Favorite Coffee to Bring Back from Austria

I have some family members who are ardent coffee lovers so I thought I'd bring them back some packaged coffee from Austia (also going to Slovenia and Czech Rep). Does any have some recommendations for brands? I don't drink coffee, so it's not like I can taste test and bring the best home.

There's THE major brand : Meinl. Coffee in Austria is inexpensive, but Germany adds 2.30€ Tax to each Kilo.

Julius Meinel, Eduscho, or Tshibu... all are good. You can buy them at local supermarkets.

We always buy Julius Meinl. If you are in Vienna, you can go to the store - full of upscale food of all types. And a huge selection of their coffees.

In Austria and Germany we always pick up a pound or two of coffee at Tchibo (the Blue and Yellow coffee shops with the split personality).

In the front is is a coffee shop and in the back they sell everything from computer keyboards to sweaters or motorcycle gloves. It is fun to just go in and see what they are selling this time. Their prices are teriffic.

The coffee we like is the Beste Boune (best bean).
