A Good Thing Remains Unchanged

I was reading through an article on this morning that highlighted a New York Tribune article from 1918, titled "How to Make Coffee, Circa 1918."  Now from my understanding, the preferred brew method of the day was the percolator and this article from nearly 100 years ago points out the poor results from this method.  The fun part was its recommendation of the coffee siphon and freshly ground coffee beans...good advice then, and good advice now.

Silex, the first to bring the coffee siphon to the U.S. market, patented the coffee siphon from a early French design around 1914.

Today, the Yama Coffee Siphon is one of our go to favorites for brewing more expensive single origin coffees.  They produce a clean cup, and allow the subtler notes often lost in other brewing methods to shine through.

Take a look at the CoffeeGeek article HERE.

We carry a full line of Yama Coffee Siphons, a good thing then, and a good thing now.
