Too lazy to post them all here, but here's a link to the gallery:

Cool. Good to see you are enjoying a brew from Hario (if I'm guessing right). I brew one every other day when I'm not too lazy to bring the kit out. Get one for the shop :-)

It's a yama syphon brewer. Fun!

At first, I though the first picture showed them cooking the gibbon brain that is on your plate in the second picture.:bigeek::biggrin:

I have the exact same Yama. It makes terrific coffee. Some day maybe I'll find a nice Cory (even better, and much easier to clean), but for now this is fine for my occasional non-espresso urges.

looks like a fun evening. :-)

The cory is much better made syphon, but they both opperate on the same principles. What is your current yama procedure?

As I'm known to have a bad habit of steering threads off-topic, I'll post it in the coffee thread. ;)

please, by all means use this thread for whatever... if coffee is the subject, i'm interested

im sorry, by cory I meant cona. Jon you're lucky to live in LA with so much great food and greay coffee.

Just went through the whole gallery, Jon. Wow!

The menu looks great. Care to tell us what we're looking at?

Also, did you find out what kind of heating elements those are? Wicked. That would be even better than butane (assuming they aren't some elaborate halogen setup built into the counter top).

im sorry, by cory I meant cona. Jon you're lucky to live in LA with so much great food and greay coffee.They are kind of interchangeable; Corys are antiques, made in Chicago and still available on eBay, while Conas are made in the UK and still available, sold through Sweet Marias among others. Hario is another easily-available brewer.

While looking around for parts for my Yama, I found this page... Holee carp! http://www.flickr.com/photos/hvbean/sets/72157623026422496/detail/

there was a lot of stuff... too much to list/remember right now

The heating elements were indeed halogen setups built into the counter ;)

LOL! Oh, well.
