Coffee Siphon


I am far from a coffee connoisseur, but I do enjoy my morning coffee.  When I worked at my previous job, I always got coffee from the local coffee shop. 

However, since I started working more from home, I realized the difference between coffee shop and drip coffee and thought there had to be a better way to brew at home. 

That’s when I discovered the siphon.  Once you use this a couple of times, you will brew a better cup of coffee faster than a standard drip coffee!

In simple terms, the siphon works by heating the bottom and forcing the water to rise.  The water goes through the filter and mixes in the top section with all the coffee grinds. 

Once you turn off the heat, the ‘coffee’ will fall through the filter and back into the pot.  You now have a pot of coffee and it is that simple!

If you are interested in this setup,  I highly recommend getting the metal filter. The metal filter is reusable and lasts a very long time opposed to the standard cloth ones that you would have to throw away after a certain amount of uses.  

Also, I usually make 5 cups of coffee, so that is how the directions will be laid out. If you would like to make more, I recommend the general rule of 1 Tbsp coffee beans for 1 cup of coffee, so 8 cups of coffee would call for 8 Tbsp coffee beans.

On a note, the siphon I use does have markers on the pot, from 5-8. I believe these markers indicate cups of coffee which is not the same as cups of measurement. When I tested this and put water up to the 5 marker, it only produced 3 cups in my measuring cup.

Now, let’s get started!

Servings 5

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups of Water
  • 5 tbsp Whole Coffee Beans (or pre-ground if you prefer)

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Add the water into the bottom portion of the siphon and bring to boil on high.

3) Meanwhile, take the siphon filter and place inside the top portion.

4) Grab the filter chain from the bottom and pull until the latch is secured on the external portion of the glass tube and set in the stand.

5) Place coffee beans into the coffee grinder and grind to medium (about 5-7 seconds on our grinder).

6) Place coffee grinds inside siphon top and set in the stand.

7) Once water is boiling, firmly press top portion into the bottom siphon. If done correctly, the pressure from the heat will cause the water to rise into the top portion (I know, our pot has seen better days)!

8) Let it boil for 45 seconds and then turn off heat.

9) After about 2 minutes, the coffee will fall back down into the bottom portion of the siphon.

10) Carefully remove the top portion (it will be hot!) and place into holding stand.

11) Pour coffee into a cup and enjoy!
