Hario 20-ounce Glass Vacuum Coffee Maker
The Hario TCA-5 Technica may look intimidating at first blush. But this 2-chambered coffee maker is no more difficult to use than a Bunsen burner. Heating the bottom bulb forces hot water up into the top chamber through a central coffee filter, where freshly-ground coffee is added. After a short brew period (around a minute) the heater is removed from the bottom bulb, forcing brewed coffee back down through the filter while keeping used coffee grounds in the top. This clever process produces hot, smooth coffee with a flavor similar to that from a French press, but with a bold, even taste that is consistent from the first sip to the last—all without any sludge.
Since the Hario TCA-5 requires no electricity it can be used anywhere an open flame is appropriate, from the home kitchen to the RV to the campsite. This vacuum coffee maker includes an alcohol burner heat source and is warrantied against defects through Hario of Japan. Click the Video tab below for a demonstration.

Don't like it Review by Atihcnoc
I saw this product and love how it looks, so different! I bought it and from the beginning it was so difficult to remove the top from the bottom, I make coffee with a lot of expectations, at the end fight a lot trying to remove top from bottom, use it just a few times get tired about the difficult of remove top from bottom ( it was to tight) at the end get frustrated and don't want to drink coffee. After 5 uses I decided to put it for sale! and bought a different one. (Posted on 1/26/15)
