This coffee might have an Italian name but it’s a Greek invention! Freddo is the Italian word for "cold" and yes, ladies and gentlemen: this is how Greeks like their cappuccino during the hot summer months.
Brew a double shot of espresso using the moka pot like here. If you want to add sugar, dissolve the amount you want in the hot coffee during this step.
In a shaker, pour about 50ml of low-fat or whole milk (preferably UHT). The milk should be from the refrigerator and it is good to put it in the freezer for 3-4 minutes to make it colder. Alternately, you can add some ice cubes.
Beat the milk with an electric mixer or frother until it becomes firm.
Fill a tall glass with ice cubes almost to the top. Freddo glasses are about 260ml, so if you have another glass with that same capacity, use that one.
Pour the hot coffee on the ice cubes, stir to cool.
With a spoon, carefully place the foam on the coffee, add a straw and enjoy!
My name is Vasileia and I’m here because i decided to combine my two favourite things: writing and coffee. Don’t I love travelling around the world and visiting coffee shops but my biggest goal is to visit a coffee farm, to see where it all starts!
