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.

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.*

Please use coupon code: DALLMAYR15

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!

Dallmayr: So many options, so little time!

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.

Events are held in cities across America: Holland, Michigan; Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; Seattle, Washington, among many others.

Born in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, Janssen moved to New York city to attend Columbia University. She has worked for organizations that raise animal rights awareness, set international drugs and crime policies, and most recently to raise awareness about animal poaching.

Coffee With Bling

Glitter-Gold-Latte-200Golden glitter lattes are the next bling thing. A café in the West Midlands, UK, debuted golden glitter lattes. The non-toxic glitter is able to be used in food and drink, and apparently leaves you with a shiny lip gloss too. A café in Mumbai, India, is doing the same thing, with their “Diamond and Gold Cappuccino.”

Sour Coffee Ale Combines Two Delicious Worlds

The company behind Fat Tire Belgian Ale has released a special brew named Geisha Sour Ale. The concoction is a blend of Panama Geisha coffee with one of the company’s award-winning sour ales. While the sour ale has been available for a couple decades, the company decided to find ways to present that beer, and others, in new and unique ways. The coffee makes the drink silky and rich while the ale gives a bright note. While the company acknowledges that this is the most expensive beer they have ever made, a portion of the proceeds will go to a grant that will help distribute climate resistant coffee types to smaller coffee farmers around the world.

You Have To Try These Brands!

Let’s start with IDEE Kaffee, a wonderfully mild classic coffee, since it is a best-seller. The roasting process IDEE uses eliminates any undesirable elements with the beans prior to roasting, reducing bitter flavors that may result from standard roasting. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans. This combination of high-quality beans and gentle roasting results in a mild tasting coffee, with higher caffeine content. It is easy on the stomach while still tasting delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, is from Germany. Created from a distinctive and special blend of beans, Eilles Kaffee uses beans grown in the highlands, which assures a high-quality coffee.

We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant. This coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. Try Eilles Kaffee Arabica in ground, made from 100% Arabica beans. The coffee is delicate and mild, with fruit and citrus notes. Eilles Kaffee is packaged in beautiful blue and gold, which evokes a royal court.

From Austria, we have a coffee named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild ground coffee, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee, available in ground and instant, which has a powerful aroma and taste.

We have saved the best for last! Movenpick is from Switzerland, this coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground, whole beans and instant, 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, it makes the best espresso and espresso drinks.

More About JJ Darboven

Johann J. Darboven founded a company in 1866 in Hamburg, Germany. As an innovator, he pioneered delivering roasted coffee in bags to his customers. Within a few years, he earned recognition for his 100+ varieties of coffee at an international horticultural exhibition. A generation later, his sons successfully marketed a coffee under the brand name IDEE (Idea). IDEE was (and still is) produced with a special refining process developed by the Hygienic Institute in Hamburg. The beans are treated to reduce irritants and bitter flavors while preserving the taste, and the caffeine of the coffee. The coffee was (and still is) extremely popular in Germany, and is today J.J.Darboven’s flagship product. The 1930’s found the company expanding into catering, then later into other countries. During the 60’s, one of the earliest coffee commercials shown on TV was for IDEE Kaffee. During the last few decades, J.J.Darboven has grown to include the brands described above. The company is still run by a fourth generation Darboven.

Rare Beans and An Exotic Formula Jack Up Coffee Prices at Some Cafes

In New York City, coffee shops abound. But at a Michelin-starred restaurant on Madison Park, that cup of coffee will cost $24. The restaurant’s coffee director will prepare the coffee tableside, using a dripper brewer (think amped-up Chemex coffee maker), all while timing the 3 stages of preparation carefully. The coffee used is a rare variety of beans from Colombia, and is described as having a creamy texture like dough or yogurt. The flavor is compared to blueberry pie. Another café we mentioned in a previous newsletter uses a machine that costs over $13k to prepare the $18 cup of coffee. Yet another coffee importer sells varieties of beans that are a steal at $100 a pound. We say OUCH! You can get any of our delicious coffees to brew at home – you can even grind your own beans if you prefer – and enjoy flavorful coffee for a great low price.

International Coffee Day: 29 Sep – 1 Oct

EBC-Internatinal-Coffee-Day-2017

What’s not to like about a day that celebrates coffee and lasts, well, 3 days!

That’s right. International Coffee Day (ICD) began on Friday, and on Sunday, events will cap the big celebration. Activities have been taking place around the world.
The origins of this holiday are rather unclear. Although there are many references to such a day going back to the 1980’s, it is the International Coffee Organization (ICO) that takes credit for this third annual celebration. Two years ago, the day was launched in Milan, Italy, with 70 events in 35 countries. Last year, almost double the number of events took place in 54 countries. This year, it’s expected to be bigger than ever!

In the meantime, consider that www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a wide range of premium coffee from Europe made for the European market, so the flavor profiles are richer and more robust. Many of these companies are also focused on the same goals as International Coffee Day: Celebrate coffee, promote fair trade coffee and raise awareness of sustainability concerns.

We have Bristot, Dallmayr, Lavazza, Arvid Nordquist, Mount Hagan, Douwe Egberts and more, all companies that follow certified production guidelines from sustainability-based organizations such as UTZ Certified and the Rainforest Alliance. Find our range of sustainable products here.

Let’s celebrate European coffee and International Coffee Day! We’ll take 10% off your order of $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

A Little About The ICO and This Year’s Celebration

coffee-landmarks-color-200pxThe ICO is a proactive intergovernmental organization for the coffee industry comprised of representatives from seventy-seven countries. These countries account for 98% of the world’s coffee producers and 83% of the world’s coffee consumers. This year, the Specialty Coffee Association and World Coffee Research have joined forces to promote
the research group’s mission. WCR has been a leader in science-based research particularly with new coffee varieties, focused on quality, taste, and environmental resilience. In addition, this day will also kick-off the Sustainable Coffee Challenge here in the United States. The collaboration includes coffee companies, governments, and other groups across the coffee industry, all with the goal of making coffee the world’s first completely sustainable agricultural product.

Death Wish Coffee Recalled For Being Lethal

death-wish-coffee2The USDA has recalled cans of Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew because of fears of botulism. There may be a concern with the brewing process leading to the growth of the toxin. The coffee has approximately twice the caffeine of normal coffee. We’re all for coffee names reflecting the roast, the taste or its effect, but not in this case.

 

Virtual Coffee Meet-Up Celebrates ICD

One way to celebrate the big day this weekend is to post a picture of yourself enjoying a cup of coffee, alone or with friends, on Sunday, Oct 1.
