9th St. EUROPEAN COFFEE HOUSE COLLECTION-AUSTRIA
To truly appreciate the long history of Austria's Viennese style coffee, you must go back to the year 1683 and thank the Turkish silk traders for leaving behind a few bags of green coffee beans. These beans were a blend of North African Robusta coffee beans most commonly used for preparing Turkish style coffee.
An enterprising Viennese cafe owner took the green coffee beans and with the use of his bread oven, crudely invented what is known today as the Vienna roast. This unique blend and roasting method began the rich culture of the Viennese coffee house. From this entrepreneurial beginning, spending part of ones day in a coffee house and enjoying the bold earthy taste of a Viennese coffee remains a staple of Austrian life and a "must-do" for all visitors.
