Greek coffee

Served hot in tiny small cups. You have to wait for the dust to settle and you can only drink it to a certain point. Many foreigners drink the bottom part of the coffee as well, not knowing you are supposed to drink only the liquid part. Greek coffee has to be made the traditional way that most die-hard old men coffee shops (kafeneion) follow: boiled on hot sand. There is a long tradition in Greece of "reading" coffee cups and foretelling the future - a highly prized skill.
