2017: All the Best with Douwe Egberts (And a sweet deal)


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*

Coffee From Germany is Delicious at

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.) We’ll sweeten the deal by giving you 10% off these venerated brands when you order $30 or more at*
