We have chosen to utilise a syphon brewer to make our hot comforter.
Whilst primarily used to brew coffee, we have introduced the syphon technique with our comforter to offer our guests a different and engaging brewing experience.
Originally invented in the 1830s, the syphon now finds itself becoming more popular
than ever- nestled inside only the trendiest cafes in town.
Combine all ingredients in the top chamber of the syphon and place it on an angle to delay the brewing process from starting until your water is boiled to the correct temperature.
Light the flame underneath your syphon and heat the water until it reaches 100deg Celsius.
Once it has reached boiling temperature, place the top chamber into place in your syphon. This will start the process for the boiling water to reach up into the brewing chamber.
Stir your ingredients well into the water to aid the brewing process and cover with lid.
The ingredients will brew for a total of three minutes. After 1.5 minutes, ensure you stir your mixture again.
After 3 minutes, remove the flame from the bottom of your syphon. Lift the lid of the brewing chamber and stir a final time.
Your brewed drink will now be filtered back into the bottom chamber. Once all has drained, remove the top chamber from the syphon.
Leave your drink to cool slightly (this will help intensify your flavours) and serve.
