Time Out says

More like watching a science experiment than stopping into your neighborhood cafe, the process of getting a cup of coffee at Andy Atkinson’s new shop is a marathon of measuring, weighing, pouring, stirring and timing. Coffee fiends will want to drop in to taste the supremely subtle, nuanced results of the Siphon—a two-chamber glass implement that brews coffee via heat-powered vacuum—or to shoot back an espresso from the city’s first Slayer machine. Minimalist fiends, on the other hand, can feast on the interior, which is nothing much more than a few modern chairs and yellow tables.
