Montrose's Siphon Coffee is finally certified open. Owners Michael Caplan and Edward Treistman have employed the help of former Brasserie 19 executive chef Amanda McGraw in creating a menu of empanadas, breakfast tacos, panini and pastries. They've also procured coffee beans from Houston-based Amaya Roasting Company to serve as a high-quality base for the Japanese brewing method at the center of their new establishment. "[We] brew coffee on a halogen-warmed siphon machine that extracts the oils and aromas like no other process," Caplan told Eater about the beautiful- to-watch process. The lengthy method also means a heftier price tag. Each siphon costs $11, which is completely worth it for coffee nerds who appreciate a solid cup of coffee with their Wi-Fi.
In addition to offering locals a high-grade caffeine fix, the new shop also offers four wines and eight Texas craft beers on tap. The new W. Alabama spot's regular hours begin tomorrow (June 3): Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday from 7 a.m. to midnight; Saturday from 8 a.m. to midnight and Sunday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Here now, check out the complete space below:
