A Viennese-Inspired Line of Coffee Accessories

August 21, 2013

David Freud founded his coffee empire in 1986, inspired by stories of his father’s inter-war life spent in the coffee houses of Central Europe, “where coffee, beer, culture, and conversation flowed hand in hand.” With his two cafes–one on Shaftesbury Avenue at the top of Monmouth Street in London and the other in Oxford–he aims to “recreate the bustle and chatter of his father’s treasured Viennese hangouts.” And luckily for us, he’s now selling his line of coffee and tea accoutrements (including Latin inscribed mugs and tea towels, perfect for the erudite).
