A cup of Turkish coffee, served from a copper cezve, in Turkey.

A cezve is a pot designed specifically to make Turkish coffee, the body and handle are traditionally made of brass or copper, occasionally also silver or gold. Though, recently, cezveler are also made from stainless steel, aluminium, or ceramics, the long handle is particularly useful to avoid burning one's hands, and the brim is designed to serve the coffee.


The name cezve is of Turkish origin, where it is a borrowing from Arabic: جذوة‎ (jadhwa).

Other regional variations of the word cezve are jezve, čezve, and xhezve. In Ukrainian and Russian, the word is spelled джезва (where it exists alongside турка, IPA: [ˈturkə]). In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, it is a long-necked coffee pot, spelled džezva.
