Coffee in the Coffee Grundmann

The theme of ‘Coffee culture’ is already slightly longer to the heart. It is noteworthy as a drink for centuries combines so many people write so many stories, evokes the pleasures or as soul comforter warms the heart.

The traditional coffee houses Play a very special role. They are the places where the enjoy, relax and Exchange is accompanied by coffee drinking. You have made the drink coffee a social medium, which today is more popular than ever.

European coffee houses – a success story

The greatest poets and thinkers have met in the Cafés of Europe. Together painters, writers and composers who have revolutionized the art scene. The intellectual elite took advantage of these places, to present their work, discuss, correct, and edit.

In the early 17th century, the first coffee houses in Europe originated in Venice. In Paris, the coffee is an important part of the culture. So you want to, for example, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir in the Les Deux Margots be met and have love each other.

The Austrian capital is of course very important, when it comes to the topic of coffee culture. For hours, the guests of the Viennese Cafés enjoy their stay. There, listen to classical piano music and by smartly dressed Mr upper with a bow served their buggy or big brown .

The Leipzig coffee culture

The Leipzig coffee culture has experienced a particularly long history. 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.

Enjoy 100 years ago: the Café Grundmann

Very few coffee houses are since it opened in its original state. In the Leipzig South suburban I have discovered a piece of jewelry, where the time seems stopped 100 years: the Café Grundmann.

Wood-panelled walls, carefully made chairs, bright marble tables and an extravagant lighting make for a nostalgic and cosy ambience. 1919 the establishment in life was launched and running since then without interruption.

The Interior of the coffee house is completely in the Art Déco style kept – since the renovation in 1930 until today in its original state. No kitsch, no unnecessary decoration. Just as in yesteryear.

Coffee making facilities

In the style of a Viennese coffee house there to order the classic coffee café Grundmann. Großer Brauner, extended or Franciscan – the range of varieties is so varied, that guarantees every visitor finds the right drink for a cosy stay in tradition of Austrian Cafés.

A special offer is time lunch. The guest between 11.00 and 15.00, so he paid the amount his order time in DM. so order your potato Bacon salad 11.14, so you pay also 11,14 DM. Here, it is worth to go early to the lunch.

A classic Viennese coffee drink: The extended. An espresso, which is stretched with one part water. Of course, always served with a glass of mineral water. The extended was so strong that he literally opened my eyes.

Pure nostalgia

The Café is not right in the Centre of the city, but by its reputation seems to be there is always a hive of activity. The views of the beautiful Wilhelminian style houses and the green on the streets invites you to linger and dream.

Although not gone strolling passers-by through the high Windows and the many trees can be seen as a guest. But the selection of magazines and newspapers is so great that alone time is entertaining. Also, this is a good reason to be, to soak up the historic atmosphere and soul all at once.

I guess places to which modernity could make an arc. Places that let past live up a touch with their simplicity, history and style.

The Thonet chairs and marble tables, benches and coat stand by 1930 proudly present their signs of usage. And so one can dream coffee to the next as a visitor of a swallow what these objects have already experienced everything, heard and seen.

Their mouths remain sealed forever, and it’s also making such spots – the traces of the past that we can read only a limited, so appealing. So it is left, our imagination what it already happened here. Coffee drinking almost 100 years ago.
