Douwe Egberts In The Spotlight

DE-Gezellig-Holiday-Table

Many countries and languages have words that are difficult to translate. In the Netherlands, home to Douwe Egberts, the Dutch cherish something that is “gezellig.” The word is not easily translated because there is no comparable term in English, and because it means different things depending on what you are doing. It can mean cozy, quaint, fun, and can apply to anything (person, place or event) that includes feelings of belonging, love, and contentment. In fact, it’s the element of belonging that is key here. It’s time spent with friends and family, eating and drinking and enjoying being together. With the holidays approaching, what better time of year to find your own gezellig moments.

Douwe Egbert Coffees We’re Loving Right Now…

Our range of Douwe Egberts products include a variety of roasts available in ground, whole bean, instant, and our popular value packs.

DE-Sale-Advert-November-2018-NL

Have you tried Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee yet? It’s on the darker roast side, with spice and cocoa notes. We have Mocca Aroma in ground and whole beans. Just a reminder that this Mocca coffee is not the kind of coffee/chocolate drink you order at a café, but instead refers to the type of bean. Try it, you’ll surprise yourself.

Another standard around here is Douwe Egberts Black. We have this dark, rich coffee in ground. One of the brand’s most popular coffees, it had been discontinued a few years back, but since being available again, it’s proven to be a top-seller.

If you prefer a lighter coffee, try Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground. The Arabica blend is silky, smooth, with very subtle notes of fruit, and a mild flavor.

With the holidays coming, grab a Douwe Egberts Premium Coffee Variety package with four of their top sellers, including the three above (plus Excellent Aroma). The four-pack of 8.8oz./250g coffees is great for sharing or giving as a holiday gift, and with the discount above, you are really saving big!

The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

Mount-Vesuvius-Kimbo-Logo

Both brands have their roots in Italy. Kimbo, founded in Naples, at the base of Mount Vesuvius, makes authentic Italian espresso. Many consider Naples the world capital of coffee and for more than 60 years, Kimbo has taken the art of espresso to new heights.

Lavazza-Sustainability

Lavazza produces premium coffee and espresso. As a brand, Lavazza can be found worldwide – from international tennis tournaments, to art shows (Lavazza calendars stand as works of art on their own), to barista and coffee training centers, and to philanthropic endeavors, and it’s no surprise it’s the top selling coffee in Italy and beyond.

Italian Coffee In The News

Lavazza Museum Highlights 120 years Of Coffee

Lavazza-Museum

When Lavazza opened their new headquarters in Turin, the company knew they wanted to create an innovative and immersive coffee experience for visitors. The Lavazza Coffee museum, a dream of coffee drinkers, opened this past summer. When you enter, a get a Museo Lavazza espresso mug that activates the interactive parts of the museum. Vintage espresso machines and other coffee-making gadgets are on display, plus, you can learn how a bean becomes a cup of coffee. Of course, the history of Lavazza is also part of the tour. The best bit: At the end of the tour, guests can try one classic coffee drink (espresso or drip coffee) and one specialty drink (a cocktail infused with coffee). With tickets around $11 USD, you’ll get lots of information and two coffee drinks. What a bargain!

Kimbo Trains Baristas And You

kimbo-barista-training-2Kimbo knows that making coffee is a form of art. Whether you own a coffee shop, or just love good coffee, Kimbo offers barista courses for every level!

Coffee In The News, Expanded Edition, From EnjoyBetterCoffee.com

Turns out, coffee has been in the news recently, and sometimes for the most unexpected reasons!

EBC-Coffee-In-The-News-Banner

Let’s start down under, in Melbourne, where three different cafes offer a freshly brewed organic coffee that costs just over $100 USD per cup, or in this case, per glass goblet. With flavor notes of lychee, passionfruit, cognac, and cocoa, it’s a “lavish” and special blend that costs about $3500 USD per kilo.

air-force-coffee-mug-cropIn news from the Air Force, there is discussion around the costs for replacement coffee mugs used by personnel working on air-refueling tankers. The cups are able to reheat the liquid, but are easily dropped, and the handle is the first to go. The department is replacing the mugs, at $1280 apiece, when this happens. The Air Force is looking into ways to produce new handles, possibly with a 3D printer, to help save money.

If you’d rather stay planted firmly on the ground, you can stay in a tiny house (of TV fame) that is powered by coffee. Well, ok, a generator powers the 275-square foot home using a biofuel blend of 80 percent coffee oil extracted from coffee grounds. The space includes a loft bed, full-sized bathroom, spa tub, and cedar porch. Unfortunately, it’s booked solid for its limited run at its current location near Boston.

edible-water-cropA UK company has been extracting natural minerals from plants and seaweed in order to create waste-free alternatives to disposable plastics such as bottles, cups, and plates. Its first product is an edible water bottle made from brown seaweed. Seaweed decomposes in weeks, it’s cheap and easy to grow and harvest, plus it’s readily available on coastlines. Now, company resources are working with the brown seaweed to make a sustainable paper cup for to-go drinks. The European Union has a goal to make all packaging reusable or recyclable by 2030.

Coffee And Your Health

Turkish-coffee-300pxA Spanish scientist has found that Turkish coffee is the richest in polyphenols, a compound in coffee that research suggests helps reduce the risk of heart disease. Scientists acknowledged this after studying the locals from a Greek island who happen to live beyond the age of 90. These locals drink coffee daily, 3-4 cups per day. We have Turkish coffee under Coffee By Type, if you want to experiment.

Also in the news this week was the release of a report that found women who drank four or more cups of coffee per day had a 23 percent lower chance of getting rosacea, a skin disorder, compared to those who drank less than a cup a month. As always, further studies are required to understand how it all works.

Not that any of us need more reasons to drink coffee, but it’s good to know anyway!


And Finally, Just In Time For Halloween…

Haunted-Coffee-Shop

Real-life paranormal investigators have found that a coffee shop in Marietta, Georgia, is “definitely haunted.” Baristas had been reporting strange things: “ghostly whispers,” knocked over chairs, and other items out of place. Shop owners invited the paranormal PI’s to check into it. During their time in the café, they and others heard a baby crying, and with their electromagnetic reading equipment, claimed that some ‘uncooperative spirits’ were hanging out in a corner booth, and in a hallway. With Halloween just around the corner, seems the timing of this “news” is just a bit too coincidental. Just sayin’.
