Greek Coffee

    "Greeks typically like their coffee to be quite sweet" <- this statement is actually incorrect. While sweetness depends on many factors, such as family's origins and the region's traditions, the usual ratio is 1/2 tsp sugar for 1 tsp coffee. This recipe is extremely sweet, even by Greek standards

    I agree with the previous comment and to be honest there is no rule on how sweet the Greeks like their coffee. I don't prefer it sweet at all but my grandfather for example was putting double the sugar this article describes. I have also written an article on how to prepare a greek coffee here: http://www.deligrecious.com/en/blog/36-organic/79-greek-coffee-how-to-prepare-one I would appreciate your opinion.
