Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Coffee In The News

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

Holland or Netherlands? Both Know Coffee!

[Another in our series on great coffee places.]

Recently, we heard some people talking about visiting Holland. After hearing more, we realized what they really meant was that they were traveling to the Netherlands.

Some people refer to the country of the Netherlands as “Holland” but that is not accurate.

Holland, to the Dutch, refers to the 2 provinces of North- and South-Holland (highlighted in orange, the country color). The Kingdom of the Netherlands is comprised of 12 provinces, and refers to the entire nation. Although they are used interchangeably, now you know which is which.

We enjoy writing about the Netherlands, because that is where Douwe Egberts began and still exists there more than 260 years later.

We know you enjoy Douwe Egberts too, so we are offering 10% off all our Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum order. at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Autumn: Perfect For Visiting Holland

With (astronomical) fall officially arriving in a few days, it got us thinking about this season as it is in the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. The autumnal weather in the country comes with a chill, with highs in the fifties (Fahrenheit).

Arriving at Amsterdam’s Central Station, the historic monument and working central station, you’d need a scarf and gloves – the wind is biting! — as you navigate the narrow streets within the city. The station was built in the 1880’s, designed by the same architect who conceived the Rijksmuseum, also known as the Dutch National museum, which is nearby. Everyone gets a selfie in front of the station where giant letters spell out the city’s name.

Walk down the Damrak (main road) from the station and in five minutes, you arrive at Dam Square. Here the Royal Palace stands, build in the 17th century. It is no longer home to the Dutch royal family, but is still used to hold official receptions. Across the square is the National Monument statue, erected in memory of Dutch soldiers and members of the resistance who died during World War 2.

As beautiful as the monuments and architecture are in the Netherlands, no trip would be complete without a good cup of Douwe Egberts coffee as you sit at a small café table. It might be cold outside, but like any hearty Dutch citizen, it is worth it to enjoy the sights from your chair. The coffee warms you in many ways.

Take away the chill of the season with 10% off all products under the Douwe Egberts section of www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

With 260 Years of Expertise, Douwe Egberts Knows Coffee

2016_Amsterdam Panaramic View from canal

The Netherlands has been home to Douwe Egberts for 260 years.

In the recent news, we discovered several ‘firsts’ for this beautiful country.

Did you know that an osprey (a fish eagle) 2016_Osprey in Flighthatched for the first time ever in the Netherlands? Normally, the country is a just a stop-over for these birds as they migrate to northern and eastern Europe. Last month, State Forestry officials noticed a pair brooding. The location is deliberately being kept secret.

Would you be surprised to know that the world’s first underwater musical band performed in Rotterdam just this week? (Yes, performing underwater is now a thing.) The band used specially-designed instruments and a special vocal technique for underwater singing. Check out the link on our Facebook page for more on this performance.

In the first of its kind, a medical center will depend on cloud-based data analysis for research from multiple sources within the campus. Data includes medical records, medical imaging and genomics, a cutting-edge discipline that leverages DNA data to improve drug treatment results with cancer and other diseases. Although the technology is in use for condition-specific research, this effort will be the first to aggregate data across an entire institution.

Douwe Egberts as a company boasts many firsts too. Douwe Egberts was one of the first coffee roasters in the history of roasting and selling coffee. The company was the first to start a loyalty program for frequent buyers. In 1925, the red DE seal 2016_DE Red Seal early versionappeared for the first time.   In 1967, Douwe Egberts coffee was advertised on television for the first time. Douwe Egberts coffee is delicious, whether it is your first time trying it or just your first time trying it today.

So go ahead – try a new roast, stock up on your favorite roast or splurge on several roasts. We will give you 10% off your order on www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*
