Vintage Thursday Thingie: A Copper Finjan Coffee pot
This is a very old copper finjan. It is also called a cezve and in Greece its called a briki. .. whatever name is used, its a pot for making Turkish or Greek coffee. You simply boil together very finely ground coffee and water, often sugar is added too, then let the grounds settle a bit before pouring it into very small cups. It is quite strong! Once made over an open fire, the long handle helped the coffee maker not get burned. You can see that this little coffee pot must have made alot of coffee...if only it could talk what stories could it tell.
To see more vintage treasures, visit Suzanne at Coloradolady, our weekly hostess for VTT and take your cup of coffee with you!
