Dallmayr Kaffee In The Spotlight: Drink Up!

ebc-coffee-and-beer-e

A guy walks into a German bar. While this may sound like the start of a joke (and maybe it is!), but in this case, we want you to think about what you might drink after walking into a German bar.

This week, we’re talking about a great German coffee, Dallmayr. But we can’t talk about great German coffee without talking about German beer. That’s because Germany is a top consumer of both coffee and beer. Per person, in Germany, consumption of beer does not even approach consumption of coffee: 28 gallons of beer vs 43 gallons of coffee vs 40 gallons of water per year.

Coffee and beer have been around for centuries. Both have been treated as special drinks through the years, yet were banned at times, revered at other times, reserved only for the wealthy at times, and today, are considered specialty, artisanal beverages.

Hildegard-of-BingenIt’s useful to remember that beer was drunk because for much of that time, water was often contaminated. Even Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess from the 11th century, encouraged the drinking of beer for health and safety reasons. Today in Germany, more than 1300 breweries produce more than 5000 brands, more than any other country in the world!

Meanwhile, coffee proliferation contributed to the spread of a new business, coffee houses, where politicians, artists, writers, and women found company and similar-thinking neighbors and friends. Meeting there even generated a bit of gossip!

dm-restaurantDallmayr is also a key player in the bar scene of Munich, where they offer several options for bar drinks. In addition to their Café Bistro, and a Bar & Grill, they also have a Michelin-starred restaurant. And, yes, they offer beer, wine and of course their delicious coffees.


This week, in honor of National Beer Day here in the U.S. (April 7), we are offering a deal on Dallmayr that you will want to toast: Get 15% off your order of this great coffee brand with no minimum order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com!*

Dallmayr: The Best Coffees In the World

The first word that comes to mind when we drink Dallmayr is smooth, from the body to the finish. The beans are carefully selected from the best coffee-growing regions, then roasted at the Dallmayr production facilities in the southeast city of Geising, about a 45-minute drive from Dresden.

These are our best sellers:

DM-New-Products-Advert-NL

Dallmayr French Press Selection is a blend 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.

For the Nespresso maker, we have 11 Capsa roasts of capsules, including newer 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). The flavored coffees are perfect for coffee drinks (see below), but any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own (milk’s optional)!


Coffee In The News

These Coffee Drinks Are Easy and Tasty

brown-sugar-caramel-latteTry Capsa Chocolat or Vanilla as the base for this aromatic and sweet treat. Add an ounce of Kahlua, ½ ounce of brandy and a dash of cinnamon. Top with sweetened whipped cream and sit back to enjoy.

These flavored coffees also make a great Brown Sugar and Caramel Latte. Add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the prepared coffee, plus ¼ cup half-and-half, with a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. (Frothing the cream makes it even dreamier!)

J.J. Darboven: A Company Dedicated to Gourmet Coffee

jj-logo-beans-e

This past week marked the 152nd year anniversary of the start of a small shop in Hamburg, Germany. That shop, owned by Johann Joachim Darboven, sold bread, milk, and a novelty of the time, roasted coffee beans. When he started shipping packaged coffee and sugar cubes to customers using the postal system, the legacy was set.

Within a few years, the company was offering 144 coffee varieties identified by origin and trade name at an international horticulture exhibition, and the company won the silver medal. When J.J. passed away 40 years later, his two sons took over a company that had already grown far beyond Hamburg. During WW I, the company faced a lack of green coffee beans, so they developed a popular drink that could replace coffee. This drink contained grain, chicory, sorghum, sugar beet, and roasted figs. But the brothers did not stop their innovation there.

IDEE-Kaffee-WS-FlyerA decade later, they hired a food chemist to develop a coffee that was easy to digest, yet still tasted the same, and had the same amount of caffeine. Using the already-established brand name ‘Idee’, this new coffee was launched under the name IDEE KAFFEE. The popularity of this coffee forced the company to expand production. Soon, the business expanded into restaurant supply.

JJ-Koff-175pxFaced with the same lack of green beans during WW II, the company improved the flavor of the substitute drink, renaming it Koff. (The slogan was “Until we can enjoy IDEE KAFFEE again, Koff is a good alternative.”) J.J.’s sons were able to navigate the company through the wars, and the company quickly rebounded through the surviving loyal employees and customers. The sons died within 2 years of each other, about a decade before the 100th anniversary of the company. By then, the fourth generation of the family was managing the company. By 1980, Eilles and Movenpick coffees were part of the Darboven family.

Today, the company sources only premium green coffee from the finest coffee growing regions. Quality and stability are their guiding principles.


We enjoy all the coffees J.J. Darboven produces, and we know you will too! This week, get 15% off your order of these great brands: Eilles, IDEE, Movenpick, and Mozart. Better yet, no minimum order required!*

J.J. Darboven Brands: A World Of Flavor

2017_eilles-kaffee-logoEilles Kaffee, from Germany, is all about enjoying the good things in life. A distinctive and special blend of beans, Eilles Kaffee uses highland beans, which assures a high-quality coffee. For more than 130 years, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand. In fact, Bavarian King Ludwig II served only Eilles coffee at court during his reign in the later 1800s. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant, and Eilles Kaffee Arabica in ground. The beautiful blue and gold packaging evokes the royal court; the aroma and flavor are unforgettable.

IDEE-Logo-WPAlso from Germany is IDEE Kaffee, a wonderfully mild classic coffee. The roasting process IDEE uses eliminates any undesirable elements with the beans prior to roasting, reducing bitter flavors that may result from regular roasting. This leaves a mild tasting coffee, with higher caffeine content, which is easier on the stomach. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees.

2017_movenpick-logoMovenpick, from Switzerland, produces coffee that has been roasted gently and carefully follows an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground and whole bean, 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.

2017_mozart-kaffee-logoFinally, a coffee from Austria named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is a symphony of flavors, notes and aroma. Well-balanced, delicious and irresistible, this coffee brand produces. We have a Mild ground coffee that is light and Intensive ground and instant, with a powerful aroma and taste.

Try any or all of these, and you won’t be disappointed.

Cold Brew + Red Wine = Is This A New Trend?

A California winemaker has announced the release next month of a red wine blend that features cold brew coffee. Coffee wines, as these blends are known, tend to be rich and aromatic drinks, with lots of flavor notes from both the coffee and the wine. This new brew is a limited release. Other coffee wines have been made by soaking green coffee in red wine, or by combining Cabernet or Chardonnay with espresso or cappuccino. We like our wine, and we like our coffee, but we aren’t so sure about enjoying them together. Tell us what you think on our Facebook page!

Get Cozy with Scandinavian Coffee from Enjoy Better Coffee

All Together Now!

Coffee-In-The-Fjords-Scandi-BannerHere at Enjoy Better Coffee, we take our coffee seriously. It is one of the reasons we love Scandinavian coffee, the highlight of this week’s newsletter. Scandinavian coffee is specially roasted in Scandinavian style: The highest quality of green coffee beans are roasted to highlight the flavors unique to each bean type. While some might say that part of that style is to roast ‘lighter,’ that is not entirely accurate. Scandinavian coffee runs the gamut from very light to medium/dark, all of which the Scandinavians maintain allows the drinker to explore a new set of flavors.

In addition, you gotta love a place that has protected coffee breaks by law.

fika-spread-300pxThat’s right! In Sweden and Finland, Fika is a seriously taken ‘coffee break’ where school and work are stopped two times a day, mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Workers can earn 5 minutes for every hour on the clock for their fika (or fika pause). The key here is that it’s rarely a solitary event. Friends, coworkers, family – all get together over steaming cups of coffee and cookies, cake, or a warm cinnamon roll.

This experience is not just in these 2 Nordic countries. In Norway and Denmark, they also promote the “coziness” of being together with a hot drink, a sweet treat and friends (the Danes call it ‘hygge’), and how can we not love that?!


We just got a new shipment of Scandinavian coffee and this week, our favorite Nordic brands: Paulig, Arvid Nordquist, and Lofbergs Lila is 15% with no minimum order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Fresh Off The Boat

We have 3 brands of coffee from Scandinavia that we have just restocked with fresh coffee: Arvid Nordquist, Lofbergs Lila and Paulig.

All began as family businesses well over 100 years ago and all are leaders in the Scandinavian market today.

Arvid-Advert-3Blends-NLArvid Nordquist opened a small shop in Stockholm, Sweden in 1884. Today they are a leading company in premium coffee, food and wine products. We have Arvid Nordquist Classic in 3 roasts: Medium(balanced), Extra Dark (intense), and Gran Dia (medium roast, with floral and nut tones) all in ground.

Lofbergs-Advert-NLLofbergs Lila started in Sweden by 3 brothers. Today, it is one of the largest coffee roasters in the Nordic countries. The company also owns a tea company and sponsor a Swedish hockey team and an Arena. We have 3 flavorful roasts in ground: Medium roast (perfect anytime!); Jubilee roast (rich with sweet notes), and Kharisma (dark, intense, nutty with subtle fruit notes).

Paulig-Advert-wDKRoast-NL-EPaulig was started by a German immigrant in 1876 in Helsinki, Finland. Today the international Paulig Group considers Paulig coffee to be their flagship coffee operation. We have two roasts: Juhla Mokka in ground (strong) and Presidentti in ground (rich with a strong flavor), plus a great new roast from Paulig, just in: Juhla Mokka Dark, a medium/dark roast with chocolate and toasted notes.

Four Coffee Trends For 2018 (And A Sale!)

Just a couple of weeks ago, we wrote about current food trends in general, and one of the top five is cold brew coffee. This week, we focus on the coffee-specific trends this year.

First, let’s talk coffee shakes. While some of us like the acid and bitter flavors of black coffee, not everyone does. Some, especially younger drinkers, prefer sweet, creamy coffee drinks. Blend coffee with milk, vanilla, sugar, ice, and flavored syrup to enjoy this decadent treat.
Coffee-Shakes-Banner

Cafe-Au-Lait-Bowls-CR-250px

Next up: Ready to drink coffee, such as bottles and cans of frappuccinos, or cold brews that are easy and convenient to carry and drink. Many are already sweetened, so it’s another type of sugary treat.

Our third trend is about appearance over function. Café au Lait bowls, that is coffee with milk served in and drunk from small bowls, often decorated with unique and artistic designs.

Our last trend this week is a favorite of ours, gourmet coffee. This term refers to higher-quality coffee, perhaps single origin beans or carefully selected blends from all over the coffee-growing world. Think artisan, special roasts, organic, and beans grown in special regions (for example, high in the mountains, or on the slopes of a volcano).

Coffee-PlantationCR-650px

At Enjoy Better Coffee, we have the best of the best of European coffees. We have coffee from Germany, France, Holland, Italy, Austria, and the Nordic countries. Here is a small sample of the special coffees we have:

Coffee roasted over wood from Italian producer Sant Eustachio

Beans grown at the foot of Kilimanjaro are used for German Dallmayr Kilimanjaro, a balanced coffee with floral notes

Beans selected especially because of their unique qualities as in Eilles Kaffee Gourmet coffee

Beans selected and roasted to create a mild coffee as with Italy’s Segafredo Espresso Mild, German Tchibo Feine Milde, Swiss-based Davidoff Café Fine Aroma, and Austria’s Mozart Kaffee Mild, to name a few

Secrets Of A Long Life (Hint: It Includes Coffee!)

According to a new study, drinking coffee and beer every day leads to a decreased likelihood of premature death. Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, were looking for common elements in the lives of those over the age of 90. The team spent the past 15 years surveying more than 14,000 people in their 90’s about diet, activities, medical history, and medications, then followed up every six months to perform neurological tests. They found that two daily cups of coffee and beer, along with exercise and hobbies, led to a longer life. If your hobbies are drinking coffee and beer, it has to be even better, right?

Wake Up and Smell The Makeup

Coffee-MakeupA cosmetic company has created lipsticks, eyeshadows and bronzers, all with a delicious coffee scent. We are told the aroma of the makeup is subtle, much like you might experience walking past a hot cup of coffee. Apparently, the team behind the cosmetics is comprised of coffee lovers, so they were compelled to release this new line. The palette is only neutral tones, while the bronzers come in two shades: Latte and Mocha.

Ohh La La! French Products In The Spotlight At Enjoy Better Coffee

“La vie est faite de petits bonheurs.”

The sentiment above translates as “Life is made of small pleasures” and this week’s newsletter on French coffee is all about the pleasures of French coffee! And, of course, we’ve included a sweet deal on all our French products!

EBC-French-Coffee-Banner-E2

Coffee first came to France in the 1600’s with an Ottoman ambassador to the court of King Louis XIV. The diplomat brought sacks of coffee described as a magical beverage, and mixed in small amounts of cloves, cardamom and sugar to serve. The ambassador also introduced all the accoutrements for drinking coffee: china dishes, embroidered napkins and, of course, a pot in which to create the magic.

Within a couple years, a coffee-drinking booth was opened under a tent at a festival, with Turkish waiters selling the coffee from cups on trays as they wandered through the crowd. The earliest Parisian coffee houses began to pop-up around town.

The Café de Procope opened in 1686, and the owner added coffee to the menu soon after.
Procope2
This brought in many patrons, including French actors, authors and musicians. (The same café in the next century would be fundamental in the debate over the French Revolution.)

In the early 1700’s, Louis XIV received a coffee tree from the Dutch (another great coffee bastion) to install in the Royal Garden. Eventually, by the mid-1800’s, there were more than 3000 cafes in Paris. By that time, the first percolating coffee maker had been invented, and soon after a maker that used extraction pressure was introduced – and yes, it was the precursor of the espresso machine that debuted the next century.

Today, cafes in Paris and across France, offer special food and fresh-roasted coffee beans gathered from the best growers around the world.


At www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have the best of the best in French coffee. Our coffee is direct from France, and made for the European market, so the flavors and aromas are slightly darker and richer than coffee made for the U.S. market. Below, we highlight some of our French favorites, but regardless of what you choose, you will get 15% off your order of any of our French products, no minimum order required.*

Please use coupon code: FRENCH15

*Discount valid from 2/25/2018 through 11:59PM ET 2/27/2018 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order on French brands Carte Noire, Grand Mere, Maison du Cafe, Ricore, Leroux, and A l’Ancienne. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

So Many Choices, So Little Time

CN-GM-MD-FRENCH-LogosCarte Noire literally “black card”, was introduced almost 35 years ago by Rene Monnier, a coffee blender and roaster whose family had been producing Grand Mere for more than 10 years before that. The Monniers chose the name and black and gold packaging to reflect sophistication and elegance. Carte Noire remains today one of France’s most popular coffee brands. We have it in ground, whole beans, instant, pods, espresso and decaffeinated.

Even better, Carte Noire instant coffee is already on sale — so you’ll be getting an even better deal using the discount above!

Grand Mere started by the Monnier family 47 years ago, is named after grandmother because she “knows how to make a good coffee.” Today, the brand is one of the top coffee brands in France. We have Degustation (Tasty) and Familial (Family) roasts.

Maison Du Café is made by Douwe Egberts France, where their advertising slogan is “Each cup offers a moment of pleasure and friendship.” Ma Tradition is a combination of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans, roasted in the Douwe Egberts process, which produces a fragrant and balanced medium roast coffee. LOR Doux is soft and sweet from the Arabica coffee beans.


And, It’s Not Just About Coffee…

Looking for something different? Try one or all of these delicious and convenient drinks:

Ricore: Instant drink made with coffee and chicory; add hot milk for a special café au lait.

Leroux: Instant drink with chicory; the drink has a full flavor, a smooth texture and no caffeine. The drink is delicious alone or mixed with coffee or hot chocolate. This is a five-star alternative to coffee.

L’Ancienne Instant Chocolate: Fine powdered French chocolate with sugar and Bourbon vanilla, the cocoa is rich and thick and unforgettable.

All of these are available with the discount above.

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.*

Dallmayr: What’s Brewing

CNN Hero Of the Year Runs A Coffee Shop

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.

A Traditional Italian Christmas

Christmas in Italy is one big celebration from early December into January! The holidays are filled with celebrations, parades, music, food and a deep reverence for the religious aspects of the season.

In Italy, people wish each other “Buon Natale!” Christmas decorations are put up the day following the celebration of Mary’s Immaculate Conception, December 8th. Everyone displays a version of the Nativity scene, called the “Presepe.” In fact, Naples is the home to an extremely elaborate and detailed Nativity scene with more than six hundred decorations and figures. Another symbol of the season is the Poinsettia plant, displayed and sold everywhere.

Milan-Cathedral-Christmas-Banner

la-befana-300pxA unique aspect of gift-giving in Italy is the arrival of La Befana, a kindly old witch. She rides a broomstick, dressed in patched clothing, but smiling as she delivers bags of gifts for the children by way of the chimney. Good children get candy; bad children get lumps of coal.

La Befana sweeps up after herself when she leaves too. She does this the night before Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas, in early January. A large family meal is shared on Epiphany, which officially ends the Italian holiday season.


What is served at every holiday meal in Italy? You guessed it: Delicious Italian coffee! This week, we are offering 15% off our specialty Italian roasters including Bristot, Caffe Vergnano, Hausbrandt, illy, Miscela D’Oro, Pellini, and Sant Eustachio at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*
