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.
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.Read more ›
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.
This product makes absolutely perfect coffee. The presentation for guests is amazing.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS COFFEE MAKER.
This is not difficult to use. I watched a couple of videos on YouTube on the concept overall, but it worked like a charm. We used five scoops for the five cup mark, and it makes a pretty strong cup this way, not quite espresso, but close. Works well for us, as we like milk and sugar, but if you like it black and not so strong, you may want to try four scoops. btw, we weighed one scoop of grounds on our digital kitchen scale, and it came to 7 grams for the grind we are using, which is pretty fine.
The result? Wow, what a great cup of java! There really are nuances here that you just don't get with a drip coffee maker. Even our Italian stove-top espresso maker doesn't quite measure up, although it is very good, too.
The butane burner is really first quality, adjustable in very small increments, feels heavy and substantial, and the control knob is smooth and sure.
And, it's beautiful! This would make a nice presentation for company, although to get four full cups of coffee you'll likely want to make two batches. But it is quick enough to do so that it really isn't an issue.
Be careful taking the top carafe off, because it will, of course, be hot. But this is a great piece of equipment, both aesthetically and for the fine coffee it makes. We're really happy with it!

Fun gift - but we only use it like once a year. It smells up the kitchen because of the amount of butane it uses. Fun for a crowd, but not good for practical every day use.Published 9 months ago by Caitlin S
