Siphon Coffee is Amazing! To my understanding, this is the only coffee shop in Texas serving siphon coffee. The team work hard to provide a true community coffee house; from using local roasters to building a special rapport with each guest.
The siphon coffee is just phenomenal, clean finish, full bodied, and delightful; real craft coffee. Plan to have a a good 10-15 minutes when you visit if you plan to get a siphon. The Barista's work hard to perfect each pull of espresso perfectly, and continually raise the bar in the pursuit of the perfect shot. I drive about 25 miles each way, atleast twice a week to come in and enjoy a nice evening with friends.

I will add, for a coffee house as hip and chic as Siphon, the staff are friendly, warm and welcoming to all equally. I have experienced at other coffee shops aires that I am not hip, cool, or part of that scene... Siphon is the laid back atmosphere of the coffee shop on the show Friends, with a bit more modern atmosphere.

This is a must see!

A must stop for any one visiting Houston. Great coffee and pastries! Parking is easy too. Have to go just to see the unique way of brewing a cup of coffee using the siphon method! Helpful and friendly staff who make a perfect cup of whatever you're craving!

Siphon coffee is a new addition to the Houston coffee scene with a selection of excellent coffees and one of the few shops serving siphon prepared coffee. Siphon prepared coffees provide a nice, clean coffee with virtually no sediment and robust flavor. The location offers other standard coffee fares from drip to cappuccino using free trade beans. They also provide a good selection of healthy snacks and sandwiches which are ideal for a quick meal. I prefer the siphon coffee most!

The location is situated on West Alabama between Travis and Montrose inside the loop. The shop is new and the owners succeeded with a quaint "hipster-chic" look which works well with te crowd there with their laptops/tablets to work while enjoying their coffee.
