Beat The Heat With a Unique Coffee Treat!

Writer Jane Austen wrote to her sister in late summer 1796:

Jane-Austin-Hot-Weather

While it is hot in some parts of the USA, Europe has been experiencing record-setting heat for two months now. In June, a city in France endured an all-time high of 115⁰F, while several other countries, including Austria, Luxembourg, and Germany, logged new high temperatures too, making June the hottest on record. July was much of the same – forest fires, buckled train tracks, air quality warnings, and drought-like conditions. Late in July, several countries issued “red alerts” as the temperatures increased. Britain logged 101⁰F in Cambridge; the Netherlands had 104⁰F in the south, breaking a record more than 50 years standing. Germany hit a record with 106⁰F in the western region of the country. Many homes and businesses do not have air conditioning, and with water-usage restrictions and dry fields, it seems most Europeans are just trying to stay cool.

iced-coffee-short-blue-and-white-strawsWhile there is not much that can be done about the temperatures, there are plenty of things that someone can do to beat the heat – including our favorite, iced coffee! Summer is perfect for this treat. We have a recipe with some suggestions on the newest trends in iced coffee below, but in the meantime, we are offering a sweet deal on our coffee and products.

Hit Me With Your Best Espresso Shot

iced-espressoEspresso is a great way to start when making an iced coffee. We offer some of the best European espresso, ground and in whole beans. We have many great Italian brands: Lavazza, Sant Eustachio, Caffe Vergnano, illy, Segafredo, Kimbo, to name a few; we also have delicious German brands such as Caffe Hausbrandt, Dallmayr, and Tchibo. All of these brands are known for strong, flavorful, classic espresso, and all of them would make a hot or cold drink that satisfies.

We also have a wide range of capsules for the Nespresso machine, and four roasts for the Segafredo Espresso machine.

You can always use instant coffee for iced coffee too – that makes it super-convenient and quick! We offer instant coffee, extremely popular in Europe, from several brands, including Davidoff, Nescafe, Tchibo, Jacobs, and Douwe Egberts, and in several roasts, with something for absolutely everyone. You can search coffee on our site by brand or by type.

Coffee Trends This Summer

Summer is the season of iced coffee, and this season’s big trend, again, is cold-brew coffee. Those who love it say cold-brew is particularly smooth because the cold water slowly extracts the coffee from the beans. (Cold-brew is easy to make, and of course you
can use any of our coffees. See below.)

iced-coffee-summer-trendsBut this summer, look for unique styles of the brew, new and surprising flavors, and techniques that kick-up your coffee drink a notch. Here are a few:

–Floral flavors such as rose, violet, and elderflower
–Summer herbs, added to simple syrup, such as mint, basil, and rosemary
–Using different varieties and blends of coffees
–Infusing the cold-brew with surprising flavors such as juniper and agave; cocoa; pepper; vanilla bean, and vodka

How To Make Cold-Brew Coffee

cold-brew1. Use high-quality beans (we have plenty from which to choose). Grind the beans semi-coarse.

2. Stir ¾ cup grounds with 4 cups of water, and put in the fridge for 6-18 hours to make a concentrate.

3. Strain in a sieve lined with a coffee filter. For concentrate, use one-part concentrate with two-parts water to start. You can adjust the proportions of water and grounds depending on how you prefer your coffee. Enjoy!

Our Nordic Coffee is Delicious, and Here’s Why.

Drink Coffee. Be Happy.

EBC-Scandi-Banner-062319-CR
Once again, the Nordic countries are five of the top 10 happiest countries in the world. That is according to the World Happiness Report, which ranked 156 countries for 2019 by how happy their citizens self-identified their feelings. The report looks at factors such as life expectancy, trust, generosity, and freedom.

Finland was at the top of the list, followed by Norway, Denmark, and Iceland. Sweden came in at number seven, the entire group scoring high marks in all the categories.

At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we offer 3 brands of fresh, enjoyable coffee from the Nordic area of the world. We have: Löfbergs, and Arvid Nordquist, both from Sweden, and Paulig, from Finland. We think that happy workers are going to roast good coffee, and that makes us happy!

You will find all our Nordic Brands under Coffee By Type.

Arvid-Advert-3Blends-NLArvid Nordquist opened a small shop in Stockholm, Sweden in 1884. Today Arvid Nordquist is a leader in premium coffee, food and wine products. We offer three roasts: Classic Gran Dia, , Extra Dark roast, and Medium roast, all exceptional examples of Swedish coffee roasting. In addition, all three are UTZ Certified and CO2 Compensated (you can read more about these organizations on the product page). Classic Gran Dia is a medium to dark roast, full-bodied, with nut and floral notes, with a nice finish. Extra Dark is full-bodied, and intense, with just the right amount of bitterness. Medium roast is balanced, with chocolate and spice notes.

Lofbergs-Swedish-Fika-3Roast-Advert-NLLofbergs, one of the largest coffee roasters in the Nordic countries, is based in Sweden. We offer three exemplary roasts made from 100% Arabica beans: Swedish Fika Medium Roast ground coffee, Swedish Fika Dark Roast ground coffee, and Swedish Fika Organic Medium Roast. Dark Roast creates a coffee that is rich and full (roast level 4 of 5). Medium Roast is a light roast (2 of 5) with a rich taste and aroma. We have Organic Medium Roast, gently roasted (2 of 5), with a sweet and mild flavor. All three roasts consist of a minimum of thirty percent coffee coming from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Farms.

Paulig-Advert-wHeinoarominen-2018-NLPaulig, from Finland, roasts and packages their coffee out of their facilities in Helsinki. We offer two roasts. Juhla Mokka Ground Coffee is light-roasted, rich, balanced and intense blend of beans from South America and Africa. Presidentti Ground Coffee is a light roast (1 of 5) from a blend of beans grown in Africa and delivers a strong and rich coffee. These coffees are tasty examples of Finnish coffee.

Try any of these to experience the best in regional coffee. We get it directly from Europe, so you are getting coffee made for the European market. Maybe you will find the secret to (coffee) happiness in one of these brands!


Nordic Life In The News

It’s A Furniture Store. It’s A Chain Restaurant. It’s Both.

ikeaYou may already know that IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer. There are stores in 38 countries around the world. It turns out that IKEA is also one of the largest international restaurant chains. Of course, they all offer their signature Swedish meatballs, but from there, menus vary by country. Choices on the menu are influenced by the location of the restaurant. For instance, a shop in France offers macarons; a restaurant in Winnepeg offers poutine (French fries with gravy and cheese, a national staple); in India, enjoy curry and biryani.
