Get Him to Speak Greek

I have a sweet spot for Ελληνικός καφές - Greek coffee (which used to be called Turkish coffee until the Turkish invasion of Cyprus; the Greeks don’t like them very much any more). Is made by warming water (and sugar, if you prefer) with very fine powdered coffee grains (made by pulverising coffee beans) in a container called a μπρίκι (“briki”)~ until the coffee is just about to boil then pouring it all into an espresso sized cup, where the powder sinks to the bottom (you don’t drink the dregs!). You would serve it with a glass of iced water to wash it down with.
The Greeks also make a great frappé coffee~ most places!
