We have a large selection of Turkish coffee pots that are
made by experienced artisans in Turkey. All of our Turkish coffee makers are
made with copper and are 100% lead free.
Copper is the choice of the gourmet
professionals for cooking. It
is considered the finest practical conductor of heat. Its primary advantage is that it
requires only low to moderate heat to obtain the best results. This is why copper is the perfect
material to use for Turkish coffee pots called “cezve” (pronounced “ jezz-va”
). With little care, your coffee maker can
provide you with many years of service and pleasure.
We make our Turkish coffee
pots with thick 1.0 mm copper; twice as thick as others that look the same and
some of our pots are 2.0 mm in thickness.
Thick copper not only holds heat
longer for better cooking/brewing but is also more durable. Heat wears down copper and thinly made ones
will develop a whole and start to leak in a few months. In addition, pots that are made by unskillful
workers are prone to a leak from the side where handle is attached.
Each wood handle on our pots
are turned on a lathe and individually stained (color may vary) and attached to
our pots with a brass connectors to ensure leak free use for many years. We also make sure that handles do not wobble
and are securely attached.
Finally our pots, like all
copper cookware, are coated with tin inside which is a healthy metal that is
required by our bodies. However, tin is
not cheap and some manufacturers mix lead with it. We use only 100% lead free
tin inside our pots.
Each pot is individually
wrapped with cellophane to prevent oxidation before shipment so that it is
shiny as our pictures when you get it.
