160 years after first helping to shape today’s modern coffeehouse culture, Julius Meinl is relaunching its family secret recipe to HoReCa, a recipe that both reflects its strong heritage and leads the way for the future of coffee pleasure.
The 1862 Vienna blend it’s an iconic product for the quality and expertise offered by Julius Meinl, and the mention of ‘Vienna’ in the title gives a respectful nod to the spirit of the coffee house culture that was abuzz during the time the company began.
The Arabica beans that bring together the tastes of East Africa and Latin America are meant to deliver a complex and luxurious taste experience, encompassing aromas of hazelnut, caramel and malt.
An award winning and superior coffee drinking experience
The 1862 Vienna blend has achieved a 3-star Superior Taste Award from the prestigious International Taste Institute. It is the highest award the Institute can bestow and is acknowledgement that the 1862 Vienna blend sets a new standard for superior taste and blend consistency.
Beyond the blend – the Julius Meinl holistic concept
Relaunching and extending the 1862 Vienna blend, Julius Meinl delivers a new holistic concept that allows hospitality outlets to furnish customers with the very best coffee drinking experience. Four-steps founded on industry-leading experience ensures that the exclusive blend is always coffee perfection:
- Carefully selected for top quality, the company’s coffee atelier in Vienna roasts in batches of 100 pieces every week to ensure each bean is pure perfection.
- The blend is then stored and shipped to the customer in an exclusive 3kg Aroma Fez, to maintain optimum flavour up to the moment of serving.
- The concept features a machine perfectly set up for the 1862 blend, with top grinding technology that promises the highest quality taste in every serve.
- And in a final touch of luxury to the serving experience, each coffee is presented in a specially created 1862 Vienna cup, redesigned by Matteo Thun, allowing outlets to provide a pleasing look to an iconic coffee blend.
