The siphon brewer was once a fairly common coffee-making method, but it fell out of favor when drip brewers and percolators came onto the scene. As more and more people have come to value the nuances of flavor in coffee, siphon brewing has made a comeback, along with tabletop service at some of the fanciest cafés and restaurants. The Yama 8-cup stovetop coffee siphon uses a combination of full-immersion brewing, consistent brew temperature and cloth filter during the draw-down cycle to create full-flavored coffee with a clean flavor profile common to filtered coffee.
SIPHON COFFEE ON YOUR STOVETOP
The Yama stovetop brewer doesn’t require a fancy stand setup and burner as a heating source. The heat-proof borosilicate glass siphon does its magic on your stovetop so you never have to hunt down fuel in order to use it.
CONTROL IS IN YOUR HANDS
With a siphon brewer, you control the variables to customize the resulting coffee to your liking. Once you’ve mastered the basics of the vacuum brewing method, you can customize the amount of coffee, the grind and the extraction time required to make coffee just the way you like it.
DRAMA IN A COFFEE POT
Forget about the tempest in a teapot. The Yama coffee siphon provides drama in a coffee pot. As the water in the bottom chamber heats, it will slowly rise into the upper chamber to immerse the ground coffee. From this point on, timing is everything. Knock down the bloom once or twice and let the coffee extract for two to three minutes, depending on the strength you want. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand. When the bottom chamber cools, the coffee in the top chamber will suddenly be drawn through the filter back into the bottom chamber with a sudden whoosh. Remove the top chamber and enjoy one of the best cups of coffee you’ll ever make.
