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.

          Yama Coffee

          This is a great cup of coffee

          Wonderful product from Taiwan

          I brought the product because I love siphon coffee. Also because this one can be used on stovetop and serve more people. I bought a smaller unit from Japan but that one cannot used on a stove. I was skeptical at first worrying whether the glass unit made in Taiwan is comparable to the Japanese ones, particularly I have to boil it on my electrical range. Now all my worries have been gone. I have used the unit multiple times on my stove, no issue at all! I am really enjoying the coffee it made! I will definitely be buying from that brand again. Wonderful product from Taiwan!

          I love the flavour of Syphon coffee and I have a couple smaller Syphon coffee makers that I have been using over the years, but this is by far my favourite. Full body flavour and perfect texture. The larger size is very convenient when brewing larger batches when company is over.

          Bigger Yama

          We have used the five cup Yama for two decades or more.
          Typically I roast Kenya AA every week and an alternate every week.
          A few weeks ago the siphon tube cracked on the five cup Yama after twenty years of use.

          The eight cup actually is the optimum size for my wife and I.
          We make 6 to 6.5 cups per session.
          The Yama makes the best tasting coffee I have ever tasted what ever the bean we use.
          Other methods do not bring through the delicate coffee flavour side notes you will quickly notice with the Yama when paired with a great bean.

          If you want absolutely superb tasting coffee the Yama will easily do the job.
