A very elegant 3 cup siphon complete with painted artwork from Yama. And as a bonus, it includes a butane burner (usually a $50 upgrade!).
Siphons produce some of the best non-espresso coffee you can drink today - the brewing method just lends itself to proper extraction and quick brewing times. The bonus is, it's a fantastic visual way to make coffee too! This is true table-service coffee, and a fantastic show to end your dinner party with.
This particular Yama model features a painted ceramic base, and a very stable stand system for holding the brewer in place during the brew phase. It uses a cloth filter system (extra cloth filters are easy to find and buy and are cheap), and the butane burner reduces heat up times by almost 75% when compared to cloth wick burners.
Ever since Hario "dumbed down" the (formerly) beautiful Nouveau siphons, this is one of our favourite siphons available today. I own two of these - the black model, and also a white one.
