Crete: 'Ellinikos Kafe'

Greek coffee, known as Ellinikos Kafe, is boiled in a briki, a tall metal container usually made from copper or stainless steel. Similar to Turkish techniques, the brew is often sweetened, and it can be served plain (sketo), medium sweet (metrio) or sweet (glyko). The grounds are always served in the cup and left to settle, so be careful toward the end of the drink!
