Proudly presenting this 100% Arabica blend with a classic Viennese taste. It offers a perfect balance of coffees from top quality regions, for a complex and delicate taste.

Notes of citrus, milk chocolate and roasted almonds.

While working on this blend, we wanted to create a treat for coffee lovers, which displays a unique and modern character yet still has a balanced indulgent taste. Coffees from four origins are selected and carefully roasted till the first crack, so that the flavours of all the origins can be fully expressed, to give it a refreshing fruity brightness with a hint of spice and a sweet aftertaste reminiscent of milk chocolate.

Designed to be savoured for truly exceptional coffee moments. At Julius Meinl, each of The Originals Limited Edition is crafted by artisans, for artisans.


Sourced from FINCA POTOSÍ in Colombia, run by third generation coffee farmers brothers Rigoberto & Luís Eduardo Herrera, TRES DRAGONES gets its name from the three great furnaces that were once used to generate the heat for drying coffees on the farm after fermentation.  

For this very first naturally processed limited edition specialty coffee, the global awardwinning producer CAFÉ GRANJA LA ESPERANZA has used a very long in-cherry fermentation of over 54 hours in open temperature-controlled tanks, followed by drying silos for a slow and controlled drying. This creates concentrated sweet, fruity flavours and aromas.


Bursting with the juicy sweetness of red cherry, laced with delicate notes of fresh roses. A crisp, sweet acidity & gentle, buttery mouthfeel lends a rich warmth to the finish of blossom honey.
