A little history

What is hidden behind the Viennese coffee? Well, the story is very short and many consider it to be invalid, but it seemed impressive to us. The story goes that after the liberation of Vienna, Italy, the troops of the Turkish empire left the area in despair, leaving behind many of their supplies. Among them were several bags of coffee, but at that time these beans had not yet spread throughout Europe. Upon discovering them, one of the first Viennese coffee shops was founded and began to be marketed as a drink and with a slightly different touch to how we enjoy it today.

The recipe

The Viennese coffee recipe is very simple. To make it, you will only use the coffee you use regularly, sugar and whipped cream. Of course, since the coffee we use is espresso, you must have a coffee maker precisely for it and that’s it, you can get down to work. This recipe is very popular in Vienna, of course, but it is also regularly marketed in Budapest and Spain.


  1. Make a coffee, small or double espresso, with a great concentration and intensity of its flavor.
  2. While your Viennese coffee is being made, beat your whipped cream in a cocktail shaker until it reaches a medium density.
  3. Once ready, add at least two teaspoons of sugar, as this recipe is somewhat sweet
  4. Subsequently, it is up to you to lengthen your coffee a little with water or milk, if you want it a little lighter.
  5. Be sure to serve your coffee in a clear glass cup or glass, so you can enjoy the mix of colors that will occur instantly.
  6. With the help of a spoon, pour the whipped cream over your drink, so that the Viennese coffee is ready.
  7. Many people also prefer to sprinkle cinnamon, grated pure chocolate or cereals at the end to decorate.
