Dallmayr Kaffee In The Spotlight: Drink Up!

ebc-coffee-and-beer-e

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.

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:

DM-New-Products-Advert-NL

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!)

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

jj-logo-beans-e

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!

It’s Time For A Coffee Klatch!

Coffee klatch comes from a German phrase that literally translates to coffee and gossip, and in Germany, it marked the time that women were allowed to visit and chat for a while at coffee houses (we are talking about the 1800’s). The Coffee Klatch is alive and well today.

This week, we are highlighting 3 of our most popular German brands: Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff. Tchibo has owned and run Eduscho and Davidoff for many years.

girlfriends-having-coffee-650px-tchibologos

Let’s start with a little news from Germany’s coffee culture.

Our first bit of news comes from Tchibo, one of our highlighted brands. Tchibo has long been roasting coffee, and in the 20th century, added retail products to the company portfolio. Launched last month, a new service named Tchibo Share allows customers to choose to rent clothing for children and pregnant moms for a month or longer. Returned clothing is professionally cleaned and then is available for rental again. Costs start at two euros ($2.45 USD) monthly. The company states that one goal of the business is to support sustainability.

freiburg-cup-300pxNext up, we head to the city of Freiburg in Germany. The city is responsible for introducing the idea of a reusable cup that can be returned to one of many shops to cut down on disposable waste. Those shops disinfect the plastic cup; the cup itself can be reused up to 400 times. It comes with a disposable lid (just like from a coffee shop), which helps cut down the amount of waste with the cup overall. The cups are available all over town at places where coffee is sold. In fact, the city has an entire web site devoted to the Freiburg Cup and how to get one.

Our last item of news refers to a very recent decision that will allow some German workers to work only 28 hours per week. Though starting in only one region of the country, where almost one million workers are affected, it should eventually impact almost 4 million people. The 28-hr week is intended to be used where there is a need to care for children and/or elderly and sick relatives, and can be chosen for up to two years. Interestingly, the deal includes having willing workers increasing their weekly hours by five and receiving a 4 percent pay raise. This flexible working time system could impact businesses across the country, including BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche.


High-end cars bring us to high-end coffee brands, but thankfully, the prices are much better. Here is our deal this week: Get 15% off your order of Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff, with no minimum required at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Robo-Baristas Can’t Make Latte Art

robot-arm-barista

A cafe in San Francisco, and another unrelated café in Tokyo, both have robots making and delivering coffee to customers. The robot in both places is a one-armed device with a grasping device at the end. (In Tokyo, the machine has cartoon eyes displayed above the arm, but in San Francisco, no misleading occurs.) The customer orders and pays for a drink using a tablet, gets a printed ticket that the robot is able to scan, then make and deliver the drink. In California, the goal is to have more human interaction by the employees with clients while the robot makes the drink. In Tokyo, the goal is efficiency and to serve as many folks as possible.

Are Smart Mugs Necessary?

Smart mugs, that is mugs that can remind you to drink water, measure your liquid intake, and keep your beverage at the right temp for long periods, are a new digital trend. In fact, the second generation of these smart mugs is on the market now, ranging in price from $100 to more than $200. Most are able to travel too, but will need to be plugged in for charging at times. An app on your phone helps you monitor and control the mug. You can already program your coffee maker from your phone app, so it seems only logical that you would want to control your mug too, we guess. We have always been partial to white ceramic cups, or our durable double-walled cups with our logo!

Italian Espresso: North vs South

This week, we have two of our best Italian coffees in the spotlight: Hausbrandt and Kimbo

Kimbo-Hausbrandt-Banner-Light-300pxTogether, these two brands, from opposite sides of the country, showcase true Italian coffee. Hausbrandt is from northern Italy, in Trieste, while Kimbo is based in the southern part of the country, out of Naples. In every part of Italy, people drink coffee all day, often standing up at a coffee bar, alongside a glass of water, meant to cleanse the palate pre-drink.

When we think about the origins of coffee, many great European cities were thriving centers for coffee production. In the ancient southern city of Naples, coffee has always held a special place in Italian hearts. Neapolitans have long roasted their own coffee, either at home or from a vendor cart.
naples_coffee_with_lemons-200pxOrdering an espresso in a bar (a coffee bar, that is) will usually include a twist of lemon peel alongside, a popular citrus fruit in that part of Italy. In fact, in the south, food is simple, fresh and a little spicy. Perhaps it is the warm sea breezes, sunny weather, and a later start to the day, but southern roasts are darker, full-bodied with a heavier mouth-feel.

Up north, Trieste is an historical center of the coffee industry in Europe, one of the most important for the last few centuries. It was here that coffee was delivered for processing, and encouraging small shops and cafes to open along the waterfront and neighborhoods. Here, espresso is traditionally a bit lighter, with a more delicate taste, with little acid. Sweetness and smoothness are key factors in coffee from the north.


We enjoy both these coffee brands, and we know you will too. This week, get 15% off your order of Kimbo and Hausbrandt products at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*

Coffee Drinks In Italy

Itailian-Coffees-Chart2-NL

Here are the go-to coffee drinks in Italy. We’ve included our suggestions for roasts from our two featured Italian brands to make the perfect cup.

Un Caffe is an espresso. Hausbrandt Espresso ground is 100% Arabica beans, with a sweet flavor, medium body and floral aroma notes. Kimbo Napoletano ground is made with Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, roasted to extract an intense flavor and rich aroma.

Cappuccino is espresso topped with hot, foamy milk. Try Hausbrandt Espresso Rossa ground coffee for a sweet and aromatic cappuccino. Kimbo Antica Tradizione ground is a classic espresso; with milk, the creamy drink is smooth.

Caffe Latte in Italy is usually served with a tall glass of heated milk. Made of 1/3 espresso and 2/3 heated milk, this creamy coffee, just as with cappuccino, is only ordered by Italians before lunch. Hausbrandt Superbar whole bean coffee has a superb aroma with toast notes, while hints of cocoa and liquorice linger. Kimbo Aroma Gold ground is 100% Arabica coffee, so it has a rich aroma and flavor with a smooth finish.

Caffe Americano is espresso with additional hot water added. Hausbrandt Nero Espresso ground is sweet, with floral aroma notes. Kimbo Superior Blend in whole bean is sweet and smooth.

Macchiato, meaning “stained,” is an espresso with a teaspoon or so of foamed milk on top, and is the one coffee drink with milk that Italians will drink any time of day. Hausbrandt Oro Espresso ground coffee has a nutty flavor and an excellent deep brown crema. Kimbo Extra Cream in whole beans is considered one of the best of the southern Italian espressos.

These coffees and these drinks will immediately transport you to a sunlit Italian piazza. Try one, two or more with the discount above, which is only available through Tuesday.

Teen vs Council in Australia; Bureaucracy Wins

Fifteen year-old Dante Valentinis, a high school student living in Newcastle, South Wales, is considered by many to be a self-starter. He’s run a vegetable and fruit business from his backyard, walked dogs and bred chickens to make money. With his father’s help, he found a discarded kitchen cabinet, refurbished it into a cart, added a fridge, a water heater, sinks, a hot plate and a generator. He and 3 staff (friends and family) got matching uniforms and set up the coffee cart at a local beach on the weekends. Unfortunately, the business, known as D’oro the Exploro, was forced to close by the Newcastle City Council. While claiming to support the lad’s initiative and entrepreneurship, they stated Dante must be required to follow the same steps and processes for approval that anyone with a mobile food van has to complete. Plans for his business were developed last year with his teachers in high school. No surprise that Dante has already started the process and plans to jump through the council’s hoops.

Jacobs Kaffee In The Spotlight

Think Outside the Trash. Recycle.

In Germany, recycling is taken very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that according to a 2017 year-end report, Germany is top in recycling compared to other countries in the world. German households alone recycle 57 percent of their waste. Perhaps that’s because the government provides funding, accessibility and incentives that encourage recycling. Some would say this is thinking outside the box.

JACOBS-BANNER

The top five recycling countries on the list are all within 3 percentage points in the rankings. The report finds Austria in second place, followed by South Korea in third, by only a mere .1 percent difference. Wales, in the United Kingdom, comes in fourth. That country has an ambitious plan to achieve zero waste by 2050. Switzerland rounds out the top 5.

coffee-cups-trash-200pxJust last week, in Europe, the European Union (EU) began debating a strategy for managing plastic waste, with a focus on recycling, renewables & responsible sourcing. One way the EU intends to facilitate this is by making recycling profitable for business. Regardless, single-use coffee cups, such as those at a café, will be banned in the EU by 2030.

It shouldn’t be surprising then to learn that Jacobs Coffee, from Germany, and a staple in German households, takes corporate responsibility seriously too. Jacobs adheres to guidelines for responsible sourcing, including UTZ and Rainforest Alliance-certified suppliers, while also working with farmers to address sustainability issues. As part of their commitment, Jacobs makes continuous business improvements to minimize the impact of the production and delivery on the environment. Within their parent company, JDE, Jacobs holds a market share of more than 25% in their home country.


While Jacobs is popular in Germany and beyond, we want it to become one of your favorites. Try it in your own home, and prepare to be delighted! We are giving 15% off your order of Jacobs products at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*

One Bar of Coffee, Please

In a few cities in the Baltic states of Europe, you can consume your coffee not in a glass, but as a bar (think candy-bar). A start-up company, with the goal of making specialty coffee more accessible, has begun selling edible coffee that tastes like coffee and has caffeine. The makers state that the bars give 4 hours of energy because it is absorbed more slowly in the body; it can go anywhere, and uses the entire coffee cherry. One of the 2 types of bars available is made with beans and the cascara, the fruity part that encases the bean. The flavor is described as dried fruit. The other type, for what it’s worth, is the Milk version. Made the same way as the first bar, but with milk powder added in, the company likens it to a mild cappuccino. We couldn’t help but wonder: Does it melt in your hand?

Dallmayr Kaffee In The Spotlight At Enjoy Better Coffee

Dallmayr-January-18-Banner

Dallmayr Is Passionate About Coffee

This distinctive coffee brand has a secret: Dallmayr uses the best highland coffee plants from the top coffee-growing areas in the world. That includes Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, Colombia and Brazil. When coffee beans grow in higher altitudes, the temperatures are cooler, which ripens the cherries more slowly. This allows more time for the beans to develop flavor, aroma and gentle acidity. Dallmayr is well-known for its smooth taste and finish.

We are so excited to tell you about several of our most popular Dallmayr products that are back in stock, even items we haven’t seen for a long while!


We know you will love Dallmayr, a perfect example of the best European coffee available. In fact, you will love it so much, we want to give you 15% off your order of Dallmayr, with no minimum purchase required at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Dallmayr: What’s Brewing

DM-New-Products-Advert-NL

If you’ve been reading our newsletters for a while, then you know we think a French Press is one of the best ways to make and enjoy coffee. Dallmayr French Press Selection, one of their newer roasts, is now back in stock. This blend was 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.

All of these are extremely aromatic, so try one, two or three today. For the Nespresso coffee maker, in addition to the 10 roasts in capsules, we have four new 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).

Dallmayr Capsa capsules for the Nespresso machine are one of our top-selling products, and invariably sell out, so you must order today!

CNN Hero Of the Year Runs A Coffee Shop


2498202_Beaut_26Amy Wright, of North Carolina, won the CNN Hero of the Year last month for her support and employment of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She has hired 40 workers with disabilities to staff the coffee shop, named after her own two children with Down syndrome. She was awarded $100,000 to continue her work, and plans to open a second shop in Charleston, South Carolina. The project began when Amy and her husband learned that 70% of adults with disabilities are unemployed. They quit their corporate jobs, and eventually opened the coffee shop to raise awareness about the employment issue. Amy says that families who come into the shop who have children with disabilities are given a glimpse of hope, and to see what’s possible for their own children.
