Location: /Equipment/Yama 5-cup (20oz) Vacuum Pot
The perfect gift for your most favorite coffee geek!
After testing several vacuum pot models out, we found that Yama makes the best quality for the price. The proportions are perfect and your the quality of your coffee is all but guaranteed.
Instructions for use: Use a slightly finer grind of coffee. Drop the washable, reusable cloth covered filter into the infussion chamber with the chain hanging down into the glass syphon tube. Pull the chain down until you can hook it to the bottom of the siphon tube. Fill the bottom carafe to the 5 mark with hot water and place 5 measuring spoons of coffee in top chamber. Fill the burner with "soot free" denatured alcohol, ethyl or an ethyl / isopropyl mixture that's high on the ethanol side - isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) tends to burn hotter than ethyl or methyl alcohols but also burns orange and produces a lot of soot. The right alcohol is available at hardware or outdoor stores. It takes about 4 minutes to heat the water. Once all the water is siphoned to the top chamber allow 2 minutes to brew. Remove from the heat source, and the coffee gets vacuumed back into the bottom carafe. Remove the top, placing it in its convertible lid/stand, and bring the pot to the table for serving.
