History of National Frappe Day
It was unknown when and who has introduced the National Frappe Day. Frappe is a Greek foam-covered iced coffee drink. The coffee is made with a cocktail shaker or a mixer. Frappe is made from blending instant Nescafe coffee, water, and sugar. Add cold water or ice cubes, and milk optionally. At times, it will be done with espresso and topped with the whipped cream. The frappe glass is served with a drinking straw. The word frappé is a French word and comes from the verb frapper that means to ‘strike‘ in this context. In French, the word frappé when describing a drink means ‘chilled‘ as with ice cubes in a shaker.
The world-famous Frappe was an accidental invention. A Nescafe representative named Dimitris Vakondios in the Greek city of Thessaloniki invented it during the Thessaloniki International Fair held in 1957. Some pronounce it ‘frap’ and others say ‘frah-pay.’ Frappe has been marketed chiefly by Nestlé in Greece. It is among the most popular drinks in Greece and Cyprus and is available at all Greek cafes. The frappé is a hallmark of post-war outdoor Greek coffee culture. In the New England, the term Frappe is pronounced as frap, and it refers to milkshakes. It is made with coffee, milk, ice, vanilla ice cream, sugar combined in a blender. Many coffee shops offer Frappés in a variety of flavours and with or without the coffee.
