The Pumphreys Viennese is a mixture of roasted and ground coffee and roasted and ground fig of which not less than 85% is coffee and which contains no substance other than roasted coffee and fig.
The popularity of this style of coffee can perhaps be explained by the sweetening and smoothing effect of the fig seasoning.
N.B. Must be ordered as Ground.
I have tried fresh coffee from all over the country with all sorts of claims about how good they are, unfortunately most do not match the label so to speak! Pumphreys Viennese with fig seasoning however ticks every box for me, exceptional flavour and aroma and no bitter aftertaste which many others have, taken black or white it is an exceptionally moreish coffee
I was a child in Northumberland and used to pass Pumphreys, with its aroma of roasting coffee, before crossing the road to the Central Station and thence to my grandparents in Harrogate. My parents only drank tea, though they did keep Camp coffee for those who drank that sort of thing.
When as a student I met my girlfriend, later my wife, I was introduced to real coffee and when I met her mother it was Blue Danube in the percolator. My visits to Pumphreys became more numerous on my way to the station and then stopped with the metro and the convenience of car transport.
I felt the need for Viennese coffee for my coffee filter using what the Austrians call the Karlsbader method.
I like this brew, can taste the figs so I will reorder.
I was so disappointed - I could not taste any fig in the Viennese coffee you sent me recently.
Perhaps I was sent the wrong coffee although it was labelled Viennese
Excellent. I have been looking for a good quality viennese coffee and additional fig flavouring for many years, and am very pleased with my purchases, will certainly use you again.
