As they say in the Netherlands, ‘Vrolijk Kerstfeest’

Cheerful Christmas!

dutch-ornaments-christmas-tree-600px

dutch-horns-at-christmas-300pxIt’s that time of year, just as in other parts of Europe and beyond, when adults and children alike focus on and celebrate the Christmas holiday. There might be a Christmas hamper (box or package) from your employer, time to decorate the tree (only after St. Nicolas Day), a 4’ horn to sound at dawn, and most importantly, time spent with the people you love.

In fact, researchers found that in the Netherlands, spending time with family was identified as the most important part of the Christmas season.

Advocaat-Dutch-Eggnog-250px-eThe big day itself is actually two days in the Netherlands. The Dutch celebrate First (25th) and Second (26th) Christmas Days as time spent with family, and indulging in the holiday feast. Traditional holiday favorites include oliebollen (heavy donut), Christmas fruit bread, roasted venison or goose with plenty of vegetables, and the Dutch version of eggnog, Advocaat, actually a creamy brandy custard, often eaten with a spoon.


The Dutch find this time of year special, just as we do. 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 order of Douwe Egberts products on www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

We Have Douwe Egberts For Everyone

DE-December-NL

Our Douwe Egberts range includes ground coffee, whole bean, instant, and some fun coffee gift sets. Grinding the beans just before brewing produces the best-tasting coffee. Our whole bean selection includes Douwe Egberts Excellent Aroma, a perfect medium roast, with a smooth and full-bodied taste and a strong finish. For something a little darker, try Mocca Aroma, full-bodied, with spice and chocolate notes. If you are looking for a daily drinker, we have Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood, a medium, smooth, and aromatic blend of Robusta and Arabica beans. We have these great roasts in ground too.

Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground is a lighter roast, silky-smooth and fruity. 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 just like to grab coffee and go, we have 5 roasts of instant coffee. Get Aroma Rood, Pure Gold, Pure Indulgence, Pure Decaf, 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 two package sizes.

Check out our selection of cups and our prepacked variety packages. These make great gifts too.

Other Dutch Traditions

Christmas Markets are popular in many European cities. Amsterdam has large markets, usually with stalls in wooden cabins, selling food, clothing and gifts. You will also find a Gebakkraam, a food truck with specialties such as appelflappen and oliebollen. One of the most popular markets is the Market at Museumplein, also known as Christmas Village on Ice, where the market stands next to a large public ice rink. Add in some live music and entertainment, and you will have a true Dutch Christmas Market experience.</p>
<hr />
<h3>One More Very Dutch Part of the Holiday</h3>
<p><img class=Gezelligheid is the most important part of the Christmas Season. This Dutch word is difficult to translate, but in general, it refers to the feeling of being with your loved ones, and/or reuniting with someone after a long separation, and/or a general sense of togetherness (think warm and fuzzy feelings).

Lastly, New Year’s Eve (Oud en Nieuw) in the Netherlands, people congregate in the central squares of the cities. Around 11PM, rounds of fireworks begin to welcome the coming year. At the stroke of midnight, more fireworks, more celebrations and more fun!

Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt. Warren G. Harding. Famke Janssen.

You won’t believe what these people have in common!

Dutch-American-Heritage-Clogs-Blue-300But first, let’s talk about Dutch-American Heritage Day, which is November 16, 2017. It was in 1991 when the U.S. Congress officially voted to make November 16th as Dutch-American Heritage Day. President George H.W. Bush decreed the day be a way to celebrate the 200 years of friendship between the U.S. and the Netherlands. Did you know that the Netherlands was one of the first countries to recognize the U.S. as an independent country? Events are held in cities across America: Holland, Michigan; Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; Seattle, Washington, among many others.

famke-janssen-cr-250This year, a gala is being held in Los Angeles on the 16th to honor Famke Janssen, a Dutch actress, director, and former fashion model. Born in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, Janssen moved to New York city to attend Columbia University. She has worked for organizations that raise animal rights awareness, set international drugs and crime policies, and most recently to raise awareness about animal poaching. Proceeds from the gala will help fund education and research for cancer and for Dutch studies at two California universities.

Coffee In The News

Coffee With Bling

Glitter-Gold-Latte-200Golden glitter lattes are the next bling thing. A café in the West Midlands, UK, debuted golden glitter lattes. The non-toxic glitter is able to be used in food and drink, and apparently leaves you with a shiny lip gloss too. A café in Mumbai, India, is doing the same thing, with their “Diamond and Gold Cappuccino.”

9 Ways Lavazza Is Great To Drink

At Enjoy Better Coffee, we love all European coffee, but there is something special about Italian coffee. Maybe it is the rich flavor of espresso, or maybe drinking a cup takes you to away to people-watch at one of the many piazze, or quite possibly, it is having all of that in the comfort of your own home!

We love Lavazza coffee, and we know you will too. Read on, and you will want to buy Lavazza, and save at the same time!

Why buy Lavazza? Let us count the ways.

1. Lavazza is ranked #1 in the Italian retail coffee market. It’s known as “Italy’s Favorite Coffee.”

2. The fourth generation of the Lavazza family is still involved in the family coffee business.

3. Lavazza is the official coffee of professional tennis’s Grand Slams, the 4 major annual competitions. Five and a half million tennis fans can’t be wrong.

6. Lavazza worked with NASA on building and sending an espresso machine to the International Space Station. The machine is called the ISSpresso.

Sour Coffee Ale Combines Two Delicious Worlds

The company behind Fat Tire Belgian Ale has released a special brew named Geisha Sour Ale. The concoction is a blend of Panama Geisha coffee with one of the company’s award-winning sour ales. While the sour ale has been available for a couple decades, the company decided to find ways to present that beer, and others, in new and unique ways. The coffee makes the drink silky and rich while the ale gives a bright note. While the company acknowledges that this is the most expensive beer they have ever made, a portion of the proceeds will go to a grant that will help distribute climate resistant coffee types to smaller coffee farmers around the world.
