Syphon

A syphon, or vac pot, works a little like the Moka pot using the principle of water vapour expansion to move water up into a brewing chamber. The syphon produces a cleaner cup as the brewed coffee is filtered after a short infusion period. Made up of four parts, there is a bulb shaped glass vessel where the initial brewing water is heated up; a glass flask used as the brewing chamber, a filter disk which will hold paper or cloth filters and a rubber seal which is required for creating the seal between the top flask and the bottom chamber.

Barista-Tips

Experiment with finer grinds to adjust the strength or body of the brewed coffee but keep in mind that the coffee should finish drawing down in less than 1-2 minutes.
If using a cloth filter make sure that you keep in good condition by rinsing and store immersed in water in the fridge. This will help to ensure a clean tasting cup.
