I bought this for my dad for father's day. He'd been drooling over it from the proper website but amazon actually got me a deal on it and prime, of course, on the shipping. Knockout combo.
This coffee machine is pretty awesome, actually, in the closest definition of that word. A show piece to watch it boil, ascend, and with the change of pressure, descend into very hot coffee. Seriously, not sure if it's the glass, but it comes out scorching. You have to wait. But it's a nice science lesson with a smooth and full bodied finish.
You need to buy alcohol fuel for it, not butane. Go to home depot (etc) or something but only ask the seasoned pro where it's at. The part timer will just say they don't sell it (and then you find it).

I have both the Hario NXA-5 and the Yama TCA-5D. I have to say that the Hario is just made so much better and believe it or not, actually makes a better cup of coffee!
