Dr Oz Boiled Greek Coffee Directions:
- Bring the coffee and water to a boil and wait for the foam to appear, about two to three minutes after the boiling has begun.The more bubbles there are after the boiling, the richer the coffee will taste.
Lolis recommended pouring the coffee into a small cup and allowing the ground to settle on the bottom before taking a sip. She also suggested preparing your Greek coffee in a Briki. If you don’t have one, she said a small pot would work just as well.

Interesting article. I am expert on this topic but I am very happy to find Chris Kilham’s views on Greek coffee benefits. Some minor mistakes in the Greek coffee preparation though. “Boil” is a no-no word for any kind of coffee.
