Drip. Pour. Press. There are almost too many different ways to make good coffee, but if you’ve still got room in your kitchen you might want to check out the new Siphon Coffee Brewer from KitchenAid. The traditional vacuum coffee maker (aka vac pot, siphon or syphon) was originally invented in the 1830s. This new KitchenAid design is based off the same principles, but it’s far more advanced, and convenient, than the other options available. Coffee goes in the globe in the top, water goes in the carafe in the bottom. Using a heating element hidden in the stand, the water is heated to just-below-boiling. When that happens, the water moves to the brewing chamber to mix with the coffee. Coffee brews, temperatures change and the coffee returns to the carafe so you can drink it. It’s entertaining, delicious and actually quite convenient.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
