(Knowledge and culture about German Bakery and Coffee)

German Bread

(1). In Germany, bread is more than just a food – it is a part of the German culture. Germany produces more types of breads than any other country. Over 300 varieties of dark and white breads and over 1200 varieties of rolls and mini-breads. (“The German Bakery , Parramatta”, 2018)

(2). “German bread varieties differ according to the cereals used – rye or wheat – the ratio at which these bread grains are mixed, the type of cereal products as well as special ingredients and production methods. They can be divided into four categories: rye, wheat, whole meal and specialty breads containing other cereals such as spelt.” (“germanfoods.org”, 2018)

German Coffee

(1). Coffee drinking was introduced into Germany about 1670. Northern Germany got its first taste of the beverage from London, an English merchant opening the first coffee house in Hamburg in 1679. It was known as the English coffee house. For many years, English merchants supplied the coffees consumed in northern Germany, while Italy supplied southern Germany. (“The German Bakery , Parramatta”, 2018)

(2). “For centuries, Germany’s sea-coast cities Hamburg, Bremen and Lübeck have been important ports for the import and processing of coffee beans and tea leaves. In fact, Northern Germany prides itself on a well-established, unique coffee and tea culture.” (“germanfoods.org”, 2018)
