The Viennese coffeehouse has historically played a crucial role in the shaping of Viennese culture. Today, this unique phenomenon is well known all around the world and attracts numerous visitors from abroad, just as it does its locals.
About the logo of Julius Meinl coffee, there's a very interesting story.
Legend claims that coffee originated in the Ethiopian province of Kaffa in 850 AD. Both Arabia and the Coast of East Africa were among the regions owing allegiance to the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Coffee was brought to Vienna in 1683 by a besieging Turkish army.
In 1924 the well-known Viennese artist Josef Binder designed the coffee boy logo. While the fez represented a tribute to the Turkish Sultan, the angelic boy represented the youth of a new company combined with the history of Vienna.
The features of the coffee boy resemble the European Baroque angels that can be found throughout Austria's rich architecture. This logo has been modernized over the years. The coffee boy with the red fez is now the international trademark of the Julius Meinl Group.
