Douwe Egberts In The Spotlight

Amsterdam-Rings-of-a-Tree-Banner-NL-E3

The Netherlands is home to Douwe Egberts, one of our most popular coffee brands. This week, we highlight some of the unusual and special homes that are must-sees!

Anne-Frank-House-Amsterdam-CRAny trip to Amsterdam should include a visit to the Anne Frank House. The house also has a museum and a gift shop, and is one of the quietest places you will ever find. The annex where the family and four others hid and lived for more than two years is preserved for visitors to get a sense of their life. Anne’s pictures of movie stars taped to her small room’s wall is preserved under glass. You can peek out the window of the top room, just as Anne would do to get away from the cramped communal space. The House opened in 1960, and continues to this day to spread knowledge, freedom and democracy.

hendrika-marie-houseboat-275pxOn the very same canal you will find the houseboat Hendrika Maria, also known as the Houseboat Museum. Since 1997, the owner has opened his home and welcomed visitors. Amsterdam canals are lined with similar houseboats. Check out the full kitchen down below, the wood-burning stove in the sitting room, and all the containers of plants soaking up the sun on the boat’s roof. Plus, getting a picture of the canal and bridges from the canal itself makes for a special photo.

rembrandt-house-museum-in-amsterdam-300px-crOne of the greatest visual artists in history, and the most important in Dutch art, is Rembrandt. A Dutch painter and printmaker, he lived in Amsterdam from his mid-twenties until his death. He is well-known for his portraits, his Biblical scenes, his etchings and his creative use of light and shadow in his work. The Rembrandt House Museum, where the artist actually lived for almost 20 years, is restored to look exactly how it did during those years. It was here that he painted the majority of his great works, stored his collection of unusual objects (stuffed animals, musical instruments, shells, coins, etc.), and taught art to students. Whether you are a fan of art or a fan of architecture, this place is worth a visit.

Douwe Egberts Note On Grinds

Scoop of Ground CoffeeThe grind size of coffee has a direct impact on the quality of the flavor of the brewed coffee. While you should always use the correct grind for the type of equipment you are using to make coffee, the good news is that Douwe Egberts in ground is a medium coarse grind. This flexible grind works in French Press, filter, and drip machines.


Coffee In The News

Beans In Space

weather-balloon-300px-E2Astronaut coffee is made from beans sourced from a small farm in Colombia that are launched on a weather balloon and sent to space. Well, more accurately, the beans traveled 30 miles up into the stratosphere. When the barista recovered the package of beans several hours later using GPS, the beans were slightly frozen and coated with water from the air pressure. Two servings of these beans cost $50, which is made and served pour-over style. The coffee is supposed to be light, soft and fruity, with notes of licorice.

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!

Cool Beans Help To Relax

A spa based in a Chicago hotel is now offering this refreshing start to the day.

coffee-scrub-300pxThe three-part package delivers an espresso body scrub, a full-body massage, and a shot of espresso. It’s gonna be a good day!

The scrub is a mixture of espresso beans, honey and essential oils, so you can enjoy the great aroma of coffee while exfoliating the skin. The aesthetician will then use a warm towel to remove the mixture, leaving your pores open and ready for the massage. The Swedish-style massage is relaxing and calming, but even better, as it comes to an end, and you must prepare to enter the real world, you get to enjoy a shot of espresso. Now, you’re ready to start the day. This little treat for yourself will run you $210 and up, before tip.


We offer many brands of espresso, drip coffee, pods and capsules of delicious, European coffee, and you can make your own scrub, and your own espresso shot, for a lot less than going to Chicago. In fact, we want you to love our coffee as much as we do, so we are giving you 10% off your order of $30 or more at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please Use Coupon Code: COFFEE10

*Discount valid from 2/04/18 through 11:59PM ET on 2/06/18 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 10% off $30 minimum order. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

European Coffee Specialties

Austria: In a lovely Viennese café, the drink to order is a Wiener Melange. It’s espresso with steamed milk and light foam, and is delicious with any torte you might try.

France: In Paris, try the Café Crème, an espresso drink with a lot of steamed milk, so it is most like a cappuccino, something the French don’t usually order.

Ireland: Of course it has to be Irish coffee! Hot coffee, Irish whiskey, brown sugar and whipped cream make this a cold-weather treat. If you like this drink, you can get a rum version, but you’ll have to visit northern Germany.

European-coffee-examples-nl-edit

Italy: Espresso is the standard coffee drink, but you should only drink it with milk in the morning there. (Italians believe that milk affects the digestive system when drunk after morning.) Italians like a sweet pastry with their espresso, stuffed with custard, marmalade, or Nutella.

Sweden and Finland: Fika (mid-morning and late-afternoon coffee breaks), always better with friends, means a coffee with a bun or roll. Try a cardamom-style kardemummabullar or a heavily-iced cinnamon roll known as a kanelbulle.

Enjoy Better Coffee has coffee brands from all these countries. We think you should go European style, and the discount above makes it even easier to enjoy a “European holiday.”

Cold Brew In Top 5 Popular Foods for 2017

Cold brew coffee and its popularity have increased rapidly since 2016, per Google Trends’ Beverage report. Want to try a fancy barista-style cold brew? Simply start with high-quality beans (we have plenty from which to choose). Grind the beans semi-coarse. Stir ¾ cup grounds with 4 cups of water, and put in the fridge for 6-24 hours. Strain in a sieve lined with a coffee filter. To make a cup, use one-part concentrate with 2 parts water, or to taste. Enjoy! Btw, the other top items in the food category for 2017: Zoodles (zucchini noodles); ketogenic foods (based on a newer popular diet); riced veggies (think cauliflower, sweet potato and broccoli); and poke bowls (a deconstructed sushi roll in a bowl, with rice or noodles, vegetables, and sauce).

Forget Butter; There’s Egg In My Capp

K-Cappuccino-w-Egg-Yolk-200pxThis trend, from South Korea, involves straining out the egg white, then dropping the yolk in a cup of espresso and whisked. Top with heavy cream, cocoa powder and serve! Someone described it as drinking espresso “Rocky” style. Apparently the heat from the coffee kills the bacteria from the raw egg.

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.*

Please use coupon code KIMHAUS15

*Discount valid from 1/28/18 through 11:59PM ET on 1/30/18 at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Kimbo and Hausbrandt products. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

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.
