Loumidis Papagalos Classic – Traditional Greek Coffee Superior quality.
Loumidis Papagalos coffee is the most popular traditional Greek coffee due its exceptional quality that has been consistent for many years. Its trademark, Papagalos ( parrot ), has not been an accidental choice, since parrot is the only bird which feeds on coffee seeds.
Around 1910, when Loumidis brothers became familiar with the coffee’s aroma, manually-operated mills and hand-operated coffee-roasters: this led to the opening of the first Loumidis Shop in Piraeus in 1919. Soon after that Loumidis opened another shop in Stadiou, in the center of Athens. It had already gained reputation all over Greece, and this was only the beginning. In 1969 Loumidis Coffee goes beyond Greek frontiers and starts receiving many awards in international exhibitions.
Specially blended and slow roasted.
