A cezve (also known as ibrik) is a pot designed specifically to make a particular style of coffee that is vastly consumed in parts of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The body can be made of metal, brass, copper, or ceramic but it features a distinctive long handle, and a brim that is designed to serve the coffee.
This event showcases the Cezve or Ibrik preparation of brewing coffee, set in a competition format that celebrates the cultural tradition. In this championship it is encouraged that the competitors bring their own style/cultural element to their performance to showcase what is one of the oldest forms of preparing coffee.
The 2015 World Cezve/Ibrik Championships will be held on 6 February 2015 at the Horeca Exhibition in Athens, Greece. SCAE are delighted to announce Loumidis Papagalos as the official partner of the World Cezve/Ibrik Championship 2015.
