Bottom Line: It's a Turkish coffee pot. For Turkish coffee.
Positive Product Points

Easy to use, robust design, classic Turkish looks, makes very good strong coffee. Ideal for campfires as it doesn't need electricity.

Negative Product Points

Benefits from using a very, very fine grind. Handle can get very hot. Tends to boil over if unwatched. Not particularly fast to use.

Detailed Commentary

This is a "10 cup" ibrik, which is the largest size I've seen. It's made from brass and is tinned inside. The handle, which could do with being a little longer, is securely riveted onto the body. There is no perceptible metallic taste from the materials. It's the classic "volcano" shape and looks like it will last for years. I use it when I'm out camping as it's ideal for use on open flame. It's very easy to make good coffee with this, providing that thick, sweet and slightly gritty Turkish coffee is to your taste. Repeated boiling takes time and this is not a product for those who like "no mess, no fuss" coffee.

Buying Experience

Bought in a small coffee store in Cherbourg for about 100FF ($15).
