The syphon pot refers to a type of vacuum brewing method, which way a long- established way to prepare coffee. This method is one of the more complicated as vacuum pots can be more fragile and difficult to use than a v60 or clever dripper. However, when done right, the resulting cup is worth the extra effort. Depending on the pot being used, the coffee is ground between a fine to coarse grind. One heaping tablespoon of coffee is measured out for each 5 oz. of water. The water (sometimes preheated to decrease boiling time) is poured into the globe and heated over a burner. Once the water nears boiling temperature, the top globe, with coffee in it, is attached to the bottom portion. After enough water has reached the top globe and saturated the coffee, the liquid is quickly stirred and the lid placed on top. Once almost all the water has left the bottom globe, the brewer is removed from the burner. As the coffee is extracted through the filter and into the bottom globe, the brewer cools. The top globe is removed after all the water has poured through, and the coffee is ready to be served.
