Hochland coffee from the Salzburg coffee roastery

Coffee roastery Salzburg in the 220 degree roast house

At the eat and meet festival in Salzburg, restaurants, cafes and shops present their specialties - a festival for connoisseurs in Austria. We also visited the Salzburg coffee roastery in the 220 Grad Rösthaus and Cafe in Chiemseegasse 5, which is a little off the hustle and bustle of the old town in a side street. The espresso made from Ethiopian Arabica beans proves to be a highlight for the palate, as it tastes particularly aromatic and intense. Almost a bit like lemon. This is how coffee should taste!

The Rösthaus has a coffee roastery in Salzburg

In the Rösthaus von 220 Grad at Maxglaner Hauptstraße 29 in Salzburg, we then learn that the taste of coffee depends on many factors. There, Alois and Margret Macheiner, the owners of the café, roast their coffee themselves. There are sacks with coffee beans from Huila in Colombia, from Brazil or from Cuba and the highlands of Ethiopia. The beans are waiting to be roasted and sold to coffee lovers in the sales room. Depending on the origin, location and growing area, the coffee that is made from it smells and tastes different.

The Macheiners have turned their love of coffee into a career. That's why they travel the world in search of coffee varieties and taste experiences that the bean can produce. They get to know their coffee suppliers and the coffee farmers personally. Together with their children, they sometimes help to set up new coffee plantations or to harvest coffee beans.

Two types of coffee beans

At the Salzburg coffee roastery, we learn that there are two types of coffee beans. The Arabica bean comes from the highlands of Ethiopia. Their coffees are mild and aromatic. From there it began its triumphal procession around the world. There is also the Robusta bean, which grows in the lowlands and produces coffee that tastes intense. Coffee is often grown by small farmers. They dry the beans and finally deliver them to the countries where it is drunk. “Often,” Margret Macheiner explains to us, “the farmers don't drink any coffee themselves. Therefore, they cannot assess the quality. That's why we try to get them to use the coffee themselves. This is the only way they can get a feeling for what is important to us.”

The coffee unfolds its aroma in the Salzburg coffee roastery

Only in the roasting house of 220 degrees in Salzburg does the coffee get its aroma during the roasting process. This determines how the coffee tastes in the cup. “We have to pay close attention to temperatures and the duration of the roasting process. If the beans are roasted too long or too hot, the coffee quickly becomes bitter,” explains Alois Macheiner.

Coffee tasting in the Salzburg coffee roastery

At our coffee tasting, we experience for ourselves how different coffee from different regions of the world can taste. The range of flavors extends from coffee from the highlands of Ethiopia or highland coffee from Nicaragua and Guatemala to Robusta coffees. One thing is certain for us after this visit to the Macheiners. We will therefore pay more attention to the bean and its origin when buying coffee in the future. This is the only way we can get the best coffee afterwards.
