Directions:
Some simple steps to making the perfect cup of Greek coffee:

First, measure the required cups of water into the briki (traditional Greek coffee pot). The measure should be one of the cups (demitasse) that the coffee is going to be served in. Greek coffee can be made in three different ways, sketos (without sugar, strong and bitter), metrios (medium, usually with one teaspoonful of sugar), and glykos (sweet). Depending on you preference, measure and add into the briki the coffee, a teaspoonful of coffee per cup, and the sugar. For a medium coffee the best balance is to add the same amount of sugar as coffee. Put the briki on a low heat and slowly stir its contents until the coffee is diluted in the water. Hold the briki by the handle at all times (so as not to spill). Watch it start to rise with a bubbly foam until it reaches the top of the briki and then immediately withdraw it from the heat. Once the coffee has been made, let it sit for one minute to allow the coffee grounds to settle at the bottom of the briki. Pour a little in each cup while distributing the froth evenly. Then proceed and fill the rest of the cups.Greek coffee is never stirred once it has been made and served. It is usually served with a cold glass of water.
