At Mokka, we ordered the traditional Greek coffee. Similar to Turkish coffee, Greek coffee is unfiltered and leaved a sediment at the bottom that you don’t drink. Here, it is heated over a hot surface covered in sand. The coffee is heated in the briki until the foam rises. After the foam rises to the top, it is taken out of the sand and ready to pour into a cup. Also, we ordered a freddo cappuccino to go with the Greek coffee.

Coffee Island is a popular coffee chain that started in Greece. Here, we ordered two coffees for takeaway – frappe and freddo espresso. Interestingly, frappe was invented by accident. It is a popular iced coffee in Greece that uses a special type of instant Nescafe coffee. An employee of Nestle in Greece didn’t have hot water for his instant Nescafe. Instead, he resorted to using cold water and ice cubes. Thankfully, this accident created the iconic Greek frappe!
