Greek Coffee Fri, 05/12/06 10:31 AM (permalink)
I'm thinking of having a Greek dinner party. So, I thought about after dinner drinks (Ouzo goes without saying) so I was wondering what Greek coffee should I buy?

I've only had greek coffee at the multitutde of greek fests I've been too, but never actually bought greek coffee grounds.

Any suggestions?

also, should I make it using a percolator, french press, or can I use my regular coffee maker?

      That explains the process well. I guess I need a briki.

      Thanks Sundancer

        Very interesting, and what I was expecting. Sounds very similar to the Turkish coffee a Romanian woman who once worked for me would make after a meal. But I'm cautious to suggest that anything Greek might be the same as something Turkish.

          That's okay, Ashphalt, much as my late grandmother would have been loath to admit it, they're really the same thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_coffee

            The food has many similarities too. Ilove Greek food and rarely miss a Greek Fest in DC (there's 4 of these per year in the city, yet alone the suburbs), but given the choice, I go to Cafe Divan in Georgetown, which is Turkish food, rather than my usual Greek restaurant.
