To find your Turkish coffee maker you will need to search for one under ibrik, briki, cezve, mbiki or toorka. Turkish coffee is not a to go kind of drink. It is meant to be enjoyed over time and conversation with lifelong friends. The coffee beans need to be very finely ground and then blended with the right amount of sugar and water to produce the desired effect.
There are two kinds of traditional ibriks available – copper tin lined and brass tin lined. The copper tin lined ibriks are more heat conductive but lose there shine more quickly and take more maintenance to keep looking new. The tin lining is for health reasons as heat can leach copper out of a pure copper pot and cause health problems. The brass tin lined ibriks look cosmetically better longer but heat more slowly. For home use a brass Turkish coffee maker is fine but for commercial use most coffee houses use the copper Turkish coffee maker instead.
Most Turkish coffee makers have long wooden or metal handles and the more expensive ibriks have decorative designs on the pot itself. Ibriks come in between two and eight cup sizes. Keep in mind that a normal Turkish cup of coffee is espresso sized or around three ounces. There are Turkish coffee mills you can purchase in brass that will grind your chosen beans to the desired extra fine ground.
