Coffee and Mastika with Mr Giorgos of Mikro Kafe – Kos, Greece

Mr Giorgos has owned Mikro Kafe (Small Cafe) in Kolokotroni street, Kos Town since 1993. Just yesterday a very reliable source (a fellow cafe owner) told me that Mikro Kafe makes the best coffee in the island. During the day, the cafe atmosphere is very relaxed, attracting both locals and tourists alike. However, the tranquility can change quite quickly when the cafe is screening a basketball or football game in the evening, and patrons excitedly and passionately comment on the game. Mr Giorgos is very generous and a little cheeky, demonstrated through his offering of a small glass of Mastika (liqueur) alongside my midday coffee.
