Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Siphon: Read Our Review

One of the simplest and most effective vacuum brewers is the Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Siphon. Find out about this great value option.

yama glass stovetop coffee siphon

Vacuum stovetop coffee pots have a long history and a deserved reputation for producing a fantastic brew. The fancy Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Siphon Brewer is sure one of the most entertaining ways to make coffee one could ever see.

The fantastic coffee comes from a consistent temperature and a fine cloth filter. The washable, reusable cloth covered filter covers the bottom hole of the top chamber with an attached chain that dangles down the siphon tube and hooks to the bottom of the tube.

Fill the bottom carafe with water and heat it over the stove. When it’s about to boil, firmly attach the upper glass pot, until the water slowly begins to boil. A slower boil is preferred.

Brazilian Coffee should be ground something between table and sea salt.

When boiling starts. The pressure in the lower chamber forces some of the water up the inner tube flooding the top bottle.

Wait until about 1/2 – 3/4 of the water has risen to the upper glass to add the desired amount of coffee to it and stir a bit. Place the Yama Glass Stovetop Coffee Siphon on medium-high heat.

After about 2 minutes, remove from the heat source, stir again and wait until a vacuum is created to suck the coffee back down into the lower glass.

This is a moment of pleasurable amusement.

Remove the top glass, and serve from the bottom vessel for applause!

    HI there,

    This looks like an extremely, unique and brilliant way to make coffee.

    I’d guess that it works in a fairly similar way to the italian espresso makers but in a larger way.

    Defo going to check out one of those Yama stove top coffee makers. Thank for sharing this article with us.

      Hello, Derek,

      Thank you very much for your words. If you are referring to the Bialetti Moka Express, I have to agree with you that both methods look very similar. It’s also very hard for me to choose which is better. They are tied on top of my list.

    Hi Caito,

    Your review makes my mouth water! I am a strong advocate of using glass instead of plastic to heat anything. In fact for the price, Yama Glass brewer is far superior to many of the coffee machines with plaster parts I see in the stores that cost more than twice the price of Yama Glass.

    Can you use it for any ground coffee or must it be Brazilian coffee only?

      Hello, Chuka,

      Thank you very much for your impressions. I agree with you entirely. Plastic is no good for heating things, unless it’s impossible to avoid.

      You can use the Yama Coffee Siphon with any other besides Brazilian coffee…. but…. thinking of it….

      WHY WOULD YOU?!?!?!

    Hey There
    You got my tastebuds wetted for a warm cup of coffee already!

    I usually use the plunger to brew my coffee and was always curious as to how this vacuum brewer worked.

    Very interesting and your explanation of the process was easy to understand.Thanks for that.

    Just out of curiosity, how many people can a preparation serve at a time?

    Thanks for the review.

    Hello Caito,
    You have very good details in your vacuum brewer review. Your quality and eye appeal are very evident in your content and photos. I especially like your description on how to grind and prepare your coffee for the best overall experience. Sometimes first-time coffee users will need a little direction in their new passion.
    I like the good feedback you received as well. Always encouraging to know you are on the right track with your Brazilian coffee website.
    Wishing you the best

      Hello, Marcel,

      Thank you so much for your words of support.

      What kind of brewer do you use?

      I’d be very happy to see you as many times as you’d wish to come back.
