In 1994, the first Flocafé shop opened its doors to the Greek public, introducing and eventually establishing a new era of taste and quality. Over this 20-year successful course, Flocafé has been a leader in the Food service sector of mass catering with more than 90 shops. The company developed and evolved through continuous training and group work, this way building a long-lasting relationship with consumers. Our endless energy, our particular passion for coffee and the continuous search for optimized services and products has taken us to the next level - the FLOCAFE Espresso Room. The goal of this new concept is to upgrade the customer experience in a new ambience where everything – the people, the products, the aromas, the music – become one in order to form the perfect blend, every single moment.
The most precious asset of FLOCAFE Espresso Room is its people. The franchisees, the executives, the employees in the shops and in the company’s offices – exceeding 1,300 people – have all a common passion, coffee, and share the same desire for knowledge and creation beyond any limits. Committed to customer hospitality and to the success of the FLOCAFE Espresso Room, they work all together offering a sentimental essence to the brand, a human soul to the shops and a sense of “your people” to the customers. FLOCAFE Espresso Room and its people – fully dedicated to the coffee culture – make up a special high-end, yet easy-going, opportunity for relaxation, communication, hanging around and flirting, festively wrapped up in indulgence.
Qahwa in Arabic means strength. The coffee that was born in Ethiopia in about 700 A.C. was named after it, then due to travel to Yemen and from the port of Mocha to Istanbul, Venice and Rome to become eventually the most popular drink in the world.
The two basic coffee varieties that are being cultivated are Coffea Arabica, with the fine flavour and the rich aroma and Coffea Conefora Robusta with the stronger and rougher flavour due to its double caffeine content. Coffee makes a small journey to get to our mug.
Once its cultivation is completed, its fruits are collected and its beans are processed, so that the mix of the blends can follow in order to get unique flavour combinations. During roasting, the necessary oils giving coffee its aroma are released, while the full sense of taste and aroma is achieved with the grinding.
At FLOCAFE Espresso Room, we gathered all our know-how and we selected the right people with experience and passion for coffee, so that we can serve you three different blends that will satisfy your taste buds and will travel your senses.

Filter coffee has the highest concentration of caffeine?
Coffee must always be freshly-ground in order to get the maximum out of its flavours and aromas.
It is important to filter the water we use as it is constitutes one of the basic ingredients for the preparation of a perfect espresso.
The profile of your coffee is at its best when hot water is used for diffusion. If, though, the temperature of the water is excessively high, then all the aromas and flavours of the coffee are destroyed.
9-bar pump pressure, 90-94oC water temperature, 70-10 gram coffee, 16-20 kg tamper press, 25-30’’ diffusion time, 25-30ml beverage.
30ml espresso and finish with milk and milk foam.
130ml espresso, 180ml steamed milk and 30ml milk foam.
30ml espresso, 15ml chocolate beverage, 150ml steamed milk and 30ml milk foam.
Flocafe is the Greek coffee chain with the longest heritage in Greece. It all began in 1994, when the first Flocafe store opened its doors for the public in Kifissias Avenue, turning espresso into an everyday necessity of the Greek market. In 1995, the chain created its first store outside Athens, while 2000 was the year of the first Flocafe onboard a ship. In 2003, the Flocafe brand first appeared abroad, in the city of Nicosia, Cyprus. In 2014, Flocafe took one step further in its evolution and was redefined as FLOCAFE Espresso Room, the ultimate concept focused exclusively on coffee as an integrated experience, while in 2015, the chain developed this concept even further with FLOCAFE Espresso Room Street.
