A Special Deal for Special European Coffee

JJ-Darboven-Twitter-Advert-YayEnjoy Better Coffee has the best of European coffee. This week, we highlight four unique coffees, all available from a premier coffee distributor, J.J. Darboven.

We know you will like any and all of these coffees, so we are offering 15% off your order of IDEE, Eilles, Mozart and Movenpick, no minimum required.*

Please Use Coupon Code: JJDRBVN15

*Discount valid from 10/22/17 through 11:59 p.m. EDT 10/24/17 with no minimum order on IDEE, Eilles, Movenpick, and Mozart products only at www.enjoybettercoffee.com. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

You Have To Try These Brands!

Let’s start with IDEE Kaffee, a wonderfully mild classic coffee, since it is a best-seller. The roasting process IDEE uses eliminates any undesirable elements with the beans prior to roasting, reducing bitter flavors that may result from standard roasting. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans. This combination of high-quality beans and gentle roasting results in a mild tasting coffee, with higher caffeine content. It is easy on the stomach while still tasting delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, is from Germany. Created from a distinctive and special blend of beans, Eilles Kaffee uses beans grown in the highlands, which assures a high-quality coffee. For more than 130 years, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand in Germany. In fact, Bavarian King Ludwig II served only Eilles coffee at his court during his reign in the late 1800s. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant. This coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. Try Eilles Kaffee Arabica in ground, made from 100% Arabica beans. The coffee is delicate and mild, with fruit and citrus notes. Eilles Kaffee is packaged in beautiful blue and gold, which evokes a royal court.

From Austria, we have a coffee named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild ground coffee, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee, available in ground and instant, which has a powerful aroma and taste.

We have saved the best for last! Movenpick is from Switzerland, this coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground, whole beans and instant, taking high-altitude beans from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste.

We also have Movenpick Espresso whole beans, which has a rich and strong taste and aroma, it makes the best espresso and espresso drinks. In fact, we are overstocked on Movenpick Espresso whole beans, so we cut the price even more, and are making them available for the weekly discount. You can’t miss out on this deal, so order today!

More About JJ Darboven

Johann J. Darboven founded a company in 1866 in Hamburg, Germany. As an innovator, he pioneered delivering roasted coffee in bags to his customers. Within a few years, he earned recognition for his 100+ varieties of coffee at an international horticultural exhibition. A generation later, his sons successfully marketed a coffee under the brand name IDEE (Idea). IDEE was (and still is) produced with a special refining process developed by the Hygienic Institute in Hamburg. The beans are treated to reduce irritants and bitter flavors while preserving the taste, and the caffeine of the coffee. The coffee was (and still is) extremely popular in Germany, and is today J.J.Darboven’s flagship product. The 1930’s found the company expanding into catering, then later into other countries. During the 60’s, one of the earliest coffee commercials shown on TV was for IDEE Kaffee. During the last few decades, J.J.Darboven has grown to include the brands described above. The company is still run by a fourth generation Darboven.

Rare Beans and An Exotic Formula Jack Up Coffee Prices at Some Cafes

In New York City, coffee shops abound. But at a Michelin-starred restaurant on Madison Park, that cup of coffee will cost $24. The restaurant’s coffee director will prepare the coffee tableside, using a dripper brewer (think amped-up Chemex coffee maker), all while timing the 3 stages of preparation carefully. The coffee used is a rare variety of beans from Colombia, and is described as having a creamy texture like dough or yogurt. The flavor is compared to blueberry pie. Another café we mentioned in a previous newsletter uses a machine that costs over $13k to prepare the $18 cup of coffee. Yet another coffee importer sells varieties of beans that are a steal at $100 a pound. We say OUCH! You can get any of our delicious coffees to brew at home – you can even grind your own beans if you prefer – and enjoy flavorful coffee for a great low price.

Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

de-amstrdm-header-wp

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Full moon over the Hofvijver - The Hague, The Netherlands


We love the Netherlands, and you will too. Enjoy a taste of the country with Douwe Egberts. Right now, get 15% off all of our Douwe Egberts and Senseo products at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: NETHERLANDS

*Discount valid from 10/15/17 through 11:59 PM EDT 10/17/17 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com for Douwe Egberts products with no minimum order. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale Douwe Egberts and Senseo products.

You Can’t Beat Our Prices on Whole Beans…

But you can grind the beans to brew a delicious coffee. Here are our favorite whole bean options from Douwe Egberts. The prices are already a good deal. Add in the discount and you can really save on a great coffee that you can drink every day.

We have three of Douwe Egberts best roasts in whole bean: Excellent Aroma, Mocca Aroma and Aroma Rood.

DE-WB-Advert-NL-Order-250CRExcellent Aroma is a medium/dark roasted coffee. It has an intense taste, yet is very smooth.

Mocca Aroma is a rich blend with an enticing aroma, and a strong body.

Aroma Rood smells delicious, has a full body, with spicy notes.

Try all 3 of these in the Douwe Egberts Whole Bean Variety Package. We even throw in a coffee scoop! This deal is a good buy made even better with the discount above.

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

German Court Defines Breakfast – And You’ll Be Surprised

If you have been to Germany, then you may already know that coffee and bread rolls are often served for breakfast. (Some hotels refer to this as a “continental breakfast.”) Well, you can be happy to know that a German court has just ruled that bread and coffee are not legally a breakfast unless there are meats, cheese, and, most importantly, butter for the bread.

German-Continental-Breakfast-Banner-butter

Why such a ruling, you ask? Well, interestingly, the issue came up when the local tax office in Muenster determined that a technology company in town was providing free breakfast to its employees, customers and guests by offering coffee and bread. The tax office said the free meal was compensation to employees, so the tech company had to pay tax on it. In fact, the tax man was trying to collect the equivalent of $1.75 per employee (there were about 80 employees in total) per day over a 3+ year period. The company took it to court, and just this week the local court ruled in favor of the company. That’s because the court said vending machine coffee (which it was) and bread without any toppings did not constitute breakfast, so the company couldn’t be taxed on this compensation. The court went on to define a real breakfast as including cold cuts, cheese, spreads, and at the very least, butter.

So now you have the legal definition of breakfast in Germany. Get some of our best German coffees, and you too can scoff at the tax man!


We have a wide selection of specialty German coffees that are 15% off, through Tuesday, October 10th, and no minimum order is required at www.enjoybettercoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: GERMAN15

*Discount valid from 10/8/17 through 11:59 p.m. EDT 10/10/17 with no minimum order on Dallmayr, Jacobs, Tchibo, Eduscho, Davidoff Cafe, Eilles and IDEE products only at www.enjoybettercoffee.com. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.


Eilles-Logo-WP-200From J.J. Darboven, we have Eilles Kaffee made with selected highland-grown coffee beans which give the coffee a naturally sweet flavor with many subtle flavor notes such as citrus, vanilla, chocolate and nuts. We carry Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant. Try Eilles Kaffee Arabica ground coffee for a delicate coffee with an irresistible aroma.

IDEE-Logo-WPJ.J. Darboven also supplies IDEE Kaffee, a classic mild coffee, made extra-flavorful by the special pre-roasting process that removes bitterness, and leaves all the caffeine, and then some. The taste is balanced, and smells wonderful. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees, with all the caffeine and, even better, both are easy on your stomach.

Dallmayr-Logo-WPDallmayr is smooth, flavorful and aromatic. Our range includes ground coffee in multiple varieties and whole beans, including two blends from the d’Oro line: Crema d’Oro and Espresso d’Oro. We also have our best-selling Capsa capsules that are Nespresso-compatible, in nine different roasts. And, did we mention this coffee is smooth? Trying is believing!

Jacobs-Logo-NL-BlockJacobs’ leading premium coffee is Krõnung, which means coronation in German. It is known for its aromatic qualities, mellow flavor and reasonable price. Like all Jacobs coffees, the blends are a perfect combination of beans roasted to enhance their flavors resulting in a unique taste. We carry Kronung in ground and whole beans. We also carry a range of Jacobs instant  coffees, including Krõnung, all very popular in Germany and beyond.

tchibo-icon-WPTchibo prides itself on innovation, and has been on the cutting edge of coffee marketing. First offering coffee via mail order, the company would grow into publishing a monthly magazine and opening a tasting café right next door to the roasting plant. Try Tchibo Exclusive Ground coffee, great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, and in Instant. Tchibo Beste Bohne, literally ‘best bean’, is available in ground and whole bean.

eduscho-icon-wpEdushco also sold coffee through the mail, but really excelled by selling its coffee in bakeries, which really strengthened the brand and its popularity. Eduscho Gala Nr. 1 Der Klassiker and Gala Mild ground coffees are top sellers. These coffees are great examples of the premium coffee Europe offers, with their balanced flavors, gentle aroma and smooth finish.

davidoff-icon-WPDavidoff Café makes coffee with the same care and devotion as is done with fine wine. Dedicated to the idea that “Having a taste for quality is having a taste of life,” the company produces coffee masterpieces to be enjoyed and savored. Try Nespresso-compatible capsules in Davidoff Café Elegance, a mild roast espresso or Davidoff Cafe Style, medium blend or Prestige, a strong espresso. Try one of Davidoff’s signature coffees. Espresso 57 is intense with a soft finish, Fine Aroma is mild with a delicate aroma and a soft texture or go bold with Rich Aroma, for an intense, full-bodied experience. All are available in ground coffee and instant.

Coffee Lovers Of Cisco

We started with a technology company in Muenster, Germany. Let’s end this newsletter with news of another tech business on the west coast of the USA. As part of International Coffee Day, employees of Cisco, an international company that manages IT networks, blogged about their love of coffee and their love of their company. From an employee from Costa Rica, who did not like coffee until college, to a manager in Poland who chooses her coffee based on her mood to another manager in Germany who says coffee makes her creative, all agree that coffee and Cisco are just “awesome.” One employee even mentioned the Virtual Coffee Meetings held within the company as a way to enjoy coffee in good company. We say enjoy coffee any way you like it!

International Coffee Day: 29 Sep – 1 Oct

EBC-Internatinal-Coffee-Day-2017

What’s not to like about a day that celebrates coffee and lasts, well, 3 days!

That’s right. International Coffee Day (ICD) began on Friday, and on Sunday, events will cap the big celebration. Activities have been taking place around the world.
The origins of this holiday are rather unclear. Although there are many references to such a day going back to the 1980’s, it is the International Coffee Organization (ICO) that takes credit for this third annual celebration. Two years ago, the day was launched in Milan, Italy, with 70 events in 35 countries. Last year, almost double the number of events took place in 54 countries. This year, it’s expected to be bigger than ever!

In the meantime, consider that www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a wide range of premium coffee from Europe made for the European market, so the flavor profiles are richer and more robust. Many of these companies are also focused on the same goals as International Coffee Day: Celebrate coffee, promote fair trade coffee and raise awareness of sustainability concerns.

We have Bristot, Dallmayr, Lavazza, Arvid Nordquist, Mount Hagan, Douwe Egberts and more, all companies that follow certified production guidelines from sustainability-based organizations such as UTZ Certified and the Rainforest Alliance. Find our range of sustainable products here.

Let’s celebrate European coffee and International Coffee Day! We’ll take 10% off your order of $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: COFFEEDAY

*Discount valid from 10/01/2017 through 11:59 PM EDT on 10/03/2017 for 10% off orders of $30 or more not including cost of shipping at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

 

A Little About The ICO and This Year’s Celebration

coffee-landmarks-color-200pxThe ICO is a proactive intergovernmental organization for the coffee industry comprised of representatives from seventy-seven countries. These countries account for 98% of the world’s coffee producers and 83% of the world’s coffee consumers. This year, the Specialty Coffee Association and World Coffee Research have joined forces to promote
the research group’s mission. WCR has been a leader in science-based research particularly with new coffee varieties, focused on quality, taste, and environmental resilience. In addition, this day will also kick-off the Sustainable Coffee Challenge here in the United States. The collaboration includes coffee companies, governments, and other groups across the coffee industry, all with the goal of making coffee the world’s first completely sustainable agricultural product.

Death Wish Coffee Recalled For Being Lethal

death-wish-coffee2The USDA has recalled cans of Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew because of fears of botulism. There may be a concern with the brewing process leading to the growth of the toxin. The coffee has approximately twice the caffeine of normal coffee. We’re all for coffee names reflecting the roast, the taste or its effect, but not in this case.

 

Virtual Coffee Meet-Up Celebrates ICD

One way to celebrate the big day this weekend is to post a picture of yourself enjoying a cup of coffee, alone or with friends, on Sunday, Oct 1. The hope is that people all over the world will meet-up at this virtual café at Darkshot Coffee on Facebook. BTW, details of your coffee are required with the post.
