How to make Freddo Espresso
Freddo espresso is a coffee made in Greece with the use of espresso and the frappe coffee frother. The result is a perfect iced espresso with an elegant foam.
I guess you love the espresso coffee. The thing is that by definition it’s hot…
I don’t know about you, but especially during summer I personally prefer to enjoy my coffee cold. As well, I love to stare at its foam on the top, I am used to the frappe, you know…
What would you say if I showed you a supereasy way to maintain the excellent espresso taste but this time cold with ice?
Also, the freddo espresso makes for bigger quantity than the single or even double espresso so you will be able to feel the enjoyment for much longer.
So let’s go:
You use a mocca or any espresso coffee machine to make a double espresso.
You leave your espresso for a few minutes to become cold. I personally put it in a pan to decrease the waiting time but this is not mandatory. Even in a glass it won’t take long.
You pour your espresso in a taller glass and if you want you add sugar or stevia.
You whisk it with the frappe coffee frother until it becomes foam. This will take anywhere between 20-30 seconds.
You add 6-8 ice cubes so that your coffee will last for long. If you previously hadn’t waited for these few minutes for your coffee to become cold, then the ice would have melted quickly resulting in a watery mix.
You fill the rest of the glass with water.
You add a straw and you’re ready! Enjoy!
Freddo espresso is one of the most well-known coffees in Greece and I really wonder how come it hasn’t become famous worldwide yet!
Give it a try, if you already haven’t, and you’ll understand what I mean, probably the most absolute coffee for this summer! (after frappe of course 😉 )
