During my year in England back in 2008, I was ecstatic about meeting Greek people, given that I’m part Greek but had never met fellow “compatriots”. I did meet a lot and became friends with everyone. I also learnt a lot about the culture and related to some aspects and habits we have in my family. One of the very first things I learnt however, was how to make the perfect homemade Cafe Frappé. For coffee lovers, this is absolute heaven in the summer.

What you’ll need (for 1 person)

  • 1.5 tsp of instant coffee (you can also opt for decaf if it’s late in the afternoon)
  • 3/4 tsp sugar (optional, but recommended)
  • Milk
  • Water
  • Ice
  • Foaming whisk (can be found in any home electronics store)

How to make it

  1. In a large glass, place the coffee and sugar and pour cold water over them until just covered.
  2. Foam with the whisk until they constitute 1/3 of the glass.
  3. Fill the second third of the glass with milk and the third one with water.
  4. Add ice and a straw and you’re good to go!

Enjoy it the Greek way (i.e. really really slowly) 😉
