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-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.


Douwe Egberts produces delicious and sustainably-grown coffee. This week, we are offering all our Douwe Egberts and Senseo coffees at 15% with no minimum order.*

The Netherlands In The News

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.

A Pour-Over by Poursteady

poursteadyA pour-over is a single cup of coffee made by putting ground coffee in a filter over an empty cup, then pouring very hot water over the grounds. It is a common drink prepared at cafes around America. In New Orleans, there is a coffee shop where the barista, named Poursteady, works diligently making pour-overs all day – and he could do it all night if they were open. That’s because Poursteady is a robot, actually a sophisticated coffee machine that is precise, reliable and speedy. Sure, he’s fast, but do we have to tip him?

The Brands of J.J. Darboven

On a map of western Europe, you’ll notice Germany and Switzerland nestled together. It turns out that these countries not only share a short border, and a language, but also an appreciation of good coffee, from bean blending, roasting, packaging to drinking.
jj-darboven-brands-map-650px-325px

While these two neighbors differ wildly in size and population, they both are homes to makers of fine coffee, including the 3 brands we are highlighting this week. Plus, we have a great deal on these brands: Eilles Kaffee, IDEE Kaffee, and Movenpick. These iconic brands are part of another coffee leader, J.J. Darboven, which sources premium green coffee from only the best growing regions in the world. The business is built on quality and stability, so you know you’ll be buying the best coffee available.

JJ-Darboven-Coffees-Advert-NL-July2018

Eilles Kaffee and IDEE Kaffee are both based in Germany. For more than 130 years in Germany, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand, even with Bavarian royalty. Try 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 and aromatic Gold Express instant coffee.

Movenpick, our Swiss offering, gently roasts the coffee beans using a traditional Swiss recipe. We have Movenpick Der Himmlische coffee in ground, whole beans, and instant, which is a flavorful roast from high-altitude beans.

We also have Movenpick Nespresso-compatible capsules, from Ristretto, to Intenso, to Lungo Crema and Lungo Classico. Use the discount below to really save on these capsules.

The Best Coffee To Order…

In Germany, filtered coffee is by far the most popular drink. Almost three-fourths of the population drinks coffee every day. Two-thirds of Germans drink 2-5 cups of coffee per day.

In Switzerland, the rule is espresso, with milk or whipped crème. Similar to their German counterparts, the average Swiss drinks 2-5 cups of coffee per day.

ISS Re-Supply Includes Strong Coffee

Late last week, SpaceX was scheduled to launch a rocket to the ISS with almost 6,000 pounds of supplies. Part of that payload is 60 pouches of Death Wish coffee, a specially-made instant version. The pouch has a nozzle that is used to add 8 ounces of hot water. The astronauts add an elongated straw to drink the prepared brew. The coffee maker claims the coffee has twice the caffeine of a regular cup of coffee. We wondered if this is a death wish for the ISSpresso.

Vacuum Maker Designs Futuristic Coffee Maker

dyson-concept-coffeemakerIt’s only a conceptual design, but the Dyson Coffee Maker has a motor that brews coffee in a powerful way, and it looks pretty cool too. Part of the design includes a window that allows everyone to see the internal components at work, which are similar to the visible ones on the brand’s ball-type vacuum. It’s compact, with a tubular design, so it fits in small places.

The Brands of Tchibo In The Spotlight

Coffee Anyone?

You’ve just finished a late meal with good friends and family when coffee is brought to the table. Are you the person who is first to get a cup? Or maybe you’re the person who wouldn’t think of drinking even a sip of coffee in the evening for fear of being awake all night? Do you know someone who can drink a cup of coffee and then go to bed and sleep like a baby?

EBC-Coffees-Caffeine-Sensitivity

Well, it turns out that we each have our own sensitivity to caffeine, according to a new report published this month by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee. The report used existing research to study the way caffeine is metabolized, that is processed, by the body. Per the author, an individual’s response to caffeine is likely driven by 2 genetic factors: the speed of the liver metabolizing caffeine, and a genetic variant that makes the nervous system more sensitive to caffeine. The author, a physician, categorized three levels of caffeine sensitivity: High, Regular and Low. For those with livers that metabolize caffeine more slowly, and when caffeine binds strongly in the nervous system, even a small amount of caffeine can cause sleep problems; these people have high sensitivity. Low sensitivity to caffeine means you metabolize caffeine quickly, and you can probably drink coffee close to bedtime. For those with regular sensitivity to caffeine, you can drink 2-5 cups of coffee during the day without any issues then or at night. Some of that group may even be able to drink coffee in the evening.

coffee-DNA-cropSo how we react to coffee is part of our genetic make-up, just like the color of our hair and eyes. A few other factors affect how you metabolize caffeine, which we listed below.

Factors Affecting Caffeine Metabolism

From the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, there are various factors which influence how the body handles caffeine. Besides genetics, some liver diseases, some prescription medicines, dietary factors, alcohol and smoking affect the speed at which you metabolize caffeine.

Army Proposes Safe Caffeine Doses

Caffeine-molecule-armyA study from the Army Medical Research and Material Command in Maryland has developed an algorithm to determine when and how much caffeine an individual should consume. The research claims that the tool can help improve alertness by up to 64 percent while still consuming the same total amount of caffeine. Alertness was defined as reaction time. Researchers used sleep/wake times along with the person’s maximum allowed caffeine to produce the optimum caffeine dose schedule.
