Yama Glass 5 Cup Stovetop Coffee Syphon (SY5)

Sold out

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 5 cup size specification refers to the Yama cup size, which measures to about 3-4 ounces per cup.

  • Dimensions: 7"x7"x10"
  • About 14oz


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 5 cup mark with hot water and place 5 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 Glass 5 Cup Stovetop Coffee Syphon

          This is a high quality unit engineered to make great coffee once you have optimized the variables. The grind is quite important requiring a relatively coarse grind compared to my usual espresso grind. Careful attention must be paid to the heating of the water and its temperature during all phases of the brew. Once you figure that out, you will be able to brew excellent coffee quite reproducibly.

          Big thumbs up for this syphon!

          I am new to the world of syphon brewing and recently purchased a Bodum Pebo, I spent 3 weeks going back and forth with Bodum support trying many variations to get the syphon to drawdown without stalling. I gave up and purchased the Yama 5 cup stovetop and from the day I received it I love it. It has operated flawlessly and I am enjoying both the process and the smooth coffee on a daily basis. I don't have any issues with this syphon at all. As a side note the people at Coffee Addicts were great in explaining my filter options and the order was processed and delivered in a timely fashion. It is nice to support a Canadian company.
