Kathreiners Malzkaffee (Kathreiner's Kneipp Malz-Kaffee / Kathreiner's Malt Coffee) was a subsidiary of Katzreiner AG, a German group of companies in the wholesale grocery business. The business was founded in 1829 by Franz Kathreiner at Burgstraße 16, 17 in Munich. In 1870, the business was taken over by Emil Wilhelm who took Adolph Brougier as a partner in 1876, and the company was called Kathreiner FKN (Franz Kathreiners Nachfolger).
