As I prepare to get out of here - I am doing the last minute scramble to
get "stuff" from the Bazzar/Hajji shop over on the big side of base
Right out the door of the BIG px, there is a stand with some vendors
from Turkey, lots of brass, copper, silver etc... Picked up a nice tea
pot for my wife and asked about an Ibrik that I had seen a week or two
ago... When I asked about an Ibrik he pointed to a tall slender coffee
pot looking item, graceful curves, bigger on the bottom with a very
prominent handle and defined spout, made from what appeared to be pewter
or some other dull silver metal.
When I asked about the pot with the long handle, he corrected me and
stated they were called jeswe/jeswa - he dug one out. They look like
what SM has listed as an Ibrik...not as nice, hammered copper finish
with a "pot metal" type handle...
They also have a brass grinder, different sizes, shapes etc...pretty
rough, but neat from the war fighter tourist perspective and a bargain
at $19.00...might pick one up just to put up on the shelf.
Anyone ever heard of a Jeswe/Jeswa for making Turkish Coffee...gotta
believe these guys know what they are talking about, they are straight
10 and a wakeup.
