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?

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.
