Available at Amazon.co.uk

The Coffee Master 5-Cup Syphon/Vacuum Glass Coffee Maker offers a unique and fascinating way to brew your coffee. It has the capacity to make 5 small cups of perfectly brewed coffee using a method that is sure to please anyone with an interest in coffee gadgets and physics. Vacuum coffee making systems first appeared around 1840, and were quite fashionable in the first half of the 20th century. They now provide an alternative way to brew your coffee, that can also be entertaining.

The Coffee Master Vacuum Coffee Pot will make an interesting gift for the coffee connoisseur, and can look good on display in the kitchen, as well as being a good conversation piece. The appliance consists of two glass chambers with a filter in between, suspended over a spirit lamp. When heated, water is forced from the lower chamber into the upper chamber containing ground coffee. The heat source is then removed and the vacuum created effectively draws brewed coffee back into the lower chamber. The coffee can then be poured. This method of coffee extraction is believed to produce a particularly aromatic and flavoursome cup, that is clean, smooth, and free from sediment.
