surface. A vacuum has developed in the bottom pot as the water was removed by heat transfer. This vacuum pressure will now pull the brewed coffee down through the filter into the bottom pot and finalising the extraction.
  •   Remove top pot and serve.

Cleaning: Remove filter and wash all parts ensuring all coffee oils are removed.
