Greek Independence Day - March 25th

Even with all the turmoil in Greece right now, March 25th is a day to celebrate for Greeks worldwide. Almost 200 years ago, the Greeks became free from the rule of the Ottoman Empire. Although it wasn't until May of 1832 that Greece was officially recognized as an independent nation, the road to this victory was years in the making, starting in 1821. And now, the official national holiday to celebrate the Revolution is March 25th.

But the celebrations aren't limited to the festivals and the BBQ's that take place in the beautiful cities and small country villages in Greece. All over the world people of all backgrounds celebrate this day. Here in the United States, the White House hosts a special celebration and invites members of the Greek community and the Greek-American community to share in this special day. This wonderful tradition has been on-going for the past 25 years. Nowadays, it's even more encouraging to see the amount of support that exists worldwide for Greece as they continue to maintain their culture and traditions in such an uncertain environment.

Need a Pick-me-up?

Try a Greek coffee!

Made to order, Greek coffee will be sure to give you that needed caffeine boost. With its rich and nutty flavor, we customize your order to the amount of sweetness you like; from no sugar at all (which makes for one strong cup) to lots of sugary sweetness. Making this coffee is all about technique. The roasted coffee beans are ground so fine they become a powder, which is added to water and sugar and brought almost to a boil in a little pot. The coffee is then poured into the cup where all the grounds settle to the bottom and become a thick paste. After finishing a cup, old tradtion would call for one to flip the cup over the plate, let the grounds make their way down the cup and have someone read their fortune through the grounds, like reading tea leaves.
