The Brands of Tchibo In The Spotlight

Germany is a pivotal player in the history of coffee, importing, selling and serving coffee as far back as the 1700’s. Coffee was popular among the upper classes and royalty in the early days, but flourished throughout all the classes by the 1800’s. Women spent time in the coffee shops, chatting with their lady friends, much to the dismay of their menfolk. In fact, the term “coffee klatch” is from a German word that translates to gossip and coffee.

Black-Forest-Cake-275Today, Germans are one of the top consumers of coffee, with more than 80 percent of Germans over the age of 14 drinking coffee. Some of the tastiest German cakes are served with coffee as part of the coveted afternoon break, held especially on Sundays and holidays. Some “kuchen” (cake) favorites: Black Forest cake, cheesecake, and a specialty Honey-Almond cake.

The Brands Of Tchibo

Tchibo, Eduscho and Davidoff are all premium roasted coffee. Check out some of our favorites from these brands:

Davidoff-Cafe-Logo-NL-BlockDavidoff Café is a luxury brand that creates smooth and flavorful coffee. One of our newest items from Davidoff Café is Crema Intense instant coffee, a special coffee. Another special instant is the Limited Edition Elements, and we have four other Davidoff instants too. Davidoff makes delicious ground coffee in both Espresso 57 and Rich Aroma. We also have 2 types of whole beans, Espresso 57 and Crème. Finally, for the Nespresso drinkers, we have three different roasts, plus a capsule variety package. All Davidoff products are available for the discount above, including items on sale.

2015_Tchibo LogoTchibo is a top seller, with several premium products. Try Tchibo Exclusive Ground coffee, great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, also available in Instant. We have several ground coffees from the Tchibo range: Feine Milde (fine and mild), Beste Bohne (100% Arabica), Gold Selection (aromatic, unique, medium blend), Family (full and strong), and the exclusive Black and White instant (full intensity blend). Tchibo also makes two Espresso roasts in whole beans, Sicilia Style and Milano Style.

2015_Eduscho logoEduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 1950’s, soon followed by stores in major German cities. Introduced in 1959, Gala coffee was sold in bakeries which further popularized the brand in German culture. In 1980, Gala coffee was renamed to Gala Number 1 (Nr. 1) to reflect its status in the market and its flavor and quality.


Meanwhile, in Germany…

Just last month, in Berlin, a symposium hosted by The Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC) presented the latest research on coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes. Results were presented regarding research on the association between coffee consumption and type 2 diabetes risk. One professor presented his own additional analysis after reviewing 30 separate studies, with more than 1.1 million total participants. The results suggest that drinking 3-4 cups of coffee per day is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, in both men and women. The results showed the same reduced risk with drinkers of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee. Other potential benefits include liver support, with lower risks of depression and the onset of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Coffee-Shoes-LGCoffee is great to drink regardless of its potential health benefits, but we were interested to learn that a German engineering firm has designed and produced sneakers that are made of fifty percent recycled coffee grounds. It is the upper portion of the shoe that utilizes the coffee, while the remainder of the shoe is maybe with recycled bottles, rubber and cork. They are produced in Italy, and available in high- and low-top unisex styles. This is the second type of vegan-friendly shoe the company has made, the previous version was made of mushroom-based leather.

Choco-RoadFinally, this isn’t about coffee, but about chocolate, and worth the read. A few days ago, one ton of liquid German chocolate flowed down a road after leaking out of a storage tank in a chocolate factory. That’s right, chocolate flowed freely for nearly four miles of neighborhood street before hardening in the cold temperatures. More than 20 firefighters used hot water and blow torches to clean it up. (We’ll leave the Wonka jokes up to you!)

Germany: Passionate About Coffee

Germany, much like Italy, has played a pivotal role in the history of coffee in Europe. There were established coffeehouse in Germany as early as the 1670’s in Hamburg and Bremen, key shipping ports that ultimately brought coffee into Germany and eastern Europe. With the spread of coffeehouses over the next 50 years, women could be found frequenting the café, and even more shockingly, met and chatted with other women in the open. This was not happening in other countries, making Germany ahead of its time!

Kaffeeklatsch-German-Coffee-Banner-600px
One of Germany’s largest contributions to the long history of coffee is the humble coffee filter. That’s right, the almost-indispensable-disposable filter that keeps the grounds out of your cup and pot was created and sold by a German woman in the early 1900s. She loved drinking coffee but hated the mess of the grounds and cleaning up. At this time in coffee history, making coffee in Turkish style was common, which creates grounds in the cup. Melitta-BentzSome did try to strain the coffee through cloth, but none of it was easy. As her son would say later, she hated grounds in her cup. One morning in frustration, she grabbed a piece of blotter paper from her son’s school book sitting on the table (because writing was done with nibs dipped in ink wells). She strained the boiled coffee through the paper and an empire was born. She tested the process with friends at coffee afternoons, and eventually, she had the product patented. In the early days, the business was run out of the family home, so her two sons delivered products while her husband performed demos on how to use the product. (He eventually outsourced that job to “demonstration ladies” employed for just that.) You may have already guessed that this woman was Melitta Bentz, from Dresden. Today the company employs more than 4000 people worldwide with revenue close to $2 billion USD.

Maple Is The New Pumpkin-Spice

maple-latteIt’s that time of year for pumpkin spice to make its grand but seasonal entrance. Between a cooking magazine predicting maple syrup will be bigger than pumpkin spice and the caloric and sugar counts of maple latte vs the spice latte (lower on both counts), maple is poised to take the crown. What do you think of maple or spice lattes? Tell us on our Facebook page!

The Rich Tradition of German Coffee

Fact: More than 80 percent of the entire German population above the age of 14 drinks coffee. That’s even more than in the United States. Jacobs Kronung is the most popular coffee drunk by German consumers. In the top five most popular brands in Germany, Dallmayr and Tchibo are in the third and fifth spots.

German-Coffee-NL-Banner-80518

This week, Jacobs, Dallmayr and Tchibo are in our spotlight, along with these other German coffee roasters: Eilles Kaffee, IDEE Kaffee, Eduscho, and Davidoff.

We have shared the history of coffee in Germany, so you may recall that coffee houses were open to both men and women in the earliest days, back in the 17th century. Women were able to sit down inside and meet with other ladies to chat. Men grumbled, and it came to be referred to as coffee and gossip (“kaffeeklatsch”), the term well-embedded in the language by the 19th century.

Today, with family and friends, coffee is served with cake (“kaffee and kuchen klatsch”), as a late afternoon break, and on holidays and Sundays. Honey almond cake, cheesecakes, fruitcakes, and the iconic Black Forest cake are some of the most popular.

Did You Know…?

> A German woman is responsible for creating the coffee maker filter, so we have her to thank for being able to drink ground-free coffee.

> Germans drink more coffee than beer or water on average.

Hamburg-cropped> Many of the brands above are based in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany. Hamburg is a major global trading port, located on the Elbe River, in northern Germany. The city is a popular tourist destination, with major European education and research industries, cultural and artistic venues. And, of course, the Beatles were greatly influenced by, and even performed there in their early years.


Have You Tried…?

EBC-German-Coffee-Brands-NL-80518Try Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, and instant, and you’ll appreciate the distinct aroma and flavor.

IDEE Kaffee is delicious, mild coffee, with a higher caffeine content. Because of special processing, the coffee is very gentle on the stomach. We have balanced IDEE Kaffee in ground.

Dallmayr French Press Selection is an extra-coarse blend created with help from a popular French Press maker. The blend is 100% Arabica beans, with a floral and spicy aroma. We also have 3 very special blends: Neiva (spicy), Kilimanjaro (light and floral) and Granverde (nutty and soft). All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs.

We also have 3 new roasts from Jacobs new line of whole beans:  Jacobs Crema Intenso is a full-bodied dark roast. Jacobs Espresso is intense and velvety with spicy notes.

Made From Coffee For Coffee

coffee-cups-from-recycled-coffee-groundsA German designer and a Berlin start-up company have partnered to create reusable coffee cups from coffee grounds and wood particles. The components are combined to create a liquid that can be injection molded to create the espresso, cappuccino, and travel cups. The coffee grounds come from cafes in Berlin, and the wood is from sustainable sources. The dark, speckled cups are all dishwasher safe and durable. Prices range from $17 USD for one cup to sets of 8 espresso or 6 cappuccino cups, with saucers, for about $140 USD. The products were awarded the Red Dot Award for design just this year. Reuse, check. Recycle, check. Reduce, check.
