A Pour-Over by Poursteady

poursteadyA pour-over is a single cup of coffee made by putting ground coffee in a filter over an empty cup, then pouring very hot water over the grounds. It is a common drink prepared at cafes around America. In New Orleans, there is a coffee shop where the barista, named Poursteady, works diligently making pour-overs all day – and he could do it all night if they were open. That’s because Poursteady is a robot, actually a sophisticated coffee machine that is precise, reliable and speedy. Sure, he’s fast, but do we have to tip him?

The Brands of J.J. Darboven

On a map of western Europe, you’ll notice Germany and Switzerland nestled together. It turns out that these countries not only share a short border, and a language, but also an appreciation of good coffee, from bean blending, roasting, packaging to drinking.

While these two neighbors differ wildly in size and population, they both are homes to makers of fine coffee, including the 3 brands we are highlighting this week. Plus, we have a great deal on these brands: Eilles Kaffee, IDEE Kaffee, and Movenpick. These iconic brands are part of another coffee leader, J.J. Darboven, which sources premium green coffee from only the best growing regions in the world. The business is built on quality and stability, so you know you’ll be buying the best coffee available.


Eilles Kaffee and IDEE Kaffee are both based in Germany. For more than 130 years in Germany, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand, even with Bavarian royalty. Try Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, and instant, and you’ll appreciate the distinct aroma and flavor.

IDEE Kaffee is delicious, mild coffee, with a higher caffeine content. Because of special processing, the coffee is very gentle on the stomach. We have balanced IDEE Kaffee in ground and aromatic Gold Express instant coffee.

Movenpick, our Swiss offering, gently roasts the coffee beans using a traditional Swiss recipe. We have Movenpick Der Himmlische coffee in ground, whole beans, and instant, which is a flavorful roast from high-altitude beans.

We also have Movenpick Nespresso-compatible capsules, from Ristretto, to Intenso, to Lungo Crema and Lungo Classico. Use the discount below to really save on these capsules.

This week, we’ll give you 20% off your order of these delicious coffees, but it won’t last, so order today!*

The Best Coffee To Order…

In Germany, filtered coffee is by far the most popular drink. Almost three-fourths of the population drinks coffee every day. Two-thirds of Germans drink 2-5 cups of coffee per day.

In Switzerland, the rule is espresso, with milk or whipped crème. Similar to their German counterparts, the average Swiss drinks 2-5 cups of coffee per day.

ISS Re-Supply Includes Strong Coffee

Late last week, SpaceX was scheduled to launch a rocket to the ISS with almost 6,000 pounds of supplies. Part of that payload is 60 pouches of Death Wish coffee, a specially-made instant version. The pouch has a nozzle that is used to add 8 ounces of hot water. The astronauts add an elongated straw to drink the prepared brew. The coffee maker claims the coffee has twice the caffeine of a regular cup of coffee. We wondered if this is a death wish for the ISSpresso.

Vacuum Maker Designs Futuristic Coffee Maker

dyson-concept-coffeemakerIt’s only a conceptual design, but the Dyson Coffee Maker has a motor that brews coffee in a powerful way, and it looks pretty cool too. Part of the design includes a window that allows everyone to see the internal components at work, which are similar to the visible ones on the brand’s ball-type vacuum. It’s compact, with a tubular design, so it fits in small places.

The Brands of Tchibo In The Spotlight

Coffee Anyone?

You’ve just finished a late meal with good friends and family when coffee is brought to the table. Are you the person who is first to get a cup? Or maybe you’re the person who wouldn’t think of drinking even a sip of coffee in the evening for fear of being awake all night? Do you know someone who can drink a cup of coffee and then go to bed and sleep like a baby?


Well, it turns out that we each have our own sensitivity to caffeine, according to a new report published this month by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee. The report used existing research to study the way caffeine is metabolized, that is processed, by the body. Per the author, an individual’s response to caffeine is likely driven by 2 genetic factors: the speed of the liver metabolizing caffeine, and a genetic variant that makes the nervous system more sensitive to caffeine. The author, a physician, categorized three levels of caffeine sensitivity: High, Regular and Low. For those with livers that metabolize caffeine more slowly, and when caffeine binds strongly in the nervous system, even a small amount of caffeine can cause sleep problems; these people have high sensitivity. Low sensitivity to caffeine means you metabolize caffeine quickly, and you can probably drink coffee close to bedtime. For those with regular sensitivity to caffeine, you can drink 2-5 cups of coffee during the day without any issues then or at night. Some of that group may even be able to drink coffee in the evening.

coffee-DNA-cropSo how we react to coffee is part of our genetic make-up, just like the color of our hair and eyes. A few other factors affect how you metabolize caffeine, which we listed below.

Factors Affecting Caffeine Metabolism

From the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, there are various factors which influence how the body handles caffeine. Besides genetics, some liver diseases, some prescription medicines, dietary factors, alcohol and smoking affect the speed at which you metabolize caffeine.

Army Proposes Safe Caffeine Doses

Caffeine-molecule-armyA study from the Army Medical Research and Material Command in Maryland has developed an algorithm to determine when and how much caffeine an individual should consume. The research claims that the tool can help improve alertness by up to 64 percent while still consuming the same total amount of caffeine. Alertness was defined as reaction time. Researchers used sleep/wake times along with the person’s maximum allowed caffeine to produce the optimum caffeine dose schedule.

Jacobs Coffee: Dream With Your Eyes Open

The people behind Jacobs coffee advertise the “extraordinary power” of their coffee’s aroma. To Johann Jacobs, founder of Jacobs coffee, aroma was the key that unlocked the magic of coffee. Aroma, to Jacobs, is more than a mark of high quality, it’s a promise of excellence that the company still keeps today.

As you may know, Jacobs is now part of the company Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE).

The combined company has $7bn in revenue, making them an industry leader worldwide. Interestingly, JDE recently bought an online coffee business that sells freshly roasted beans costing up to $54 per package. (We prefer European coffee.

Dutch Airlines Serves Dutch Coffee

de-KLM-Airlines-partnerEarlier this month, airline KLM announced that they will be serving a special sustainable coffee blend from Douwe Egberts on their flights and in airport lounges. The blend was chosen specifically to taste as good in flight as it does on the ground. Air travelers know that the altitude of flights significantly impacts the aroma and taste of coffee, so getting that delicate balance right is key. We’re just surprised that it took these two Dutch standards this long to partner up.

Bikini-Clad Baristas Face Backlash

A new coffee shop in Texas is getting bad press after advertising that the female baristas wear only bikinis. Social media exploded with complaints, criticism and accusations of sexism. One comment on Facebook summarized what most people think about this gimmick: If your product is good, you don’t need employees to wear revealing clothes.

Dallmayr Kaffee In The Spotlight: Drink Up!


A guy walks into a German bar. While this may sound like the start of a joke (and maybe it is!), but in this case, we want you to think about what you might drink after walking into a German bar.

This week, we’re talking about a great German coffee, Dallmayr. But we can’t talk about great German coffee without talking about German beer. That’s because Germany is a top consumer of both coffee and beer. Per person, in Germany, consumption of beer does not even approach consumption of coffee: 28 gallons of beer vs 43 gallons of coffee vs 40 gallons of water per year.

Coffee and beer have been around for centuries. Both have been treated as special drinks through the years, yet were banned at times, revered at other times, reserved only for the wealthy at times, and today, are considered specialty, artisanal beverages.

Hildegard-of-BingenIt’s useful to remember that beer was drunk because for much of that time, water was often contaminated. Even Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess from the 11th century, encouraged the drinking of beer for health and safety reasons. Today in Germany, more than 1300 breweries produce more than 5000 brands, more than any other country in the world!

Meanwhile, coffee proliferation contributed to the spread of a new business, coffee houses, where politicians, artists, writers, and women found company and similar-thinking neighbors and friends. Meeting there even generated a bit of gossip!

dm-restaurantDallmayr is also a key player in the bar scene of Munich, where they offer several options for bar drinks. In addition to their Café Bistro, and a Bar & Grill, they also have a Michelin-starred restaurant. And, yes, they offer beer, wine and of course their delicious coffees.

This week, in honor of National Beer Day here in the U.S. (April 7), we are offering a deal on Dallmayr that you will want to toast: Get 15% off your order of this great coffee brand with no minimum order at!*

Please use coupon code: DALLMAYR

*Discount valid from 4/08/2018 through 11:59PM ET on 4/10/2018 at with 15% off no minimum order required on Dallmayr Kaffee products. 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: The Best Coffees In the World

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 roasted at the Dallmayr production facilities in the southeast city of Geising, about a 45-minute drive from Dresden.

These are our best sellers:


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.

We also have 3 very special blends back in stock: Neiva, Kilimanjaro and Granverde. All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs.

Dallmayr Neiva is grown in the coffee belt of Columbia. A single-origin coffee, this medium roast is spicy, with a fresh taste and citrus notes.

Try Dallmayr Grandverde, an organic ground coffee blend from Latin America. The coffee has a delicate nutty taste with a soft finish.

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

For the Nespresso maker, we have 11 Capsa roasts of capsules, including newer roasts in the Capsa line: Crema d’Oro (light, mild and balanced); Prodomo (the flagship blend, strong aroma, full-bodied and smooth); Chocolat (notes of caramel and dark chocolate in a smooth, creamy espresso), and Vanilla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma). The flavored coffees are perfect for coffee drinks (see below), but any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own (milk’s optional)!

These Coffee Drinks Are Easy and Tasty

brown-sugar-caramel-latteTry Capsa Chocolat or Vanilla as the base for this aromatic and sweet treat. Add an ounce of Kahlua, ½ ounce of brandy and a dash of cinnamon. Top with sweetened whipped cream and sit back to enjoy.

These flavored coffees also make a great Brown Sugar and Caramel Latte. Add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the prepared coffee, plus ¼ cup half-and-half, with a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. (Frothing the cream makes it even dreamier!)

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

J.J. Darboven: A Company Dedicated to Gourmet Coffee


This past week marked the 152nd year anniversary of the start of a small shop in Hamburg, Germany. That shop, owned by Johann Joachim Darboven, sold bread, milk, and a novelty of the time, roasted coffee beans. When he started shipping packaged coffee and sugar cubes to customers using the postal system, the legacy was set.

Within a few years, the company was offering 144 coffee varieties identified by origin and trade name at an international horticulture exhibition, and the company won the silver medal. When J.J. passed away 40 years later, his two sons took over a company that had already grown far beyond Hamburg. During WW I, the company faced a lack of green coffee beans, so they developed a popular drink that could replace coffee. This drink contained grain, chicory, sorghum, sugar beet, and roasted figs. But the brothers did not stop their innovation there.

IDEE-Kaffee-WS-FlyerA decade later, they hired a food chemist to develop a coffee that was easy to digest, yet still tasted the same, and had the same amount of caffeine. Using the already-established brand name ‘Idee’, this new coffee was launched under the name IDEE KAFFEE. The popularity of this coffee forced the company to expand production. Soon, the business expanded into restaurant supply.

JJ-Koff-175pxFaced with the same lack of green beans during WW II, the company improved the flavor of the substitute drink, renaming it Koff. (The slogan was “Until we can enjoy IDEE KAFFEE again, Koff is a good alternative.”) J.J.’s sons were able to navigate the company through the wars, and the company quickly rebounded through the surviving loyal employees and customers. The sons died within 2 years of each other, about a decade before the 100th anniversary of the company. By then, the fourth generation of the family was managing the company. By 1980, Eilles and Movenpick coffees were part of the Darboven family.

Today, the company sources only premium green coffee from the finest coffee growing regions. Quality and stability are their guiding principles.

We enjoy all the coffees J.J. Darboven produces, and we know you will too! This week, get 15% off your order of these great brands: Eilles, IDEE, Movenpick, and Mozart. Better yet, no minimum order required!*

J.J. Darboven Brands: A World Of Flavor

2017_eilles-kaffee-logoEilles Kaffee, from Germany, is all about enjoying the good things in life. A distinctive and special blend of beans, Eilles Kaffee uses highland beans, which assures a high-quality coffee. For more than 130 years, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand. In fact, Bavarian King Ludwig II served only Eilles coffee at court during his reign in the later 1800s. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant, and Eilles Kaffee Arabica in ground. The beautiful blue and gold packaging evokes the royal court; the aroma and flavor are unforgettable.

IDEE-Logo-WPAlso from Germany is IDEE Kaffee, a wonderfully mild classic coffee. The roasting process IDEE uses eliminates any undesirable elements with the beans prior to roasting, reducing bitter flavors that may result from regular roasting. This leaves a mild tasting coffee, with higher caffeine content, which is easier on the stomach. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees.

2017_movenpick-logoMovenpick, from Switzerland, produces coffee that has been roasted gently and carefully follows an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground and whole bean, 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.

2017_mozart-kaffee-logoFinally, a coffee from Austria named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is a symphony of flavors, notes and aroma. Well-balanced, delicious and irresistible, this coffee brand produces. We have a Mild ground coffee that is light and Intensive ground and instant, with a powerful aroma and taste.

Try any or all of these, and you won’t be disappointed.

Cold Brew + Red Wine = Is This A New Trend?

A California winemaker has announced the release next month of a red wine blend that features cold brew coffee. Coffee wines, as these blends are known, tend to be rich and aromatic drinks, with lots of flavor notes from both the coffee and the wine. This new brew is a limited release. Other coffee wines have been made by soaking green coffee in red wine, or by combining Cabernet or Chardonnay with espresso or cappuccino. We like our wine, and we like our coffee, but we aren’t so sure about enjoying them together. Tell us what you think on our Facebook page!
