Longer Ceramic Head Butane Burner for Siphon Coffee discussion, here:
I am currently working on a re-write of CoffeeGeek Siphon Coffee Maker How To, and I was exploring various heating technologies used to heat up the water for brewing, when I stumbled upon something that seems to be a big hit in Japan and Asia right now, but I haven't really seen for sale over here in North America yet: Ceramic head butane burners. A friend of mine over in Osaka swears by them for his coffee shop, saying they have decreased the water heat up time for his siphons by about 25% over old butane burners, and are about 50-60% faster than using halogen table top heaters for siphon coffee. So I ended up ordering one through eBay (as mentioned, I could not find any North American vendors). It arrived yesterday. Here it is.
