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.*

We Have Traditional Italian Coffee

Lavazza “There’s More To Taste”

Lavazza is one of Italy’s favorite coffees, with more than forty percent of the retail market. Begun in 1895, the company is still owned by the Lavazza family four generations later. Today, the company holds sixth place in sales in the global coffee industry. We offer a wide range of Lavazza coffee, including ground and whole bean coffee.

Segafredo “The Most Authentic Coffee”

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. Holding second place in the retail Italian coffee market, Kimbo is dedicated to traditional Neapolitan roasting techniques, high-quality beans and constantly-improving
processes.

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.*

FOR THE COFFEE LOVER:

If you know a true coffee lover – or you just know someone who should enjoy better coffee – then we have the goods!

Get 1-2 bags of whole beans and include an espresso in ground or whole bean (our prices are that good!). Give the coffee with one of our beautiful stovetop Espresso Makers and you’ve upgraded the coffee experience for someone special!

Our favorite way to enjoy coffee is with the French Press, a classic. Add in any coffee and a cup or two, and you have the perfect coffee gift!

For the person who owns (or is getting) a Nespresso machine, we have a wide range of Nespresso-compatible capsules at prices that can’t be beat! We have several great brands of capsules, including Caffe Vergnano, Kimbo, Dallmayr and the beautifully-boxed Davidoff capsules, along with several other brands. We also have capsules for Segafredo Espresso machines.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE LOVER:

We have some delicious chocolate options for gifts. Give L’Ancienne Instant Chocolate, made with only 3 ingredients (sugar, cocoa and vanilla), imported from France. Include a Kusmi Spicy Chocolate Tea for a real twist of chocolate. We have Chocolate Butter cookies and Almond Cake with Chocolate to round out the chocolatey goodness.

FOR THE TRAVELER:

Offer a virtual tour of a foreign land. Select a coffee or two from Germany, Italy or France. Add a glass or cup and saucer or a French Press or stovetop espresso maker. Throw in a box or two of cookies or other sweets and you have a simple, yet creative and delicious gift created especially for the recipient. Try these combos:

Delicious German coffees, Dallmayr and Jacobs, given with a double walled cup, or two, and a French Press maker.

The Italian coffee experience could include Lavazza, Kimbo, Miscela D’Oro, Segafredo and/or Hausbrandt. Add a matching cup and a package of Mayora Coffee Joy Biscuits and the recipient will think they’ve gone to Rome!

A trip to France should include delicious Carte Noire coffee, a beautiful French Press maker and cake from Biscuiterie De Provence and assorted butter cookies from Pierre Biscuitere.

Know someone who travels often? Give them one of our delicious instant coffees. In Europe, instant coffee has a different flavor profile and is extremely popular. In addition to iconic brands such as Davidoff, Tchibo, Douwe Egbert and Jacobs, we have large and smaller packs of instant coffee, some that include a ceramic mug. We also have instant coffee that already has the milk and sugar added, making it super-convenient.

Can’t decide? On our site, select Coffee By Type, then Coffee Gift Items, and choose from a variety of tins, double-packs, gift sets with mugs and/or scoops. Several of our gift sets allow you to choose from a selection of coffees. Still not sure what to give? Give a gift certificate, increments begin at $15, and let them choose themselves.

Need more ideas? Chat with us live at our site and we’ll help!

We are offering FedEx Two Business Day and Standard Overnight options at an additional cost for quicker delivery, should you need that.
