Servings 1


  • Siphon coffee maker
  • Coffee Grinder
  • Spoon
  • Kettle
  • Timer
  • Scale


  • 20 grams Freshly ground coffee medium grind size
  • 320 grams filtered water


  • Boil the water in a kettle.
  • Attach the filter to the top chamber, make sure the filter is firmly attached.
  • Measure 320 grams of boiling water and fill it to the lower chamber.
  • Place a heat source below the lower chamber. Insert the glass tube on the top container into the hole in the bottom container. Let it sit to the side and leave a gap.
  • Grind coffee beans into meidum grind size.
  • When you see lots of bubbles, the water is boiled. Attach the top part securely and ensure there is a good seal between the two units.
  • Let the water rise to the top container via the tube.
  • Pour the ground coffee into the water. Start the timer. Stir it with a spoon to get everything saturated.
  • At 90 seconds, remove the heat source. Let the coffee filter down to the lower container.
  • Take out the top container, hold the handle of the siphon coffee maker and serve.


  • It takes too long to heat the water in the siphon brewer with an alcohol burner. Boil the water in a kettle first can speed up the process. 
  • When you attach the filter, make sure you attach the hook to the end of the tube. 
  • Medium grind for pour-over is a good start for siphon coffee. You can grind a bit finer or coarser accordingly. 
  • If you are using a coarser grind or more coffee, you can adjust the brewing time between 90 and 120 seconds. 
  • When you take out the top container after brewing, be careful and don't burn your hands. It's extremely hot.
