The article omits one major reason why young adults are increasingly preferring espresso to Greek coffee: you can't make a true Greek (or Turkish) coffee without sugar; and it could be that more and more people (especially those fashion-conscious folks who want to stay slim) are shunning sugar. Whereas espresso is traditionally drunk sweetened, it is also fine on its own; but old-school Greek or Turkish coffee relies on sugar to keep the coffee granules in suspension. In fact, without sugar it's difficult to achieve the froth that hosts bestow on their most honored guests before pouring for the rest.
