First, attach the filter to the bottom of the upper chamber. To do so, there is a little metal chain attached to a clip (the filter) that you should see dangling out of the funnel. Pull the chain down far enough to get the clip to attach the bottom of the funnel. If you don’t do this part correctly, your coffee will be ruined. You can also reference your siphon coffee maker’s user guide for a diagram on how to do this. Set the upper chamber safely aside while you proceed to the next step.
Once the filter is properly attached, pour the water (preheated water is best) into the lower chamber. Place the upper chamber on top of the lower chamber. Loosely place the funnel inside of the bottom chamber just so that it sits at an angle.
Place your heat source underneath your siphon brewer. Next, turn the heat up high and wait for the water to boil. Pressure will build in the lower chamber, pushing the water upwards through the funnel into the upper chamber.
Reduce the heat once most of the water is up top. Next, add your measured coffee grounds to the upper chamber. Start a timer, and stir the coffee grounds into the water using a wooden spoon or bamboo paddle. Move your paddle in the shape of the letter “N.” Move it up, down, up, left and then right.
This motion will ensure that the coffee grounds get completely submerged in the water. Wait about 45 seconds, and then stir it again in this same motion of the letter “N.” After about another 45 seconds, turn the heat off. Allow the coffee to flow to the lower chamber.
At this point, all that's left to do is remove the upper chamber and serve your siphon coffee.
