Yama Glass 8 Cup Stovetop Coffee Syphon (SY8)


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 8 cup size specification refers to the Yama cup size, which measures to about 3-4 ounces per cup.

  •  Dimensions: 7"x7"x12"
  • About 24oz


Directions for use:

  1. Use a slightly finer grind of coffee, somewhere around "auto drip" however you may experiment to taste.
  2. Drop the washable, reusable cloth covered filter into the infusion chamber with the chain hanging down into the glass syphon tube. Pull the chain down until you can hook it to the bottom of the siphon tube.
  3. Fill the bottom carafe to the 8 cup mark with hot water and place 8 measuring spoons of coffee mark in top chamber.
  4. Using the wire trivet between the coffee siphon and the burner place the coffee siphon on the burner and turn on to medium heat. DO NOT TURN THE BURNER ON HIGH
  5. As the water boils, it will be siphoned up to the top chamber where it will infuse with the ground coffee. A little water will always remain in the bottom water chamber.
  6. Let brew about 60 seconds, then remove the pot from the heat source.
  7. Once the coffee starts to cool the liquid is siphoned back down into the bottom carafe. Remove the top, placing it in its convertible lid/stand, and bring the pot to the table for serving.
  8. Gently rock the upper carafe back and forth until it can easily be removed and placed into it's stand.
  9. Serve and enjoy your fresh great tasting coffee.

          Fun new way to make a morning cup

          Did not come with measuring spoon as illustrated, first attempt was fine but will need to experiment with amount of coffee used to get that perfect cup

          This is actually my 5th purchase

          This is actually the 5th time I've purchased this product in the past 20 years... what can I say that my wife hasn't... I'm clumsy at times and paid the price for it... lol

          Kidding aside, I love this product. It brews a consistent cup of coffee. I've recommended it to everyone I know and if you're curious enough to be reading this review... just buy it... you will not regret it... Just take the time get to know your personal ratios. Log it in a journal.

          Regarding Coffee Addicts... they shipped fast and I liked the hand written thank you. Will shop here again.^__^
