Brewing Coffee with Siphon Coffee Machine


The siphon brewer is probably the most exciting way to brew coffee. It includes siphon brewing, fire or halogen beam heater, vacuum effect and fancy looking lab equipment, all of which are very exciting. Invented in Germany in the early 19th century, the siphon is a full immersion coffee maker that led to full-bodied and full-flavored cups. Siphoning coffee can be a bit of a hassle, so let's take a look at the steps for siphoning coffee.

A siphon coffee machine basically has four parts; upper and lower chambers, a filter and a heat source. Brewing water is added to the lower chamber and heated by the heat source (fire or halogen beam heater). When the water is hot enough, gases start escaping from it and vacuum is created which will then carry the brewing water to the upper chamber. The upper chamber is used to brew the coffee. After brewing, the heat source is turned off, which will cool the air in the lower chamber. This creates another vacuum that will pull the coffee into the lower chamber and the coffee is ready to serve!


Although making coffee seems really complicated and difficult, it is actually not that difficult. You just need to get used to it, and it's a good idea to play with the siphon a few times before you start brewing coffee.


Siphon brewing steps


1. INSTALL THE FILTER

The filter has a chain that you have to pull down and clip it to the bottom of the funnel.

2. ADD WATER

If you want things to go a little faster, use pre-boiled water. In this recipe we will use 300 grams of water, measure it with a balance. After adding the water, dry the outside of the lower chamber so that the sphere does not crack when heat is applied.

3. HEAT THE WATER

Put the lower chamber above the heat source (butane burner or halogen beam). Turn the heat source to maximum and place the funnel loosely in the lower chamber so that it is not completely inserted.

4. MEASURE AND GRIND YOUR COFFEE

It may take a while to boil the water, so this is a good time to measure and grind your coffee. We use 20 grams of coffee in this recipe. Grind fairly coarse

5. ATTACH THE TOP

When the water starts to boil, insert the funnel into the lower bowl and make sure they come together "tightly".

6. ADD YOUR COFFEE TO THE WATER

It may take a few seconds for the water to fill the top (there is always some water left in the lower chamber). After the top is filled, add the coffee to the water. Mix well with a spoon or bamboo stick and start your timer.

7. BREW

We're going to brew for 1:30 minutes. After 45 seconds, mix the coffee well for the 2nd time.

8. TURN OFF THE HEAT

Just before 1:30, turn off the heat.

9. FALL

When you turn off the heat, the coffee will be drawn back to the bottom. The decline should last close to 1:00 min. So the total brewing time will be 2:30 minutes.

10. ENJOY!

You can insert the funnel into the black base and remove the sphere from the top of the heat source. Be careful as the parts can and will be hot. Serve world-class coffee with a smile and enjoy!
