Greeks adore coffee! They just adore it! Coffee time is a very important moment for socializing, almost a ritual, where you spend time with your loved ones and discuss your daily problems, exchange news or gossip! You may find people drinking coffee outside for two hours or just holding it in their hands and going about their jobs! Coffee drinking has been adjusted to the temperature of Greece; since the country is hot, the coffee is cold. Freddo cappuccino, freddo espresso, and frappé are all types of coffee you drink during the summer period.
During the winter period the Greeks drink Greek coffee (there is a controversy between Greeks and Turks about its origin), espresso, Nescafé, etc.
We strongly recommend that you try out Greek coffee culture and this is a great chance to practice your language skills. So order the coffee of your preference, show that you know what to order and impress everybody with your linguistic and cultural knowledge! Cheers!
