Julius Meinl is one of the oldest coffee roasters in the world

The beginning of the success story of the Viennese traditional roasting company marked by a groundbreaking invention. In 1877, Julius Meinl I developed one of the first mechanical coffee-roasting techniques in the world. Even back then, he was already passionately experimenting with coffee. His fine blends were well known and highly sought after right to the borders of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Since then, innovation for premium quality has played an important role for the brand.

Even today, the company presents works of global innovation. These include Vienna 1862 -an artisan slow roast coffee, which awarded the prestigious 3-star superior taste award at the International Taste Institute; Cold Brew, freshly prepared in an elegant stainless steel brewer on the counter; first in market biodegradable capsules (Nespresso machine compatible).
