How to Brew: The Perfect Siphon Coffee

June 11, 2019

 Welcome back to our series, “How to Brew”!

A quick history lesson before we get started, the Siphon coffee method was invented in the 1840s by a French housewife and her husband, a Scottish engineer. While it has been refined several times, this method produces a delicate and delicious cup of coffee and without a doubt, is probably one of the coolest ways to impress friends & family.

Step 1

First thing’s first, knowing the parts of your Siphon. You have your upper chamber, the lower chamber and your filter. Place your filter into the upper chamber to get started.

Step 2

Pour your water into the lower chamber. Remember 2 tablespoons per 1 cup.

Step 3

Turn on the gas and let your water come to a boil.

Step 4

Grab your upper chamber and put it loosely into place.

Step 5

Add in your coffee – medium grind. We recommend our Paper & Slippers

Step 6

Take a wooden spoon and stir your coffee.

Step 7

Place the cap one and wait for about a minute and a half

Step 8

Turn off your heat, give it one final stir and wait as it drops into the lower chamber.

Step 9

Once complete, remove the upper chamber and use the lower chamber to pour your coffee

 

That’s it! Sip. Smile. Enjoy.

See you next time on “How to Brew”!
