This week we give you another chapter in our occasional series on Great European Coffee Cities. Enjoy!
When we talk about German coffee, brands that immediately come to mind are Dallmayr, Jacobs, Tchibo, Eduscho, Davidoff and our newest brands from German coffee producer J.J. Darboven, Eilles Kaffee and IDEE Kaffee.
More than half of these brands are based in Hamburg, Germany, a global trading port on the Elbe River, located about 70 miles from the North Sea. Hamburg has been a coffee capital ever since the first coffee house opened in 1677. By the turn of the 20th century, Hamburg was the largest coffee market in the world. Take a canal boat ride through the warehouse district to view the bridges between the buildings, learn about the history of the massive buildings and the multitudes of goods stored within, right on the water. At the city’s port district, the streets are lined with coffee shops where snacks and hot coffee are served with beautiful views over the water as you watch the cargo ships come and go. Also near the town center is a lake with boats afloat and cafes surrounding the water’s edge.
Drive an hour southwest on Autobahn 1 and stop in Bremen, another great coffee city in Germany, and where two of these German brands are based. Bremen is a major port on the Weser River. (The North Sea is less than 40 miles north of the city.) Many companies are based in this thriving metropolis, from automobiles, the largest industry, to food and beverage, second largest, to aerospace and shipping engineering, wind power and communications. The Market Square, with the Town Hall’s impressive Renaissance architecture on one side and famous historical and fictional characters connected to Bremen depicted in statues, draws tourists year-round.

The Netherlands has been home to Douwe Egberts for 260 years.
In the recent news, we discovered several ‘firsts’ for this beautiful country.
Did you know that an osprey (a fish eagle) hatched for the first time ever in the Netherlands? Normally, the country is a just a stop-over for these birds as they migrate to northern and eastern Europe. Last month, State Forestry officials noticed a pair brooding. The location is deliberately being kept secret.
Would you be surprised to know that the world’s first underwater musical band performed in Rotterdam just this week? (Yes, performing underwater is now a thing.) The band used specially-designed instruments and a special vocal technique for underwater singing. Check out the link on our Facebook page for more on this performance.
In the first of its kind, a medical center will depend on cloud-based data analysis for research from multiple sources within the campus. Data includes medical records, medical imaging and genomics, a cutting-edge discipline that leverages DNA data to improve drug treatment results with cancer and other diseases. Although the technology is in use for condition-specific research, this effort will be the first to aggregate data across an entire institution.
Douwe Egberts as a company boasts many firsts too. Douwe Egberts was one of the first coffee roasters in the history of roasting and selling coffee. The company was the first to start a loyalty program for frequent buyers. In 1925, the red DE seal appeared for the first time. In 1967, Douwe Egberts coffee was advertised on television for the first time. Douwe Egberts coffee is delicious, whether it is your first time trying it or just your first time trying it today.
So go ahead – try a new roast, stock up on your favorite roast or splurge on several roasts. We will give you 10% off your order on www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*
