Siphon Coffee maker

Siphon Coffee Maker. This type of coffee maker is also known as vacuum pot and was invented by Loeff of Berlin in the 1830’s.

Siphon brews coffee using two chambers where vapor pressure and vacuum produce clean, crisp and rich coffee. The principle of Siphon is to heat water in the lower vessel of the brewer until expansion forces the contents thru a narrow tube into an upper vessel containing coffee grounds. When the lower vessel has more or less emptied itself and enough time has elapsed, the heat is removed and the vacuum will draw the brewed coffee thru a stainer back into the lower chamber from which it can be decanted.
