Greece was under Turkish occupation for 400 years. It was also then that the Turks taught the Greeks to drink coffee. The Greeks became so fond of Turkish coffee that they were the first to sell ready-made ground coffee to prepare at home. It was the idea of the Loumidis brothers, whose brand Λουμίδης Παπαγάλος (Loumidis Papagalos) is still associated with good coffee and their slogan is known even to small children.

 „Ο καθένας είναι καλός στον τομέα του και ο Λουμίδης στον καφέ.”/”Everyone is good in their field and Loumidis is good in coffee.”


Loumidis was founded in the 1920s in Piraeus as a family business founded by the three Papagalos brothers. At first, it sold coffee, gradually transformed into a roasting shop. In 1932, cafes were opened in the center of Athens and Thessaloniki, and in 1938 also the famous cafe on Stadiou Street, which soon became a meeting place for intellectuals and artists.
