Coffee Lingo: Cezve


Cezve: (n.) it’s like a jacuzzi tub for coffee.

A cezve is a small (usually) copper pot that is designed specifically to make Turkish coffee. When brewing Turkish coffee, the cezve is placed over heat and coffee grounds and water are brought to a lightly bubbling boil. The cezve is moved off the heat, then sometimes brought to a boil a second and third time. Coffee prepared like this gets a nice, hot bubble bath and you get a strong, dark brew.

  1. I’ve used a cezve for years to foam the milk after I pull the espresso on my Rancilio Sylyia–works very well, nice thick foam!


  2. could someone give me instructions on how to brew Turkish coffee correctly? I would greatly appreciate it. I have purchased the cezve and coffee from your website. Thank you, Jon


  3. Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips?
    Thanks a lot!
