Coffee in Austria
Coffee has been an important staple of Austrians since the Turks were forced to retreat in the 17th century and left behind an enormous amount of coffee beans. Coffee houses have become iconic as gathering places for shoppers, businessmen, students, and workers alike. The daily coffee break, known as “jause” usually takes place around 3 in the afternoon when cakes and pastries are also enjoyed.
