Greek Espresso Italian Style

Greek Espresso Italian Style



logo Università del Caffè


  • 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp (25 ml) Espresso
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) fresh whole milk
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) liquid sugar
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6-7 ice cubes


This delicate coffee frappé is a natural born acrobat, floating, with its inherent grace, on a layer of light and elegant cool milk. The result is the Greek espresso italian style, yet another variation on the theme of the unsurpassable ‘milk and coffee’ pairing.

  1. Prepare the Espresso in a small cup.
  2. Pour the milk into the 2/3 cup (150 ml) glass.
  3. Put the ice, liquid sugar and, last of all, Espresso, in the blender. Blend.
  4. Pour the mixture into the serving glass, filtering the ice with the strainer. Perform this operation delicately, so that the frappe floats above the layer of milk.
  5. Decorate with a dusting of cocoa, and serve.
