Coffee like it used to be
The Zum Arabischen
coffee house in Leipzig is one of the oldest continuously operating
coffee houses in Europe, which was first mentioned in records in
1556. Nowdays it is divided into several cafés and restaurants
serving speciality coffees as well as other food and drink, while
the third floor houses a coffee museum.
Alternatively, the evocative aroma of roasting coffee beans fills
the air at the
Schmole coffee roasting house in Pirna (on elbe River) where
coffee is roasted in the traditional way using a drum roaster made
to a late-19th century design. Entering the shop in the historic
centre of Pirna is like stepping back in time.
