I’ve always heard that a Siphon brew is much better than a traditional cup of joe, but I haven’t had the opportunity to try it for myself. What I do know, however, is that it certainly looks a lot more fun to make than a traditional cup of coffee. I mean, shoot, making a cup of coffee makes you look like a mad scientist. It’s that intense!

From what I understand, ground coffee is put into the top chamber and water is filled in the bottom chamber. When heated, the water boils to the top and then the chamber is taken off of the hot plate and cooled down rapidly. The cooling creates some sort of vaccuum and the water drains back down into the bottom chamber filtering out all of the coffee grinds and leaving nothing but the purest of coffee.

Sounds pretty delicious. Where can I get a cup in New York City without breaking the bank?
