Greek Coffee

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.
