Down to a science

WhittardHeritage tea and coffee brand Whittard might be known for its library of leaves and beans, but for this hi-tech contraption? Not so much. More laboratory than kichen counter, the Hario Syphon Technica brews coffee by exanding and reducing air pressure, giving a chemist’s control over grind, temperature and extraction. Begin by adding water to the lower chamber and lighting the flame for a cuppa. £95.
