Our Nordic Coffee is Delicious, and Here’s Why.

Drink Coffee. Be Happy.

EBC-Scandi-Banner-062319-CR
Once again, the Nordic countries are five of the top 10 happiest countries in the world. That is according to the World Happiness Report, which ranked 156 countries for 2019 by how happy their citizens self-identified their feelings. The report looks at factors such as life expectancy, trust, generosity, and freedom.

whr-2019

Finland was at the top of the list, followed by Norway, Denmark, and Iceland. Sweden came in at number seven, the entire group scoring high marks in all the categories.

Arvid-Advert-3Blends-NLArvid Nordquist opened a small shop in Stockholm, Sweden in 1884. Today Arvid Nordquist is a leader in premium coffee, food and wine products. We offer three roasts: Classic Gran Dia, , Extra Dark roast, and Medium roast, all exceptional examples of Swedish coffee roasting. In addition, all three are UTZ Certified and CO2 Compensated (you can read more about these organizations on the product page). Classic Gran Dia is a medium to dark roast, full-bodied, with nut and floral notes, with a nice finish. Extra Dark is full-bodied, and intense, with just the right amount of bitterness. Medium roast is balanced, with chocolate and spice notes.

Lofbergs-Swedish-Fika-3Roast-Advert-NLLofbergs, one of the largest coffee roasters in the Nordic countries, is based in Sweden. We offer three exemplary roasts made from 100% Arabica beans: Swedish Fika Medium Roast ground coffee, Swedish Fika Dark Roast ground coffee, and Swedish Fika Organic Medium Roast. Dark Roast creates a coffee that is rich and full (roast level 4 of 5). Medium Roast is a light roast (2 of 5) with a rich taste and aroma. We have Organic Medium Roast, gently roasted (2 of 5), with a sweet and mild flavor. All three roasts consist of a minimum of thirty percent coffee coming from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Farms.

Paulig-Advert-wHeinoarominen-2018-NLPaulig, from Finland, roasts and packages their coffee out of their facilities in Helsinki. We offer two roasts. Juhla Mokka Ground Coffee is light-roasted, rich, balanced and intense blend of beans from South America and Africa. Presidentti Ground Coffee is a light roast (1 of 5) from a blend of beans grown in Africa and delivers a strong and rich coffee. These coffees are tasty examples of Finnish coffee.

Try any of these to experience the best in regional coffee. We get it directly from Europe, so you are getting coffee made for the European market. Maybe you will find the secret to (coffee) happiness in one of these brands!


Nordic Life In The News

It’s A Furniture Store. It’s A Chain Restaurant. It’s Both.

ikeaYou may already know that IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer. There are stores in 38 countries around the world. It turns out that IKEA is also one of the largest international restaurant chains. Of course, they all offer their signature Swedish meatballs, but from there, menus vary by country. Choices on the menu are influenced by the location of the restaurant. For instance, a shop in France offers macarons; a restaurant in Winnepeg offers poutine (French fries with gravy and cheese, a national staple); in India, enjoy curry and biryani.

Netherlands Wins at Eurovision

What is the Eurovision Contest?

NL-Eurovision

The contest is an annual original song competition, with participants from primarily European countries, and has been broadcast on tv since it started in 1956. It is one of the most-watched non-sporting events, and the world’s longest-running program. It has been broadcast even in countries that do not compete.

abba-eurovsion-2Who is the most well-known winner of the contest? That would be ABBA, the Swedish band, in 1974, giving that country its first win. What song did they sing? That would be “Waterloo.”

Every year a theme for the contest is set (this year’s was “Dare to Dream”), with each country submitting one original song (which may or may not connect to the theme) and then the artist performs it live. Votes are cast for the songs from listeners in the participating countries via telephone or text, but be quick about it – they only get 15 minutes! There is a jury that participates in deciding the winner, and there is a point system relating to the votes (and it’s too complicated to detail here).

bar-eurovisionThis year’s winner was crowned last month, in Israel (the 2018 winner’s home country), for his original song “Arcade.” Duncan Laurence performed the piano ballad, winning strongly. The Grand Final show, with special guest appearances by Madonna (not her first at this annual event) and Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot, was hosted by Israeli celebs, including model Bar Refaeli. (You may recall Bar “making out” with a chubby, curly-headed guy in a Super Bowl commercial a few years back.)

Let’s join the rest of the world in celebrating a Dutch victory at this international contest. How do we celebrate the Netherlands? With Douwe Egberts coffee, of course!

DE-Sale-Advert-June-2019-NL

Like a darker roast? Try Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee, rich and full, with spice and cocoa notes. We have Mocca Aroma in ground and whole beans. Just a reminder that this Mocca coffee is not the kind of coffee/chocolate drink you order at a café, but instead refers to the type of bean.

Netherlands In The News

Commuters Bike During Strike

The end of May brought a public transportation strike in the Netherlands, affecting every sort of transport, and causing delays all over. But, the Dutch, being very practical, took to their bikes, riding to work via the motorways, to avoid traffic jams. Videos show huge groups of bikers driving along the highway, in special lanes just for the bikes. The strike was in response to government plans to increase the retirement age of workers.

That’s Some Expensive Fish!

herring-200The Dutch national food is considered to be herring by many aficionados, and herring season is open. The first barrel of Hollandse Nieuwe Herring was sold last week for 95 thousand euros ($107,000 USD), which was donated to a non-profit organization assisting families of children with cancer. Herring is served at most meals, and is often served with wine, pickled onions and gherkins.

Explore The Brands of Tchibo

The Rich Heritage of German Coffee

Germany has played an historic role in the history of coffee. Just a few highlights:

Coffee-Cantata-Banner

✔ Coffee was imported, sold and served as far back as 1723 when the first coffee house opened in Berlin.

✔ Coffee filters were invented there.

✔ In the heyday of the early coffee houses, German women were able to meet with friends and drink coffee when most other countries were not yet enlightened enough to let women be in public without a chaperone.

✔ The word “kaffeeklatsch” – coffee and gossip – came into common usage during this time.

✔ It was a German roaster who first sent coffee by mail to customers. (Tchibo)

✔ It was another German roaster who figured out that selling coffee in bakeries was a lucrative proposition. (Eduscho)

✔ A German composer named Johann Sebastian Bach composed the music and lyrics of “Coffee Cantata” in 1732. The story was a humorous comment on the coffee culture of the time.

✔ On average, Germans drink more coffee than beer or water.

✔ The second-largest city in Germany, Hamburg, is home to many historic brands, including Tchibo. The city is a major European venue for education and research industries, cultural activities and artistic endeavors.

Perhaps it is the history of coffee in Germany that set the stage, but it’s interesting that more than 80 percent of German adults drink coffee every day. Tchibo, one of our brands in the spotlight today, is in the top 5 coffee brands in Germany. In addition, we are also spotlighting two more German-related brands: Eduscho and Davidoff.

The Brands Of Tchibo

Davidoff-Cafe-Logo-NL-BlockDavidoff Café is a luxurious brand that produces smooth and flavorful coffee. Davidoff makes delicious ground coffee with Espresso 57 (intense espresso, mellow finish), Fine Aroma (delicate and mild), and Rich Aroma (spicy). We also have whole beans in Crème, an elegant, full-bodied espresso with a velvet crema. For the Nespresso drinkers, we have three different roasts, from Style (3 out of 6 intensity), to Elegance (4 intensity) to Prestige (5 intensity), plus all three are available in a variety package. If you like an instant, Davidoff has five different roasts, including Crema Intense and the Limited Edition Elements instant.

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 additional ground coffees from the Tchibo range: Feine Milde (fine and mild), Beste Bohne (100% Arabica), and Gold Selection (aromatic, unique, medium blend). Tchibo also makes Exclusive, a balanced coffee, and Exclusive Decaf, both in ground. Today, Tchibo is served around the world.

2015_Eduscho logoEduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 50’s, soon followed by stores in all the major German cities. Introduced in 1959, Gala coffee was sold in bakeries which served to further popularize 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. We have classic Gala Nr.1, an Arabica/Robusta blend and have Gala Mild again, which is a smooth, balanced, naturally mild coffee.

So Many Championships, So Little Time

woc-175In Berlin this past few days, the World of Coffee, an event organization that is part of the Specialty Coffee Association, hosted the World Latte Art Championship, World Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, and the World Cup Tasters Championship. Getting an early start every day, drinking, practicing and partying were scheduled through the 4 days of the competition. We are thinking that a lot of people were in ‘good spirits’ for this event!

Blak is Back, Sort Of

coke-plus-coffeeCoca-Cola has been quietly bringing to international markets a soft drink similar to their Blak version released over a decade ago. The company released Blak, a coffee-flavored version of their namesake drink in 2006, and stopped producing it only 2 years later. Chalked up to bad timing then, the company is betting that the world is ready for coffee/cola blends now. The new product contains more real coffee than Blak, and has more caffeine than regular Coke. It might be available in the United States next year, though plans are not defined yet. We think it’s time to brew an espresso.

Dallmayr – Coffee at its Finest

This week we highlight a premium coffee brand, one of the most popular brands in Germany.

Dallmayr-Banner-060219
The secret of Dallmayr coffee starts with the beans – the finest highland beans grown within the global coffee belt. Beans grown in the highlands, at 2600 feet and above, ripen more slowly in the cooler temperatures, allowing the flavor, aroma and acidity to develop gently over time.

Ninety-eight percent of the green coffee beans produced around the world are either Arabica beans or Robusta beans. Arabica beans, grown at higher altitudes, have a fine aroma and a fresh, smooth taste. Robusta beans are grown at lower altitudes, and have a smoky, woody, spicy aroma and taste.

Dallmayr has learned how to blend these beans into delicious coffee, from delicate notes to robust flavors. Happily, there is something for everyone.

Dallmayr also gives advice on how to drink coffee like the experts, referenced below.


In the meantime, get 15% off your order of Dallmayr, no minimum purchase required.*

Single Origin Coffee From Dallmayr

We also have 3 very special single origin coffees: Neiva, Kilimanjaro and Granverde. All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs. Single origin means that the beans are from one single producer, crop or region, and single origin coffee tends to be higher quality coffee.
Dallmayr-Single-Origin-NL-Advert
Dallmayr Neiva is grown in the coffee belt of Columbia. This medium roast is spicy, with a fresh taste and citrus notes.

Dallmayr Kilimanjaro is grown in Tanzania. These unique beans flourish at the foot of the mountain, giving the coffee a balanced flavor with a light floral note.

Try Dallmayr Grandverde, an organic ground coffee grown in Latin America. The coffee has a delicate nutty taste with a soft finish.

These coffees are perfect for coffee drinks, but we can tell you that any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own!


Assess Coffee Like The Experts

The overall impression that we get of a coffee variety is a result of the combination of aroma, body and acidity.

The aroma is perceived through smell (the nose) and taste (the tongue). While the nose can distinguish between an infinite number of nuances, the tongue recognizes the basics: sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami.

The body is the impression which the coffee leaves in the mouth. To get an idea of this, simply imagine the difference between water and milk in your mouth.

The acidity describes the lively, fruity properties of the coffee – which are particularly desired in arabica coffee.

A Flight of Latte Art

bird-latte-artA self-described “home barista” living in Japan has been creating lattes topped with colorful birds. Originally inspired by her own pink parrot, the artist’s work showcases all types of colorful birds, including cockatiels, parakeets and sparrows. Apparently she also takes requests, and will post her work next to the real bird. Referred to online as Bird Latte Art, the work is completed using colored foam. Her work is on Instagram, with more than 1000 posts of her art.
