2016_Lavazza Marco

Marco Lavazza is the next generation of the Lavazza coffee family, both an heir and Vice Chairman of the empire. Recently, he spoke with a men’s fashion and lifestyle blog about the business, the family and plans for the future.

Marco described traveling outside of Italy for the company for business. Going through Customs in other countries, he is of course asked why he is there.

“Work.”

“What do you do?”

“Coffee.”

That is when they ask “Are you related to the Lavazza coffee family?”

He goes on to explain that while it may not be obvious a family is behind the company, it is the family bond that has always been important. “There wouldn’t be Lavazza without family.”

As a company, Lavazza has partnered with a men’s clothing line in the UK, with NASA (for the coffee machine sent for the International Space Station), with chefs and with Wimbledon and Australian tennis. With over 2500 people working in the business, Marco feels the responsibility of leading an international company. “You have to be careful of what you’re doing. It’s not just fun.” Lavazza has always invested in research to find something new and different to delight coffee drinkers.

And the secret to a perfect cup of coffee? “Passion and tradition…in what we do and what we’ve done for 120 years. Just coffee.”

White Gold Season

2016_white asparagus egg ham potato

Last month, we wrote about King’s Day, a big spring celebration for his Majesty in the Netherlands. Another special event in spring in the Netherlands is the search for “white gold.” No, this is not some special milky coffee. We are talking about white asparagus, often called the Queen of vegetables.

The southernmost province of the Netherlands is Limburg, a key region throughout history of the area because of its borders to Germany and Belgium. Limburg is a culinary centerpiece: The area is warmer than other parts of the Netherlands; the province has many great restaurants and cozy cafes and, this is where the best asparagus is grown and eaten! The season is short, but at the end of April, everyone is excited about the arrival of the first asparagus. White asparagus grows under the ground, unlike green asparagus. They are planted in beds covered with plastic to control temperature and the color. As soon as the tips peek above ground, the delicacies must be harvested.

Limburg offers many “Asparagus Routes” so you can explore the fields and farms and then enjoy a lunch or dinner with the vegetable at a good restaurant. BTW, ham and eggs are perfect complements to white asparagus. Served with delicious Douwe Egberts coffee, you have a traditional Dutch meal!

Let’s celebrate the harvest with 10% off your order of Douwe Egberts, including Senseo pods and Pickwick tea, at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order.*

2014_Coffee and flower with EBC logo

We ran across this piece of advice from a (very old) farmer’s almanac:

Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots.

Enthusiastic about cleaning? Resigned to spring cleaning? Have no choice but to spring clean? Where ever you are, try these tips to make the process a little easier:

1. Use common household standards for cleaning rather than harsh chemicals. Baking soda scrubs without scratching, vinegar can clean most items, even coffee grounds (see below).

2. Keep your supplies in a convenient carrier that you can move easily from room to room.

3. Have upholstery and carpeting professionally cleaned rather than attempting to clean them yourself.

4. Open the windows to let in the fresh air.

5. Plan for easy meals for the days you will be busy with cleaning.

6. Use empty laundry baskets to pile in anything that you need others to sort through themselves. This is a good time to add a basket for items to be donated.

7. Set a timer for 15 or 20 minutes and focus on cleaning during that time. When the timer goes off, take a break, then set the timer again, and focus on cleaning for the time. Breaking the work up into small chunks makes it less intimidating.

Spring is also – that’s right, you guessed it – a good time to stock up on some new coffees for your pantry (after all, you’ll have plenty of room once you clean it out!). Let us help by offering you $5 off your order of $40 or more on www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

If you like Italian coffee (and honestly, what’s not to like?!), then you already know that Segafredo Coffee company is passionate and creative. Their dedication to continuous innovation in all aspects of coffee production has allowed the company to grow into the titan it is today. Massimo Zanetti started a coffee roasting business in Bologna in 1973. Today, Segafredo is part of a larger beverage group. The company runs a coffee plantation and a processing plant in Brazil, has more than 10 roasting plants and hundreds of Segafredo Espresso cafes around the globe and operates an entire Food Service line for commercial and office use.

Not surprisingly, Segafredo is one of our most popular coffees. For home preparation, Segafredo Intermezzo and Espresso Casa coffees are two of our best sellers. Intermezzo has an authentic Italian flavor thanks to its blend of Arabica and Robusta beans. The flavor is relatively strong, with spicy notes, good structure and a full aroma.
