Each unique copper
piece is hand hammered into a shape by experienced artisans in Turkey. 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. You'll have a
conversation piece for sure, as you sip your coffee with friends and
family. They are tin lined inside for durability and ease of
Copper, more than
any other metal, is known for its ability to diffuse heat evenly and conduct it
quickly throughout its surface. Hence, it is used all over the world as
high-efficiency conductors of heat and are especially coveted for their ability
to quickly bring water to a boil (there are some cezve/ibriks that are made of
brass but these don't heat as well and in fact some of our pots have brass
handles to keep them cool to touch). They are easy to care for, needing
only an occasional cleaning with a soft, damp cloth. Also, they tend to
look better and gain more character as they age...just like people!
MEHMET EFENDI TURKISH COFFEE (8.81 OZ)
Manufacturing coffee is an art. From purchasing to roasting and
grinding to packaging, every stage of the process calls for a variety
of skills and expertise as well as great attention to detail. It takes a perfectionist to choose the
coffee beans, a good ear to hear the songs sung by the beans as they
roast, and meticulous attention care to grind the coffee correctly. As
with any artist, coffee producers are not made but born. The secrets of
producing coffee are passed on from father to son, from master to
apprentice. Special formulas that are the result of many years of experience are passed on from generation to generation.
Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi has been roasting coffee since 1871. Today, it is the biggest and the oldest coffee company
in Turkey. They use the latest fully automated filling and sealing
machines to package coffee in specially designed cans that preserve the
coffee's freshness up to its expiry date, keeping it as fresh as the day it was ground.
