Our life philosophy

Because coffee is not just coffee.


The creative names of our coffee specialties reveal the important role this luxurious drink plays in our culture. It starts with the pronunciation. According to the Viennese writer Hans Weigel, the difference between Káffee and Kaffée is very important. Those who emphasize the first syllable, order only one drink. But when the emphasis falls on the second syllable, that immediately implies an entire way of life. In addition to these imaginative names, the traditional Viennese coffee house also distinguish between "white" and "black" coffees.

Ristretto

Short espresso.

Single mocha

Pure espresso, which can also be ordered as ”kleiner Schwarzer“ (small black) or ”großer Schwarzer“ (large black). The large black is also called double mocha.

Single Brauner

Aromatic black espresso served with coffee cream. If you wish you may also order the cream apart in a separate jug. This way of serving is referred to as “séparée”. Until the mid-20th century the “brown coffee” was also referred to as “a cup of gold”.
