USING THE SIPHON COFFEE BREWER
HOW SIPHON COFFEE IS DIFFERENT
Siphon coffee brewing, also known as
"vacuum" coffee brewing, uses vapour
pressure to push hot water from the carafe
into an upper brewing chamber. Freshly
brewed coffee then pours back down into
the carafe when brewing is complete.
Siphon coffee brewing fully and evenly
saturates the coffee grounds with hot
water, bringing out the bright, intense
flavours from your favourite ground coffee.
The coffee's aroma stays trapped inside
the coffee Brewer rather than escaping
into the air, resulting in clean, crisp, and
vibrant tasting coffee that drip coffee
Brewers can't produce.
Traditional siphon coffee brewing
Siphon coffee brewing is a full-immersion
craft brewing method done by hand,
and is traditionally a complex, difficult
process requiring constant attention,
precise timing, and frequent temperature
adjustments. Traditional siphon Brewers
often require a burner or an open flame.
Because of this complexity and
inconvenience, coffee lovers often
compromise and settle for the usual
drip coffee Brewer instead.

COFFEE DOSAGE GUIDE

For best results, use a kitchen scale and the chart below when filling the brew unit with
coffee grounds. As a baseline, use coffee ground medium-coarse (see picture to the left).
