Produces a large amount of 'turkish' style coffee. (1 standard sized mug). Looks significantly different from the more 'traditional' Turkish cezva, giving my coffee collection a much more varied look.
Negative Product Points
The learning curve is rather steep, and can result in many a failed cup.
Many people have talked about the ibrik, or the Turkish cezva, which is why I've decided to speak specifically about the Slovenian dzezva (which is really adapted from the Croatian dzezva, which itself is adapted from Bosnia and the Turks). It's design is rather different, in that it doesn't have the familiar volcano shape. Instead, the shape is that of an hour-glass, wide top and bottom, which is indented in the middle. The shape provides enough of a funnel action to cause the foam to build, like the Bosnian and Turkish dzezve, but is easier to clean.
The coffee that comes out of a Slovenian dzezva is the same wonderfully full bodied coffee that people often simply lump into the category of Turkish coffee, but it has it's own uniquenesses. The foam that is created in the Slovene dzezva isn't as thick and frothy as the Turkish counter-part.
People often describe Turkish (and subsequently Slovene) coffee as being strong. I prefer to describe it as being thick. It fills my mouth more than a cup of joe from a press pot, even though I feel that the strength of flavor is similar.
One of the amazing things about Slovenia is that it sits in the middle of two significantly different coffee cultures: the Ottoman Empire from the south, and the Roman Empire from the west. It is very difficult to find significantly bad coffee in Ljubljana (the capitol of Slovenia). The espresso is always good, as is the 'Turkish Coffee' (some people will put this on the menu, only to denote that it has cardamom in it, and comes in a cezva, and for the tourists. Bosnians, however, ALWAYS write 'Bosnian Coffee' on their menus. Coffee is a point of national pride in these souther European countries).
If you've ever dealt with Slovene shop attendants, you'd understand.
