The Italians’ favourite coffee has a summer version, with lots of ice and light foam. Luigi Bezzera from Milan was the inventer of the espresso machine and he is highly respected by fans of this type of coffee. Espresso Freddo is served in a medium glass with lots of ice (preferably crushed) and sugar if you want.
Today’s version of cappuccino was created in the 17th century when Venetian monks tried to dilute the classical Turkish coffee and added honey and milk to it. The coffee’s colour was reminiscent of that of the race of Capuchin monks and hence the name. The summer version of cappuccino is enriched with crushed ice and cold milk froth, creating a layer above the coffee. This is the biggest rival of frappe, but it is not as strong as frappe, since it is filtered.
Frappé coffee is a Greek foam-covered iced coffee drink made from instant coffee (generally, spray-dried Nescafe), water and sugar. Frappe is one of the most popular drinks in Greece and Cyprus, and is available at virtually all Greek cafés. The word frappé is French and comes from the verb frapper which means to ‘strike’; in this context, however, in French, when describing a drink, the word frappé means chilled, as with ice cubes in a shaker. The frappé has become a hallmark of post-war outdoor Greek coffee culture.
