I told my mom about my interest in making my own Greek coffee and if she knew of a good store where I could go buy a new coffee cup set. Lo and behold, my mother whips out a cute little 12-piece set from a stuffed closet, and she even gives me a briki and a package of ground Greek coffee to boot! I’m all set! tomorrow I shall make my first ever Greek coffee. Metrio please! 2 years ago

I’ve been craving Greek coffee of late. I don’t know why, I always loathed the idea when I was younger, but I suppose that now that I have a more nuanced appreciation for the beverage in all its forms, I feel it’s time to get re-aquainted with my forefather’s beverage of choice. That and the fact that living so far away from home make me feel the need to reconnect with my roots. So, whenever I feel the urge to learn something new, my go-to resource has always been youtube. Yet again, the global internet video community did not fail. A nice Greek-American “yiayia” (grandma) who surprisingly looks a lot like my own mother, showed me the way. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWgC4DKEoHM

Next challenge: to actually find ground Greek coffee in this city, a briki and a Greek coffee set (there can be no compromise here!) to actually make some! 2 years ago
