Coffee in Greece: Greek Coffee, Freddo and Frappe – Greek Coffee Guide
In this episode, we will break down some of the key styles and phrases you need to know for ordering coffee in Greece. In Greece, coffee is not just a culture, but a lifestyle! There are four major types of Greek coffee to know. These four are Greek coffee, freddo cappuccino, frappe and freddo espresso. Earlier this year, we drank freddo cappuccino in our Greek Astoria video. Also, we wrote a piece about the place where we had freddo cappuccino, Coffee Pot. Now, we will take you to the motherland and drink coffee in Athens, Greece.
1: Mokka Specialty Coffee
Athina 105 51, Greece
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.
