Amsterdam: Iconic Architecture And Douwe Egberts

The Netherlands is the home of Douwe Egberts, the most popular coffee in the country. The country itself is iconic – think Dutch canal skating, wheels of cheese, wooden clogs, to name a few – so this week we’re highlighting special sights to see on a visit.
Canal-Row-Sunset
When thinking of Amsterdam, do images of large houses along a canal come to mind? While that is the iconic image, there are also homes not canal-side that reflect the history and architecture of this great city.

rembrandt-house-1Let’s start with the Rembrandt House. The actual building dates from 1606, a prominent house of the time; today the interior is restored and decorated just as it was when Rembrandt himself lived there for 20 years from 1640. The iconic artist painted the majority of his masterpieces while living there, and had a collection of rare objects (suits of Japanese armor and busts of Roman emperors, for instance) along with paintings, drawings and sketches from the Old Masters. His collections and his studio, where he taught students to paint like a master, have been recreated, so the home is now a museum.

One of those houses on a canal is the Anne Frank House. The house opened to the public in 1960 with the mission to encourage freedom, equal rights and democracy. Designated a world heritage site, one million people visit annually.

3d-print-houseOne more house that is must-see: The 3D Print Canal House, made entirely of plastic and foam, is a unique look at 3D printing (one printer was 6 meters’ tall, and is on display), and the process it takes to put it all together. While the construction is still on-going, each piece used is fabricated individually and tacked on to the house. You can also learn about the printing process on your visit.


Even if you can’t be in Amsterdam, you can still enjoy great Dutch coffee with Douwe Egberts from EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Get 15% off all Douwe Egberts coffee with no minimum order!

DE-Sale-Advert-December-2018-NL
Like a darker roast? Try Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee, rich and full, 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.

We have Douwe Egberts Black, a dark, rich coffee in ground. As one of the brand’s most popular coffees, it’s 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.

Not sure? Try Aroma Rood, the flagship product, a delicious medium roast, medium strength coffee. We have Aroma Rood in whole beans, ground and instant.

These coffees are made for the European market, so it’s just like a cup served at a canal-side café in Amsterdam! The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

Coffee vs Tea Study Looks At Drinker’s Personality

tea-vs-coffeeA new study of 2000 Americans gathered data to examine how a person’s choice of drink relates to her personality. For instance, you’d think that those of us who drink coffee in the morning would be the loud, extroverted group, but no. Turns out the tea drinkers are outgoing, and night owls, while the coffee drinkers are the creative, introverted types. A few other interesting findings:

• More than 75 percent drink their first cup of coffee or tea before 8AM.
• Tea lovers were more likely to enjoy “The Walking Dead” and “Friends” while coffee lovers prefer “The Office” and “Seinfeld.”
• Coffee drinkers prefer punk, rock, blues and jazz; tea drinkers choose classical, country, pop or hip-hop.
• Coffee types average 3.4 cups per day; tea types sip 2.7 cups.

The study was conducted on behalf of a company that makes disposable paper cups.

We Have Imported Italian Coffee Just Like Italians Drink Everyday!

itl-villa-plus-castle
If you have ever considered moving to Italy, because let’s face it, they have great coffee there, then you should investigate the small Italian villages looking to attract new residents. Several towns and villages in the country are offering homes for one Euro ($1.10 USD); some are even offering to pay a stipend if you do buy there. The catch is that the homes are abandoned, often dilapidated, needing work and improvements, so while you may get the house cheaply, you are obligated to complete planned repairs within a few years. In some cases, the buyer must open a small business, and there is usually a non-refundable deposit.

itl-villa-interior-staircaseInterestingly, many of these villages are historical centers showcasing architecture, archeological ruins, cave and underground chamber living, wine harvesting, mountain-side and seaside areas, and even featuring centuries-old stone houses at the base of a castle. Even more interesting for the Italians already living there, it turns out that these inexpensive homes have attracted Europeans and Americans, who are buying and renovating. Almost ten percent of Italy’s population consists of people from other countries.

Small villages in the country have increasingly fewer residents, as people have slowly abandoned the areas to move to larger towns for work. In addition, Italy’s birth rate has drastically fallen, with 2018 registering as the lowest on record ever.


Luckily, you don’t have to move to Italy to get real Italian coffee. At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have fresh and delicious Italian coffee imported from Italy. This week, we are offering a special deal on 3 of our top brands:

Burglary Spree Made Him Thirsty

Coffee-Police-LineIn a suburb of Atlanta, a block of businesses were broken into and plundered during several hours overnight one day last week. The intruder was spotted on surveillance cameras, and is accused of taking computers, tvs, sports memorabilia, and food. He tried but was unsuccessful in making a cup of coffee at one of his stops, so he grabbed the coffee itself and took that instead. Police released video images asking for the public’s help in identifying the perp.

Germany: Fundamental In Coffee’s History

Germany, much like Italy, has played a pivotal role in the history of coffee in Europe. From the opening of coffeehouses as early as the 1670’s in Hamburg and Bremen, two key shipping ports that ultimately brought coffee into Germany and eastern Europe, Germany took its place as a European coffee leader. With the spread of coffeehouses over the next 50 years, women would be found frequenting the café, and even more shockingly, meeting and chatting with other women out in the open. This was not happening in other countries, making Germany ahead of its time!

JC-TC-BANNER

One of the country’s biggest contributions to the long history of coffee is the simple coffee filter. The disposable filter that keeps the grounds out of your cup and pot was created and sold by a German woman in the early 1900s. She loved drinking coffee but hated the mess of the grounds and cleaning up. As her son would say later, she hated grounds in her cup. One morning in frustration, she grabbed a piece of blotter paper from her son’s school book sitting on the table (because writing was done with nibs dipped in ink wells). Since making coffee in Turkish style was common, so were grounds in your cup. She strained the boiled coffee through the paper and an empire was born.

filter-closeShe tested the process with friends at coffee afternoons, and eventually, she had the product patented. In the early days, the business was run out of the family home, so her two sons delivered products while her husband performed demos on how to use the product. (He eventually outsourced that job to “demonstration ladies” employed for just that.) You may have already guessed that this woman was Melitta Bentz, from Dresden. Today the company employs more than 4000 people worldwide with revenue close to $2 billion USD.

Heritage Days In The Netherlands Celebrate Culture and History

Douwe Egberts has been based in the Netherlands for more than 265 years.

While there are always cultural and social happenings in The Netherlands, September brings the celebration of Heritage Days (Open Monumentendag, as the Dutch say). Since 1987, this annual event has always been held over the second weekend of September, where some 5000 historical buildings and sites open their doors to the public, usually free of charge. The event is part of the larger European Heritage Days, which aims to make European culture and heritage more accessible.

heritage-days-e

In the Netherlands, more than 80 percent of Dutch citizens participate. This year, organizers expect a million people to take part in the 1000+ events across the country. Local groups in each city and village host related exhibitions, music and tours. Each location offers unique aspects of historical culture. For instance, The Hague reflects the political center of the country; Maastricht shows off its medieval churches; Amsterdam has canal houses; Leiden’s theatres shine, and Gouda has a magnificent city hall. So many sites, so little time.

Douwe Egberts Roasts Offer Range of Tastes

Ground Coffee

DE-Sale-AdvertSept-2019-NL

Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood, packaged in their signature red colors, is smooth, full, and balanced. Go lighter with Douwe Egberts Select Aroma ground coffee, a smooth coffee with fruity notes. Medium roast Douwe Egberts Excellent Aroma is full-bodied and smooth. Douwe Egberts Black in ground is strong and rich, and one of the most popular Douwe Egberts coffees. Mocca Aroma coffee, a medium to dark roast, is spicy and rich.

Whole Beans

DE-WB-Variety-Advert-NLWe have Douwe Egberts whole beans in a variety of roasts, including Aroma Rood (the most popular roast), Excellent Aroma and Mocca Aroma. All our Douwe Egberts whole beans are packaged in 17.6oz/500g size packs at prices that can’t be beat!

PS: When you make your coffee by starting with whole beans, you get a cup of coffee with the freshest taste and a wonderful aroma.

Treat The Beans With Care

bean-closeup
The biggest threats to the taste and freshness of coffee beans are air, moisture and time. In a perfect world, coffee would be ground, brewed and drunk immediately. When you buy fresh beans, you should try to use them within 2 weeks. Store them in the bag in which they come, grind them as you need them. Seal the bag with tape or a strong clip after forcing out as much air as possible. You can also store them in an air-tight canister, but make sure the container does not allow light to get in. We do not recommend storing beans (or ground coffee, for that matter) in the freezer or refrigerator. When the coffee is moved in and out of the cold, condensation forms on the coffee. That moisture will then refreeze and thaw each and every time you move it from the cold to the ambient room temperature. This will quickly deplete the flavorful oils of the coffee, making your coffee taste flat. Life’s too short for bad coffee.

Italian Espresso and More Reasons To Love Coffee

If French is the language of love, then Italian is the language of coffee! The reason? Espresso, born in Italy, is the basis of all Italian-named coffee drinks. From cappuccino to macchiato to latte, they all start with espresso! Let’s take a look at this key component of Italian coffee.
DK-Espresso-Banner
Espresso is a very concentrated shot of coffee that results from forcing nearly-boiling water through finely ground coffee. Early espresso machines used steam pressure to force the water through the grounds. Today there are many different methods of extracting espresso, from manual and automatic machines to stovetop espresso makers.

esp-dripAs the water blasts through the coffee, all the flavor, oils, sugars and proteins are released and dissolved in the liquid. The resulting mixture, while small in volume, is slightly thick, with a very strong, rich flavor. Gently resting on top is the crema (foam), which many experts say indicates the quality of the espresso. Traditionally, espresso is served in a small, porcelain cup, alone or with any number of add-ins and toppings: cream, liquor, warm milk, chocolate – the list is long, just pick your favorite. The extracted shot can also be used in many other coffee drinks, as mentioned above.

We have a huge selection of espresso beans, ground espresso and even decaffeinated espresso. And, we have these Italian coffees in roasts that can prepared in a regular coffee maker. The options are endless! Even better, our prices make it easy to espresso yourself!

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.


We love all these brands. You will too! We’ll give you 15% off your order of Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff with no minimum purchase required.*

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.*

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 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!


Coffee In The News

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.


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