moods, stimulates conversation, announces your connection to a lifestyle
unique to Greece, and connects you to it when you’re away. It is nothing
less than a modern Greek elixir."

Some look at a glass of frappé and see only a sensationally frothy
mixture of coffee, sugar, water, and ice. The citizens of Frappé Nation
see a symbol of idyllic summers in Greece.
Frappé Nation: Ora Gia Kafe
(Time for Coffee) is an illustrated travelogue of the Hellenic café landscape,
starting in Athens
and crisscrossing the cities and islands of Greece, from Corfu to
to Chania, Rhodes to Santorini.
Yet it is much more than just a coffee-table book about coffee: Authors
and Daniel Young investigate the bond between modern Greeks and their
national drink. This special relationship is rooted in an ancestral thirst
for public dialogue and interaction, hence the chapter devoted to “The
Ancient Art of Greek Conversation.” Other chapters indicate the scope
of Vivian and Daniel’s cultural exploration:
– The Frappe Moment
– The Modern Greek Elixir
– The Story of Greek Coffee and Coffee in Greece
– From Kafeneio to Cafe to Cafeteria
– The Invention of Nescafe
– The Science of Frappe Foam
– How to make a frappe
– The Frappe Diaspora
Published in 2006 by Potamos in a single, hardcover, 192-page, bilingual
English-Greek edition with over 250 color photos.
