Greek Coffees Shine in TasteAtlas Ranking

Espresso freddo is a simple Greek coffee that combines espresso and ice. Unlike similar ice coffee varieties that merely serve coffee over ice, this Greek version primarily blends the two ingredients until the coffee is slightly chilled, smooth, and creamy.

According to TasteAtlas, a popular online food and beverage guide, Greek coffee makes a strong showing on the "Top 38 Coffees in the World" list. In fact, three Greek coffees land within the top 10:

  • 3rd Place: Not revealed in the provided snippet, but likely a well-known Greek coffee variety.
  • 4th Place: Espresso Freddo: A cold, frothy coffee drink made with espresso, sugar, and ice.
  • 8th Place: Freddo Cappuccino: A cold cappuccino made with espresso, milk, and ice.

Additionally, the Australian flat white ranks 13th on the list, solidifying its position as a globally recognized coffee beverage.

It's important to note that this ranking is based on TasteAtlas's own criteria and might not reflect everyone's preferences. However, it does highlight the unique and diverse coffee cultures around the world, with Greek specialties earning recognition for their distinctive taste and brewing methods.
