Greek Frappe Coffee - Iced Instant Coffee
Nektar is a small family business from Faliro in Athens with a true passion for high quality coffee that goes back to 1950s. Staying true to their values by keeping their tradition of making freshly grounded and authentic Greek coffees based on old recipes for many generations now.
Frappé coffee powder or Greek frappé (and for many known as Dalgona, the latest trend from Korea) is a foam-covered iced coffee drink made from instant coffee (generally spray-dried), sugar, ice cubes and water. Frappe is the national summer drink in Greece... This is coffee as Greek as it gets!
The instant coffee powder (spray-dried filter coffee) contains tiny particles (coffee solids), some molecules responsible for flavour & taste and caffeine. When dissolved, it forms a simpler & more stable colloid relative to fresh-brewed coffee. This enables the creation of the characteristic thick frothy layer at the top of the coffee. This layer appears similar to crema, the foam found in espresso, but is much thicker & the composition is different. It can be characterised mainly as a three-phase colloid where tiny bubbles are held together by the coffee solids.
How to make a Greek frappe coffee:
It can be made with or without milk and in 3 degrees of sweetness, determined by the amount of sugar used. These are:
- "Sweet" (Glykós in Greek) with 2 teaspoons of coffee & 4 teaspoons of sugar
- "Medium" (Métrios in Greek) with 2 teaspoons of coffee & 2 teaspoons of sugar
- "Plain" (Skétos in Greek) with 2 teaspoons of coffee & no sugar.
Add the ingredients with 50ml of water in a glass or shaker and mix with blender or shake for a few minutes until a thick foam consistency has been achieved. Finally add the ice cubes and some milk if you wish. Drink with a straw and Enjoy!
