Reinventing
the Siphon Coffee Brewer

Siphon Coffee Brewers are preferred among professional baristas for producing unmatched flavor and intensity infusions.

Through a strategic alliance with Taurus Group, we aimed to solve the effort and fair degree of caution required for classic siphon brewers, packed into a fun and satisfying household appliance.

The Beauty
of a Siphon System

A siphon coffee maker is a full immersion brew system, producing a light, clearer flavored brew in two steps:
1. The lower chamber of the system uses a direct heat source to create a vacuum (siphon), forcing water upwards and into the upper chamber, where grinded beans are placed.
2. Once the coffee grounds have steeped in hot water for a while, the vacuum created in the bottom chamber drags the coffee-rich liquid back down through the system’s filter.
The result will be an infusion that’s deliciously pure in aroma, carrying every nuance of flavor from a rich grind.

Concept Design

Through continous exploration, a design language was developed to communicate a strong brand identity with crisp, visual ergonomics and bold aesthetics.
