Herwig, our new chief yodeller is Austrian and if you drop by the Convenience Coffee showroom and warehouse at 10 Harvey Road in Paget weekdays, talking him into buying you a coffee is a piece of cake — a piece of Sachertorte — Austria’s national chocolate cake, to be exact.

You can also probably count on him or Kevin Rogers, (Convenience Coffee’s un-yodelling man about sales) to recommend one of our uber-fast, single-cup Keurig brewers or maybe even one of our new Lavazza LB Compacts (shown below,) all of which are designed to make great coffee and espresso at work or at home. And we deliver all our brewers and everything you can brew with them, anywhere in Bermuda, absolutely free.

If you’re quick enough to grab one of the new shipment of Lavazza brewers (they make exquisite Italian espresso faster than you can say “incredibile!” BTW) You can make a Viennese coffee just like Caffè Poli in this one minute Vimeo video.

Magical Viennese Coffee Ingredients

The basics

  • strong coffee
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • cinnamon
  • coffee beans

Caffè Poli ingredients translated from Italian in the video — serves four

  • 4 caffe lunghi ben caldi = 4 fresh, hot servings of espresso or other strong coffee
  • 4 cucchiai di zucchero = 4 teaspoons of sugar
  • panna montata = whipped cream
  • cannella in polvere = cinnamon

Viennese Coffee Directions

  • Brew an espresso or coffee a little stronger than you would ordinarily choose
  • Add sweetener (or not)
  • Add warmed milk (or not — see Peter Giannakis’ video below)
  • Pipe fresh or canned whipped cream on top
  • Garnish with chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon and/or coffee beans
  • Serve to someone you love — even you — and even if you’re not Austrian
  • Have teaspoons at the ready for whipped-cream-aholics
  • Prepare for oohs and ahhs
  • Repeat as necessary


Even if you don’t have an espresso-specific brewer you can create great-tasting, whipped-cream topped Austrian coffee experience with any of our K-Cup blends from Lavazza, Starbucks (except maybe their Breakfast Blend) or Gevalia.

Take a look at this, albeit silent, YouTube video by barista Peter Giannakis’ at Coffee School to see just how Vienn-easy it is.

All of Wolfgang Puck’s coffees are blended from naturally-grown beans from small estates — none of them on Rodeo Drive.) This is a premium medium-roast coffee at an un-premium price (unless you want it delivered in a Bentley.)

If you can figure out how much a coffee costs at Spago, post it on the Convenience Coffee Facebook page anytime in September, 2016 and we’ll deliver a carton of WP coffee right to your door for free, like everything else we deliver — for free.

#4: The Vienn-easiest way to get an Austrian coffee in Bermy

Degree of Difficulty:

This dark roast blend from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Company has less caffeine than its medium and light-roasted cousins but a rich, full, musical flavour like the world-renowned city from which it takes its name.

Like others from France, Italy and Spain, beans that are roasted in the Vienna (or “continental”) style are darker than even “full city roasts” so your experience of this brew will be even more a result of the process than of the beans’ birthplace…adding whipped cream makes it a symphony!
