Douwe Egberts & Senseo Know Good Coffee

The Netherlands International Team (circa 1905)

Did you know that as you read this the World Cup is happening in Brazil? Since early June, soccer teams from all around the world, including the U.S., have been competing in Brazil to move forward in the race to the championship finals. But did you know that the Netherlands is one of the better teams playing in this World Cup series? They are predicted to make it to the quarterfinals this time. The Dutch have been a powerhouse on the field (or shall we say ‘pitch’?) for decades, when some say they reinvented the game with a new focus on passing. In fact, the team has been referred to as “Clockwork Orange” for their precision passing. World Cup Soccer championships occur every four years, since 1930, except during WWII, this being the 20th World Cup. The Dutch teams have been in the finals 4 times in World Cup history, thrice making it to second place (Runner-up). When you consider that this is only the 20th time the World Cup is taking place, that is not bad for a country of only 17 million people. So far this year, the Orange hammered Spain 5-1, shut out Chile at 2-0, won by 1 over both Australia and Mexico, fans continue to cheer them on against Costa Rica as we go to press.  (UPDATE:  The Netherlands won the match in a dramatic penalty shoot-out!)
