Syphon Coffe

A syphon coffee maker brews coffee using two chambers where vapor pressure and vacuum produce coffee. It was invented by Loeff of Berlin in the 1830s, and after that these devices have been used for more than a century in many parts of the world. Design and composition of the vacuum coffee maker varies.

Syphon Coffee produces a bright, sweet, clarified coffee, which is not only involves fully immersion, but also (low) pressure extraction. The process in making Syphon Coffee is somewhat delicate, but produces a cup of coffee that is unique in its richness and clear flavors and can have an oily body, but almost never has any silt. These characteristics are why this method is so famous in many coffee lover. However, the main disadvantage is the difficulty in the process. 

Anyway, for me coffee is not just ‘coffee’ but the art of making it that make it special.

====================================

Dalam bahasa Indonesia:

Alat pembuat kopi ala sifon adalah cara membuat kopi dengan dua wadah, dimana tekanan uap dan tabung yang menghasilkan kopi. Alat tersebut ditemukan oleh Loeff of Berlin pada tahun 1830an, dan setelah itu alat ini telah digunakan dibanyak negara selama lebih dari 100 tahun. Alat ini mempunyai desain dan komposisi yang bervariasi.

Kopi sifon menghasilkan kopi yang terang, manis dan bening, yang mana tidak hanya kopi tercelup secara sempurna, tetapi juga tekanan penyaringan yang rendah. Proses dalam pembuatan kopi sifon bisa dikatakan agak sulit, tetapi menghasilkan secangkir kopi yang unik dengan cita kaya rasa khas kopi tersebut dan hampir tanpa ampas. Karakteristik inilah yang banyak digemari oleh para pecinta kopi. Walaupun kekurangan dalam pembuatan teknik sifon ini adalah di kerumitan dalam proses pembuatan kopinya.

Bagi saya, kopi tidak hanya sekedar ‘kopi’ tetapi seni dalam pembuatan kopi itu sendirilah yang membuatnya istimewa.

  2. I find it amazing and interesting to read about different people’s passion. Thanks for the interesting info. I used to drink coffee but only instant, as I found real coffee much too strong, which must seem like an abomination to a connoisseur such as yourself! πŸ˜ƒ

  3. Coffee prepared in syphon coffeemaker is very fascinating to watch. Trung Nguyen in Vietnam uses this type of coffeemaker in some of their coffee preparation. I think Cafe Havana as well except that it is not prepared on your own table.

      1. Well, if you like cafes then it would be Trung Nguyen and Highlands. But in Vietnam, you could have a coffee anywhere and get a great-tasting cup. That would be always one of my most favorite places on earth.
