This is my all time favorite coffee, the Cappuccino Freddo, otherwise known as Iced Cappuccino Coffee. During the summer I do love to drink cold java, but unfortunately I am not able to find this type of coffee in my neighborhood, only if I go into the city center where there is a Starbucks that sells something similar to this but not exactly the same. So when I do go to Greece this is the first thing I buy once we enter the country.
There is this lovely cafe in the first village after you enter the boarders that makes this delicious strong, and I seriously mean very strong coffee. I don’t add any sugar into coffee but I do love to add a splash of Hazelnut Coffee Syrup, and this cafe has it all, so I spoil myself by adding a splash or two. hehehe (They basically have all the flavors like most cafes do in Greece) So, the foamy milk is not really the last step my last topping is Cinnamon Powder, this just gives the coffee “a blow your mind out of this world taste”, at least to me it does. 🙂 Sounds good??? It absolutely is!!! 🙂
Greeks do love coffee and this one along with the Freddo Espresso tend to be ordered more in cafes than the original Frappe. 🙂
- 1 1/2 teaspoons or 1 – 2 shots of Espresso/Cappuccino
- 2 tablespoons Sugar Brown/White
- Ice Cubes
- Milk Low Fat
- Tall Glass
- Milk Frother
The tablespoons and/or shots depend completely on how strong you like to drink your coffee, and so since I do enjoy drinking strong coffee I use 2 shots. Set coffee aside for a while to cool off before adding into Ice cubes.
Add coffee into a tall glass filled with Ice cubes, along with the sugar. Stir until Sugar has completely dissolved. Since I don’t add sugar into my coffee but enjoy just a splash of syrup this is also up to you how sweet you drink your coffee.
Use a Frother to beat the milk until it becomes thick and foamy. Top off the coffee with foam and a dash of Cinnamon.
