Siphon or Vacuum brewing is undergoing a renaissance. Early last century- long before the advent of modern espresso machines- vacuum brewing was very common worldwide. Today it is has remained popular in SE Asia- in Taiwan, Korea, Thailand and Japan you will find vacuum coffee bars with rows of vacuum machines in constant service. Try a cup of siphon coffee and you will immediately see why: for coffee lovers and connoisseurs the siphon brewer offers a cup of unparalleled flavor. A clean crisp, sediment free brew that showcases the full range of flavors in the coffee. Crisp and clean- siphon coffee makes a refreshing change to the brute strength and concentration of espresso.

The beauty of the vacuum process is that the coffee is brewed by extended contact with water at exactly the right brewing temperature, the temperature is maintained throughout the process, and then the coffee is immediately separated from the grounds. The re-useable cotton cloth filter ensures that the resulting brew is very clear- and far superior to the muddy, under-brewed, luke warm ‘coffee’ you get from a French press. Not only does it produce perfect coffee- at the perfect temperature- vacuum brewing is a joy to watch and coffee can be brewed right at the table.

This brewer kit comes complete with a measuring spoon and a glass alcohol wick burner. It is recommended that pure denatured alcohol or methylated spirits be used in the burner. This package deal also includes a high quality Butane Burner (check my other listing for the syphon with liquid fuel burner only). The butane burner can easily be refilled with common lighter gas refill bottles. You also get 5 extra cloth filters (these can be washed and re-used many times).

With care your syphon should perform perfectly for years. The machine comes with a 12 month manufacturers warranty and spare parts are readily available from Sorrentina Coffee Online should they be required.
