What comes to mind when you think of The Netherlands? Because The Netherlands is home to Douwe Egberts, we think of great coffee. There are also clogs, canals and windmills, of course! Across Holland, the second Saturday and Sunday in May find the Dutch celebrating National (Wind)Mill Day (which has grown into a weekend from its popularity). For centuries, windmills were a key part of the economy. Windmills were originally used to mill grain for food. Windmill machinery in the modern world often provides a way of generating electricity or is used to pump water for drainage and groundwater extraction. Of the 10,000 windmills operating in The Netherlands in 1850, about 950 are still standing, often run these days by volunteers. While the Landelijke Molendag is celebrated in The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and other countries in Europe also celebrate the impact of windmills around this same time of year. What’s the best way to see the windmills? Why on a bike, of course – yet another Dutch icon!

But Wait, There’s More…
We always have decaffeinated coffee available at the office and at our homes. You never know when someone will really want that cup of coffee but not want the caffeine. We prefer to serve one of the best decaffeinated coffees on the market: Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood Decaf.
Recently, we again received Aroma Rood Decaf (it had been temporarily discontinued a while ago) but now it’s back and available once again! This coffee has all the flavor and aroma of Aroma Rood, so it tastes great, smells great and best of all, you won’t miss the caffeine. We like this coffee so much, we are offering an additional $1 off per package in addition to our 10% discount! You can really save with Aroma Rood Decaf. Don’t forget we have the entire Aroma Rood line now: Regular, Blonde, Donker and Decaf. You can enjoy Aroma Rood coffee all day long!
