We talk a lot about coffee – here at the office, in our newsletters, on our Facebook page, at home…
This week, we want to focus on 4 delicious brands that we know you will want to try (or stock up!). But first, a quick reminder about how to talk coffee. There are four key elements when we discuss a coffee:
Aroma: Not only is this the smell, but taste is also a big part of this element.
Flavor: When we talk about the flavor profile, we are talking about the flavor compounds. Think of it similar to wine-tasting, though wine has only 200 flavor compounds, while coffee has 800! (So much to explore; so little time!)
Body: This is known as “mouth feel” – how does the consistency feel in your mouth? (Think of the consistency difference between fat-free milk and whole milk.)
Finish: How does it taste after you drink it? Does it have a flavor? Is it different from the taste when you were drinking it?
Even better, you are going to get a whopping 20% off your order of these coffees with no minimum order at www.enjoybettercoffee.com.*

With these in mind, let’s get pouring over some of JJ Darboven’s premium coffees.
Our first tasting is IDEE Kaffee. Imported from Germany, this coffee is very gentle for sensitive stomachs. The green coffee beans are steamed prior to roasting to achieve a clean flavor – just the beans and the magic that occurs from roasting. IDEE Kaffee ground coffee, in 17.6oz packs, tastes smooth, with a mellow flavor profile, with a light body and a smooth finish. The aroma is fresh and will immediately transport you to a European sidewalk café. We also have IDEE Kaffee Gold Express instant coffee has all the same flavors, just as delicious and even more convenient, as ground.
Next up: Eilles Kaffee, also imported from Germany, was once a supplier of coffee to the Royal Bavarian court. Try Eilles Kaffee Arabica ground coffee for its mild aroma with flavors of citrus. It is full-bodied and a nice, slightly sharp finish. We also have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet coffee in ground and whole beans, with a full-bodied taste and flavor, with a strong and aromatic scent. The finish has hints of toast. We also have Eilles Gourmet in instant, with the same flavor profiles, aroma and finish.
Try Movenpick, from Switzerland. The high-quality beans are roasted to achieve a perfectly balanced coffee, medium bodied, with a mild finish. We have Der Himmlische made with 100% Arabica beans in ground, whole beans and instant. We also have Movenpick Espresso whole beans, which is a rich and strong coffee, perfect alone as espresso and in cappuccinos and lattes.
Our last offering from JJ Darboven is Mozart Kaffee, named after the great composer, because Mozart Kaffee is a well-balanced composition. Mozart Mild ground coffee is light and delicate in flavor, body and finish. Mozart Intensive is a strong, intense coffee, full-bodied with a smooth feel and a surprising finish. Mozart Intensive is available in ground and instant coffee.

Who drinks the most coffee in the world? For 2016, it was the Finns, according to the International Coffee Organization. In Finland, adults drink more than 26 pounds (approximately 78 gallons) of coffee a year. Other northern European countries such as Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Sweden are usually in the top 10 coffee-consuming countries list too.
Perhaps these countries produce delicious coffee because the people like good coffee. Or maybe it is the long, cold winters that spurred the coffee drinking. We can’t say why, but we do know the coffees we have from Sweden and Finland are the epitome of Nordic coffees.
Up for some more unusual and surprising facts about Scandinavia? Read on!
Danish pastry is not from Denmark. It is from Austria. · Sweden’s “Moose Crossing” road signs are apparently the most popular souvenir in Sweden, as many are reported stolen every year.
Finns love a sauna – in fact, they claim to have invented the sauna (as do the Swedes). With over 2 million saunas in the country, that’s one for every 2.5 people.
The Swedish are very inventive. The zipper, the pacemaker and the computer mouse are Swedish. So are Ikea and H&M stores.
Finland is known as the “land of a thousand lakes.” In fact, it has more than 180,000, more lakes in relation to a country’s size than any other country. Finland has one lake for every 26 people.
Norwegians created the World Barista Championships, first held in 2000 in Monaco.
An old Icelandic superstition says drinking piping hot coffee made you ugly and colder coffee made you prettier. Additionally, if you put the cream in your coffee before sugar, you wouldn’t get married for seven years.

Douwe Egberts has always been an innovative leader since the company’s humble beginnings more than 260 years ago. Young Egbert Douwes ran a local grocery shop selling fresh-roasted coffee in Joure, Netherlands in the early days of the company. Today, the company is a world sales leader and the most-enjoyed coffee in the Netherlands. Between then and now, the company introduced its brand’s iconic red seal, instant coffee sold in jars, a single-serve coffee machine named Senseo, a purchase loyalty system, and Pickwick Tea. Douwe Egberts also advertised on a new device called television, received a Royal designation from the Queen on their 200th anniversary, and built a massive headquarters and nearby processing plant. And, that’s just to name a few.
At www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we appreciate the care and thought that goes into innovation, and being a world leader in coffee production. Enjoy the taste, and the deal, we have on Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum purchase required.*
