Are you feeling inspired in this new year? Are you motivated to try something new? The new year is a great time to break an old habit or to step outside the daily grind for a refreshing perspective on our day-to-day life. Some ideas:
Start or join a book club
Volunteer somewhere in your local area
Hike a trail in a nearby park
Learn a new language
A new or special event deserves to begin and end with coffee. (Oh, heck – everything starts and ends with coffee! But we digress…)
We suggest you try one, two or all 5 of the German brands on special this week. You’ll find your first sip transports you to a good place. Your last sip will too…and all the ones in between.

Sip, Savor and Create Delightful Moments With…
Jacobs: “The Aroma is Wonderful”
Jacobs flagship coffee is Kronung, [“coronation” in German], and is widely known for its aromatic qualities, mellow flavor and reasonable price. We have several options including Mild, Balanced, and Decaf, some in ground and whole beans.
Try Jacobs Espresso whole beans, a dark roast that produces a traditional espresso. We have Crema and Crema Intenso in whole beans also.
Jacobs makes several instant coffees too, from Kronung Instant, Cronat Gold, and Velvet Instant. Trust us – European instant coffee is an art, and is extremely popular around the world. Give European instant a try – it’s a new world of flavor!
Tchibo: “A New Experience”
If you prefer a coffee with a stronger flavor, try Beste Bohne, literally translated as “Best Bean.” The blend of fine 100% Arabica beans has a sweetness with good body, making it perfect to drink any time. We have Tchibo Beste Bohne in ground and whole bean. For those who don’t already know, the aroma alone makes it worth trying.
Tchibo Feine Milde Ground coffee is a naturally mild coffee made from Arabica beans grown in different geographical areas. The perfect blend makes the coffee mild and soft with a delicious flavor. The blend of Arabica and Robusta beans in Tchibo Exclusive is perfect for espresso, French Press, and stovetop moka makers. We have it in ground, so it works for most coffee preparation methods.
We also have Tchibo Espresso Milano Style and Sicilia Style, both in whole beans, and perfect for espresso and as a base for other coffee drinks. Sicilia Style, made from 80% Arabica beans/20% Robusta beans, has flavorful dark notes in a full-bodied coffee topped with a velvety crema. Milano Style is made from 100% Arabica beans, roasted so their natural richness highlights the fruit and dark chocolate notes, and makes a perfect Milanese espresso.
Dallmayr: “The Perfect Taste”
If you enjoy a smooth coffee, then you must have tried Dallmayr Prodomo, their most popular product. The coffee is smooth from the first sip to the finish, and we have whole beans, ground, plus a decaf roast and a mild roast, both in ground.
Dallmayr Gold instant coffee is an intensly aromatic medium roast, blended to please the most discerning palate.
For a truly velvety coffee, Dallmayr Crema D’Oro is balanced, smooth, with spicy aroma notes. The 100% Arabica beans are gently roasted, making a delicious espresso, or to be used as a base for lattes and cappuccinos. Dallmayr Espresso D’Oro is strong, spicy and great for straight espresso or any espresso drink. We have these in whole beans.
Eduscho: “Creates Comfort and Coziness”
For almost 100 years, Eduscho has sold coffee, and for many decades early on, that was the Eduscho advertising slogan. Gala Number 1 (Nr. 1) is their flagship product. We have Gala Nr. 1 Klassisch in ground for a true European coffee experience.

Germany is home to the brands we’re spotlighting this week, so here’s a little more about this historic and important country.
Let’s start in Germany’s capital, Berlin, considered to be the best city to live in for its culture, according to a survey conducted by a bank whose customers live abroad. This expat banking service, for people living outside their native countries, asks participants to rate top locations, quality of life topics, work opportunities and standards, cultural offerings and more. The survey found 70 percent of expats living in Berlin found its cultural side to be “vibrant” and 55 percent found the city diverse and “welcoming.”
Another welcoming aspect of Germany is the traditional food of the country. Despite the name, Boiled Meatballs are a favorite and filling comfort food. Veal (or other ground meat) is mixed with onions, eggs, anchovies, and spices, made into small meatballs which are cooked and served with a creamy, lemony white sauce dotted with capers.
Another national dish is Sauerbraten. The pot roast dish (literally “sour roast”) is labor-intensive to prepare, so it is often for special occasions. While there are regional variations, basically beef or venison is marinated in a red wine vinegar spice mixture for several days, then cooked slowly in a covered pot at a low heat. Serve the thinly sliced meat with a dark beetroot and sugar gravy, rye bread, red cabbage, and potato dumplings. Finally, we have to mention the most popular food in Germany: Potato pancakes, a comfort food and street food staple, are usually served with apple sauce on black pumpernickel rye break, sometimes with a drizzle of sweet syrup.
Our last highlight of the day is a mention of Kaffee & Kuchen. This long-standing German tradition calls for sitting down in the afternoon with a piece of good cake, and a cup of coffee! Everyone participates in the ritual, from the young to the old, and cafes fill up with people gossiping away the time while enjoying good German coffee.
You supply the cake, we’ve got the coffee! Choose from these premium German brands:

Find Love At First Sip With These Brands
Jacobs flagship coffee is Kronung, [“coronation” in German], and is well-known for its aromatic qualities, mellow flavor and reasonable price. We have several options including Mild and Balanced. We currently have Jacobs Cappuccino instant, which tends to sell quickly, and which makes a fine, velvety cappuccino. We have 3 other instant coffee roasts from Jacobs, and because this is instant made for the European market, the flavor is strong and full.
Tchibo Feine Milde Ground coffee is a naturally mild coffee made from Arabica beans grown in different geographical areas. The perfect blend makes the coffee mild and soft with a delicious flavor. If you prefer a coffee with a stronger flavor, try Beste Bohne. It has a sweetness with good body making it perfect to drink every time. We also have Tchibo Espresso Milano Style and Sicilia Style, both in whole beans and both with a velvety crema.
If you are looking for a smooth coffee, then you must try Dallmayr Prodomo, their most popular product. The coffee is smooth from the first sip to the finish, and we have whole beans, ground, plus a decaf roast and a mild roast, both in ground. Velvety Dallmayr Crema D’Oro is balanced, smooth, with spicy aroma notes. Dallmayr also has capsules for the Nespresso machine. We have a range of 8 roasts in our Capsa line. On the lighter end, we have Lungo Ethiopia (medium); Decaffeinato (medium/dark), Prodomo, and Lungo Belluno (soft and balanced). Artigiano is complex with fruit and nut notes, Barista (dark with cocoa tones), Lungo Azzuro (strong) and Ristretto (intense) are the dark roast options. All of these capsules are available, along with our entire Dallmayr line, for the discount offered above. If you have a Nespresso machine, do not miss this deal!
Mount Hagen instant coffee is made from 100 percent organically-grown Arabica beans, certified under USDA standards. The taste is unique and fresh.
Even the freeze-drying process is additive-free. We have Mount Hagen instant in jars of regular and decaf and in single serve sticks, all with the rich aroma and taste of fair-trade and organic beans. Mount Hagen instant coffee consistently is rated high on the taste scale for instant coffee.
Eduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 50’s, and within a few years, introduced Gala coffee. Because it was sold in bakeries – kaffee and kuchen – its popularity took off. In 1980, Gala coffee was renamed to Gala Number 1 (Nr. 1) Klassisch to reflect its status in the market, along with its top flavor and quality. Try Gala Mild, with its mild taste and gentle aroma, or the stronger Gala Nr 1 Klassisch.
One Last Note About Coffee in Germany
We read about a café in Hamburg, situated on the scenic Mühlenkamp canal, that serves coffee and cake (and other food) to its patrons who paddle up, ring a bell, order, then are served in their boat. A picture on the café’s site shows several canoes gathered around an open window which displays the menu of the day, but the site really focuses on their cakes. They claim their cakes are incomparable. One of their cakes with crunchy butter crumbles apparently has a devoted following, and all their cakes are served with fresh cream and really good espresso. Whether rhubarb, plum, apple or gooseberry cake, or the famous “Bee sting” cake (with almonds and custard), all are baked fresh daily using local ingredients.
As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!
