I did not stumble across any indie coffeehouses serving siphon coffee while in Hiroshima or Fukuyama, so I was surprised when I spotted the brewers at this airport cafe, Mellow Brown.

I was even more surprised, and pleased, to learn that a siphon coffee was included as part of the drink set menu. Unfortunately, the offering is their house blend, and it immediately tasted much darker than I would prefer.

Of all the siphons I've had, this would have to be my least favourite--I can't say I enjoy it any more than the Starbucks samples I've had in the city.
