2017_mondrian-partridge-family-bus

The Netherlands has long been a supporter and promoter of the arts, and this year will be no different. Celebrating 100 years of a Dutch art movement, De Stijl (aka Neoplasticism), the arts community will honor the style in events and exhibitions throughout Holland in 2017, which has been named Mondrian to Dutch Design.

The art style, using simple lines and primary colors, was the avant-garde style in the first decade of the 20th century. Piet Mondrian (1872 – 1944) was one of a small number of Dutch artists, and one of the best-known internationally, pioneering this new way of looking at art and life. Mondrian wrote papers and a book and he designed buildings based on the artistic school of thought.

The De Stijl influence on architecture was strong and still inspires designers and artists today. Mondrian eventually disagreed with the group over the use of diagonal lines in art and ended up going his own way.

This year, cities critical in the movement will be showcasing their best work inspired by the style, from Mondrian’s birthplace in Amersfoort, to Leiden, where the movement launched in 1917, to the north and to Gelderland, where there are abundant examples of the style. Museums across the country will showcase the group’s paintings.

Let’s celebrate the arts with Douwe Egberts, another internationally well-known product of Holland! Get 10% off your order, no minimum required at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

2016_German cityscape with logoWould you be surprised to know that Germans love their coffee more than water (by a bit) and more than beer (by a lot)? As it happens, Germany is the world’s largest retail coffee market after the USA and Brazil. In just a few years (2010 – 2013), coffee consumption nearly doubled in Germany. A well-known international coffee company hired researchers to find out more. The study involved 1000 coffee drinkers from Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Here are some of the significant digits that signal a change in coffee habits in the German home:

* 29 percent of all coffee drinkers proudly display their coffee machines at home.

* Almost the same percent of 18-29 year olds say the coffee machine is a status symbol; only 18 percent of those over 50 consider it so.

* 60 percent say they cannot start the day without coffee.

* 50 percent of all drinkers are willing to spend more money for quality coffee. As many as one-third are interested in coffee specialties from other countries and cultures.

* Almost 30 percent say good business requires good coffee.

Some of the best coffee companies began in Germany. This week, we want to recommend these premium German coffees: Jacobs, Dallmayr, Eduscho, Tchibo and Davidoff. (Read more about these brands below.)

Across Italy, the traditions of St. Nicholas Day include not just the days during the first week of December, but also three days in early May. St. Nicholas, San Nicola as he is known, is the patron saint of several cities, including Bari and Sassari, where young brides-to-be are given gifts in December. Children write letters to St. Nicholas asking for gifts. If the children have been good, they will receive treats from St. Nicholas. For the naughty ones, “charcoal” is given, which are really sweets made especially with dark-colored sugar.  St. Nicholas is not just a holiday tradition. He is also the patron saint of children, sailors, charity, and travelers.

Any tradition in Italy includes enjoying the best coffee and espresso available. We appreciate the traditions of 3 of our favorite Italian roasters: Lavazza, Segafredo and Kimbo. Read more about them below. In the meantime, buy any of these brands and we will give you 15% off your order with no minimum order.*

Segafredo is a leading espresso producer, with more than 70,000 clients drinking 50 million cups of espresso every day. As part of the Massimo Zanetti Company, their mission is to spread the taste, culture and preparation of real Italian espresso. How have they done that? By making coffee guaranteed from the plant to the cup, quality shines in every sip.

Kimbo “It’s From Naples Where Espresso Is A Passion”

Kimbo is another great company steeped in the traditions of Italian coffee. The Rubino Brothers founded Kimbo in 1963, after years of owning and running Café do Brasil.

2016_shoes-filled-for-st-nicks-day

If you lived in Holland, you would be putting your shoes near the chimney this week so that Sinterklaas might leave treats for you, assuming you were good that is.

From Sinterklaas arriving in mid-November, up to St. Nicholas Day, children and adults alike put their wish lists, special drawings, and carrot or hay for Amerigo, Sinterklaas’ horse, in or near their shoes.

The evening of the 5th, Sinterklaas and his team are very busy, visiting all the houses in the Netherlands. Well-behaved children receive gifts, often stuffed in a bag. The Dutch like a holiday gift to be surprising, so maybe a small gift is wrapped in a huge box, or the gift is hidden and the recipient gets clues to help find where it is. All gifts are “from Sinterklaas” and might have a clever rhyme that gently pokes fun at the person. (If you are having trouble creating the rhyme, there are plenty of books with suggestions for the rhyme and for disguising packages.)

Treats include speculaas, marzipan, hot chocolate, and the very important chocolate letters, usually the person’s initial. St. Nicholas Day was found to be the most important tradition for the Dutch, followed by decorating a Christmas tree, followed by King’s Day on April 30th. (Blowing out birthday candles and eating raw herring were also in the top ten, the survey found.)

We enjoy traditions too, which is why we have the best of Douwe Egberts coffee, including Senseo pods, highlighted this week. Get 10% with no minimum when you order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*
