If you want a truly delicious way to have your coffee, try the Turkish method.
Positive Product Points
Each unique copper piece is hand hammered into a shape by experienced artisans in Anatolia. They are carefully etched with elaborate designs, then polished and hand painted one by one with decorative bright colors! They look like pieces of art but made for everyday use. They are tin lined inside.
Negative Product Points
They look too pretty to use it for everyday!
Most people in the world have heard of "Turkish Coffee" but few have ever tasted it. Yet it's the oldest, the easiest (with little practice) and the most economical way (you don't need to use as much grounds) to make a cup of coffee! But above all, it is simply the most delicious way to have your coffee!
Unlike other forms of coffee making where usually hot water or steam is forced through the ground beans, in the Turkish brewing method you drink the coffee without any filtering! How is that possible? It‘s because the coffee beans are ground into a fine powder! So in essence, the grounds dissolve in the water while you are making it (although some of the sediments will be left at the bottom of your cup, but that's for fortune telling!). It's like making a hot chocolate but with caffeine!
Contrary to what most people might think, it is not really a "strong" coffee when drank in small demitasse cups. It is wonderful to have it after a dinner and if you make it sweet enough, it might even serve as your desert with a slight kick! Also, the flavor stays in your mouth longer than any other kind of coffee so you get to enjoy the taste for a little while! Try it.
Drinking Turkish coffee is really all about relaxing and experiencing the pleasures. In the Middle East and the Balkans, it is called "keif" which means exactly that!
Great products and fast shipping.

Quality of the decorated pots remain excellent. Colors did not fade at all and look as bright as it did when new.
