Explore The Brands of Tchibo

This week, we are highlighting 3 of our premium German brands: Tchibo, Davidoff, and Eduscho. Let’s look at how these brands grew into the icons of coffee they are today.

Tchibo-Banner-082519-cup

Tchibo is German coffee producer that started selling coffee via mail orders more than 60 years ago. The name Tchibo comes from the word ‘Tchiling’ (the name of a founding partner) and the German word for ‘bean’ (bohne). Thanks to its popularity, Tchibo opened a store next door to their roasting plant to sell coffee directly to customers. Their coffee was sold in new see-through containers and customers were given samples of brewed coffee to allow patrons to choose their favorites. Within a few years, there were more than 70 shops in Germany with a new one opening almost every week. Over the next 30 years, Tchibo opened roasting plants and coffee shops in Britain, Poland, Hungary and Russia. Today, Tchibo has one of the largest chains of coffee cafés with over 1000 retail locations worldwide.

Davidoff-espresso-advertZino Davidoff (1906-1994) lived his life with the belief that a taste for quality was a taste for life. Coffee was one of his greatest passions, starting each day with an espresso or two. The spirit of Zino lives on in the company as a source of inspiration and as a mandate for the business. Because only the finest quality will do, you can be sure that Davidoff coffee is as close to perfection as Zino would want.

Eduard Schopf began the family business, Eduscho coffee, in 1924 in Germany with a direct focus on fresh coffee, from the beans to the preparation. Because mail was the quickest way to reach a lot of customers, Eduscho began as one of the earliest mail order business. Eventually the business had stores in all major German cities and in bakeries, and the brand hurtled into a national presence. Around the turn of this century, Eduscho was acquired by Tchibo and expanded into Europe – Slovakia, Poland, Austria and Britain.

Germany Celebrates Fall of Wall 30th Anniversary

berlin-wallA week-long city-wide festival in Berlin this November will commemorate when the Berlin Wall was taken down. At sites across the city, installations will tell the story of how it happened, with images, films, and sound. The event has been coordinated with museums, memorial sites, educational and artists groups, with different elements of the story told at each stop. At one stop, Berliners who were separated because of the wall tell their stories; at another stop, a gallery, experience an artistic takeover of the Wall. On November 9th, the date the Wall fell, stages across the city will showcase renowned artists connected to the events that year, and those whose work represents freedom. More than 100 events are planned, including discussion panels, guided tours, readings, theatre productions, and poetry slams. A free app for your cell or tablet has been developed that will use augmented reality technology at the wall location for those who want to see what the wall looked like at the time on their device.

Dallmayr’s Expertise Is Still A Family Tradition

Munich has been home to Dallmayr Coffee since the early 18th century. Originally founded by a local merchant, Alois Dallmayr bought the enterprise around 1870. A few decades later, the original store location had grown into one of the leading delicatessens in Europe. The company headquarters is in the old part of Munich, with descendants of Dallmayr still working and holding shares in the company.

Munich has been home to Dallmayr Coffee since the early 18th century. Originally founded by a local merchant, Alois Dallmayr bought the enterprise around 1870. A few decades later, the original store location had grown into one of the leading delicatessens in Europe. The company headquarters is in the old part of Munich, with descendants of Alois still working and holding shares in the company.
Because Munich is such a special place, especially in the history of coffee in Germany, we thought the newly-opened exhibition at the Deutsches Museum was worth a look.

Kosmos-Kaffee-BannerThe museum is an interactive science and technology space, so the new “Kosmos Kaffee” (Cosmos Coffee) exhibit opening last month takes a look at the biology, the chemistry, and the social sciences of coffee. Some might say the universe of coffee.

You can take a walk through the history of espresso machines, which will remind you of space-age design with all the chrome and knobs. They even offer an app for your phone where you can grow a coffee plant to harvest, and see how many cups of coffee your plant will make. (It’s an app; what can we say?)

An Italian manufacturer of professional espresso and cappuccino equipment which happens to own the largest collection of equipment dedicated to coffee culture, tech and design, has loaned some of their collection to the exhibit. Highlights of the collection include a horizontal espresso machine from the 1940s; a “horned” behemoth that looks more like a motorcycle engine, and a shiny model from the ‘60s, iconic and revolutionary for its extraction technology.


Dallmayr and Munich will always be connected in special ways. Our special this week is for Dallmayr coffee, so we’ll give you 15% off your order of Dallmayr products from our site.*

PLEASE USE COUPON CODE: DALLMAYR

*Discount valid from 8/11/19 through 11:59PM ET on 8/13/19 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com on Dallmayr products with no minimum purchase required. Offer not redeemable for cash. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products. Questions? Call us at 800.582.6617 Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM ET.

Dallmayr Quality is The Dallmayr Tradition

If you enjoy a smooth coffee, then you must have tried Dallmayr Prodomo, their most popular product. The coffee is smooth from the first sip to the finish, and we have whole beans, ground, plus a decaf roast and a mild roast, both in ground.

For a truly velvety coffee, Dallmayr Crema D’Oro is balanced, smooth, with spicy aroma notes. The 100% Arabica beans are gently roasted, making a delicious espresso, or to be used as a base for lattes and cappuccinos.

Dallmayr-NL-Advert-081119

Dallmayr also has capsules for the Nespresso machine. We have a range of 9 roasts in our Capsa line:

Artigiano capsules are 7 out of 10 on the intensity scale. This complex roast has subtle notes of fruit and nut.

Barista capsules have an intensity of 8 with cocoa notes, dense crema and a smooth mouth feel.

Ristretto capsules are 10 on the intensity scale, so expect full and intense flavors, including fruit and spice along with sweet notes. Perfect for making a short-shot (ristretto).

Try Lungo Belluno, with an intensity of 5, to enjoy a soft, balanced Arabica. Notes of vanilla, floral and nuts make this a special drink. Try Lungo Azzuro, intensity 8, if you are looking for something a little stronger.

We also have Crema d’Oro (light, mild and balanced); Lungo Ethiopia (medium); Decaffeinato (medium/dark), and their Prodomo. All of these capsules are available, along with our entire Dallmayr line, for the discount offered above. If you have a Nespresso machine, do not miss this deal!

Researchers Find Bamboo Reusable Coffee Cups May Carry Risks

We have previously written about Germany (and other European countries) that are actively working to support sustainable business process by supplying reusable coffee cups to replace the standard paper to-go cups. There are a variety of systems in which the cups are purchased – or would that be rented? – filled with coffee, and then returned back to the café at another time. There they are washed and sterilized. A German consumer research foundation studying the impact of bamboo cups tested them with hot coffee, and found that the temperature at which coffee is drunk causes resin from the cup to leach into the liquid. The group published their findings last month, but encouraged people to use other types of reusable cups made from other materials.

Beat The Heat With a Unique Coffee Treat!

Writer Jane Austen wrote to her sister in late summer 1796:

Jane-Austin-Hot-Weather

While it is hot in some parts of the USA, Europe has been experiencing record-setting heat for two months now. In June, a city in France endured an all-time high of 115⁰F, while several other countries, including Austria, Luxembourg, and Germany, logged new high temperatures too, making June the hottest on record. July was much of the same – forest fires, buckled train tracks, air quality warnings, and drought-like conditions. Late in July, several countries issued “red alerts” as the temperatures increased. Britain logged 101⁰F in Cambridge; the Netherlands had 104⁰F in the south, breaking a record more than 50 years standing. Germany hit a record with 106⁰F in the western region of the country. Many homes and businesses do not have air conditioning, and with water-usage restrictions and dry fields, it seems most Europeans are just trying to stay cool.

iced-coffee-short-blue-and-white-strawsWhile there is not much that can be done about the temperatures, there are plenty of things that someone can do to beat the heat – including our favorite, iced coffee! Summer is perfect for this treat. We have a recipe with some suggestions on the newest trends in iced coffee below, but in the meantime, we are offering a sweet deal on our coffee and products.

Coffee Trends This Summer

Summer is the season of iced coffee, and this season’s big trend, again, is cold-brew coffee. Those who love it say cold-brew is particularly smooth because the cold water slowly extracts the coffee from the beans. (Cold-brew is easy to make, and of course you
can use any of our coffees. See below.)

iced-coffee-summer-trendsBut this summer, look for unique styles of the brew, new and surprising flavors, and techniques that kick-up your coffee drink a notch. Here are a few:

–Floral flavors such as rose, violet, and elderflower
–Summer herbs, added to simple syrup, such as mint, basil, and rosemary
–Using different varieties and blends of coffees
–Infusing the cold-brew with surprising flavors such as juniper and agave; cocoa; pepper; vanilla bean, and vodka

How To Make Cold-Brew Coffee

cold-brew1. Use high-quality beans (we have plenty from which to choose). Grind the beans semi-coarse.

2. Stir ¾ cup grounds with 4 cups of water, and put in the fridge for 6-18 hours to make a concentrate.

3. Strain in a sieve lined with a coffee filter. For concentrate, use one-part concentrate with two-parts water to start. You can adjust the proportions of water and grounds depending on how you prefer your coffee. Enjoy!
