Ten years after a Scottish marine engineer called James R. Napier, designed another syphon brewer named Napier coffee pot. But it was a French woman called Marie Fanny Amelie Massot, who designed the first commercial vacuum pot, who will soon-to-be-famous (it seems that Napier didn’t have the money to deposit the patent).
The French one designed a Syphon in which there are two chambers (one on the bottom and one on the top) held by a frame. And lastly, a balance brewer or Belgian brewer was invented in 1842 without leaving its mark. syphon coffee
About the Syphon
A Syphon coffee maker is unique of its kind: unlike any other brewing method, a syphon coffee maker is both immersion and vacuum. The bottom chamber is filled with water close to the boiling temperature.
While water is heating we can grind our coffee and when water reaches 94° we can put the top bowl on to allow water to start steeping our coffee grounds. When heating up, the vapour starts creating pressure inside the lower chamber. As the water moves up into the top chamber we need to regulate the heat to prevent the water from getting superheated causing crack to the chamber.
