This frothy delight is a great summer treat when the summer heat makes hot coffee less appealing.

Why not make the sugar optional? Some people don't like their coffee sweet. Same goes for milk Read More

Add ice cubes according to how long you wnat to sip it! Frappe is a foam covered iced coffee drink usually made with spray-dried instant coffee and evap milk. Its invention dates back to the 1957 International Trade Fair in Thessaloniki. A representative of the Nestle company Yannis Dritsas was exhibiting a new product for children a chocolate beverage produced instantly by mixing it with milk and shaking it in a shaker. Dritsas' employee Dimitris Vakondios was looking for a way to have his usual instant coffee during his break but he could not find any hot water so he mixed the coffee with cold water in a shaker. This improvised drink has been called the national coffee of Greece and is available at virtually all Greek cafes. Pros: neat-looking presentation Cons: I prefer espresso as the base Read More

This coffee drink is better if you put coffee sugar and just a little bit of water (1/4 cup) in the shaker and shake well. Pour the coffee into a tall glass and then add ice more water and milk. The coffee will be foamy and light just the way Greeks like it! Read More

So Good These are served in Greek cafes all over NYC Astoria and in Greece. They are so good. I've never liked instant coffee and always thought frappes (pronounced frappay) like this were made with a fine espresso because they taste so good. Can't believe how simple the ingredients are. I always use a blender at home and that helps but it never comes out as good as it does in the cafes. Pros: Light Frothy Delicious Cons: Greek Cafe's make it better than I can at home Read More

This was ok but but i prefer to add sweetened condensed milk instead of regular milk and sugar oh and cut the amount down to a tablespoon. To the idiot who asked why can't the sugar be optional: there is no law saying that you must follow every recipe in its entirety without question. It's called thinking for yourself you should try it sometime or not. Read More
