Is a Japanese siphon 5 cup coffee maker. A hard won prize at our Annual Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner Silent Auction.
Today was our play day -- the fondue pot made it's maiden voyage for a cheesy luncheon fondue. Afterwards, we made coffee with our new prize.
It's easy to do -- you put water in the bottom, add heat, put the second piece on top with the coffee in it. And wait . . .
For a watched pot truly does not boil -- at least not very quickly . . . and as we waited . . .
The water went UP into the top container and then back down into the bottom one. A stir or two of the coffee in the upper pot to release the flavor of the grounds is all that is required.
A set of tiny espresso cups -- just two -- just for us -- was the perfect vessel for our new coffee. It was a good cup of coffee. We drank the first one black and then added cream to the second for we really are cream people.
Husband Jim did good at the auction -- it's a fun coffee maker.
