Product Description

This is a stylish glass table top siphon with a ceramic base. This siphon fits 20-ounce, a 5 espresso size-cup capacity. Unlike our other table top siphons that use alcohol burners, this one uses a butane burner. Not only can you use this table top siphon for after dinner coffee drinks, but also great for cooking, restaurant use, and as a coffee siphon maker.

Very happy with this syphon.

The return policy is easy, but still involves re-packaging, taking time away from work to send it, etc.

Most importantly, it makes a delicious cup of coffee and is very fun to use.

I've always wanted to try out a vacuum brewer, and so I bought this one since it had a great price and included a burner. I have used the burner a few times at the table, but I have found I mostly prefer to simply use the gas stove. The butane burner does work well and has plenty of heat to get the job done. Plus the whole package is very handsome.

I didn't think I'd use this much because it's a bit more of a hassle than a french press, but I like the coffee it makes so much that I use it every day. I'm surprised it makes coffee that is better than the french press, but it does make it a lot smoother and the cup has absolutely no grounds or mud in it.

I roast my own coffee now, and this the perfect companion to the roaster for the way I like coffee, which is smooth, consistent, and flavorful. Plus it is fun to watch it work. The included bottom glass makes enough to for two normal sized coffee cups or one large mug for the road. It includes 5 cloth filters, and I have used the same one for many months now. Daily cleanup is with the sink sprayer which gets the filter clean enough for more use. Then once a week, I pull the filter out of the metal holder and clean it up well.

The amazon page states quite a long lead time for shipping, but it came in just over a week--which was great.

You wouldn't be investigating this product if you didn't love your coffee, so the fact that this is more work than a drip machine is likely irrelevant to you. The payoff for (not really all that much) extra work is a great cup. Once you've gone a few rounds with this method, the end to end time (burner-on to coffee-down) is less than 10 minutes. Actual brewing, which is the only part where you actually need to pay close attention, is 2 minutes. And man, the coffee is good.

I have no fewer than 6 coffeemaking appliances -- ancient Bodum Santos Electric (a warhorse that I used constantly for over 10 years, still works like new...sadly, Bodum stopped making these); reasonable mid-line drip machine (only use when I need to produce a volume of coffee for guests); a Bodum french press; an Aeropress (pretty cool, makes a smooth cup); a Coleman percolator we use for camping; and the Yama. They all have something to recommend them, but my runaway favorite is the Yama.

The manufacturer has made an honest attempt to make this unit pretty, with the floral scrolling in the base and its overall design. Even so, the first impression is that it's a bit rickety-looking. The screw-on uprights move a bit, and the whole thing flexes in a mildly unnerving way. But I've brewed well in excess of 100 pots in the Yama and it shows no sign of wear or failure. Nowadays I don't even question its sturdiness...it has help up just fine.

A few weeks into usage, I started getting a nasty flavor note. After some investigation online, I determined that it was buildup on the 3 cloth filters. I tried the various methods that were suggested for cleaning them, but was never able to completely eliminate that off-note, so I tossed them. There are two excellent alternatives to the cloth filters.

If you love a French Press, but want to move into something a bit more elegant and exotic to make coffee the Siphon Based System is just the answer. I opted for this device because it is fueled by Butane Gas - the same gas to fill Cigarette Lighters.

If you love hot coffee that is not burnt or over cooked, and you wish to get away from the paper filters, this Siphon Pot of perfect. I loved it.

My parents used a vacuum coffee maker back in the 1950's...that being said the absolutely best cup of coffee I've ever had in my life was in Jakarta (on, of course, the island of Java) from a table-top vacuum coffee maker.
This product makes absolutely perfect coffee. The presentation for guests is amazing.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS COFFEE MAKER.

The siphon is absolutely beautiful. the gold leaf and black porcelain evokes that refined fusion of european and asian aesthetic like whistler's peacock room and the whole thing is very impressive looking. the butane burner is also really sexy and fun to play with and very easy to fill (fills with standard cans of butane lighter fluid). Most importantly, it makes a delicious cup of coffee and is very fun to use. Lower acidity than french press but similarly robust flavor.

However, the package is simply not protected effectively during shipping. The upper ceramic piece came chipped, and although I superglued it back in place pretty easily, now there's a little gap of white in the porcelain and it drives me sort of nuts whenever i see it. I wouldn't let that stop you from buying a siphon, i just worry that it could come with even worse damage. I'm gonna look into getting the top portion replaced, but i don't want to send back the whole unit as it was a gift (she loves it btw).

This is a great product. It makes serving coffee a celebration. I love having it all set up and then lighting the burner to have perfectly brewed coffee. I have it set on the porch in the morning and then set it up in the evening for a great cup of coffee. Very Very pleased.
