At the Alt Wien

Logo_CMYK_RZ1The Coffee Legacy has found a home in THE roast / café – the Alt Wien :)

The beans that are the star of the cover (and get me through the day) and the café that inspired one of the main locations.

You can now buy signed copies of the book and bags of their fantastic beans right in the middle of Vienna! No worries though, they also ship the beans abroad!


You can find them in the fourth district:
Schleifmühlgasse 23, 1040 Vienna

The Coffee Legacy Paperback


After rereleasing the eBook and writing on the sequel, it is now time to bring out the new paperback version of The Coffee Legacy.

Thanks to my husband’s help with the formatting, I was able to get a proof copy which I’m really happy with.

The paperback is already available on Amazon and Createspace and will also be shipped out to other online booksellers. I hope you will enjoy having it in your hands as much as I do! :)

Wiener Blut reading on June 16

I am happy to announce that I will give a reading of Wiener Blut on

June 16 at 7.30 PM (local time)

at Shakespeare & Company in Vienna

Here is the official announcement from the bookshop:
“On Thursday 16th June 19.30 at Shakespeare & Company

An old Cafè, an even older legend and a new threat: On Bloomsday, Katharina Maimer will read from her first novel “Wiener-Blut”, set within the traditional Viennese cafe culture. “Wiener-Blut” is the story of cafè owner Isabelle Schindler-Krug and her role in a struggle for power that stretches back for centuries. As she tells her sons the legend behind coffee and Vienna, it becomes clear that one such legend is still in the making, with her own family caught right in the middle.

Katharina Maimer lives in Vienna and divides her time between the law, writing and podcasting. While writing her book in English she consumed a great deal of coffee.”
