My preferred brewing method can change daily depending on my mood and what coffee I have at home to brew up. I use four different methods regularly and this morning it was French press. Of the four…Continue

Ever since I got more into home brewing, I've become obsessed with all the different brewing methods. I tend to use my clever dripper, Aeropress and french press on a regular basis.

I use whatever brewer that gets the most out of the coffee I'm drinking at any given time.

Tha only brewers I'm missing are pour over, Chemex and Vacuum.

Cash, I can't wait to have the resources / $'s to purchase the unit that was used in the "Bucket List" I emailed the company in MI and found out they bought or aquired the rights to build them from the original company in the UK. They are tooling up to go into production. I told the owner I would travel to MI to pick one up as soon as I can.

Yeah I can't wait to try a cup Joe, I know a shop owner here in my town that wants to get one to use in their cafe. I just got hired as barista at a new gourmet cupcake cafe and to my surprise, the owner is whole heartedly into, custom, artisan brewing methods and isn't even going to have a big batch electric drip machine. I think our focus will be French press coffee. Very exciting.

We have a Chinese knock off. They sell for 140.00 or so via the web. I'm putting my tips away for a Gold version like Jack Nickleson carried around in a suit case. At 2225.00 I think I will have a deluxe case built from laminated coffee wood and then store it in a fire proof gun safe between special coffee shop events. If your like me and have not seen the movie "The bucket List", it's now time. Those coffee folks that swear by this brewing method say that it is natures way of a perfect immersion brew time resulting in the balance that all coffee people strive for in a superb cup of Joe.

Thanks Joe! Nice to see you here. Now you've got me real curious. I haven't tried syphon brewed coffee yet but the video I found was amazing. Beautiful. Is your syphon coffee popular? Do you tell your customers about it or let them discover it? Do your customers get excited and bring people in to see it?
We have one shop, "One Cup Cafe" here in Eugene, Oregon that has a metal, electric model. Still intend to get over there to try it out.
Another shop owner here in town just sent a message to me saying that she just picked up an electric model also.
I'd love to see a photo or video of your syphon in action at your shop! Thanks again Joe, I'll check out the link you posted. Have a great week. c[_]

Thanks for kicking off a topic. This discussion/group was going to die on the vine without some seeds and water.

I think I'll stick with the table top gold Royal Deluxe is 23.5K Gold Super-Plated balancing syphon. Only $2,225.00 on sale. Or if your budget oriented, copper is only 997.00 and a much nicer table top show.
I love syphon coffee, these original units are way more fun. We have one in our shop. Customers have more fun with it when it is right in front of them, waiting is not so much an issue when they take part in the process.
Again you have to have the right setting. Ahh, like no small children to knock it over.

Beautiful presentation but I'm still waiting for my coffee and suffering through some godawful musak. 4 minutes and counting. I'm now staring at my partner wondering if were making coffee or........6 minutes and counting....aahhhh going in the cup at 6 minutes and 53 seconds. I think were going to have some coffee with our patience.
Now how much does this fancy vacpot cost?
I'd kind of like to own one for show but got to be in the right coffee shop.
