Just Made 33

December 1, 2019

I had looked in Just Made 33 on my way to Exarchia Square.

I was pleased to find open and had a brief chat with the owner.

I had passed by several times and not found open. Closed as I suspected, digging up the street outside, Sunday a respite.

On my return from Exarchia Square I managed to find Just Made 33, but owner not there.

Staff have always been pleasant and friendly, service good. Not today. Miserable to the point of being rude, service poor, a not very pleasant atmosphere.

I watched the barista. Not a clue on pouring a V60, though no problem with my cappuccino.

Late afternoon, even before sun has set turning cold.

The baristas of last year all appear to have left. And it shows. The female barista I met several days ago, not there.

A cappuccino and a cake.

I then went in search of Peek a Bloom which is nearby. Could I find?

No. Or at least I did eventually, hidden down an alley.

Coffee has not only to be good, it has to be consistently good.

Just Made 33 achieves that consistency. Whenever I have had a coffee, no matter who has served me, it has been excellent.

As I was walking past, I looked in The Underdog.

As last Sunday, hit by a wall of sound.

I decided not to stay and continued to Just Made 33.

Excellent cappuccino.

Not my order. V60 using Panama roasted by Sapid.

Morning pleasant and sunny and warm.  Afternoon cool and cloudy. Evening rain and cold.

I made Just Made 33 as it started to rain. The temperature dropped. Even inside it turned cold.

For me a cappuccino and chocolate bar.

Cappuccino excellent.

I watched an Ibrik being brewed, Greek coffee.

I am used to a small copper pot. This a different shape.

And a different method.

Brought to the boil, rises to the top, then removed from the flame, but nor reatedly brought to the boil.

The coffee ground very fine, almost like powder.

Then green tea being made in a vessel I have only seen in Athens.

The tea allowed to brew, then dropped into a carafe below.

I knew Just Made 33 made excellent sandwiches and cakes, but not hot dishes, but then I have never looked at the menu, nor am I there lunchtime or in the evening.

Interesting conversation with barista and waitress, both knowledgeable on coffee.

Lunch at Just Made 33

The food at  Just Made 33 always looks enticing.

Although I had already eaten, I decided to have one of their open sandwiches, though my real reason was a V60 using their Panama Geisha.

The sandwich was excellent.

I was though to be disappointed with the Geisha. They had none left.

I settled for a freddo cappuccino.

Wander around Athens, and like Cyprus, unless you are very lucky, you will not find good coffee.

The times they are a changing, excellent coffee as in Cyprus is starting to make an appearance.

I would like to say I stumbled upon Just Made 33, as I usually go where my feet take me, but sadly not , I used what I would normally not, I used  a guide, and that was what led me to the vicinity of the church, but where was the coffee shop, and which one was it? All I had was the church halfway down Ermou marked on a map.

I chanced a side street, turned a few corners, now lost and disorientated, I asked.

I was directed back to the church.

Trendy is not the word, a corner location serving excellent coffee, numerous brew methods, delicious cakes, I tried not the other coffee on offer.

To my amazement, Panama Geisha served. If nothing else, a good reason to return.

A glass of water brought without asking.

You want it hot? Strange question. But then everyone else drinking freddo cappuccino.

In the past I have searched for a freddo cappucuno, was looking forward to, but now I wanted a cappuccino as a benchmark.

Served with two tiny salt like pots. On was chocolate, the other cinnamon.

I then tried a bar. Peanut butter, chocolate and hazelnuts.

They work closely with a roastery Sapid  located outside Athens.

Outside somewhat noisy due to motorbikes riding through a pedestrianized street.

I would recommend they subscribe to Standart, maybe have on sale.

Just Made 33 was packed.

Think of the best coffee shops in England. Just Made 33 is in another league.

I asked of other coffee shops. It was suggested try nearby Tailor Made, also slightly further away Taf Coffee.

Located in Monastiraki.

To find, head down Ermou from Syntagma. If you have hit the church, you have gone too far. Back track. Take the first street on the right before the church.

Ermou is the Athens’ equivalent of Oxford Street in London. The same crap chain stores selling the same sweatshop goods as find in any crap shopping centre.
