Why make this type of coffee brewer – making a siphon brewed coffee manually, requires complicated processes needing accurate timing and consistent temperature adjustments on an open flame. The KintchenAid’s new siphon coffee brewer will eliminate this tedious task with an easy setup and fewer components, while it maintains the distinctive flavors of a siphon brewed coffee.
How it works – The new coffee brewer utilizes vapor pressure in order to make a vacuum and lure hot water in from the glass carafe, upwards through the siphon tube, then into the upper brewing globe unit. This is where the coffee grounds will fully immersed with the hot water, effectively extracting the coffee’s full range of flavors. After reaching its brewing temperature, the heat shuts off and the vacuum is gone, resulting in the fresh brewed coffee streaming downwards through the reusable mesh filter made of stainless steel and back in the glass carafe.
Watching the brewing process, savoring the complex aromas & tasting the freshly brewed coffee makes a satisfying coffee ritual.

Combining the richness of a full immersion coffee brewing method, with the full flavor profile from freshly filtered brewed coffee, and without the need for using disposable filters.
