Siphon (or Syphon) brewers made their way to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century and became popular for their elegance, showmanship, and ability to produce a clean and flavorful cup of coffee. The combination of coffee as commodity and the convenience of electricity caused the Siphon brewer to fall off the map in the middle to late 20th century. Recently the Siphon has rode the wave of specialty (or culinary) coffee back into the spotlight. While the beautiful glass and open flame brewing process still keep the elegance and showmanship in tact, the Siphon is most coveted for it's ability to brew the best cup of coffee you've ever had. In the eyes of many coffee aficionados, the combination of full-immersion brewing, consistent temperature stability, and use of a cloth filter make the Siphon the ideal coffee brewer. It is the favorite method of many of us at Prima and we're confident you will love it as well. We know the Siphon can seem intimidating at first, so take a look at the links below for more information.

The 5 cup (591 mL) size siphon can be found here.

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.
Yama Coffee Vacpot 3 Cup Tabletop Siphon/Syphon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Coffee At first I was skeptical but after brewing my first cup, I'm hooked it's a great cup of coffe. You don't realize how different the taste is when you're brewing in a plastic machine. I drink my coffe black and it's one of the best cups I've had.

Asked by: sapphire19
Tabletop Siphons include an alcohol burner. You can, however, add and upgrade to a butane burner.

Hey, Yiran. We do carry replacement parts for the Yama siphons, but the TCA-3D-Top is unfortunately on back order at the moment. We're expecting more stock in April.

Hello! I love your stuff! My question is will the 5 cup stand work with the 3 cup siphon version glassware... and are the stands interchangeable with other brands? Like a Yama stand with a Hario boiler ...Hario base with a Yama set etc. Thank you.
