Vacuum

Vacuum

We love vacuum brewing! It was a common method early in the 20th century, before paper coffee filters became widely popular. It takes a bit longer, but once you have tried it a couple times the process is fast and simple. And your incentive to use these devices will be clear: coffee with pronounced body and no sediment; very clean and crisp; a cup where flavors are dramatic and heightened in every respect. Delicate coffees like African coffees and Central Americans are especially suited for vacuum brewing. Is vacuum brewing for everyone? No. Vacuum brewing produces a very clean cup so some find it weak. One person's "clean" is another person's "weak"! If you like French Press brewing, the clarity of this cup might seem thin to you. It really is a matter of preference. We have more tips on brewing on this page. For more information, see our tip sheets for the Cona Vacuum Brewer and the Yama Vacuum Brewer. Also check out our Yama vacuum brewing pictorial.

  • Yama Tabletop 5 Cup Brewer with Stand and Lamp

    The Yama tabletop model works very well. It uses a cloth filter and produces a very clean cup. The stand doubles as the handle and can be a real pleasure to use. It's a lot more affordable in comparison to other models.

  • Yama Vacuum Brewer - Two Sizes

    The Yama Vacuum Brewer is a stovetop model from Japan that resembles the long-gone Silex and Cory glass models made in the U.S. for over 50 years. It is a utilitarian vacuum-syphon brewer that can stand up to daily use. It is available in 5 cup and 8 cup sizes. Like other vacuum brewers, the coffee brewed in this maker has great body, without the sediment you get in a French press. The 5 cup model is  makes is 20 oz.  The 8 cup makes 32 oz. The 5 cup model is fine for 2 people, 3 in a pinch, 4 if you are using "polite cups" and 5 in times of great duress. The 8 cup model has a more graceful aesthetic, with rounded glass parts.

  • Cona Vacuum Brewer - Two Sizes

    This is the king of vacuum coffee brewers. We are one of a handful of coffee sources that offers Cona Vacuum Brewers. These are beautiful, elegant, and a bit scientific-looking; aficionados of these believe it's the ultimate brewing method. I think the results are remarkable ...I have never brewed a bad cup on the Cona. They are used in a handful of fine inns, B&B's and restaurants.
