Many countries and languages have words that are difficult to translate. In the Netherlands, home to Douwe Egberts, the Dutch cherish something that is “gezellig.” The word is not easily translated because there is no comparable term in English, and because it means different things depending on what you are doing. It can mean cozy, quaint, fun, and can apply to anything (person, place or event) that includes feelings of belonging, love, and contentment. In fact, it’s the element of belonging that is key here. It’s time spent with friends and family, eating and drinking and enjoying being together. With the holidays approaching, what better time of year to find your own gezellig moments.

Douwe Egbert Coffees We’re Loving Right Now…
Our range of Douwe Egberts products include a variety of roasts available in ground, whole bean, instant, and our popular value packs.
Have you tried Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee yet? It’s on the darker roast side, with spice and cocoa notes. We have Mocca Aroma in ground and whole beans. Just a reminder that this Mocca coffee is not the kind of coffee/chocolate drink you order at a café, but instead refers to the type of bean. Try it, you’ll surprise yourself.
Another standard around here is Douwe Egberts Black. We have this dark, rich coffee in ground. One of the brand’s most popular coffees, it had been discontinued a few years back, but since being available again, it’s proven to be a top-seller.
If you prefer a lighter coffee, try Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground. The Arabica blend is silky, smooth, with very subtle notes of fruit, and a mild flavor.
With the holidays coming, grab a Douwe Egberts Premium Coffee Variety package with four of their top sellers, including the three above (plus Excellent Aroma). The four-pack of 8.8oz./250g coffees is great for sharing or giving as a holiday gift, and with the discount above, you are really saving big!
The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!
