Good Morning all! Hope you had a good night’s sleep.
It’s my favourite time of day where I look forward to trying out different types of coffee, and this morning a thought came to my mind, why don’t I try Greek Coffee for a change?
Im sure you’d also like to try something different instead of the same old same old!
What is Greek Coffee?
Greek Coffee is a strong drink mmmm… yes very strong! Frothy on top, that’s the way I like mine, the grounds settle at the bottom.
Why choose Greek Coffee?
Greek Coffee is prepared in a special way – it’s boiled in a briki and not filtered, so probably unlike coffee you’ve had in the past.
Greek coffee itself contains anti inflammatory and anti oxidant substances which can protect you from chronic heart and health diseases. It also has a smaller amount of caffeine than other types of coffee.
Coffee lovers with high blood pressure can drink it with no worries, while enjoying a lower risk of diabetes and blood clotting plus healthier blood vessels.
In fact, research shows that people who drink it enjoy healthy lives and live much longer.
Greek Coffee should be sipped and not gulped down as we do with ordinary coffee to reap the health benefits, which is a great excuse to gather your friends round for a longer coffee morning!
Since it’s so strong and rich, you’ll need a jug of cold water beside you so that all your mates could share. Don’t be tempted to add milk – it should be drunk plain.
Now lets make some Greek Coffee for two!
Pour the water into the pan, then add the coffee and sugar and stir well on high heat.
Once the coffee and sugar has dissolved completely stop stirring.
It takes a few minutes to boil and slowly rise and become frothy. Take the pan off the heat before it overflows.
Then fill your two cups with the top layer first which is the froth and then with the rest of the coffee.
Leave it for a few seconds until the grounds settle at the bottom and then sip your delicious coffee!
