We Have Coffee With Style and Taste

This week, we bring you coffee brands from three European countries: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The coffees we have from brands born and based in these three countries are great examples of coffees distinctive to their regions.

From Germany, whose coffee houses allowed, even encouraged, women to openly patronize cafes decades before female suffrage, we bring you IDEE Kaffee, and Eilles Kaffee.

From Austria, home to carnival balls and weiner schnitzel (veal cutlets), we have Mozart Kaffee and Helmut Sachers Kaffee.

Finally, from Switzerland, the birthplace of fondue, cheeses, and milk chocolate, you can try Movenpick.

These premium coffees are delicious and flavorful, and because they are made for the European market, they have a slightly more intense flavor profile. With our discount this week, they are worth a good look – and taste! We’ll give you 15% off your order of Helmut Sachers, Eilles, IDEE, Movenpick, and Mozart coffees, with no minimum required.

Please Use Coupon Code: SELECT15

Our Current Brand Favorites…

From IDEE Kaffee, we have a mild classic coffee made by the J.J. Darboven. Developed by scientists to eliminate any undesirable elements from the beans prior to roasting, the strict process reduces bitter flavors. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans, prepared and gently roasted, which results in a mild coffee that has a higher caffeine content. It’s easy on the stomach and still tastes delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, has created a distinctive and special blend of beans grown in the mountain highlands. Their coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant.


Movenpick coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee is a blend of beans cultivated in high-altitudes from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste. Der Himmlische is available in ground, instant, and whole bean. Movenpick also makes capsules for the Nespresso machine, ranging from a rich Espresso Ristretto (intensity 10) to Espresso Intenso (intensity 8) to Lungo Crema (7). All of these capsules are available at our already-low prices. With the discount above, it’s a steal!

A beloved Austrian brand, named for its most famous son, Mozart, produces a coffee with an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee in ground and in instant. You’ll enjoy the powerful aroma and taste.

One of the top Austrian brands, Helmut Sachers is available in several roasts. We have Vienna Blend (fine and aromatic), Deluxe (rich and creamy, great for espresso drinks) and Espresso (rich). These roasts are available in whole beans. Café Superb is a special blend of fine beans roasted slowly, the Viennese way, creating a smoother and full-flavor coffee, and available in ground. We have three other Helmut Sachers roasts, including a decaffeinated version, and an espresso roast, all in ground.

A Note About J.J. Darboven Coffees

Four of the brands available for discount this week are part of J.J. Darboven International. For the last 150 years, J.J. Darboven has delivered high premium coffee to homes, hotels and restaurants. Darboven was one of the early coffee sellers to send packaged ground coffee to customers through the mail. The company has existed for four generations, with Darboven family members still running this international business from four roasting plants in nine countries.

Coffee In The News

Will Coffee Ground Oils Replace Palm?

coffee-grounds-oilA new process being developed by two Scottish men will process used coffee grounds into oil. Because coffee grounds are the largest amount of the waste from cafes, finding a way to keep them from landfills is a high priority. In addition, palm oil, an inexpensive, mass-produced oil used in food processing, is not a sustainable source. The Scots stated that the oil in coffee has a wide range of use, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and household products. Their startup company is only in Scotland so far, but there are plans to expand into additional European cities.

Douwe Egberts: 265 Years of Expertise

de-11-citiesWhen you think of the Netherlands, do you think of ice skating on the canals? Considering that Dutch speed skaters hold the record for Olympic speed skating medals, both in combined medals, and in gold medals, it’s not surprising that skating on the canals is a national sport. More challenging is the training for one of the largest and longest canal skating races, the Elfstedentocht, which is only held in years when the weather allows for the canals to freeze. de-11-cities-2The race name means “Eleven Cities Tour” and includes a speed skating competition for elite skaters and a gentle, slower tour of the cities for everyone else. Racers go first, then the thousands (yes, thousands) of other skaters take off. The winner may finish in just 6 hours, but all finishers must complete the race by midnight. Adding to the excitement, the announcement of the race, which is completely dependent upon the weather, is made a meager 48 hours before the race is held. Strict measurements of the ice are performed; it must be almost six inches deep, then the announcement can be made, and participants and fans head to Friesland, a northern province, about 70 miles from Amsterdam.

You may not be surprised to learn that the tour, first held in 1909, has been held 1997-11-cities-2only 15 times in the intervening years, the last one was staged in 1997, and the ensuing 22 years have been the longest gap between tours in its 110-year history.

As you may have surmised, the country was yet again disappointed this year because the winter weather conditions never allowed the tour to be held. The last champion of the event, a farmer in his early 50’s, says he wants another race, and another champion of the Elfstedentocht. He says “It will happen.”

The Dutch Mainstay: Douwe Egberts


Egbert Douwes and his wife Akke opened a grocery store in Joure, Netherlands, in 1753, selling products that “add to the pleasures of daily existence” – coffee and tea leading the list of best-sellers. Today, Douwe Egberts still makes delicious coffee (and tea) and is still wildly popular in the Netherlands, and beyond. Read on about some of our favorites below.

Douwe Egberts Best Sellers Available in Ground and Whole Bean

The Netherlands In The News

Vegan foods

These two stories came to our attention and set us wondering. The first is from a Dutch food producer and local grocer, Hema, who makes an iconic Dutch food, smoked sausage. The chain announced they are making a vegan version of the sausage, and eventually, want to offer vegan versions of all of their products, foods like sausage rolls and apple pie.

In more vegan news, a British man from a family of 3 generations of dairy farmers has created and is selling vegan cheese in Holland. Motivated by his own diet choices, he began experimenting with plant-based cheeses, and is now selling them at markets in Amsterdam. He stated he found the Dutch to be more open to new things, and therefore, willing to explore plant-based cheeses. His products, he said, address his own personal concerns about sustainability. And speaking of sustainability…

Coffee + Orange = Soap

soopA business collective that is dedicated to upcycling organic waste streams has created soap, both bar and liquid versions, that use coffee grounds and orange peels. Coffee grounds are a great natural scrub, with the citrus helping to boost the skin’s appearance and add a gentle fragrance. Today, a peel-recycling company supplies the oranges, which come from grocers and other stores that press fresh juice. The coffee grounds come from many sources, but the plan is to eventually collect them from offices and hotels. In case you are wondering, they clean them! The grounds and peels are treated to make them safe and to meet all Dutch regulations on soap and cosmetics.

Coffee in the Spotlight: Italian Coffee

Italians have loved coffee since it first arrived at the port of Trieste, Italy, in the 16th century. Italians drink coffee first thing in the morning, after lunch, at work and then after dinner. (Italians will point out that they don’t drink cappuccino after midday, as they consider the drink to be only for breakfast.) Coffee is an art in Italy, especially and most notably, with espresso.

In Italy, the coffee shop, known as the coffee ‘bar’, is extremely popular too! When you enter, you will find a lot of people standing while drinking their espressos. That’s right…in Italy, café patrons tend to stand for their coffee, served with a glass of water too, as a side drink. Making perfect espresso is a key skill in the bars. This week, we focus on Kimbo, Lavazza and Hausbrandt, Italian coffee roasters in the tradition of true Italian coffees.


We have a huge selection of coffee by these historic Italian brands. This week, get 15% off of Kimbo, Hausbrandt, and Lavazza when you order by Tuesday on EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Hausbrandt – “A legacy of passion and excellence”

Haus_Espresso-Cup-CropAlthough the founder of Hausbrandt was Austrian, he opened a coffee roasting business in Trieste. The founder, a merchant marine, is known for his innovation with transport and storage of coffee to maintain freshness. We have several roasts, all in whole bean, plus a Decaf in ground.

A Note About Espresso

Espresso-TortEspresso became popular at the start of the 20th century in Italy with the development of machines built to make coffee. Espresso bars became a place to meet and socialize. Tiny cups were all the rage. The word espresso is used to describe both a roast of coffee (Espresso Roast) and a method of brewing. Espresso is brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through a compressed pack of finely ground coffee. Espresso Roast refers to coffee roasted so that it is somewhat darker than traditional American roasts. The espresso roast highlights the bitter-sweetness of the bean while keeping the acidity (the tartness) down.

These Bears Are A Different Kind of Gummy

coffee-gummiesA candy store has introduced a new product just this week: Coffee-infused, caffeinated gummy bears in three flavors. Cold brew is described as earthy; Bourbon brew is smokier and iced vanilla latte is a vanilla and almond milk espresso flavor. Reviewers found the aromas pleasantly sweet, and the amount of caffeine in a serving is equal to an espresso. The beans are even packaged in small covered cups with tiny straws for those on the go!

Real Coffee For People With An Instant Lifestyle

Not All Instant Coffees Are Created Equal

Instant-Coffee-In-Jar-BannerWe at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com have many great brands and roasts of coffee, all imported from Europe and made for the European market. In fact, several brands we offer are top sellers, either in their home country or on the world market.

This week, our focus is on top brands of instant coffee. You may know that instant coffee is a third of all the retail brewed coffee drunk around the world. In Western Europe, where high-quality coffee is enjoyed early and often, instant coffee has 25% of the consumer market. Coffee from the European market is darker, stronger and more intense, and you’ll be happy to know that this applies to European brands of instant coffee too. Here’s some of the best instants we offer.

2017_Nescafe cup with It all Starts With A NescafeIt all starts with Nescafe. Literally the introduction of instant coffee to the mass market can be attributed to the creation of Nescafe by Nestle in the 1930’s. Already producing instant chocolate beverages, Nescafe’s move to instant coffee and instant tea transformed the consumer coffee market, and Nescafe sales took off. We offer several roasts and flavors, including Nescafe Instant Espresso, which consistently is on the top-ten lists of the best instant coffees. Strong, rich and velvety, the pure Arabica beans ensure the best flavor of this coffee.

Nescafe-NL-Advert-041419Nescafe Gold Cappuccino, another top-reviewed instant coffee drink, has premium sugar and milk already added in. The cappuccino tastes rich, with a crema that is silky. We have boxes of 8 individual packets at such a low price when combined with the discount below, you can give them a try for practically nothing.

Nescafe also makes a 3 In 1 Classic instant coffee available as individual sticks. Europeans have already discovered the convenience of instant coffee with cream and sugar added. Nescafe 3 In 1 has a great taste, some sweetness, and earns a near-perfect score in reviews. Like other instants, this is also a good base for a coffee drink or iced coffee.

The discount we are offering gets you 15% off your order of all our instant coffees on our site, including the coffee drink substitutes mentioned below.*

Chicory Coffee Originated in France

Chicory-Advert-NLChicory is a flowering plant that has a tough stem, purple flowers and its leaves are often used fresh in salads. To make chicory coffee, the plants are roasted, ground and then brewed into a coffee. While many people think chicory is similar to coffee in taste, you might find it has a bit of a nutty taste. During the 1800’s, a coffee shortage was addressed by brewing and drinking chicory. Later, it became popular to mix chicory in coffee, no more so than in New Orleans, a city that prides itself on chicory coffee. We carry 2 brands of chicory drinks, and both are eligible for the discount above.

Leroux: We have 2 sizes of instant chicory in jars, and ground chicory, made to be brewed as you would brew coffee, both naturally caffeine-free. It’s delicious alone or mixed in coffee or hot chocolate.

Ricore: This instant drink made with coffee and chicory. When combined with coffee, the roasted chicory creates a unique and delicious taste.

Other Coffee Alternatives With No Caffeine

Coffee-Substitutes-Advert-NLWe have several instant drinks that combine barley, chicory, rye and malted grains to create a flavorful drink that is all natural.

We have Cafix in 2 blends, both are rich and smooth, with no acid or caffeine. Pero Instant is very mild, with low acidity, and can be enjoyed on its own, or mixed with other ingredients to create special drinks.

Jacobs and Douwe Egberts Instant Coffees

de-instant-coffees-advert-nl-041419Douwe Egberts Pure Gold instant coffee wins many awards for its smooth, balanced flavor, creamy mouthfeel and strong aroma. It blends well for mochas and iced coffee, or just simple chocolate syrup. Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood instant will remind you of Aroma Rood ground: medium roasted, balanced, with a special sweetness. Douwe Egberts Pure Indulgence is a dark roast, slightly more intense, with a rich flavor and soft feel. Be sure to check out the other Douwe Egberts instant roasts.

Jacobs Kronung instant, another brand that is recognized as being at the top of the Jacobs-Advert-NL-Instantsinstant market, has the same flavor, and the same special aroma, as the ground version. Jacobs Cronat Gold is slightly milder, with a smooth flavor. Jacobs Crema instant is made from 100% Arabica beans, finely ground for ultimate mixability. Jacobs Americano instant is also entirely Arabica beans, and also ground fine. Try Jacobs instant Cappuccino, a creamy, aromatic and sweet drink, with a surprisingly solid crema.

Swiss Won’t Stockpile Coffee Anymore For This One Reason

After World War I, Switzerland enacted an emergency reserve system for food staples such as sugar, rice, edible oils, animal feed, and raw coffee. Law requires that retailers of these products store some percentage of stock in case of war, natural disaster or epidemics. A new plan, just released by the government, will allow coffee stockpiling to end by 2022. The plan stated that coffee “is not essential for life” since it has no calories, and does not support nutritional needs. There does seem to be some opposition to the plan (we won’t say a conflict is ‘brewing’), in particular from the organization that oversees the food stockpiles. A final decision is expected in November.
