Getting Started

Step 1

Measure 30 grams of freshly roasted coffee beans.

Grind coffee to the Medium

Fill coffee  into the infusion chamber


Step 2

Drop the cloth filter into the top infusion chamber with the chain hanging down into the siphon tube. Pull the chain down and hook it to the bottom of the siphon tube.


Step 3

Fill the lower carafe chamber to the 5 mark with hot water (closer to boiling shortens wait time).


Step 4

Ignite your heat source and place directly beneath the lower carafe chamber. It should take about 4 minutes or so to boil.


Step 5

Once the water reaches boiling, it is siphoned through the glass tube, past the filter and into the top infusion chamber. Agitate the coffee with a back and forth motion to fully saturate the grounds.


Step 6

After about 2 minutes, agitate the coffee once again, then extinguish the heat source


Step 7

Once the carafe chamber starts to cool, the coffee is siphoned back down into it

Gently rock the top infusion chamber back and forth until it can easily be removed (placing it in its convertible lid/stand) and serve the coffee directly from the lower carafe chamber as a decanter.

Relax and enjoy your siphon coffee.
