Siphon coffee is often described as fragrant, bold, and with a long finish, making it suitable for those who enjoy a technical experience. However, you can adjust the brewing parameters according to your taste by:

  • If the coffee is too sour: This is usually caused by a coarse grind or a short brewing time, resulting in the coffee not fully extracting all the flavors, making the sourness more prominent than other flavors. You should adjust the grind size to be slightly finer.

  • If the coffee is too bitter: You should check the brewing time, and adjust by using a coarser grind. Additionally, if the bitterness is unpleasant, like medicine, rancid, or astringent, it is likely that the coffee beans were over-roasted, or the quality of the coffee beans is poor. You can try a different supplier that suits you better, or look for a lighter roasted coffee.

  • If you want a stronger coffee: Grind the coffee a bit finer or use less water.

  • If you want a lighter coffee: You can adjust by using a coarser grind or adding 10-15ml of filtered water directly to the coffee.
