The world’s first coffee pot
A cezve (also known as ibrik or briki) is essentially a pot designed specifically to make a particular style of coffee that is vastly consumed in parts of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. It made its appearance in the late 16th century. It is made of metal, brass copper or is sometimes ceramic. It traditionally has a distinctive long handle and a brim for ease of serving the coffee straight out of it.
Although the process is simple it requires time and patience. It also requires a very specific grinder made out of stones. This is because this method involves adding the water, the sugar (if needed) and the very fine ground coffee in the same pot. The result, is an intense thick coffee with the sediment sitting at the bottom.
