Apart from the morning ritual, the Greeks enjoy spending time on long coffees with beloved friends, over endless conversations. Priceless joyful moments! By the way, despite the small size of the country, Greece is among those who consume massive amounts of coffee within a year. If you want to really get the essence of what coffee culture is about in Greece, go visit some of the remaining "kafeneia" across Athenian neighborhoods, with typical character, around the city. Monastiraki, Ano Petralona and Thissio, Piraeus and plenty residential areas retain the smell and habits of old Athens.
