A Favorite For Coffee Lovers In The Summer 

As the weather gets hotter, many coffee lovers will switch to the iced coffee of their preference to keep cool in the heat. One notable favorite among many coffee lovers is the frappé. Did you know, however, that the frappé was invented by accident? 

How The Frappé Came To Be 

It’s true! The frappé as we know it might not exist if it weren’t for the fact that Dimitris Vakondios didn’t have access to hot water. When Dimitris, a Greek man, visited the 1957 Thessaloniki International Fair, he didn’t let something so little as not having hot water prevent him from having his coffee. Instead, he experimented. He shook together instant coffee with cold water and ice – and voila! The world’s first frappé! While this drink eventually became known by its French name “frappé” (meaning “to beat”) the frappé has a Greek heritage and remains a favorite in Greece today.
