If you are bringing home some Turkish coffee, why don’t you get a coffee pot as well? Turkish coffee can be brewed using your coffeemaker at home but the taste pales in comparison with the coffee brewed in a Turkish coffee pot.
The traditional Turkish coffee pots, locally called cezves, are made of copper. Turkey has a long tradition of copper pot-making and if you buy from local artisans, you are assured of high quality handmade copper pots.
In Istanbul, copper coffee pots are found at almost all of the bazaars that sell souvenirs. Check out Çadircilar Caddesi near the Grand Bazaar and watch Turkish coppersmiths do their work.
