The Yama Siphon (or Syphon) Brewer is a modern reincarnation of an old coffee brewer design, bringing back an elegant brewing process with outstanding results. Simply pour water into the bottom glass, insert the top chamber so it is nice and snug, and heat it over the included butane burner until it slowly begins to boil. If it is heating too fast and boiling rapidly, adjust the heat source to ensure a slower boil. At this point, the water will rise into the upper glass and saturate the waiting grounds. Some even recommend to wait until about 1/2 - 3/4 of the water has risen to the upper glass to dump the grounds into the top glass. Once every last drop of flavor has been extracted from the ground beans (will take approximately 2 minutes depending upon desired strength), remove the flame and the condensation in the bottom bowl will create a vacuum and will draw the coffee down through the tube (and filter) into the lower glass. To serve, remove the upper glass and use the built in handle to pour a fantastic cup of coffee.
- The Siphon (or vacuum pot) brewing method is extremely hands-on, allowing a high degree of control over the brewing process. Simply remove the heat source when you want the brew to be complete!
