Tradition and passion merge in the three varieties of Greek coffee that you can find with us: Dark, medium or light roast, they are produced from strong but refined blends, so as to cover every taste.
Greek coffee is made exclusively from “Arabica” beans, so it is considered to have a milder, sweeter taste than other types of coffee beans.
However, there are variations in the roasting process that can produce different flavors and aromas in coffee.
Here are some examples of Greek coffee roasting variations:
Medium Roast: Medium roasting is the most common and traditional way of roasting Greek coffee.
The beans are roasted until they take on a light brown color and give a balanced flavor with moderate acidity.
Light Roast: A light roast produces a milder flavor with a higher level of acidity.
The beans are baked for a shorter time and are lighter in color.
Dark Roast: A dark roast produces a stronger, bolder flavor with a lower level of acidity.
The beans are roasted for a longer time and have a darker color.
Please note that these are examples of Greek coffee roasting variations and there are many other ways to adapt this roasting process to produce different flavors and aromas in the coffee.
Pour cold water into a briki coffee pot and let it boil over medium heat.
Once the water is hot, add the coffee and sugar (if using) and stir gently.
Lower the heat and let the coffee boil.
Do not stir the coffee all the time after adding it to the water.
As the coffee begins to boil, a foam will appear on top.
As soon as the foam starts to rise, remove the briki coffee pot from the heat.
Let the coffee sit for a minute before pouring into small cups.
Greek coffee is traditionally served with a glass of cold water on the side, which is said to help cleanse the palate and enhance the flavor of the coffee.
It is often served with a sweet, such as a traditional Greek lucum, baklava or kataifi.
It is also important to note that Greek coffee should be consumed slowly as it is unfiltered and the grounds will settle to the bottom of the cup.
