The syphon (or siphon, if you're so inclined) is the epitome of coffee theatre, and can produce stunning coffee. Whether you want to impress your friends or just make a delicious cup of coffee in a stylish and elaborate way, this is the piece of brewing kit for you.
The syphon consists of a metal stand that holds a glass bulb, a glass chamber with a tube on the bottom that fits into the bulb and a cloth filter. There are several ways to use this lovely Japanese creation but whichever way you choose, the process works in the same way.
This produces an exceptionally clean and flavourful beverage and, when used properly, it's hard to beat.
