Tanaka is an Arabic name for the long-handled, narrow-necked, wide-bottom coffeepot used in Greece and Turkey where it is called an ibrik. Pulverized coffee, sugar, and water are added, allowed to bubble and boil up the desired number of times then poured ceremoniously into tiny demitasse cups. The exact amount of sugar, water, and coffee, as well as the type, and the number of times it is allowed to foam up produces an incredible number of variations. Sometimes spices are added.
