About the program

In Hungary the coffee culture derived from the Turks, Germans and Italians, it is an interesting mixture of the three, it combines the specialties from each. The institute of coffee houses began to spread in the 18th century, and lived their heyday in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. They were a meaningful and remarkable scene of Hungarian political and literature life, the place that gaves inspiration and where big plans were born.
