J is for Jebena

Jebenas are clay kettles that coffee is boiled it. Usually hand made, they come in a range of sizes from capable of two teacups to fifty teacups, but the average sized used by families holds six cups.

Jebena bunna, that is, coffee, is considered superior to machine coffee because the taste is different though the price is usually the same. It is however easier to get a cup of jebena bunna because 1) when the power goes out the machine doesn't work but the characol stove jebenas sit on do 2) small stands that sell them are everywhere.

It's interesting that they're the same price. So the question is - how do the tastes compare to the coffee in the US? Did you have to adjust or is it about the same?

Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,

As a coffee nut, I would love to have a cup from a Jebena.
