The Yama Syphon (or Siphon) Brewer is most likely the fanciest way to make coffee you'll ever see. For coffee geeks, it's not merely an entertaining way to make coffee, but one of the best brewing methods created. The full-immersion brewing, consistant brew temperature, and cloth filter combine to bring out the best in your coffee. Simply pour 40 oz. of water into the bottom glass, attach firmly the upper glass chamber, and heat it over the stove until it slowly begins to boil. If it is heating too fast and boiling rapidly, monitor 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 coffee (will take approximately 2 minutes depending upon desired strength), remove from the stove (careful, the bottom will be hot) and the coffee will be drawn down through the tube (and filter) into the lower glass. To serve, simply remove the upper glass and set it in the top/lid. The bottom container can now be used as a serving vessel. Enjoy!

Yama

Yama has specialized in hand-blown glass brewing equipment since 1978 and they've become known for their coffee siphons and cold brew towers. The siphon brewer utilizes a heat source to boil water and push it into an upper brewing chamber, then sucks the coffee down through a cloth filter and back into the bottom chamber. Hands down, it's the most involved and captivating way of making coffee. Similar to the siphon, Yama's cold coffee dripper looks more like lab equipment than a coffee maker. It uses a slow dripping process to brew a strong concoction of coffee that's destined to be served over ice.

Best Coffee Maker Ever

The Yama Coffee Vacpot 8 Cup Stovetop Siphon/Syphon, as far as I'm concerned, is the best coffee maker ever. To me the coffee has a richer flavor and is way better tasting than a Mr. Coffee, per say. This is my second pot that I have purchased, and I wouldn't buy any other type of coffee maker. I just wished that the Yama Company made a bigger pot, say a 10 or 12 cup maker.

So much better than the Bodum Siphon

Yama's glass makes the difference on this Siphon model; it is way better than Bodum's version. The price is better too! My only wish is that there a stand for the upper bowl after the coffee filters. Nevertheless, an excellent product and buy.

Excellent quality.

We think that the syphon stovetop coffee maker makes excellent coffee and we are very impressed with the sturdiness and the quality (workmanship and glass) of the Yama brand. We highly recommend it.

Great coffee and beautiful to look at!

I use it almost every morning. Looks beautiful in my vintage kitchen, and makes excellent coffee. Love how you can control exactly how long the grounds steep in the hot water. Not a pain to clean either - something I was a little concerned about.

Fun to watch!

This was a gift to myself for my birthday. Coffee is a whole new experience now! I think it works great, and simple to use. It is a process though, and you had better love coffee. I recommend the stainless filter to go with it.

Awesome coffee maker!

This is the second of these that I've purchased, and Prima had by far the best price! This method of coffee brewing is so simple, gives all the flavor of the french press method without the sediment, provides a hotter cup of coffee, is quicker to brew (especially with an electric kettle to preheat the water), and easier to clean! My wife jokes that this is my 'mini meth-lab', and she's not far off!

My first coffee siphon was sent to an early demise. I finally was able to order a replacement, and now I can once again enjoy the magical experience of this coffee

Good hot coffee

I really like the fact that this coffee maker makes really hot coffee. My mother had one of these when we were kids and I was responsible for accidentally breaking it. And besides that, it is very pretty to look at.

A GREAT cup of coffee!

I can't say enough good about this coffee maker. Not only is it cool to watch, but it makes a great cup of coffee. My girlfiend loves it on the weekend when I make coffee with the siphon. She raves about the coffee taste all the time. It's fun to watch the water move from the bottom vessel to the top, then once the bottom cools watch the (now coffee) move back down. I recommend that if you have an electric stove you use the diffuser that comes with the system. I also recommend getting a vintage Cory glass filter from either a website named for a river, or a well known auction site. ;) I also recommend using the small burner on an electric range, as the bigger ones may cause the handle to get hot along with the rest of the pot. Also, you can use the piece that looks like a lid for that purpose, and to use as a stand for the upper vessel once the lower is full of coffee. As for the coffee, you should use a grind that is a little bit finer than what you would use for a french press. In other words a bit course. I use a grinder set on 24 - 28 which produces a medium coarse grind. This produces a smooth and flavorful cup of coffee. The best thing about this system is you get the essential oils from the beans since the whole system is in essence an immersion system where you put the coffee in the water, stir and let it steep before it flows into the lower vessel. Bottom line if you want a great tasting cup of coffee, this is the way to go.
