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. Warning: use extreme caution when heating with an open flame directions for use: use a slightly finer grind of Coffee than used for auto drip, however you may experiment to taste. 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. Fill the bottom carafe to the 8 cup mark with hot water and place 8 measuring spoons of Coffee mark in top chamber. 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 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. Let brew about 60 seconds, then remove the pot from the heat source. 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. Gently Rock the upper carafe back and forth until it can easily be removed and placed into it's stand. Serve and enjoy your fresh great tasting Coffee.

I know taste is subjective, but I want to add my tips for making the best coffee:
1. Use cold filtered water
2. Do not preheat the water - Place the whole assembled unit with grounds on the burner
3. Grind your own beans - Medium to medium-fine works for me (I like a medium roast Ethiopian)
4. USE LOW HEAT - It will take much longer to brew, but the longer steeping time makes rich coffee
5. Once it starts bubbling at the end of brewing, stir the grounds/water mixture in the top chamber and remove heat
6. Let it cool gradually
7. Wait for the vacuum (air sucking) sounds and bubbles in the bottom pot before removing the top chamber
To protect the glass, I recommend using only plastic utensils for stirring and cleaning.
I have used the cloth filters, paper filters, stainless filter rig (available on Amazon), and Cory filter rods. Honestly, they all make great coffee. But I like using the Cory rod the best only because only glass touches the coffee when you use it. Cleanup is a bit of a pain, but not terrible. I let the grounds dry for about an hour before starting to clean the pot, and that seems to work better than cleaning with wet grounds. I bought a dish brush that is small enough to fit through the pot's neck for cleaning the bottom pot. For cleaning the downtube, I just twist a damp paper towel into a "snake", put a drop of dishwashing liquid on it, and pass it through the downtube for a quick clean. I have also used a bottle brush to clean the downtube.
I have five different electric vacuum pots (all vintage) and three other brands of stovetop vacuum maker (new and vintage), but the Yama is the one that works best for me. It's not as fast to brew, or as easy to clean, as a countertop electric drip maker, and it does require vigilance and intervention to keep from boiling away all the water and cracking the glass. But any minor inconvenience is well worth the coffee that comes out!
Still, the reason for number four is now that the very bottom of the tube has chipped and cracked from contact with the metal hook on the spring that holds the filter unit in place. Tension on the spring is light, so no undue pressure. This number three unit has been in once a day service since April 2020.
My take on all this is that I have never had a Pyrex brand glass vessel of any kind suffer this kind of breakage, so I'm wondering if the Yama Borosilicate glass is thinner or simply not made to the same specifications. It could also be that the Pyrex branded thermal glass hasn't seen use with this type of container.
So, does it make great coffee? Absolutely! It does take some experience and tweaking to get there, and understanding your own personal preferences, however. I just wish that some parts of the Yama Vacuum Maker was re-enforced at key points with stainless steel or what have you. It would then be ideal and deserving of all five stars.
The plus side - product works as described.
If you enjoy weaker coffee then precisely follow the instructions that come with the unit.
I personally, enjoy strong coffee with bold flavor. It took a couple of tries to accomplish this, however I was successful. So, if you enjoy strong or stronger coffee with bold flavor, grind or use coffee that has been ground to a medium fine grain. Follow the unit's instructions up to the point where it says something like, ..once the water comes to a boil remove it from the heat. LEAVE IT ON THE HEAT for a few more minutes. The required time will be determined by how strong you like your coffee. I left it on for an additional 5 minutes to allow the coffee to steep in the hot water. As long as the water in the coffe pot is at a boil, then the water up in the brewing chamber will remain there until the coffee pot cools.
The down side - this unit is very fragil! Not only is it fragil, due to the very narrow mouth on the coffee pot on tube on the brewing chamber, it is a B*TCH to clean! Becareful!!
Would I buy another one??? Is it worth the money?? NOPE... Let me revise that... HELL NO!
When this one breaks, I'll go back to a Stainless Steel French Press. The "COOL and WOW" factor got me to buy this particular unit... Which goes to show that you really should not be looking at Amazon late at night when you can't sleep! LOL!

I have tried all different methods in brewing coffee and I find the Coffee Siphon's brew an outstanding cup of joe. Hence the lack of hesitation on my part to order a 3rd one... After I knocked my 2nd one off the counter...
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Yama is best bang for the buck and the stove top models are just practical IMO compared the versions that require a burner.
Only drawback is that the little metal pad that's meant to go directly on the burner to opt-out the glass broke on first use. You can just put it in a small frying pan though.
