The Greeks call it an Ibrik; the Arabs call it a cezve. Ours are made of brass, tinned inside, and have a wooden handle. You might see others made of copper or stainless steel and they vary in style. We will send with your order directions for making Turkish coffee and our favorite cafe recipes for making dessert Turkish coffees like Africa, Kilimanjaro, and Zebra.
This ibrik works beautifully for making Greek coffee. I never need more than a cup, so this is the perfect size (though I can actually get 2 cups out of it). Came with instructions on how to make Greek coffee too, as well as a little bit of the history behind it. The fact that it's brass means it's durable and doesn't tarnish easily. It takes longer to heat up than a stainless or copper one would, but with Greek coffee heating slower makes for a better cup. Functional and pleasant to look at as well. The wooden handle keeps you from burning yourself (some ibriks do have metal handles). I'd definitely buy from Natasha's Cafe again.
