Coffee in Greece

You may not know this, but Greece is a place where you can find decent coffee. Greeks are very,very friendly. They love to sit with friends, drink coffee and talk for hours and hours without looking at their phones or apps (which is so weird nowadays ‘cos conversation without looking at your phone seems impossible)

When I’m in Greece, the first thing I do is buy these

 Yes I know these aren’t the BEST coffee products in the world, but they’re my haven and they bring memories back… You just make an ice frappé and enjoy it by the sea before going for a swim. Pure, simple pleasure.

Jealous much? Don’t be. The sea was crawling with jellyfish that summer so I had to stay on the beach and read my books day after day.

Anyways, few months ago, my darling sister and I tried the mexican coffee in Mikel in Thessaloniki. If you ever find yourself in Greece, go there! The man behind this business is a true success story. He launched his first Mikel café at the age of 29 upgrading himself from an employee in a café to an owner of a nationwide coffee company. Well done ombre! 


The ingredients for the mexican coffee we had are:
-chocolate syrup
-shot of espresso
-more cinnamon on top

And the result is : 10/10 (the first time I had it) and 4/10 (the second time, different barista).

Lesson learned: NEVER forget to specify that you don’t want extra sugar in the coffee!
