Munich and Bremen: Fun Fairs, Parades, Oompah Bands and Beverages

This week, we are highlighting two historic German coffee brands, each based in one of the above notable cities, and both extremely popular brands of coffee inside (and outside) German borders.

image6119319Dallmayr Coffee began in Munich, is headquartered there today, and is still run by family members. During the first 100 years of operation, the company supplied coffee to many royal courts of Europe.

Jacobs Coffee started as a small shop in the center of Bremen, and expanded as demand for their products grew. Today Jacobs is available in more than 20 countries, and a best-seller in shops today.

image6119182-200-CIn Munich, the big celebration known as Oktoberfest to the world, ‘Wiesn’ in Munich, just opened festivities yesterday! Today, there is a traditional costume parade, and tents are filled with long wooden tables, some holding up to 10,000 guests.

image6119312 (1)One tent run by a local café and bakery will actually be baking pies and cakes inside the tent, which holds about 400 people, and has a band playing every evening. Be sure to get yourself a fresh pretzel when you grab a Dallmayr coffee there. Interestingly, you can make reservations in a tent to be assured of a place to sit, eat and drink.

In Bremen, the biggest celebration in this city is the Freimarkt, a celebration lasting 17 days starting in mid-October. There are more than 50 cutting-edge fair rides, lots of beer, a big parade, and regularly draws more than four million people. If you recall the story of the Bremen town musicians, then you should be amused that all around the town, you will find sculptures of the four animals. Be sure to rub the donkey’s hoof for good luck! Bremen is also known for beer (Becks Brewery is located here) and for coffee, Jacobs, of course.

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 have 10 Capsa roasts capsules for the Nespresso maker, including: Prodomo (the flagship blend, strong aroma, full-bodied and smooth); Espresso Dark Roast (intense, full-bodied, with fruit and chocolate notes), and Vanillla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma). Vanilla is a perfect addition to a special coffee drink, but any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own (milk’s optional)!

We have Jacobs Kronung coffee, the flagship roast, in instant, whole bean, and regular and decaffeinated in ground. 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. Jacobs Crema is a smooth and balanced medium roast

Tchibo Exclusive Ground coffee is great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, and we have the roast in Instant too. Tchibo Beste Bohne, literally ‘best bean’, is made from the best available beans and carefully harvested, processed and roasted to perfection, and available in ground. Tchibo’s Espresso Milano Style is a medium/dark roast, intense, with a medium body and an excellent crema. Tchibo Black & White in instant and ground is full, intense and unique, a special coffee from Tchibo.

Eduscho Gala Nr. 1 Der Klassiker blends carefully selected beans roasted to a smooth, classic drink. If you like smooth, try Gala Mild coffee, naturally roasted for a balanced taste.

Davidoff Café Creation Superieure Jade instant coffee is a blend of choice Arabica beans from Colombia and Brazil, giving the coffee a pleasing body, sweet aroma, and a soft taste. Café Rich Aroma is an intense, full-bodied coffee that we have in ground and in instant coffee. Fine Aroma is mild with a delicate aroma and a soft texture and is available in ground and instant. For Nespresso makers, we have Nespresso-compatible capsules from Davidoff available in two roasts.

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.

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.


While Jacobs is popular in Germany and beyond, we want it to become one of your favorites. Try it in your own home, and prepare to be delighted! We are giving 15% off your order of Jacobs products at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*

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?

6 Current Coffee Trends + 1 Great Deal from Enjoy Better Coffee = Score!

For fun, this week we have gathered the scoop on 6 current coffee trends, including how you can recreate a few of them at home, should you feel so moved. Then, order coffee from us and we’ll give you $5 off your order of $30 or more.*

Here are the top 6 coffee trends for 2017, in no particular order:

1.  Gourmet Coffee varieties have made a big splash for coffee drinkers. Consumer consumption increased from 18 to 24 percent in just one year. More than half of all consumers, almost 60 percent, report they drank a cup of gourmet coffee in the last 24 hours.**

~At Enjoy Better Coffee, we have only premium and specialty coffees made in Europe for the European market.

2. Sparkling Coffee Soda is cold-brew coffee with lemon and tonic water, seltzer or flavored soda. Use the typical ratio of 1:1 coffee to water, replacing the water with something bubbly. Put a scoop of ice cream on top and you have a very special float.

3. Gin and Coffee Tonic, served in a glass, is made with 10ml (2 teaspoons) of cold-brew coffee added to a shot of gin. Add tonic, garnish with lemon.

4. Vietnamese Egg Coffee consists of one espresso and 3 tablespoons of condensed (not evaporated) milk that has been whisked with an egg yolk and a drop of vanilla into a meringue-like, creamy topping. Enjoy.

5. Coffee In A Cone probably won’t be available at your local café. But imagine this: A specially-made chocolate lined waffle cone that is leak-proof for 10 minutes, and is filled with a coffee latte.

6. More people than ever are drinking coffee daily, with all age groups showing an increase from last year. Up a mere 2 percent are the 18-24 year olds, while those aged 40-59 are up 11 percent from last year.**

Try one or more of our premium ground, whole bean and instant coffees. Find a great espresso roast. Bring home an assortment of pods or capsules. Whatever your choice, you’ll get $5 off your order of $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

**Per the National Coffee Association’s 2017 National Coffee Drinking Trends report

Interested in trying one or more of these trends? You’ll need this easy recipe for making cold-brew coffee. And maybe you will just create your own coffee trend!

How to Cold Brew:

1. Use a medium to coarse grind of coffee. Place the grounds in the bottom of a non-reactive container. Add cold water, using a 1:4 parts coffee-to-water ratio. Stir gently to combine.

2. Cover, then allow mixture to steep for 18-24 hours, either in or out of the refrigerator.

3. Strain the brewed coffee into a container to remove the grounds; it may take a few passes using paper towels, muslin or even a coffee machine filter. (If it remains cloudy, try using a larger grind next time.)

4. To make a coffee drink, try 1:1 parts coffee to water. You may have to adjust the ratio, up to 1:8 parts coffee to water, to get the flavor you like.

5. The concentrate should be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container.
