Dallmayr: Literally The Best Coffees In the World

Dallmayr as a trading company began in Munich more than 300 years ago. At the turn of the 20th century, the business was being run by Therese Randlkofer, widow of Anton, who had only purchased the building and store from Alois Dallmayr a mere two years before. Under Therese’s direction, the company was recognized as a key supplier to the royal courts of Bavaria, Germany and other European royal households.


Dallmayr-Bar-and-GrillThe business flourished so that the Dallmayr Delicatessen was soon recognized as one of the best in Europe. The store employed more than 70 people by 1912, and the space of the shop had been doubled by then. The Dallmayr coffee brand launched in 1933, unique at the time for roasting in the store with a unique electric roaster, and for storing coffee beans in hand-painted Nymphenburg porcelain containers.

Today, the shop is still open at the same location (rebuilt in 1950), offering over 6000 different products, along with sandwiches and salads. There is a two-starred Michelin restaurant, a café/bistro, and a raw bar, all on the original property. And, it’s still a family business.

Dallmayr coffee is flavorful with a smooth texture that is perfect for any time of day.

Dallmayr’s Quality From Bean To Cup


The first word that comes to mind when we drink Dallmayr is smooth, from the body to the finish. The beans are carefully selected from the best coffee-growing regions, then blended and roasted at the Dallmayr production facilities in the southeastern city of Geising, about a 45-minute drive due south from Dresden.

We really enjoy Dallmayr coffee, so here’s a sampling of our favorites.

Dallmayr Prodomo is the flagship product, with a strong aroma, a full-bodied taste and smooth finish. We have whole bean and ground. Try a milder version, Prodomo Naturmild (fine and soft, with a gentle aroma).

Dallmayr French Press Selection is a blend created with help from a popular French Press maker. The grind is extra coarse, which is perfect for the French Press maker. The blend is 100% Arabica beans, with a floral and spicy aroma.

Dallmayr Kilimanjaro is a single-origin coffee from Tanzania. These unique beans are grown at the foot of the famous and highest mountain in Africa, giving the coffee a balanced flavor with a light floral note.

For the Nespresso maker, we have 9 Capsa roasts in capsules, including newer special roasts in the Capsa line: Crema d’Oro (light, mild and balanced); Chocolat (notes of caramel and dark chocolate in a smooth, creamy espresso), and Vanilla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma). Other Capsa varieties: Artigiano (strong); Azzurro (intense); Ethiopia (medium); and Decaffeinato (medium/dark).

These coffees are perfect for coffee drinks, but we can tell you that any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own!

Campfire Coffee Gets Upgraded

lumeNot only can you make coffee while living off the grid, a new device will allow you to grind beans just before you brew your coffee. The company behind the device describes it as a Travel Automatic Coffee Grinder. It’s a coffee grinder, and looks and shines like a lantern. At full charge, this burr grinder can grind enough beans for 50 cups. It’s apparently quite popular for use while camping. The six LED lights stay bright for about 20 hours. Launched on Kickstarter 18 months ago, the devices are in high demand. They also offer a French press mug, light not included.

Marshmallow Coffee

peepsA national donut chain is offering an iced donut with a yellow marshmallow chick resting atop. The same chain is also adding the flavor of sugar-covered marshmallow chicks to hot coffee and espresso drinks. We aren’t sure what else to say about this, so you won’t hear another peep from us.

As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

German Coffee Roasting: Skillful. Artful. Taste-Full.

As we often say, Germany has been important in the history of coffee around the world. This week, we share two big events in German coffee, one just this year, and one that commemorates an event more than 200 years ago.


First, the 2019 German Barista and Latte Art Championship took place in Nuremberg this past January. The most skilled baristas from across the country competed for the title, and to be able to move on to the World Coffee Championships. Latte-Art-NurembergBarista participants had only fifteen minutes to prepare a total of twelve drinks for the panel of four judges. One drink had to be an espresso drink, one a milk drink, and one a signature drink. The harder part of the competition was that each contestant had to explain their coffee choices and their preparation to the judges watching. The Latte Art Championship, a separate event, had competitors creating intricate designs that were then judged on visual attributes, creativity, identical patters in pairs, contrast in patterns and overall performance. The winners, from coffee houses in Berlin and Hamburg respectively, will represent Germany in the world competitions. The World Barista Championship is held in April in Boston, MA while the World Latte Art Championship will be held in June in Berlin.


The second set of honors is from Google, for German chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, with an animated doodle (a special, temporary modification of the logo on its homepage). Runge discovered the chemical makeup of caffeine, after studying a bag of coffee beans given to him as a gift. The doodle ran last month on the anniversary of his birthday 225 years ago. The search engine used the doodle to show the chemistry and use of coffee in the logo, along with an animated image of someone sipping coffee and feeling the zing.

Germany is also the home to three of our special German brands: Eduscho, Tchibo and Davidoff. We recommend any and all of these brands for deliciously roasted coffee.

EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a wide selection from these three historic brands. Plus, you’ll get 15% off your order when you order Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff coffees, with no minimum purchase required.*

PS – We have Tchibo Black and White Instant Coffee already on sale and eligible for the discount above. Instant coffee is in most homes, and regularly drunk in Europe, in part because the instant coffee for the European market is richer and fuller. This blend of select beans is good black or with cream. The freeze-dried instant coffee is in 7oz glass jars, so you can keep it dry and cool, and then reuse the jar.

The Brands Of Tchibo

2015_Tchibo LogoTchibo is a top seller, with several premium products. Try Tchibo Exclusive, great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, or Gold Selection, an aromatic, unique, medium blend. Both are available in ground and instant. We have several other ground coffees from the Tchibo range: Feine Milde (fine and mild), Beste Bohne (100% Arabica), and Family (full and strong). Looking for a whole bean? Try Tchibo’s Sicilian Espresso roast.

2015_Eduscho logoEduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 1950’s, soon followed by stores in major German cities. Introduced in 1959, Gala coffee was sold in bakeries which further popularized the brand in German culture. In 1980, Gala coffee was renamed to Gala Number 1 (Nr. 1) to reflect its status in the market and its flavor and quality. Eduscho Mild, made from beans grown in tropical climates, is mild, smooth and balanced, with a gentle aroma. Both are available in ground, and both are Eduscho’s top sellers.

Davidoff-Cafe-Logo-NL-BlockDavidoff Café is a luxury brand that creates smooth and flavorful coffee. One of our newest items from Davidoff Café is Crema Intense instant coffee, a special coffee. Another special instant is the Limited Edition Elements and we have 3 other Davidoff instants too. Davidoff makes delicious ground coffee in Espresso 57, Fine Aroma and Rich Aroma. We also have 2 whole beans, Espresso 57 and Crème. Finally, for the Nespresso drinkers, we have 3 different roasts, plus a capsule variety package. All Davidoff products are available for the discount above.

When Is Coffee Not Coffee? When It’s Atomo Coffee!

A new startup company, Atomo Coffee, wants to make your morning coffee without any coffee at all. The company is working on a way to “replicate a standard cup coffee – down to the taste, aroma and even mouthfeel – all with natural ingredients, none of which are coffee beans.” Created by a microbiologist, the process is trying to break down coffee to a molecular level, then rebuilt it, except without using coffee. The ground coffee product is not bitter, but quite smooth, not too dark, not too light, the company claims. This supports their findings that in a blind taste test with university students, Atomo was the clear favorite for 70% of participants.

As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

Brand Highlight: Bewley’s Irish Coffee


The Bewley family began selling coffee in 1840 in Ireland after a few years of selling tea from China. Within 50 years, the family opened two cafes, but it wasn’t until 1927 that the flagship store opened on Grafton Street in Dublin. By the end of the 20th century, the company had more than 20 cafes in Ireland and six more around the world. Bewley’s runs the Rebecca’s Café chain in Boston, and moved to the west coast when they purchased the Java City brand. Bewley’s also runs a chain of hotels in the UK and in Ireland.
We have Bewley’s Irish Cream ground coffee. Made from 100% Arabica coffee, the flavored coffee has hints of Irish Cream liqueur. (No alcohol or sugar is in this coffee!) Try some today and use the discount above to really save.

St. Patrick’s Day in Europe


Regardless of where you spend the day, some things are universal: Wearing green; dancing; eating and drinking.

In the UK, Birmingham was one of the first cities in the UK to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The parade held in the city is one of the largest worldwide, just behind Dublin, Ireland and New York City.

Germany hosts a huge St. Patrick’s Day party in Munich, of course, where there is a large Irish community. Drinking is a big part of the day.

Dublin, Ireland is the where the party of all parties takes place! By sunrise, revelers are filling the streets, regardless of the weather. The parade starts at noon, but you’ll be too far back in the crowd to see anything if you don’t stake your spot two or more hours before. Before, during and after, they’ll be dancing in the streets.

Irish Coffee Recipes

Irish coffee at its most basic is made with hot coffee, whiskey, sugar and whipped cream. The drink is simple to make, so you can whip one up in just a few minutes. We included a list of fun ways you can jazz up your Irish coffee too.

Basic Recipeirish-coffee-shamrock

  • 1 cup fresh hot coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (brown, white, or substitute maple syrup)
  • 3 Tablespoons (1.5oz) Irish whiskey
  • Cream, slightly whipped


  1. Using a footed mug, pour the hot coffee to about ¾ full.
  2. Add the sweetener, and stir to dissolve. Blend in the whiskey.
  3. Gently pour the cream over the top of a spoon held above the mug so it falls on top gently. Enjoy!


* Add a garnish such as a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or shaved chocolate on top.

* Serve it on ice. Use a splash of cream instead of the whipped.

* Substitute Irish Cream liqueur for the whiskey.

* Substitute half-and-half for the cream.

* Add 2 teaspoons Crème de Menthe with the sugar and whiskey.

* Drizzle Crème de Menthe on the cream for a touch of green.

Douwe Egberts, The Netherlands, and Dutch Innovation

The Netherlands is home to Douwe Egberts, so we like to stay tuned into Dutch life, both historically and currently. This week, to celebrate the Netherlands, we have some current news from the region, hot off the presses!
747-haul-across-road-crOne of the things we love about the Netherlands is their commitment to recycling, reuse and sustainability. In this case, it’s the reuse of a Boeing 747, recently decommissioned, now purchased by a Dutch hotel company that owns properties in Amsterdam, Spain, and Turkey. Originally the aircraft was used by the Dutch airline KLM. The plane was driven for its final 8-mile journey to Badhoevedorp from Schiphol International Airport last month, which included making its way across a major highway that had been closed to traffic. Purpose-built roads helped the plane to its final destination. There was even a contest to win tickets to be able to see the journey live and in person, but the hotel chain ended up livestreaming the event anyway. The hotel is only teasing what they plan to do with the purchase, but have stated it will incorporate aviation history and art, plus 3D and more, elements. Anything reusable in the plane was taken by an aircraft recycling company.

LOST-ITEMS-UTRETCHTSpeaking of reuse, this story is about what happens when someone can’t get rid of something. In this case, we’re talking about a Dutch railway company being unable to destroy items lost and left on their trains. After three months of holding the items, those not claimed by the owners are destroyed. But the company was sometimes unable to destroy items, such as two artificial legs (one with a shoe and a sock), an insect collection, a set of babies’ christening robes and a cardboard gravestone. Now displayed in a special case at the railway museum in Utrecht, some items are more than 30 years old. The train company stated that last year, travelers left more than 100,000 items on trains, with more than sixty percent claimed. Bank cards and public transport cards make up about half of what they find.

TIQUETSFinally, in the Dutch spirit of efficiency, four Dutch entrepreneurs have devised a solution to decrease waiting times at museums and other cultural attractions. They developed Tiqets, a platform that allows customers to buy tickets in advance online, no printing or waiting required. The buyer then uses her phone to enter the venue, and the online ordering is available in seven languages. The system has partnered with Google, and is considered one of the best of ticketing systems.

We love the history of Dutch innovation, and that includes the coffees of Douwe Egberts. For more than 265 years, the family-based company has created innovative coffee blends that delight coffee drinkers worldwide. At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have Douwe Egberts made for the European market directly from the Netherlands. This week, get 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts and Senseo products from our site, and no minimum purchase is necessary.*

New National Park To Be Largest In Netherlands

Flevoland-NP-MAPJust a few days ago, provincial authorities in Flevoland, in the northeast of the Netherlands, approved a plan for consolidating several existing nature reserves, creatuing new green spaces and more, all resulting in what will be the largest national park in the Netherlands at over 25 square miles. The development is expected to take 20 years and cost close to 500m euros ($560m USD). The plan includes visitor centers, recreational facilities, restaurants and boat docks, allowing entrance into the park from many areas, where bikes and canoes can also be rented for exploration.

Be Nice Goes Country-Wide

Also just a few days ago, an advertising organization has launched a “Be Nice” campaign after performing research that found people were increasingly being mean to each other. Identifying unkind behavior such as tailgating, ignoring cashiers, harassing public transportation staff, and writing hateful messages on social media, the agency is ramping up the campaign over the next weeks. Reminders will be found on tv, movie theaters and on the radio.

Italian Coffee: Love At First Sip


Italy holds a key role in the history of coffee in Europe. It was in Italy, in fact, that the best-brewed coffee was produced the first-time using steam and pressure. We’re talking about espresso, of course. With the Industrial Revolution well under way, inventors were looking for ways to use steam to brew coffee more quickly. An Italian patent for a new-fangled device in 1884 describes “steam machinery for the economic and instantaneous confection of coffee beverage.” Unfortunately, that device was only used for the Turin General Exposition in the same year, where more than ten thousand exhibitors welcomed three million visitors.

patent-espresso-machineTwenty years later, Luigi Bezzerra, a manufacturer in Milan, invented the first of a series of commercial espresso machines. Early versions heated the water with a flame, making the regulation of heat and steam inconsistent, so the machine had a hard time catching on. Only when a clever designer added the first pressure release valve, along with a steam wand, did the machines start to be produced and used commonly. Introduced at the 1906 Milan Fair, “cafeé espresso“ was a hit, and similar coffee machines were soon popping up all over Italy.

This week, we are putting 3 big Italian roasters in the spotlight:

We have a range of coffees from these popular Italian brands, including two brands with Nespresso-compatible capsules, all perfect for a truly authentic Italian coffee experience.
