Coffee is a great adventure
let us experience it all together
We see our roasting shop not only as a place where coffee is roasted, sold or drunk. Every coffee has its own character, just like we humans do. And like us humans, not every coffee is perfect. We want to preserve this character and roast the coffee as it suits and not force it to be something it is not. We even do not have the perfect extraction method for coffee. The way we prepare coffee here in the shop is our personal taste. Even a small change in the grind results in a different result in the cup. We are open to your opinions and encourage our customers to extract the perfect cup for themselves and to always try new things. We want to be part of the coffee adventure.
Using our knowledge and experience as an Barista, it is our pleasure to answer customers' questions about coffee. We are also pleased when we our customers tell us of their experiences and impressions, be it with our coffees or in general. We would also like to address you if you are a business owner, e.g. of a cafe or restaurant. We would be delighted to supply a coffee from our range that is particularly suitable for your business. Or if you wish, we can produce a coffee exclusively for you to your specification. Just ask in person or by email.
In order to bring the variety of coffee closer to you as a customer, we aim to roast and offer coffee from as many coffee growing areas, using the most diverse preparation methods as possible. Find out from us what the difference is between a washed and a natural coffee. Discover the latest developments in processing methods from us.
There are many ways to prepare a good coffee. The methods we choose are only a small part of the variety but we have selected them to show you how the type of preparation affects the result in the cup. We invite you to enjoy your favourite filter coffee prepared, for example, with the Aeropress; you may be agreeably surprised by the result.
The machines, devices, and accessories we use were selected from many excellent brands and suppliers because they suit us best. There are many designers, engineers, developers and craftsmen all over the world, who use their energy and passion to make the preparation of perfect coffee possible. They create fascinating machines and accessories that all prepare excellent coffee in their very special and specific way. So it would be presumptuous and arrogant if we told you as a customer that our machines and accessories are the best available and that is why we use them. As a customer, you are free to follow us in the selection of the devices, but we will also be delighted if you go home and prepare the coffee you have just bought from us in a dripper from a different manufacturer.
Sustainability and responsibility towards nature and producers are also a big issue for us. A major goal of ours is to buy all the coffees we offer directly from the producer on the farm. At the moment this is not possible for all coffees, but we have suppliers who also follow this philosophy and support the local producers accordingly. We want this sustainability and responsibility to be part of our shop, and we invite you too, to take your part in this. On our side, we will serve all drinks that are drunk in the shop in ceramic or glass. With the take-out drinks you can help us and send a small but important signal by bringing your own to-go cup. We will show our appreciation by a discount on the drink you order. Even when buying coffee beans directly from us in the shop, you can bring your own bean container and we fill it with the beans you want. Once again, there will be a discount on the beans when you bring your own container. A range of reusable cups and containers will also be on sale in the shop. Otherwise, we are happy to offer your drink to-go in a recyclable paper cup.
Finally there are my Austrian roots and my growing-up close to Italy which have also influenced our shop. The coffeehouse culture has a very long tradition in Austria. It is said it was the first coffee houses in Vienna in 1650 that influenced coffee culture throughout Europe. The Viennese cafes have always been meeting places for artists and writers and there are stories that some well-known poets or philosophers had their official address in one of the well-known Viennese cafés. Some of these cafes still exist today with their venerable flair. We don't want to and cannot copy these historically grown businesses. That would be too presumptuous. However, we would like to transfer part of this culture and tradition into the modern world, be it in the Roaster Profiles, a small selection of Viennese coffee specialties or in how we serve the coffee in the shop.If we look to Italy, the cafe is part of daily life. When people talk about coffee in Italy, it always means espresso. The maximum price for an espresso while standing at the bar of a café is set by law. All other Italian cafe specialties are based on a single or double espresso. These recipes for these drinks have a long history and tradition, which is probably the reason why they taste so good. Many of these recipes have been modified in recent decades and it is increasingly becoming a trend to serve them in ever larger cups. It would be arrogant and presumptuous to say that this is wrong or does not taste good, but we do not want to follow this trend, because the love of Italy, and of the time we were able to spend there, is very important to us. You will be served a cappuccino as in Italy, together with a little dolce vita.
