The Yama provides a superb brewing method whcih produces smooth, undeniably delicious coffee. If you've never had vacuum brewed coffee before you'll be in for a treat - both visually and in taste.
This Yama 5 Espesso Cup Tabletop Coffee Siphon includes a warmer for liquid burning alcohol. Great for your after dinner coffee drinks brewed right at your table! Good for restaurant use as well.
Directions for use:
- Use a slightly finer grind of coffee. Drop the washable, reusable cloth covered filter into the infussion 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. Fill the bottom carafe to the 5 mark with hot water and place 5 measuring spoons of coffee in top chamber. Fill the burner with "soot free" denatured alcohol, ethyl or an ethyl / isopropyl mixture that's high on the ethanol side - isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) tends burns hotter than ethyl or methyl alcohols, but also burns orange and produces a lot of soot. This is available at hardware or outdoor stores. It takes about 4 minutes to heat the water, all the water is siphoned to the top chamber and then allow 2 minutes to brew. Once you remove from the heat source, the coffee comes back down to the bottom carafe. Remove the top, placing it in its convertible lid/stand, and bring the pot to the table for serving.
Approximate Syphon Height: 14 inches
