Happy Holidays! Or, as they say in Dutch…

Dordrecht-Christmas-Stall
In the Netherlands, the Christmas markets are open – one of the best is found in Dordrecht, a small town with a picturesque medieval section surrounding a 13th century Gothic church. The market is even more exclusive than you might think; the extravagant pop-up market lasts for only one special weekend. Just last week, Saint Nicholas sailed in from Spain, visited the homes of children, left presents in their shoes carefully set by the door, and sailed back to his home in Spain.

DE-Christmas-Decorations-300Family homes, shops and the big department stores are decorated with hanging lights, wreaths, wrapped boxes and decorated trees, and still more lights. Very popular decorations include displaying an Advent calendar and the Advent wreath, and a nativity scene. Special Dutch Christmas songs can be heard on the radio and in shops, including a perennial favorite about a boy looking for his lost rabbit, Flappie, who sadly turns out to be Christmas dinner. (The song was written by a Dutch comedian. Compare it to “Grandma got run over by a reindeer.”)

At Christmas, though, the food is a big star of the day – well, the 2 days (First Christmas and Second Christmas, the 25th and 26th, respectively). Some delicacies are only for the season: ginger nuts, egg-yolk liquor, mulled wine (Santa’s favorite drink), and chocolate or pastry letter shapes of your initials.

Dutch-foods-holiday

But the real secret to an authentic and traditional Dutch Christmas is family. The Dutch have deemed spending time with family as the most important part of Christmas, well before eating delicious food and attending church.

Great Tasting and Convenient!

Senseo-Advert-NL-Dec-2018Senseo pods, for use in the Senseo coffee machine, are always popular! These delicious coffee blends combine for a smooth taste, delicious aroma and a special drink any time of day. Senseo comes in Classic, Strong and Decaffeinated.

Dutch Cocoa: The Taste of Real Chocolate

Dutch-Cocoa-Droste-EDutch cocoa is made with a process developed by a Dutch chemist almost 200 years ago, which makes drinking hot chocolate very pleasant and tasty. It also tends to make the cocoa powder dark. Another type of Dutch-processed cocoa is black cocoa (think Oreo cookies). We have 2 brands of Dutch cocoa:

Van Houten cocoa in an 8.8oz tin

Droste cocoa in an 8.8oz box

Both are entirely cocoa powder with no additives, and both make rich hot chocolate and can be used in baking.

As a special deal this week, the discount is available on our Dutch cocoa.

Iconic Cookie Made Into Liquor

Stroopwafel-liquerOh no they didn’t! The stroopwafel, a caramel syrup cookie, is a Dutch snack that has been around since the 1850’s. Now a Dutch company has recreated the sweet taste with a splash of alcohol that reviews say really taste like the cookie. With an alcohol content of 14.7 percent, this drink is not for the children, but it will literally warm your heart!

Douwe Egberts In The Spotlight

DE-Gezellig-Holiday-Table

Many countries and languages have words that are difficult to translate. In the Netherlands, home to Douwe Egberts, the Dutch cherish something that is “gezellig.” The word is not easily translated because there is no comparable term in English, and because it means different things depending on what you are doing. It can mean cozy, quaint, fun, and can apply to anything (person, place or event) that includes feelings of belonging, love, and contentment. In fact, it’s the element of belonging that is key here. It’s time spent with friends and family, eating and drinking and enjoying being together. With the holidays approaching, what better time of year to find your own gezellig moments.


We want you to enjoy Douwe Egberts coffee by cozying up to our deal this week: Get 15% off all Douwe Egberts and Senseo products at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, no minimum order required.*

Douwe Egbert Coffees We’re Loving Right Now…

Our range of Douwe Egberts products include a variety of roasts available in ground, whole bean, instant, and our popular value packs.

DE-Sale-Advert-November-2018-NL

Have you tried Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee yet? It’s on the darker roast side, 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. Try it, you’ll surprise yourself.

Another standard around here is Douwe Egberts Black. We have this dark, rich coffee in ground. One of the brand’s most popular coffees, it had been discontinued a few years back, but since being available again, it’s proven to be 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.

With the holidays coming, grab a Douwe Egberts Premium Coffee Variety package with four of their top sellers, including the three above (plus Excellent Aroma). The four-pack of 8.8oz./250g coffees is great for sharing or giving as a holiday gift, and with the discount above, you are really saving big!

The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

A Douwe Egberts Coffee For Every Cup

Ever feel the urge to splash out on a collection of delicious drinks? Give into the temptation! At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have an extensive collection of Douwe Egberts coffees. Even better, this week we have a great deal at 15% off all our Douwe Egberts stock, so you can splash out economically! More on that below, but first, let’s talk about a unique display happening in the Netherlands.

Whiskey-Collection

The Dutch are connoisseurs of good drinks of all kinds. In fact, recently, a group of Dutch investors bought the world’s largest collection of rare whiskies, with some of the collection from as far back as 1843. The twelve collectors invested the equivalent of $11.5 million a few years ago, then had special reinforced glass cabinets built to display the 3100 bottles. One key condition of the sale was that the collection be displayed in a museum. Currently the whiskies can be seen, but not touched, in Sassenheim, in the western Netherlands.


Douwe Egberts is made in the Netherlands, and is the most popular coffee in the country, and in other parts of Europe too. EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a range of Douwe Egberts. Our Douwe Egberts coffees, like all our coffees, are made in Europe for the European market. We’ll give you 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts’ products on our site, with no minimum purchase required.*

Did You Know…?

de-instant-coffees-advert-nlEuromonitor, an international market research company, found that nearly half of all coffee consumed worldwide is instant. We found that a new wave of instant coffee options has been making their way onto the consumer market. The companies involved describe their coffee as premium instant coffee, one selling four single-serve packets for $13. Well, we say those companies are behind the curve! Douwe Egberts has been making instant coffees that taste and smell like brewed coffee, but ready in an instant, and at a much better price than $3+ per cup. We offer the following instant roasts:

Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood instant is the flagship roast. We have Aroma Rood instant in 7oz/200mg jars, resealable and reusable, with a seal that preserves the smooth and rich flavors and aroma notes.

Douwe Egberts Pure Gold instant, also in the resealable jar, is a medium, balanced roast, and is the standard for all instant coffees. We also have Pure Gold instant in 10- and 20-stick sample packs, making it easy to give it a try, and please use the discount above.

Douwe Egberts Pure Indulgence instant is dark and rich, with a velvety body. And, yes, it comes in a resealable jar.

Last, but certainly not least, is Douwe Egberts Moccona Classic Decaf instant. A blend of Robusta and Arabica beans, the coffee is full, well-rounded and smooth tasting. The rich aroma will make you forget there is no caffeine! This roast is available in a smaller, resealable jar.

Ban on Phones While Biking Proposed

phone-ban-nlBikes account for more than 25 percent of personal transport in the Netherlands. At the end of last month, a minister in the government drafted legislation to ban the use of phones and other mobile electronic devices on bicycles. It is already illegal to use a phone while driving a motor vehicle, but bikes were deliberately excluded from that law, despite the widespread use of bikes, because bikes are slower, and authorities thought it would be difficult to enforce such a ban. One study in The Hague found that 20 percent of bicyclists were using a phone, while more recently, the transport ministry found that devices played a role in 20 percent of biking accidents with riders under 25 years of age.

It All Starts With Coffee, Bread And Butter

What do we mean? Breakfast in the Netherlands of course!

The home of Douwe Egberts is also home to a plateful of very specific breakfast items. They include chocolate sprinkles and flakes, peanut butter, and spice-filled cake.

DE-Hagelslag-and-Coffee

Let’s start with the sprinkles, where it’s socially-acceptable for an adult to eat said sprinkles for breakfast. Take a plain (or toasted) slice of bread, spread with butter, then spread a thin layer of the sprinkles on the butter. Chocolate is the most popular flavor of ‘hagelslag’ (literally hailstorm), but there are many flavor options, including white chocolate, fruit flavors, anise (another popular flavor), and they’re available in different colors. The sprinkles are only lightly sweetened, so not too overly-sugary, as you might imagine. The Dutch might also eat these at lunch, where sandwiches rule.

Add a layer of ‘pindakaas’ (peanut cheese) on top of the butter, and no one will complain about getting chocolate in their peanut butter. In fact, sliced, buttered bread can be topped with cheese, cold meats, jam, honey, strawberries, among others. The ‘ontbijtkoek’ (breakfast cake) is similar to gingerbread, made with rye flour, and spices including cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. And, yes, you would eat it sliced with butter, and use a knife and fork.


Add a cup of fresh Douwe Egberts coffee to this breakfast and you have an authentic, traditional Dutch breakfast. Coffee, bread and butter. What more could you want? Oh! How about a discount on all Douwe Egbert products? Done: Take 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum required.*

Please Use Coupon Code: IHEARTDE

*Discount valid from 9/16/18 through 11:59PM ET on 9/18/18 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required for Douwe Egberts and Senseo products. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.
Questions? Call 800.582.6617 Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM ET.

We have two of Douwe Egberts most popular blends, Aroma Rood and Black, both in 8.8oz ground coffee, and the premium ground coffee variety package, all at a great price and eligible for the discount above!


Decaf Lovers, Rejoice!

DE-Moccana-Decaf-AR-Decafe-NL-150pxAs for that late-night snack, and yes, bread with sprinkles is a good snack or treat too, we have just what you need. Both Moccona Decaf, in instant, and Aroma Rood Decaf, in
ground, are back in stock.

Moccona Classic Decaf is a combination of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, which make for a balanced aroma and smooth taste and comes in a reusable jar. Aroma Rood Decafe ground coffee also combines Arabica and Robusta beans, so the blend is flavorful and aromatic. Drink Douwe Egberts as late as you like.


Europe In The News

Breakfast Is Best, And Here’s Why

breakfast-face-2A new campaign championed by all EU Member States is working to spread the news about the importance of breakfast in a healthy life. Studies have shown that children and adolescents across Europe don’t eat breakfast at all. For instance, in the Netherlands, around 90 percent of 11 year old children eat breakfast, but in Greece and Slovenia, only about 51 percent do. By the age of 15, that percentage drops to 65 percent in the Netherlands, to 40 percent in Greece and Slovenia.

The campaign is encouraging breakfast for all. Missing breakfast has been connected to behaviors that compromise healthy living, including increased use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs, and to more sedentary lifestyles. As the president of the European Medical Association stated, a daily breakfast “is an important step in taking control of your diet and your life.”

Douwe Egberts: Best Coffee In The Netherlands

We enjoy writing about the Netherlands not only because it’s home to Douwe Egberts, but also because it’s a beautiful country with fun traditions. If you are traveling there, try these suggestions for activities to see and do while you’re there.

DE-Bikes-Banner-NB

First, ride a bike. Anytime you are trying to go anywhere. There will be plenty of other bikers on the road, even between towns. Streets in the Netherlands are narrow and filled with parked cars, sometimes trams, walkers and a lot of bicycles. Because of the network of well-maintained bike paths, it is safe, convenient, and visitors are encouraged to take advantage of local transport to get around.

gezellig-2-nbNext, stretch out in the grass at the park, or enjoy a very long lunch with friends, and feel gezellig. This Dutch word (pronounced ‘khuh ZEL ick’) is a term that’s difficult to translate into English, but the word has a general meaning of coziness and friendliness. This feeling of enjoyment is highly valued in the Dutch culture.

The Dutch have some of the lightest and tastiest pastries in Europe: appeltaart, soesjes (tiny cream puffs), and stroopwafels (a syrup cookie made only better by being warmed over your freshly poured cup of coffee).

Dutch-Treats-NL

And, finally, the coffee! Dutch coffee (just like Dutch cheese) is considered the best in the world. Douwe Egberts is the best-selling coffee in the country, and remains popular around the world.

Don’t Read This Over Your Eggs Benedict

Dutch-people-healthyAccording to European Commission figures, the Dutch exercise more than any other group in Europe, by almost double. Eighty percent cycle, walk, swim, dance and/or garden on a regular basis. The European average is a mere 44%. With the strong and supportive cycling infrastructure, it’s easy for people to cycle to work, or to ride to the tram. The data also showed that the Dutch expressed a preference to perform regularly in sporting activities for pleasure, rather than health. An online and weekend-printed newspaper in the Netherlands crunched the numbers. And, if you’re wondering, yes, they ride bikes in the snow.

Jacobs Douwe Egberts Supports Climate Smart Agriculture

Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee In The News

In the Vietnamese Central Highlands (also known as the “Kingdom of Coffee”), the climate is perfect for coffee plants. Because of the ideal combination of rain and sun on the rich soil of these mountains, most of the country’s coffee crop is grown there, and it’s the reason Vietnam is the world’s second largest coffee exporter.

DE-Kingdom-of-Coffee-NL
DE-Sustainability-Project-crA new project to train coffee farmers in sustainable practices was just announced this month. Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) has partnered with a leading business firm based in the Netherlands that has enterprises in the agriculture, food processing, shipping, and finance industries. The three-year plan is to train Vietnamese coffee farmers in climate change resilience techniques, fertilizing, and work safety. Another agricultural solutions leader is on board too, helping the farmers meet growing product demand, especially in sourcing traceability and safety. The $1 million (USD) project will help 3000 farmers in the Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Gia Lai provinces of Vietnam. Because JDE “recognizes the various environmental and social issues that go with coffee cultivation,” it’s a great match for the farmers.

Starting with 30 demonstration plots about 1-2 hectares each, various approaches to soil and fertilizer management, crop protection products, and irrigation will be tested. The most successful techniques will be then used across 300 hectares of coffee farms. This project is similar to another initiative we shared with you in 2016, where another 3000 farmers in the Central Highlands region were similarly trained.

Housing Complex Is World’s First

netherlands-3d-printed-homes-crNext year, the city of Eindhoven, Netherlands, will unveil the first ever 3-D-printed home. The first is expected to have three bedrooms, printed in concrete by a robotic arm. An advantage to printing the pod-like homes is the customizable components, even for natural objects found on the home’s plot. In addition, the process of building is shortened from months to weeks, and the robots will replace the need for craftsmen such as masons and carpenters. Monthly rental is set to be between $1000 and $1400 USD. As the technology improves and becomes more popular, experts predict the prices will come down to make the housing more affordable in the future.

Clever Jar Hack Puts Douwe Egberts In News

Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee In The News

A woman in Australia posted a quick coffee-drinking “hack” (think: shortcut) on a Facebook group for new moms. She showed a Douwe Egberts jar of Pure Gold Instant coffee with sugar filled in the removable lid. That way she had her coffee and her sugar conveniently in one place – spoon one of each into a mug, then add hot water. She demonstrated in pictures how to remove the top, then take the plastic cover off of the lid. Fill the glass lid with sugar, pop the plastic cover back on, and put the lid on the jar. As the Dutch say: Alstublieft! (There you have it!)

DE-Instant-Jar-Sugar-Hack-B

After posting the hack, the group was inspired! Other members posted their own ideas for the jars. They included:

–Hummus in the lid, with cut-up vegetables in the jar

–Yogurt in the lid, with chopped up fruit in the jar

–Use the lid alone for raisins or other small bites

The post also noted that the lid seals tight, so there’s no spillage with any ingredients.

We found some other great ideas for repurposing the jars too, and would love to hear your ideas too. (Tell us about your best one on our Facebook page!)

DE-Instant-Jar-Reuse-Ideas-NL


We have Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee in the same type of jars available at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, along with an entire range of Douwe Egberts coffee in ground and whole bean too.
