Frappé is an iced instant coffee that is prepared by beating instant coffee with water either in a shaker or with a special mixer, creating foam. Hence the name, frappé, which means 'beaten' in French.

Despite the French name, frappé is a drink that gained popularity in Greece.

The Greek version of café frappé, using instant coffee, was invented in 1957 at the Thessaloniki International Fair. A representative of the Nestlé company, Giannis Dritsas, was exhibiting a new product for children, a chocolate beverage produced instantly by mixing it with milk and shaking it in a shaker. Dritsas' employee Dimitris Vakondios was looking for a way to have his usual instant coffee during his break but could not find any hot water, so, he mixed the coffee with cold water and ice cubes in a shaker.
