The day I discovered Süssmund.
“Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”
Snowy days, oh how I love them. I am so so soo happy we finally got some snow a few days before Xmas. As I am a winter person, the white little flakes do a great job in amazing me to be honest. Snow in combination with coffee is just perfect, is not it?
Well, today I would like to introduce you one coffee place which is highly valuable in the coffee world and also to me. About a year ago a tiny little spot in a Viennese pub called “The Brickmakers” got me with their tempting coffee corner called caféatelier. That was the lucky day, I actually got the chance to try the Süssmund coffee. It tasted like coffee heaven. From that day on, it happened to be my absolutely favourite coffee in general. Unfortunately the caféatelier literally disappeared a while ago. But do not worry, the story goes on. The man behind this coffeespot – his name is Nikolaus Hartmann who recently became a truly coffee passionate and coffee expert – started his own project. The project carries the lovely name Süssmund.
The Süssmund café is located in the first district right behind the Jewish Place of Vienna. Actually that place happened to be a supermarket in former times. I am truly thankful for my curiosity because otherwise my way probably would never led me to the caféatelier which convinced me for further exploring – finally to the special Süssmund.
The quality of the coffee is a blast. When you are entering this place – and during cold winter days you have to pass the curtain which stops the freezing wind first – you spot a bunch of grey boxes which represent the front side of the barista counter. As well as this, they are filled up with wrapped coffee material for sale. I really like the cute furniture including cosy pillows and flower vases. The Süssmund roasted coffee is available in a few other coffee places in Vienna too – I hardly know anybody who is not convinced of their famous filter coffee yet.
All in all, I can truly recommend their coffee served with love, passion and know-how. Currently during the pre-holiday season you actually can spot some snow while you are sitting in the warm coffee gem Süssmund. Let´s enjoy this beautiful combination. 🙂
At this point, I would like to wish you all a very happy Xmas and hope you can spend it with the people you love. Enjoy the holidays, relax and slow down a bit. Coffee might help you doing that. Well, happy Xmas once again and stay tuned, you will get to read more coffee posts soon. There is still some coffee content which needs to be shared with you in the year 2016.
