Most of us can’t start the day without a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee; it has become an essential ingredient in our daily lives. If you’re a coffee enthusiast and have spent any time in Greece, chances are you’ve experienced the joy of sipping a traditional “Greek Coffee” after a delicious meal. Deeply infused in Greek history, culture and ritual, Greek Coffee is intended to be savored slowly. Following the regional tradition of strong unfiltered coffee in the Mediterranean, Middle East and the Balkans, Bravo Coffee is made with exclusively Greek coffee. We roast our beans and then finely grind them to a powder-like consistency, yielding a coffee with a bright, bold flavor. Unlike American filtered drip coffee or Italian Espresso, you’ll need a small narrow necked coffee pot called a “Briki” to make Bravo Coffee. The preparation involves gently boiling the coffee with cold water – adding sugar and ground cardamom or cardamom pods, if wanted – until it comes to a foam. The foam is an essential part of this special brew, as are the coffee grinds that should sink the bottom of the demitasse-sized cup before drinking. Never stir before drinking and never add milk. Wait a couple of minutes and then enjoy the wonderful taste of Greece with family and friends.
