Such a “gesture” so that a person drinking coffee would have the opportunity to cool down and refresh himself. After all, coffee increases the tone, and Greece is far from a northern country.
A little bit later, Turks themselves started taking an interest in this coffee habit, which is intriguing information. Serve a hot drink with a glass of cool water in Turkey began ten years later. Much later, the tradition spread throughout Europe. Traditionally, the procession started in Vienna. Therefore, Viennese coffee with cold water.
