Regular coffee is usually a cup of warm instant coffee which is also referred to by brand as "Nescafe". This can also be made into a frothy, cold beverage called "Frappe". Greek coffee resembles espresso in strength and usually has the grounds left in to add strength. Coffee brewed with water is called "Filter Coffee" and is usually served in a French press coffee pot. Specialty coffees such as espresso, capuccino and other coffees can be ordered as well.
