A man from Austria opens a coffee roasting business in the heart of the Italian coffee shipping district. In 1892 Hermann Hausbrandt started his business as one of the first real artisan coffee roasters. He chose to build his enterprise in Trieste, a seaport in northeastern Italy and one of the most important ports during a remarkably prosperous time in European history.
Hausbrandt’s success grew from being able to produce, package and ship quickly the highest quality coffee while maintaining consistency and freshness, something that had not been done well up to this point. His company became the first to package coffee in sealed metal containers. Hausbrandt Trieste 1892 produces consistently fresh, aromatic and delicious coffee. We would expect no less from the company that first used electric roasters for their beans and marketed their own coffee cups back in the 1930’s. We like the fact that the same family line is still involved in the business today, still based in Italy and still committed to producing the highest quality coffee. The brand is available in more than 70 countries around the world.
We are so excited to announce that we now have the full range of Caffe Hausbrandt including several roasts available in ground and even more choices of whole beans. We even have 2 styles of Hausbrandt cups. Buy Hausbrandt at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com and we will take 10% off those products.*

Winter in The Netherlands can be very cold. In fact, January and February are the coldest months of the year. While many of us might prefer a mild winter, the Dutch actually want it to be cold – really cold. But why, you ask? So the canals freeze, of course, which means that residents and visitors can ice skate on the canals!
Skating on canals is an iconic image for the country, but would you be surprised to know that for many years, it did not get cold enough for the canals to freeze? In 2014, the weather was the warmest on record, so no skating then. In 2012, in February, a deep-freeze hit the area that was colder than it had been for a decade, so the canals were open for skating. That year, even canal boats were grounded because of the ice.
This year, so far, it has been warm in Amsterdam, but there is hope that starting this weekend, the temperatures are going to be more winter-like. If all goes well, and the cold continues, skaters could be hitting the ice by February.
