On Saturday, April 11th Greek will not be out in coffee shops drinking their coffee and reading their newspapers as they usually do. The reason is that they will boycott against all kinds of coffees and all coffee shops because of the high prices of the brown aromatic liquid. The boycott is organized online, where a message is distributed, which claims that Greece has the most expensive coffee in Europe.

Usually, the black filter coffee starts from ?2.50, the cappuccino and the frappe start from ?3.50 and some finer types of coffee like the fredochino, mochacino, and caudito reach ?6.50. Those prices are in not in a 5 star hotel bar but in normal square cafeterias. Greeks have a soft spot for coffee – each year they drink 5.8 billion cups of coffee, which cost them ?1.8 billion.

So Saturday is the big day – Greece without coffee! This is moment long awaited by producers of ouzo, wine, souvlaki, gyros and all other culinary alternatives of the coffee.
