The coffee syphon is one of the newest old-school-coffee trends. Of all the coffee brewing methods to be popularized recently, the most unusual and the most special to look at, is the syphon. Made famous in Japan, it adds an element of magic to a coffee shop experience. Seated at a bar while your wait for your coffee, you watch in amazement as the water quickly heats up and bubbles up from the lower glass chamber to the upper chamber and then down again with coffee in tow (see this video). Because of the filter system it employs, the coffee is light and smooth but fully extracted in what they call “full immersion”. And because the extraction and filter is significantly different to other manual brew methods, it has less body and seems very clean compared to a French press. So if you’re entertaining and want a party trick after dinner and at the same time an awesome tasting coffee, there is nothing like the syphon.
