Nescafe Frappe 550g - 2.75kg

Description

The Greek cafe frappe instant coffee, was invented in 1957 at the Thessaloniki International Fair.

A representative of the Nestlé company, Giannis Dritsas, was exhibiting a new product for children. It was 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 could not find any hot water, so, he mixed the coffee with cold water and ice cubes in a shaker and the result was the Greek Frappe!

 

This improvised experiment established the frappé which quickly grew in popularity in Greece. Nestlé capitalized on the drink with intense marketing campaigns in the 1980s that broadened the drink's popularity and left the brand name Nescafé inextricably linked with the frappé. Today, the drink is usually simply called a 'frappé' in Greece, but in the past, it was often called a 'Nescafé frappé'.

Preparation

A frappé can be made with a cocktail shaker or, more commonly today, with an electric milk frother or milkshake machine.

First, instant coffee (traditionally Nescafé), sugar (optional), and a little water are shaken or blended together until a thick foam is made. This is poured into the serving glass with ice cubes and cold water. 

Milk (traditionally evaporated milk) is optionally added to it. The drink is almost always served with a drinking straw.
