  • Coffee Syphon Maker

    I'm getting into the habit of making a good siphon/syphon brew with my Cona 'science' tubes and all I can say is that it's a learning curve and getting it to the right strength and temperature is an art but an interesting method of brewing. Have you tried it [you]?
    What Syphon equipment do you have?

      Is there a difference in the cup when you compare it to filter coffee?

      I have to agree with you and any newbies to syphon coffee brewing, but with a bit of skill you can achieve around a 94c water temperature with a bit of stirring. I've moved on to the Behmor Brazen Plus.

      useful info here thanks guys

      Saw the Diguo TCA-3C electric syphon with temperature control............looks functional enough but a little wary of the glass handle though.

      Best to also get the Diguo Syphon Permanent metal filter which produces a clean brew with no fine sludge/sediment at the bottom of the chamber - fits most syphon brands such as Hario, Yama, and Diguo.

      So yes, I have tried siphon extraction and like it very much.
      I read this reference:
      Vacuum Coffee Pots: Main Page
      and found a cory rubberless on the auction site. It's the DNU/DNL set like this one:
      It works fantastic with the glass rod.
      Totally worth the time to learn how to use it.

      Sweet Maria's tip sheet is helpful, thanks for that link.
      regarding the tip -

      ● Make sure the outside of the bowl is dry or it can crack when you turn on the flame.

      I agree completely. I didn't once and shattered a perfectly nice glass base. Live and learn.
      But totally worth the effort to learn this style of extraction.
