Experience 'The Most Theatrical Brewing method' - The Syphon Coffee Maker. One of the most impressive ways of making coffee. It’s a science not a rocket science though! The Syphon method, also known as vacuum pot system, made its first appearance in the 1830s in Germany.
The equipment consisted of a double glass body divided by a filter. Water was placed in the lower part while the ground coffee was housed in the upper body. The operating principle is still spectacular: the heat produced by a flame placed under the syphon, creates an increase in pressure in the lower body, making hot water rise to the upper part where it is infused with ground coffee for a certain period. After turning off the flame, the coffee flows into the lower body due to the resulting depressurization, passing through the filter that holds the ground coffee in the upper part of the equipment.
