Positive Product Points

This is an inexpensive but very functional brewer. The seal is the best of any vac pot I've tried. Flat bottom allows for stovetop use. Its my everyday brewer.

Negative Product Points


Detailed Commentary

My first vac pot was the Bodum Santos(Non Electric). That was my first vac pot brewer and how I learned about this great way of making coffee. My next was the Cona D which I think is elegant and beautiful but I use it only on special occassions. The Yama has become my trusty everyday vac pot. I often use it twice a day. The glass is rugged and the seal is positive yet easy to remove, far better than the more expensive Cona and Bodum seals. Since I usually make about (3) 6 oz cups of coffee at a time, the Yama is ideal. I got rid of the cloth filters and use the nylon mesh filter from the Bodum electric Santos. The original Yama spring can be easily adapted to fit the Bodum filter. Trips south are rapid and very consistent. No stoppages of any kind. So far I've reused the Bodum filter for about 8 months without a problem. The flat bottom of the Yama allows for direct stove top use. The mouth of the lower flask is wide enough to allow for easy cleaning.

Buying Experience

Bought from Sweet Maria's. Excellent service. No fuss, no muss.
