The Hario TCA-5 is a beautiful piece of equipment that, with a little practise, produces the most wonderful coffee. As an after-dinner or "special" option, the syphon adds theatre, interest and fun to the coffee-lovers repertoire. Full immersion brings out the sweetness and fruity flavours of your chosen bean. Complete with alcohol burner/heater (always consider "upgrading" to a butane heater or a Hario Halogen heater for a faster, more controlled process) The perfect device, or gift, for coffee geeks! Enjoy the huge 5 cup/600 ml brewing capacity for all your needs.
