A visual guide to the siphon

Step 1:

Soak the fabric filter in warm water for about 5 minutes.

Step 2:

Drop the fabric filter in the top glass component, pull the beaded metal cord down and hook it on the bottom of the Siphon.

Step 3:

Pour 380ml (3 cup) or 580ml (5 cup) of water 30 seconds off the boil into the bottom glass component.

Step 4:

Place the burner underneath the glass component. Set the flame on high.

Carefully insert the top component inside the bottom glass at an angle – do not seal.

Step 5:

Just before the water in the lower chamber reaches a boil, carefully secure the top component, ensuring a good seal with the rubber ring, without pressing too hard.

Step 6:

Observe the water moving from bottom into the top vessel.

Once in top chamber, add coffee to the top and start your timer.

Step 7:

Use the included paddle to gently stir the coffee into the water every 10 seconds to ensure even extraction (3-5 times).

After 15 seconds, reduce heat to 60%. Allow the coffee to brew for 50 seconds before turning off the heat.


Step 8:

Take the Siphon away from all heat and stir around the edges of the chamber 6 times.

The change in temperature of the bottom chamber creates a vacuum and pulls the coffee down through the filter.

Allow a couple of minutes for the brew to cool.


Pour, drink and enjoy
