Greek Coffee

Greek coffee is a traditional and cherished beverage in Greece, known for its rich, robust flavor and unique brewing method. Made from finely ground coffee beans, it is prepared in a special pot called a briki, where the coffee is simmered with water and sugar (if desired) until it reaches a frothy consistency. Served unfiltered in a small cup, Greek coffee has a thick layer of grounds at the bottom, which is typically not consumed. This method of brewing enhances the coffee’s aromatic and intense profile, making it a key part of Greek social culture and daily life. Greek coffee is often enjoyed slowly, accompanied by conversation and a sense of community, reflecting the leisurely pace of Greek tradition.
