Answer:
It's a while since I got mine and I don't generally keep instructions, but I'm pretty sure they're included. It is a terrific device for making coffee, and there are videos on YouTube which show people using the machine. I looked at those rather than simply reading the instructions. If you buy, I hope you enjoy.

Answer:
Sure, but it's a lot of faff for one cup. Brew five (actually about 3.5 UK mugs) and just reheat in the microwave if you want another cup. Best brew in the universe IMHO.

Syphon works on physics of steam pressure in the bottom vessel forcing hot water through the filter and into the top vessel where it sits whilst there is a low flame under the bottom one. Having added ground coffee, stirred and waited for approx one minute, you extinguish the flame on the burner which causes the pressure in the lower vessel to turn into a vacuum which then sucks back the brewed coffee from the upper vessel. Syphon made coffee, made well, is fantastic. You need a butane burner (around £20.00) to control the heat on the bottom vessel accurately. see less

Answer:
You can't adjust the height. I bought a rekrow burner from coffee hit - it's the perfect height and works a treat. To update the previous answer, the system it comes with takes about 15 minutes and gives off barely enough heat to work when you add the coffee. The burner from coffee hit works in about 15 seconds

Answer:
Yes, a spirit (meths) burner is provided and is quite adequate. But you will get better results with a gas burner (uses lighter gas) because the flame can be controlled. You will find several suitable ones on the web, just make sure they fit inside the base of the syphon -- I had to take a rubber ring off mine.

Answer:
Sorry but I use paper filters. I find it easier. Also worth looking at metal filter.

Answer:
Only includes one filter. It is reuseable but will quickly become tainted. I would advise buying extra filters and changing them frequently.

Answer:
Certainly designed for coffee, and it does not take long to infuse - uses pressure to suck the water through the filter. You could ask the manufacturers, but I would doubt you could make a good cup of tea in it.

Answer:
No - unless you want to blacken the glass : but the flame is correct anyway
