The Cona vacuum brewer will make great coffee if one of its main flaws can be worked around.

The problem is with the spirit lamp that delivers an uneasy, difficult to control flame.

This is the way I see it:

You either manage to master the difficult heat source


You try to adapt a butane burner to replace it.

If you work that problem around, great results are what you get when the coffee is prepared touching only glass and no metal or paper whatsoever. The taste is smooth and clean.

    I enjoyed the thorough review of the cona coffee maker, had not seen one of these in awhile. As a coffee lover, I am always interested in making a better cup at home. I do have to agree, the video showed too finely ground beans to be a problem; suppose one has to play with the formula to make the result to their liking. Thanks!

      Hello, Todd,

      Thank you for your words. I totally agreed with you. Cooking is not an exact science. And it also depends on personal taste. Therefore, experimenting is crucial to achieving what’s best for each person.

    This Cona Coffee Maker looks cool! I am also a big coffee fan. I buy my coffee from Hawaii but I use a simple and cheap coffee maker to brew it. I didn’t know about coffee makers like this! I have a few questions. Does it take longer to brew a cup of coffee with this device? How different does the coffee taste using this coffee maker? Are there any other coffee makers similar to this one that also deliver a high quality cup of coffee? Thank you for teaching me about high end coffee brewers!

      Hello, Christina,

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your impressions. It takes just a bit longer than normal drip brew due to preparation. The rest is boiling water and normal resting-after time.

      In My opinion, vacuum coffee and Moka coffee are the best tasting methods, followed closely by manual cloth filter pour over , and a bit farther by manual paper pour over. I try not to compare espresso with drip brewing since I think they are too different to be considered in the same category. If I had too, I’d put together with vacuum and Moka. Moka is sort of a hybrid, in my opinion.

      It all depends on what your intentions are:

      a) If you want a fancy vacuum coffee brewer as a souvenir to have fun and good coffee with friends the Cona Coffee Maker is fantastic, but at a higher price.

      b) If you want to have a great coffee vacuum brew for wonderful everyday taste, I suggest that you may want to try the Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Siphon , a less expensive unit that is very popular among vacuum brewers.
