history and heritage

In 1862 Julius Meinl owned a grocery store in Vienna, Austria. At that time, coffee was sold green and unroasted, having been introduced only recently by the Ottoman Empire. One day, a maid came to him in tears, having saved her wages for weeks to buy a bit of coffee, only to burn it on her stove in an attempt to roast it herself. That day, Julius Meinl made the decision to be the first European to sell freshly roasted coffee on his shelves.

More than 150 years later, the Meinl family has brought their premium roasted coffee and Vienna Kaffeehaus culture to over 70 countries around the world. We are proud to invite you to our Chicago Kaffeehaus to share a taste of centuries of tradition!

The coffee shop represents social life at its best. It is a place where all sorts of individuals meet to discuss their dreams, to reflect on their thoughts, to share their ideas, to compose masterpieces, to read or just to quietly sit and watch our colourful life happen. With one single cup of coffee, which traditionally comes served on a silver tray with a glass of water, one is entitled to linger in the coffeehouse making you feel at home.

  • Respect doesn’t have to be shiny. It just needs to be wearable. Would you be so kind as to hold my jockstrap while I stir your hot coffee?

  • Hydrogenated & androgynous milky white love is all I have to offer you. You like me to pour it in your coffee or directly into your soul.

  • At Starbucks I like ordering a “Tall venti in a grande cup.” That’s basically me asking for a small large in a medium cup.

The perfect espresso

meinl_cup

For a perfect espresso, you have to get the very best out of the beans.

Consider the following parameters:

  • Water temperature
  • Water quality (“medium hard” water referring to degrees)
  • Amount of the ground coffee (7 to 8 grams for 30 ml of espresso )
  • Amount of the espresso (30 ml espresso including crema)
  • Time of extraction (ideally 20-30 seconds)
  • Tamping weight (around 15 to 20 kilograms; depending on grinding level & amount of ground coffee)
