Traditional Greek Coffee Loumidis Papagalos 96g

Description

Papagalos Loumidis is a well-known brand of Greek coffee that has become synonymous with this traditional beverage. It has a rich history, dating back to its inception 100 years ago in 1920. The name “Papagalos” means “parrot” in Greek, and this coffee brand has certainly left a lasting impression.

Here are some key points about Loumidis Papagalos:

  1. Origin: The brand hails from Athens, Greece.
  2. Product: It specializes in Greek coffee, which is a finely ground coffee prepared using a traditional method.
  3. Flavor: Loumidis Papagalos offers a classic roast with a mellow flavor and hints of chocolate.
  4. Aroma: Expect a strong and delightful aroma when brewing this coffee.
  5. Cultural Significance: Loumidis Papagalos has been a part of Greek coffee culture for generations.

Whether you’re sipping it in a cozy café or enjoying it at home, Loumidis Papagalos brings the essence of Greece to your cup.

Greek coffee, also known as Ellinikós kafes, is a delightful brew with a rich history. It shares similarities with Turkish coffee, as both are made on a stovetop using unfiltered coffee grounds. Here’s how to prepare it traditionally:

  1. Ingredients:

    • 2 ounces (59 ml) water
    • 1 heaping teaspoon (2 g) Greek coffee (finely ground)
    • ½ to 2 teaspoons (2.5 to 10 g) sugar (adjust to taste)
  2. Choosing the Right Equipment:

    • Use Greek coffee beans. Arabica beans are lightly roasted and ground to a fine powder. Brands like Loumidis and Bravo are popular.
    • Use a briki, a special metal coffee pot traditionally used for Greek coffee. It’s an hourglass- or cauldron-shaped pot with a long handle. Warm it over a gas stove or open flame.
  3. Brewing the Coffee:

    • Measure the water using a demitasse cup (the same cup you’ll serve the coffee in). Pour the water into the briki.
    • Add 1 heaping teaspoon of Greek coffee grounds per cup. Unlike Turkish coffee, Greek coffee doesn’t include spices like cardamom.
    • Optionally, add sugar to taste.
    • Stir the mixture until the coffee dissolves.
    • Heat the briki over medium-low or medium heat. Be patient; don’t stir constantly.
    • Lift the briki off the heat when it foams. The foam (“kaimaki”) is essential for a good Greek coffee.
    • Serve in a demitasse cup with the coffee grounds settled at the bottom.

Remember to sip slowly and enjoy the full aromas of this traditional drink
