The syphon consists of a metal stand that holds a glass bulb, a glass chamber with a tube on the bottom that fits into the bulb and a cloth filter. There are several ways to use this lovely Japanese creation but whichever way you choose, the process works in the same way.
Water being heated to boiling point in the bottom bulb increases the vapor pressure so that it is forced into the top vessel. Here it mixes with the coffee until the heat is removed and the pressure normalises letting the coffee flow back into the bottom bulb, via a cloth filter.
This produces an exceptionally clean and flavorful beverage and, when used properly, it's hard to beat.
