Douwe Egberts has been roasting and marketing coffee for more than 265 years. Being one of the first businesses offering that commodity both locally and regionally, it is no surprise that Douwe Egberts is not only first in coffee, but is also responsible for many “firsts” in the Industry. Let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights:
• Introduced the red seal as its logo, an iconic image still used today
• Offered a customer loyalty program through stamps on their packages
• Early on, sold coffee via a traveling salesman, the son Douwe Egberts, spreading the popularity of the brand
• Pioneered pursuing sustainable and environmentally-friendly policies and procedures for growing and harvesting coffee
• Created the Douwe Egberts Foundation, working in-country where coffee beans are grown
• Introduced a vending machine that responded to a person’s face, where a yawn caused a cup of hot Douwe Egberts coffee to be delivered
• Recently began selling tea in China (coffee too)
Douwe Egberts coffee is the result of innovation over time, and that’s one reason the brand is known worldwide. Douwe Egberts has a range of delicious coffee at economical prices (even before our discount offer!).

And Speaking of Innovation in The Netherlands…
A Dutch company is using small drones to control the number of flying pest insects that plague flower growers. A pilot program started last month is trying the drones to control a specific moth. Results of the program will be reviewed for effectiveness, and in looking to improve the technology.
The largest supermarket chain in the country has started a trial of grocery-delivery through a delivery robot. The robot is an electric vehicle that can travel up to eight kilometers, and is being tested within the campus of a high-tech school, as the vehicle is not allowed on the road. Groceries are packed inside the device, which makes its way to the delivery location using cameras and sensors. The customer will need to step outside to get their order.
In other robotic news, a Dutch company has built a line of robot vehicles now being tested at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to handle checked bags for customers. Used specifically for customers at the international terminal who are rechecking bags after clearing customs and security for domestic flights, travelers place their bags on the robot, use the touch screen to identify their airline, and the bag is transported to the correct baggage belt.
One final note: The vending machine mentioned above, originally seen as a marketing ploy, was an early iteration of “gesture recognition,” cutting-edge technology poised to grow by almost 30% over the next 5 years.
As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!
