How to Make Authentic Greek Coffee

What You’ll Need

Greek coffee

Sugar (optional)

A briki (μπρίκι, pronounced BREE-kee)

Demitasse cups

Cold water

Water glasses

The pot used for making Greek coffee is called a briki. It comes in 2-, 4- and 6-demitasse cup sizes to create just the right amount of foam—a very important part of the process. If you plan to make coffee for more than six people, making several potfuls in stages is recommended.

Start with very cold water. Use the demitasse cup to measure the water needed for each cup of coffee (one demitasse cup of water is about 1/4 cup). Pour the water into the briki.
