Greek Coffee

Serve Greek coffee with koulouraki or sweets. A briki is a special one-handled pot used for making Greek coffees. It comes in various sizes and can be found in Greek or Middle Eastern shops. The grounds will remain at the bottom of the cup. Sip only until you detect a bit of the grounds.

Serves: 1


  • Cold water
  • 1 Tbsp. Greek coffee
  • 1⁄2 tsp. sugar


  • Using a demitasse cup, measure the amount of cold water needed to make a serving of coffee. Put the water, coffee, and sugar in a briki.
  • Place the briki over a medium heat. Swirl the briki until the coffee and sugar dissolve. As soon as the coffee foams, remove from heat and pour into the demitasse.
  • Before drinking the coffee, allow the grounds to settle to the bottom of the cup; it will take about 1 minute.
