Pour Over and Immersion Brewing Combined through using the Yama Glass Silverton Brewer

We weren’t introduced to this tool until 2023 and it has quickly become our daily coffee maker ever since. Precision and style meet with the Yama Glass Silverton Brewer – a brewing device that seamlessly blends the elegance of pour over with the efficiency of immersion brewing. In this tutorial, we'll explore how to use the Yama Glass Silverton Brewer and uncover why it stands out as a forgiving and consistent choice for both beginners and seasoned coffee enthusiasts.


Step 1: Familiarize Yourself with the Silverton Brewer

The Yama Glass Silverton Brewer boasts a stunning design with hand-blown glass and brass accents. Its unique construction incorporates elements of both pour over and immersion brewing, offering a versatile and user-friendly coffee-making experience.


Step 2: Gather Your Tools

For the Yama Glass Silverton Brewer, you'll need coarsely ground Namesake Coffee beans, hot water (just off boiling), and a pouring kettle. The Silverton Brewer comes with a built-in stainless steel filter, eliminating the need for disposable paper filters unless you want to add a second filter layer with one to remove even more of the coffee oils.


Step 3: Add Coffee Grounds

Place the Silverton Brewer on your preferred brewing vessel. Measure your coffee grounds based on your taste preferences and desired strength. We suggest a 1:15 coffee to water ratio. Add the grounds to the stainless steel filter, ensuring an even distribution.


Step 4: Begin the Pour

Start by pouring a small amount of hot water over the coffee grounds to allow them to bloom. This step primes the coffee for extraction and enhances the flavor profile.


Step 5: Immersion Brewing

Continue pouring the hot water over the grounds, ensuring that they are fully immersed in the water. The Silverton Brewer's design promotes immersion brewing, allowing the coffee grounds to steep and extract flavors consistently. We suggest brewing for 4 minutes.


Step 6: Drain and Serve

Once the brewing process is complete, turn the knob to drain the coffee. This method will leave you with a rich and flavorful coffee without the heaviness associated with oils.
