Frappe is a famous Greek iced coffee drink. Stirred coffee and sugar becomes a nice foam to which cold water and ice (and milk if wanted) is adjusted. Especially in the summer with hot temperatures frappe is the most famous coffee in Greece.
Unfortunately, this coffee costs from three until five euros in cafes and bars and a take-out coffee 1 until 2 euros. Quit expensive for an average Greek.
Yes, the crisis limits lots of things. Yes, people experience one of the most difficult periods of their life, but what a relief to see lots of them still order their frappe in cafes and bars. What a joy to see people buy (although less) their frappe or make their iced coffee at home and take their children to the beach or a park to enjoy it. Greeks feel only really sorry that their favorite coffee is that expensive. They are sure that it is overrated. Not because it is not worth it, but because it is impossible that 2 spoons of coffee with a little bit of milk and the necessary sugar costs that much. They understand cafe and bar owners have to pay high rents and lots of other expenses, but three until five euros is too much.
Though, frappe is the favorite coffee of the Greeks. The nicest thing to begin a working day with!
