  • Anyone got any hands-on experience with siphon brewers? Been hankering after one for years and finally have the space to keep one in the kitchen permanently (looking at the Hario Technica specifically). Willing to put up with the faff of cleaning if they reliably make a decent brew.

  • yeah loads, great for home, pain in the ass for a shop.

    I have a large old 70's bodum that i use to do 2-3 cups at home. make sure you get the paper filter attachement, cloth filters are awfully hard to keep clean and fresh.

    brew hotter but shorter and often have more body than a pour over

  • I can't imagine brewing that sort of thing in a shop, nor how frequently they'd be broken when being washed!

    Regarding the cloth filters, I've been led to believe it's just a case of washing them after use and storing them in water. Is that basically bollocks and they actually need a fair bit more work to keep fresh?
