Schreyögg Spices and Delicatessen Shop

The range offered at the spices and delicatessen shop on the square between the Kurpromenade and what is now Corso della Libertà was remarkable, raw coffee could even be purchased by the kilogramme. Apart from varieties as Santos, Java and Costarica, which we still know today, more exotic ones were also included in the permanent range. At the time the varieties were described in a very special manner:

Campinas: green, exquisite and of pure flavour
Domingo: very good, sheer high-quality coffee, particularly suitable for blends
Laquayra: an Arabic variety, blue beans, good, soft coffee
Guatemala: blue, very delicate and high-yield
Blau Java: large beans, extremely delicate and gentle coffee
Ceylon (until the middle of the 19th century only coffee was grown, which was completely destroyed by a fungus): extra delicate, flower of Colombo, full powerful bean
Neilgherry: very delicate and extremely strong coffee, particularly recommendable for blends
Menado: genuine, brown, excellent heavy Java for fine blends
Perl-Kaffee: blue, delicious and strong in flavour
Antioquia: excellent, fine tasting coffee
