Greek Coffee is made using a few different methods. The listing above is for the metrios method.

In this method one heaping teaspoon (approx. 5 grams) of finely ground Greek coffee is added to a briki pot, along with 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/4 cup (60mls) of water. The mixture is heated until foam rises to the top, just before it boils. The coffee is then poured into a cup and served.

The caffeine content of Greek coffee can vary between 40-60mg due to a number of factors, so the amount above reflects what one could expect to find on average. Another version of Greek coffee (vary glykos) uses 2 heaping teaspoons of coffee and would have double the caffeine content of metros.

Greeks also drink a coffee called sweet boiled coffee, which is boiled three times. This is called glykivrastos. This version would have a slightly higher caffeine content since most of the caffeine would be extracted from the ground coffee. It would range between 60-80mg of caffeine per serving.
