Cafe Frappe and Greek Mocha!
  • Greek mocha came through the Turks to Greece in the 17th century – so it has a long tradition.
  • But anyone who has been to Greece knows that Cafe Frappe is the drink #1.
  • You have to thank Dimitrios Vakondios, a former Nestlé employee.
  • At the autumn fair in Thessaloniki in 1957, Nestlé introduced a new product for children: cocoa, made with milk in a shaker.
  • In a pause, Dimitrios wanted to drink coffee, but found no hot water, and so came up with the idea of ​​using the shaker to make his coffee cold.
  • He took instant coffee, sugar and water, shook everything, and came out the first Cafe Frappe in history.

Greek CoffeeΕλληνικός καφές
  • It is prepared in a Briki – similar to Turkish Cezve.
  • Fill water for the desired number of cups into the Briki.
  • For each cup, add 1 heaped tsp powdered Mocha coffee powder.
  • Add sugar and mix well – it is 2 tsp – γλυκός (glykos, sweet) 1 tsp – μέτριος (metrios, medium) and without sugar – σκέτος (sketos, pure)
  • Place the Briki on the stove over medium heat and wait for the coffee to boil.
  • It is particularly good when you have it 3-4 times boiled up.
  • Remove from heat and evenly spread over all cups.

  • Fill a cold mouthful of cold mineral water into the glass.
  • Flare with the blender: a good 5 cm high, fine, caramel-colored foam is the goal.
  • Add 4-6 ice cubes, then add fat-reduced milk as desired
  • Fill the glass carefully with cold, still mineral water to avoid damaging the foam.
  • Drink with straw.

    • Frappedara: a large frappe or stronger frappe with one or two extra spoons of coffee powder.
