It is one of those amazing pieces that will never fail to impress and that will also make a nice gift for yourself or an antique lover. The vintage vacuum coffee maker is in good condition. There are no dents, cracks or other damages, just a couple of signs of age. However, the bunsen burner is missing.

A vacuum coffee maker brews coffee in two chambers in which steam pressure and gravity produce coffee. This type of coffee maker is also known as a syphon coffee maker and was invented by Loeff of Berlin in the 1830s. These coffee makers have been used in many parts of the world for more than a century. The chamber material is borosilicate glass, metal, or plastic, and the filter can be either a glass rod or screen made of metal, cloth, paper, or nylon.

How it works:

You put hot or cold water in the lower compartment and ground coffee in the upper compartment. When the heat is applied to the lower bowl, the water rises up a central stem and mixes with the ground coffee. When the heat is removed and the pressure in the lower bowl drops, the hot water is drawn back into the lower bowl through a filter.  You will then serve the coffee from the lower chamber.


Diameter (upper compartment): 8,5 cm
Diameter (lower compartment): 8 cm
Height: 33,5 cm
