  1. GAWD There HAS to be a Viennese Coffee Board
    or something!
    Why haven't they found you or vice versa
    magnifique comme d'habitude

    1. Merci for the sweet thoughts, Carol! xxx

  2. Hi Merisi
    Vienna may not have a coffee board, but they have a coffee school! We were walking in the 9th district one Saturday and found the Vienna School of Coffee. They teach people about making coffee and have many different big espresso machines for people to practice on (students are often from cafes learning how to use the type of machine in the cafe). Anyway, they have open house on Saturdays and, Johanna, one of the owners, is co-author of a very comprehensive book about coffee (German and English versions). We had a very nice conversation with her on our visit and enjoyed a great coffee!

    1. Thank you very much, Andrew,
      that is very interesting information! :-)

  3. I have not forgotten and hope to find one west of Vienna soon!

    1. May you encounter only coffee melange of the highest quality! xxx

  4. Sounds delicious that cup of coffee with beans roasted of the border!

  5. My mouth waters for a cup of delicious coffee like the one pictured.
    Beautiful shot.
