CoffeePirates Vienna – established in 2012 – was the first organic certified 3rd wave coffee shop and speciality roastery in Vienna, the city in which the renowned European coffee tradition all began. Our goal is to source, roast and craft the finest coffees from outstanding coffee farms around the world.

We travel to origin countries with the aim of creating transparency and traceability but most important, we want to have strong and long term relationships with our coffee farmers and cooperatives. There are always people and stories behind every coffee we roast and serve you in a cup.

We see the work with coffee as a valuable handcraft. Every single step of the process is taken pretty seriously. We go beyond Fairtrade by rewarding coffee farmers for their efforts in planting, harvesting and processing exceptional coffees. Therefore, with our focus on quality and sustainability, we pay up 3-5 times higher than the market or Fairtrade prices.

But CoffeePirates is more than a organic roastery and speciality coffeeshop. After all these years we are an institution for the 9th district and the university nearby, and a modern translation of the traditional Viennese coffeehouse culture.

It's all about the people

The key to great coffee and success are the people behind the bar, the roastery and in the kitchen.

We appreciate our team, treat our staff members with respect and provide an honest and grateful working atmosphere. We believe, this is the right way to create an environment where our team feels acknowledged and empowered to perform a great job.
