Greek Coffee

Finely ground Greek coffee is available at Greek or Turkish specialty stores. Greeks typically like their coffee to be quite sweet, but feel free to adjust the sugar level to suit your taste. After the coffee is poured, the grounds settle to the bottom of each cup; they continue to release flavor but are not meant to be drunk. Prep and Cook Time: about 10 minutes.
