Briki to Make Greek Coffee (c) Jim Stanfield

A briki used to make Greek coffee

(c) Jim Stanfield

The pot used for making Greek coffee is called a briki. It comes in 2, 4, and 6 demitasse cup sizes that help create the right amount of foam ... a very important part of the process. When making Greek coffee for more than 6 people, it's best to do it in stages, making more than one pot. A good substitute is the steaming pot with a handle that is used for frothing milk.

Pronunciation: BREE-kee
Also Known As: ibrik
The traditional briki is made out of copper or brass and lined with tin, but for everyday use, a stainless briki is most often used.
