Julius Meinl I opened a small shop in the heart of Vienna in 1862, selling spices from all over the world, rice, tea and green coffee, because back then coffee was still roasted at home in the oven. The story goes that one day a maid in tears came into the shop because she had burnt the expensive coffee beans. And so the idea of offering ready-roasted coffee was born.
However, it was his son, Julius Meinl II, who revolutionised the roasting process in Europe. Thanks to a process he invented, the beans did not come into contact with coal gases, resulting for the first time in a full, completely natural coffee aroma. Over the years, the special aroma and unmistakable taste have made Julius Meinl the most popular coffee partner in Vienna's coffee houses, where only the best is good enough.

Viennese coffeehouse culture has a special place in Viennese everyday life. Coffee houses such as Café Landtmann or Café Central are world famous. But basically all typical Viennese coffeehouses represent the special atmosphere, from the colorful selection of coffee recipes, cakes and international newspapers to the iconic marble tables, Thonet chairs and newspaper holders. Generations of thinkers, artists and writers have used the Viennese coffeehouse as a place of inspiration, gathering and exchange - then and now.
One of two Meinl roasting houses is located in Vienna's 16th district. Here, they specialize in the creation of premium Arabica blends and the typical Viennese roast, which is medium to dark roasted and characterized by a nutty, chocolatey taste.
