Coffee Blend N°6
Royal Belgium Siphon coffee maker is an elaborate device for making coffee. It is both beautiful to look at and fun to brew a perfect cup of coffee. Even though it is not a common sight in most kitchen, the Balancing Siphon coffee maker has been around for more than 150 years. It is a great example of a device that is both aesthetically pleasing and amazingly functional.
The principle of a Siphon coffee maker is simple. It consists of two chambers placed side by side. On one side is the brewing glass jar (for ground coffee) and the other a metal canister (to boil water). Water is heated in the metal canister to boiling. The heating process creates steam pressure which forces hot water through the pipe and into the brewing glass jar where the ground coffee sits. When all the water has passed into the brewing vessel in this way, the metal chamber becomes lighter and lifts up thereby causing the burner cover to drop. This causes the fire to be extinguished. As the metal container cools, it creates a vacuum which pulls the freshly-brewed coffee back into the metal container.
The result is perfectly filtered coffee brewed at the optimum temperature of just below boiling point. The advantage of this process is that since the heat is never directly applied to the coffee, the coffee can never be burned in the brewing process, thus producing a truly smooth cup of coffee.
