Enjoying real coffee is one life's true pleasures. The trouble is that having the tools on hand to prepare it at home and may also require barista skills. Shoppy Syphon Coffee Maker may look intimidating at first blush. But this 2-chambered coffee maker is no more difficult to use than a Bunsen burner. Heating the bottom bulb forces hot water up into the top chamber through a central coffee filter, where freshly-ground coffee is added.
After a short brew period (around a minute) the heater is removed from the bottom bulb, forcing brewed coffee back down through the filter while keeping used coffee grounds in the top. This clever process produces hot, smooth coffee with a flavor similar to that from a French press, but with a bold, even taste that is consistent from the first sip to the last-all without any sludge. Since the syphon requires no electricity it can be used anywhere an open flame is appropriate, from the home kitchen to the RV to the campsite. This vacuum coffee maker includes an alcohol burner heat source.1 Week Local seller warranty
