Yama Glass 5 Cup Stovetop Coffee Siphon (Syphon)
This Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Syphon is a unique kind of brewer. Akin to something in a scientific laboratory, the vacuum style brewer is as much a conversation piece as it is a quality coffee brewer. The Yama Glass Siphon Brewer ships with one filter cloth, the filter assembly, a measuring spoon, the lid/stand, and the brewer itself. The 5 cup size specification refers to the Yama cup size, which measures to about 3-4 ounces per cup. Also available in the 8 cup size for multiple serving.
- Dimensions: 7"x7"x10"
- About 20oz serving capacity
- Made of heat-resistant borosilicate glass.
|Size||Short (10 cm)|
Directions for use:
Although Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol which is available at all drug stores can be used in the alcohol burner, Denatured Alcohol which can be purchased most hardware stores will burn hotter and help heat the water quicker.
I bought this one as a spare because it was on sale and I really like the coffee it makes; strong and no sludge. It is a little work, I stir the water and grounds when they are in the top part for two or three minutes. The one I'm using is some years old and still fits and seals just fine.
