Vrolijk Kerstfeest!

Or as we say: Happy Holidays!

In the Netherlands, home to Douwe Egberts, an authentic and traditional Dutch Christmas is all about family and being together. The Dutch have a word that epitomizes the closeness and warm feelings generated by being together. “Gezellig” is a sense of being cozy, enjoying food, drinks and laughter in a comforting place. Even better, a cozy Christmas is celebrated over two days. First Christmas is on the 25th, and Second Christmas is the 26th (sometimes referred to as Boxing Day). Special treats are enjoyed only during this season: Ginger nuts, egg-yolk liquor (eaten with a spoon), mulled wine (Santa’s favorite drink), and chocolate or pastry letters of your initials.


The Dutch enjoy this time of year for all its beauty and warmth. 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 $30 minimum order of Douwe Egberts products.

We Have Douwe Egberts For Everyone

Our Douwe Egberts range includes whole bean, ground and instant coffee.

DE-Retail-Line-NL-Nov2019

We recommend grinding the beans just before brewing, which really produces the best-tasting coffee. Our whole bean selection includes Douwe Egberts Excellent Aroma, made with 100% Arabica beans; it’s a perfect medium roast, with a smooth and full-bodied taste and a strong finish. (It’s available in ground too!) If you are looking for a delicious coffee anytime, try Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood, a medium, smooth, and aromatic blend of Robusta and Arabica beans.

Douwe Egberts makes delicious roasts available in ground. Douwe Egberts Select Aroma is a lighter roast, silky-smooth and fruity. Douwe Egberts Black is a dark, rich coffee. This customer favorite has been discontinued before, but it is back and as popular as ever. 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 love iced coffee drinks, we have 3 roasts of instant coffee. Get Pure Gold, Pure Indulgence, 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 4 package sizes, one includes a mug.

It Takes A Village To GLOW and To Make Delicious Coffee

Come Together, Right Now, Over Good Coffee

glow-festival

What happens when you get the best artists, designers, and engineers together to create something completely original, unique and special? When that happens in Eindhoven, Netherlands, as it does once a year, the results are, well, enlightening!

The GLOW Festival 2019, an outdoor light art event, opened yesterday in Eindhoven, and runs for the next week. Visitors to the free event walk a designated path approximately 5km long, where light art installations are on display. The route changes every year to allow different neighborhoods to shine. This popular festival started in 2006 with 45k visitors. The 2018 festival broke all records with more than 750k sightseers. (Eindhoven has a population of just over 200k.) The festival is ranked in the top 5 most-attended light festivals in the world.

de-AdvertJust as with GLOW, the Douwe Egberts team of artists, designers, and master blenders come together to create some of the world’s best coffees. We have a range of Douwe Egberts coffees, from pre-ground to ready-to-grind whole beans, and instant. Because our coffee is made for the European market, the flavor profiles are stronger than coffee produced for the American market.

Be sure to check out our current roast recommendations below.


For the two days, we will give you 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts with no minimum purchase required.*

Amsterdam: Iconic Architecture And Douwe Egberts

The Netherlands is the home of Douwe Egberts, the most popular coffee in the country. The country itself is iconic – think Dutch canal skating, wheels of cheese, wooden clogs, to name a few – so this week we’re highlighting special sights to see on a visit.
Canal-Row-Sunset
When thinking of Amsterdam, do images of large houses along a canal come to mind? While that is the iconic image, there are also homes not canal-side that reflect the history and architecture of this great city.

rembrandt-house-1Let’s start with the Rembrandt House. The actual building dates from 1606, a prominent house of the time; today the interior is restored and decorated just as it was when Rembrandt himself lived there for 20 years from 1640. The iconic artist painted the majority of his masterpieces while living there, and had a collection of rare objects (suits of Japanese armor and busts of Roman emperors, for instance) along with paintings, drawings and sketches from the Old Masters. His collections and his studio, where he taught students to paint like a master, have been recreated, so the home is now a museum.

One of those houses on a canal is the Anne Frank House. The house opened to the public in 1960 with the mission to encourage freedom, equal rights and democracy. Designated a world heritage site, one million people visit annually.

3d-print-houseOne more house that is must-see: The 3D Print Canal House, made entirely of plastic and foam, is a unique look at 3D printing (one printer was 6 meters’ tall, and is on display), and the process it takes to put it all together. While the construction is still on-going, each piece used is fabricated individually and tacked on to the house. You can also learn about the printing process on your visit.


Even if you can’t be in Amsterdam, you can still enjoy great Dutch coffee with Douwe Egberts from EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Get 15% off all Douwe Egberts coffee with no minimum order!

Have You Tried These Douwe Egberts Coffees Yet?

DE-Sale-Advert-December-2018-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.

We have Douwe Egberts Black, a dark, rich coffee in ground. As one of the brand’s most popular coffees, it’s a top-seller.

If you prefer a lighter coffee, try Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground. The Arabica blend is silky, smooth, with very subtle notes of fruit, and a mild flavor.

Not sure? Try Aroma Rood, the flagship product, a delicious medium roast, medium strength coffee. We have Aroma Rood in whole beans, ground and instant.

These coffees are made for the European market, so it’s just like a cup served at a canal-side café in Amsterdam! The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

Coffee vs Tea Study Looks At Drinker’s Personality

tea-vs-coffeeA new study of 2000 Americans gathered data to examine how a person’s choice of drink relates to her personality. For instance, you’d think that those of us who drink coffee in the morning would be the loud, extroverted group, but no. Turns out the tea drinkers are outgoing, and night owls, while the coffee drinkers are the creative, introverted types. A few other interesting findings:

• More than 75 percent drink their first cup of coffee or tea before 8AM.
• Tea lovers were more likely to enjoy “The Walking Dead” and “Friends” while coffee lovers prefer “The Office” and “Seinfeld.”
• Coffee drinkers prefer punk, rock, blues and jazz; tea drinkers choose classical, country, pop or hip-hop.
• Coffee types average 3.4 cups per day; tea types sip 2.7 cups.

The study was conducted on behalf of a company that makes disposable paper cups.


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

Germany: Fundamental In Coffee’s History

Germany, much like Italy, has played a pivotal role in the history of coffee in Europe. From the opening of coffeehouses as early as the 1670’s in Hamburg and Bremen, two key shipping ports that ultimately brought coffee into Germany and eastern Europe, Germany took its place as a European coffee leader. With the spread of coffeehouses over the next 50 years, women would be found frequenting the café, and even more shockingly, meeting and chatting with other women out in the open. This was not happening in other countries, making Germany ahead of its time!

JC-TC-BANNER

One of the country’s biggest contributions to the long history of coffee is the simple coffee filter. The 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. 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). Since making coffee in Turkish style was common, so were grounds in your cup. She strained the boiled coffee through the paper and an empire was born.

filter-closeShe 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.
