When two worlds meet.
The era of Biedermeier is flourishing and it is the peak of the Viennese art of coffee. Writers, musicians and painters are regulars in Vienna’s coffee houses. At the same time, Vienna witnesses a sensation: The first giraffe is brought to Vienna by the Austrian emperor Franz I. It inspires fashion, songs are written about it and the coffee houses start offering coffee „à la giraffe“.
Almost two centuries after “Vienna’s first giraffe“, Barista and coffee connoisseur Valentin Maier is visiting different regions of the world before returning to Vienna, to the source of the Viennese art of coffee – always following his goal of creating the best coffee for the ultimate pleasure.
Together they are Bieder & Maier.
