I have always thought that my favorite non-espresso brewing method was a toss-up between the French Press and the AeroPress…until now! A couple of weeks ago I ordered a Bodum Santos stove-top coffee maker to see what all of the hub-bub is about with this siphon pot coffee brewing, and I’m glad that I did!
This video is an easy to follow demonstration on how to use a vacuum coffee pot brewer. There are some variations of the siphon pot coffee makers, different heating methods, various filter types, and pots made from alternative materials. I like this method for a few reasons…
- The coffee is always brewed at the ideal temperature (dummy proof)
- There is little effect on the flavor of the coffee. With other methods the filter will remove desirable flavors!
- You can use a finer grind than French Press, this produces a fuller flavored cup 🙂
I highly recommend that you purchase a siphon pot and experience this great way of making coffee for yourself! Try it out and experiment with different amounts of coffee, varying fineness of coffee grinds, and length of steeping time. All of these things have an effect on the final flavor of your cup, and there is no right or wrong answers, take the time to discover what works for you!
