|Additional Information||To begin making coffee with your Yama siphon use a slightly finer grind of coffee. Drop the washable, reusable cloth covered
filter into the infusion chamber with the chain hanging down into the glass siphon tube. Pull the chain down until you can hook
it to the bottom of the siphon tube. Fill the bottom carafe to the desired number of cups with hot water and place one measuring
spoon of coffee per cup in the 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 burns hotter than ethyl or methyl alcohols, but also burns orange and produces a lot of soot. This is available at hardware or outdoor stores.
It takes about 4 minutes to heat the water, all the water is siphoned to the top chamber and then allow 2 minutes to brew. Once you remove from the heat source, the coffee comes back down to the bottom carafe. Remove the top, placing it in its convertible lid/stand.
