Jacobs Kaffee In The Spotlight

Think Outside the Trash. Recycle.

In Germany, recycling is taken very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that according to a 2017 year-end report, Germany is top in recycling compared to other countries in the world. German households alone recycle 57 percent of their waste. Perhaps that’s because the government provides funding, accessibility and incentives that encourage recycling. Some would say this is thinking outside the box.

JACOBS-BANNER

The top five recycling countries on the list are all within 3 percentage points in the rankings. The report finds Austria in second place, followed by South Korea in third, by only a mere .1 percent difference. Wales, in the United Kingdom, comes in fourth. That country has an ambitious plan to achieve zero waste by 2050. Switzerland rounds out the top 5.

coffee-cups-trash-200pxJust last week, in Europe, the European Union (EU) began debating a strategy for managing plastic waste, with a focus on recycling, renewables & responsible sourcing. One way the EU intends to facilitate this is by making recycling profitable for business. Regardless, single-use coffee cups, such as those at a café, will be banned in the EU by 2030.

It shouldn’t be surprising then to learn that Jacobs Coffee, from Germany, and a staple in German households, takes corporate responsibility seriously too. Jacobs adheres to guidelines for responsible sourcing, including UTZ and Rainforest Alliance-certified suppliers, while also working with farmers to address sustainability issues. As part of their commitment, Jacobs makes continuous business improvements to minimize the impact of the production and delivery on the environment. Within their parent company, JDE, Jacobs holds a market share of more than 25% in their home country.

Coffee In The News

One Bar of Coffee, Please

In a few cities in the Baltic states of Europe, you can consume your coffee not in a glass, but as a bar (think candy-bar). A start-up company, with the goal of making specialty coffee more accessible, has begun selling edible coffee that tastes like coffee and has caffeine. The makers state that the bars give 4 hours of energy because it is absorbed more slowly in the body; it can go anywhere, and uses the entire coffee cherry. One of the 2 types of bars available is made with beans and the cascara, the fruity part that encases the bean. The flavor is described as dried fruit. The other type, for what it’s worth, is the Milk version. Made the same way as the first bar, but with milk powder added in, the company likens it to a mild cappuccino. We couldn’t help but wonder: Does it melt in your hand?

Let’s Talk Douwe Egberts!

But First, This:

People in the U.S. are talking about the recent big winners of two multi-state lotteries. This month, in the Netherlands, people are talking about the Postcode Lottery, a large charity lottery, supported by a series of draws every month that can win money for the resident with that postcode (zip code). In addition, there are other drawings, such as one for the New Year, and one where an entire street can win. Fifty percent of the lottery’s revenue is donated to a variety of charities. (Read more about that below.)

Dutch-Money-650px
Postcode-Loterij-in-Eastermar-winners-300px-eThis year, the New Year’s Postcode Lottery’s big prize – almost 27 million euros ($32 million USD) – went to two homeowners with the exact postcode in the small village of Eastermar (pop: 1500 residents). Additionally, 272 residents each won fifty-five thousand euros. One of those winners is lobbying the other local winners to donate to a fund she began to benefit everyone in the village. The fund will be used to organize local activities. She hopes to get one hundred Euros from each of them, giving them a great start to the fund. Sounds like a win-win situation to us!

PS: It seems that many people in the Netherlands play this lottery for fear of missing out if their code is drawn. It costs about $15 USD per draw.


Don’t Miss Out On This Bonus Deal

DE AROMA ROOD WB NL 200PXWe are overstocked with Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood Whole Beans and our mistake is your opportunity to stock up on this delicious and popular coffee. The blend of beans is balanced and smooth, a perfect example of Douwe Egberts coffee. Grinding beans right before brewing the coffee is the best way to have fresh-tasting coffee.

More About Charities That Benefit From The Postcode Lottery

Since 1989, dozens of charities (99 in 2017) have received more than 5.1 billion euros ($6 billion USD) from the Dutch Postcode Lottery. While a majority are in the Netherlands, the charities include organizations in other parts of the world, such as Britain and in the U.S. Recipient organizations must be working towards a humane and green world. These groups include UNICEF, WWF, Doctors Without Borders, African Parks Network, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Rocky Mountain Institute, among many others. Approximately 17 million people live in the Netherlands; approximately 3 million people play the lottery.


Coffee In The News

Storing Coffee Should Be Cool

coffee-container-100pxAlways store coffee, whether ground or beans, to protect from air, moisture, heat and light. Store beans in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. The container should be kept in a dark and cool location. This works for coffee both before and after its best-by date.

Coffee Grounds Make Biodiesel Fuel

A partnership among a petroleum company and two biodiesel firms is producing a fuel made from the extracted oils of used coffee grounds. The fuel blend is named B20, and combines the coffee ground oils, other recycled waste fats and oils, and a mineral diesel fuel. The product is 85% more carbon-efficient than standard diesel, achieving more than 10% CO2 reduction over the standard. So far, the business has produced 6,000 liters of pure coffee oil, enough to produce 30,000 liters of biofuel.

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.*

Please use coupon code: DALLMAYR15

*Discount valid from 1/07/2018 through 11:59PM ET on 1/09/2018 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Dallmayr Kaffee products. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

Dallmayr: What’s Brewing

DM-New-Products-Advert-NL

If you’ve been reading our newsletters for a while, then you know we think a French Press is one of the best ways to make and enjoy coffee. Dallmayr French Press Selection, one of their newer roasts, is now back in stock. This blend was 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.

All of these are extremely aromatic, so try one, two or three today. For the Nespresso coffee maker, in addition to the 10 roasts in capsules, we have four new 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).

Dallmayr Capsa capsules for the Nespresso machine are one of our top-selling products, and invariably sell out, so you must order today!

Dallmayr: So many options, so little time!

CNN Hero Of the Year Runs A Coffee Shop


2498202_Beaut_26Amy Wright, of North Carolina, won the CNN Hero of the Year last month for her support and employment of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 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.*

bristot-nl-iconBristot started as a small roaster in 1919, this company expertly chooses the best beans, roasting them in ways that best showcase their natural flavors. Try Bristot’s flagship product Tiziano Whole Beans for real Italian espresso, including notes of nut, fruit and chocolate with an excellent aftertaste.

One Last Italian Holiday Tradition

cuccia-wheat-kernals-300pxSaint Lucy’s day on December 13th celebrates light in the darkness, with the winter solstice coming. The festival is marked with fireworks or bonfires. In Naples, fires are lit at dawn along the beachfront leading to the church. In Sicily, people eat a traditional pudding made from boiled wheat kernels.

As they say in the Netherlands, ‘Vrolijk Kerstfeest’

Cheerful Christmas!

dutch-ornaments-christmas-tree-600px

dutch-horns-at-christmas-300pxIt’s that time of year, just as in other parts of Europe and beyond, when adults and children alike focus on and celebrate the Christmas holiday. There might be a Christmas hamper (box or package) from your employer, time to decorate the tree (only after St. Nicolas Day), a 4’ horn to sound at dawn, and most importantly, time spent with the people you love.

In fact, researchers found that in the Netherlands, spending time with family was identified as the most important part of the Christmas season.

Advocaat-Dutch-Eggnog-250px-eThe big day itself is actually two days in the Netherlands. The Dutch celebrate First (25th) and Second (26th) Christmas Days as time spent with family, and indulging in the holiday feast. Traditional holiday favorites include oliebollen (heavy donut), Christmas fruit bread, roasted venison or goose with plenty of vegetables, and the Dutch version of eggnog, Advocaat, actually a creamy brandy custard, often eaten with a spoon.


The Dutch find this time of year special, just as we do. Indulge in the wonder of it all with authentic Dutch coffee from Douwe Egberts. As our gift to you, we’ll take 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts products on www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: DUTCH15

*Discount valid from 12/10/17 through 11:59 PM EST on 12/12/17 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com for Douwe Egberts products with no minimum order. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale Douwe Egberts products.

We Have Douwe Egberts For Everyone

DE-December-NL

Our Douwe Egberts range includes ground coffee, whole bean, instant, and some fun coffee gift sets. Grinding the beans just before brewing produces the best-tasting coffee. Our whole bean selection includes Douwe Egberts Excellent Aroma, a perfect medium roast, with a smooth and full-bodied taste and a strong finish. For something a little darker, try Mocca Aroma, full-bodied, with spice and chocolate notes. If you are looking for a daily drinker, we have Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood, a medium, smooth, and aromatic blend of Robusta and Arabica beans. We have these great roasts in ground too.

Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground is a lighter roast, silky-smooth and fruity. Douwe Egberts also makes an Aroma Rood Decaf in ground. You won’t miss out on any flavor, just the caffeine.

For convenience, and as a great gift for people who travel or spend a lot of time on the road or just like to grab coffee and go, we have 5 roasts of instant coffee. Get Aroma Rood, Pure Gold, Pure Indulgence, Pure Decaf, and Moccona Classic Decaf in beautiful, resealable jars that can be repurposed later. Our Pure Gold instant is also available in easy to use sticks in two package sizes.

Check out our selection of cups and our prepacked variety packages. These make great gifts too.


Holiday Ordering Deadlines

presents-on-a-tree-300pxLast Friday, December 8th was our suggested deadline for ordering without having to pay for expedited shipping. If you absolutely must have your order before the holiday, we suggest you choose from one of our expedited shipping options available when checking out.


Other Dutch Traditions

Christmas Markets are popular in many European cities. Amsterdam has large markets, usually with stalls in wooden cabins, selling food, clothing and gifts. You will also find a Gebakkraam, a food truck with specialties such as appelflappen and oliebollen. One of the most popular markets is the Market at Museumplein, also known as Christmas Village on Ice, where the market stands next to a large public ice rink. Add in some live music and entertainment, and you will have a true Dutch Christmas Market experience.</p>
<hr />
<h3>One More Very Dutch Part of the Holiday</h3>
<p><img class=Gezelligheid is the most important part of the Christmas Season. This Dutch word is difficult to translate, but in general, it refers to the feeling of being with your loved ones, and/or reuniting with someone after a long separation, and/or a general sense of togetherness (think warm and fuzzy feelings).

Lastly, New Year’s Eve (Oud en Nieuw) in the Netherlands, people congregate in the central squares of the cities. Around 11PM, rounds of fireworks begin to welcome the coming year. At the stroke of midnight, more fireworks, more celebrations and more fun!
