Coffee in the Coffee Riquet Leipzig

Coffee culture

The Leipzig coffee culture has a long history behind it. Already 1694 the drink was served there for the first time publicly. In connection with European porcelain, such as that of the Meissen Manufactory of tradition, it became over the years one of the most popular drinks in Saxony.

For this reason the locals were often referred to ironically as coffee Saxony.

Saxony was one of the leading German business locations in the 20th century. The wider population was fortunate to be able to consume the prestigious beverage. In the course of time, numerous, charming little Cafés in Leipzig were opened. Unfortunately any more does exist about thirty coffee houses which once today.

However, there is a magical place where this long tradition is revived again in the heart of downtown. The 1996 opened Café Riquet makes an nostalgic experience in Art Nouveau style coffee drinking.

History

I walked past a long time at this Café. I found very impressive and enchanting it from the outside, but I had the feeling, as a simple student due to the high-quality design there something out to be misplaced. Until I myself but once inside got married. And I realized that I was completely wrong. Everyone feels welcome there. The prices are no different than in other facilities, except that the atmosphere in the Café Riquet is simply unique.

Thats actually a stylish unique according to site ‘unique architectural gem’. The business House of the company of Riquet was built in 1908 and once belonged to the most modern buildings in Leipzig. The the coffee family Riquet trade tradition dates back to the 18th century. On the basis of the relations of the company Riquet to East Asia and the Orient, many elements of local culture in the design of the House were integrated in an impressive manner.

The curved roof turrets reminiscent of Chinese architecture, while the elephant heads flanking the front door are the hallmark of the company.

Many international coffees enjoy together with the typical Leipzig Lark there. Also carefully selected tea and chocolate tastings are offered as alternatives to the Caffeine drink. The selection is very tempting cakes and pastries.

I like to find a so nice spot, where I myself can go into a small journey in the middle of the city centre. Even the operation with their retro clothes adapted to the history of the House. If I even need a moment for me and something turn off then I feel there poodle.

It is the ideal place’s boyfriend or girlfriend cozy to make and to contemplate life, to enjoy the people wandering through the streets to observe or simply delicious pastries. I’m into there also like a book, to be quite for me and to let me von the classical music lull.

Who so even a slightly different, nostalgic kind of coffee experience and want to enjoy, and even in the old, immerse the Saxon coffee culture like this place was this highly placed at the heart.
