Greek Coffee (Classic)Product code: TCP.001
Coffee is a popular beverage worldwide, which is made from roasted and ground beans of the coffee tree or coffee plant. The coffee has a refreshing effect, which is due to the basic ingredient, caffeine, an alkaloid compound found in the seeds of the fruit.
Our traditional coffee, the so-called Greek, makes its’ appearance during the Turkish occupation. The Greeks of Istanbul and Northern Greece were the first to adopt this habit. Over the years it spread to the rest of the Greek territories and was served in cafes in the early 1900s and also in the first coffee shops. Greek coffee (known in countries of Western Europe as “Turkish Coffee”) is a species of coffee prepared by firing coffee beans in brick, and then milling them into a fine powder. People drink this coffee more than any other kind of coffee in many areas of the eastern Mediterranean, the Balkans and North Africa.
