Also known as press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger, cafetiere, the French Press is a simple coffee brewing device that was said to be first patented by Italian designer Attilio Calimani in 1929. Coffee is brewed in a French Press by mixing the grounds and hot water directly in the pot. The plunger is pressed down slowly and the coffee is then poured directly from the press pot into a cup.
The Moka pot, also known as a macchinetta del caffè (literally 'small coffee machine') or 'Italian coffee pot', is a stove top coffee maker which produces coffee by passing hot water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. The flavours of Moka and espresso machine brews are very close. However, the stovetop stuff is richer, less acidic, and almost chocolaty.
Also called a Cezve, this simple ladle is used to make strong, thick brew, known widely as Turkish coffee. The body and handle is traditionally made of brass or copper. The long handle is particularly useful to avoid burning one's hands, and the brim is designed to serve the coffee. There's a Turkish saying that coffee should be "black as hell, strong as death, and sweet as love." For a well-brewed Ibrik cup, that proverb sums it up.
In South India, coffee is brewed with a metal device that resembles two cylindrical cups. The upper cup is loaded with fresh ground coffee mixed with chicory. The grounds are gently compressed and boiling water is poured inside. Next, the lid is placed on the top, and the device is left to slowly drip the brewed coffee into the bottom. This brew is generally stronger than western "drip style" coffee.
