Given Hario's reputation for making top quality glass & ceramic coffee equipment, it should be no surprise that their siphon offering is top notch. The Technica Tabletop Siphon uses a classic design, and is made with hardened borosilicate glass. It's the siphon of choice for many speciality coffee shops in Japan and in the US and is now available for delivery anywhere in South Africa.

About coffee siphons

It may look more like a piece of chemistry equipment than a coffee maker, but we think the siphon is actually one of the most exciting pieces of manual brewing equipment out there. Believe it or not, this style of coffee maker has been around in some form since the 1830s and has recently regained popularity in many parts of the world.

By using a combination of vapour-pressure (which pushes the water into the top chamber) and a vacuum (which draws the brewed coffee back down), the siphon is able to create a uniquely clean & clear cup of coffee without any compromise on intensity.

How does it work?

By applying heat to the bottom chamber full of water, pressure is created which pushes the hot water into the top, at an ideal temperature for brewing. The coffee is then fully immersed in the top chamber, and when you're ready, removing the heat creates a vacuum below which quickly filters the coffee through a cloth. The vacuum pressure and cloth filtration allow you to use a finer grind, while still getting the benefit of full immersion.
