As the Viking comedian said: I just rowed in from Norway and boy, are my arms Thor!

Scandi-viking-ship-banner

If you haven’t already guessed, we are highlighting Scandinavian coffee this week. We have found that some people don’t always understand the differences between Nordic and Scandinavian, so let’s start there.

Scandinavia usually means 3 main countries: Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Finland is sometimes included in that list but is not technically Scandinavian. Refer to the countries as Nordic, and you can add Finland and Iceland to the group.

EBC-Scandinavian-Cliches-Crop
A common stereotype is that Scandinavians are blue-eye blonds. While it is true that the percentage of blondes is a bit higher, it’s a long way from being a majority. Another false idea about this region is that everyone’s house is full of IKEA furniture, as it is a Swedish-based company. There are more than 20 IKEA stores in Sweden, nine in Norway and five in Denmark. It is possible that because homes are small there, and IKEA furniture is functional, with clever storage options, you may find some in Scandinavian homes.

But there is one thing that really sets the region apart from any other area of the world: Coffee drinking. These countries drink more coffee than anywhere else in the world, even Italy and France. The Nordic people like strong, delicious filter coffee. And, they drink it all day long. We know they love coffee, they know how to roast coffee and they know how to drink coffee.


We have 3 Nordic coffee brands that will light up your taste buds: Paulig, Lofbergs Lila, and Arvid Nordquist. We will give you 15% off these iconic brands with no minimum order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

*Discount valid from 6/3/2018 through 11:59PM ET on 6/5/2018 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Arvid Nordquist, Lofbergs Lila and Paulig coffees.

Can’t Decide? Read On…

Use our roast reviews to help you decide among these always-enjoyable brews.

Paulig-Advert-wDKRoast-NL-EPaulig, from Finland, roasts and packages coffee out of their facilities in Helsinki. We offer three roasts. Juhla Mokka Ground Coffee is light-roasted, rich, balanced from an intense blend of beans from South America and Africa. Presidentti Ground Coffee is a light roast (1 out of 5) from a blend of beans grown in Africa, and delivers a strong and rich coffee. Juhla Mokka Dark is a medium/dark roast with chocolate and toasted notes. These coffees are perfect examples of Finnish coffee.

Lofbergs-Advert-NLLofbergs Lila, one of the largest coffee roasters in the region, is based in Sweden. We offer three exemplary roasts: Lofbergs Lila Medium Roast is a light roast (2 out of 5) from Arabica beans, with a rich taste and aroma. Jubilee is light roasted (3 of 5) 100% Arabica beans, including beans certified by the Rainforest Alliance (an international sustainability organization we have written about before). Kharisma is dark, intense, and nutty with subtle fruit notes (4 of 5).

Arvid-Advert-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 two roasts: Medium roast and Extra Dark roast, both prime examples of Swedish coffee roasting. In addition, they are UTZ Certified and CO2 Compensated (you can read more about these organizations on the product page). The Medium roast is balanced, with chocolate and spice notes. Extra Dark is full-bodied, and intense, with just the right amount of bitterness.

Try one, two or even more to experience the best in Nordic regional coffee. We get it directly from the area, so you are getting the real deal, just as a native would drink. As they say in Nordic country: “Je er glad i kaffe” which means “I love coffee!” The discount above will help you save.


Coffee In The News

Coffee Makes You Social

Coffee-work-tasksA new study found that people who drank a moderate amount of caffeine before a group activity were not only more alert, but better at tasks in the group. Those who had coffee before participating in an activity saw themselves and the others as more productive and more active. The study attributed the positivity of oneself and others to heightened alertness and improved performance (not a perception of improvements, but actual improvements). So, if you find yourself not liking someone you have to work with, try downing some coffee before the interaction.


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

Sustainable Coffee at Enjoy Better Coffee

Earth Day By The Numbers

Earth Day began as an idea for a national day to focus on the environment. A U.S. Senator from Wisconsin founded the day, after seeing the devastation of a massive oil spill in California the previous year. Promoting the day as a “teach in” and after reviewing college schedules to determine the best time (between Spring break and final exams), April 22 was selected. Here’s a quick tally of some key numbers relating to Earth Day.

ebc-by-the-numbers-earth-day-E3


We have almost a dozen brands that offer sustainable coffee products, and we’ve highlighted a few below. You can celebrate Earth Day by getting 10% off orders of $30 or more of any of our products.*

Sustainable Coffees: Now Grouped On Our Site

EBC-Sustainable-Coffee
You asked to be able to see our sustainable products together, and now you can by selecting Coffee By Type, Sustainable Products to see what delicious coffees you can choose. We also have them grouped along the side by the type of sustainable certification. Here’s some we enjoy:

Lavazza Gran Selezione is Rainforest Alliance Certified, with 100% Arabica coffee beans, intense and full-bodied, with chocolate notes. The medium grind of this ground coffee makes it right for most coffee makers.

All of our illy products are certified by an organization that promotes a Responsible Supply Chain Process, a testament to the quality of illy’s supplier relationships. We have decaf, fine grind (for espresso), Moka grind for Moka pots, and whole beans. The espresso is perfect Italian style, which makes drinking illy a real treat.

UTZ Certification, at a high-level, is a program that is focused on good agricultural practices, farm management and the environmental impacts. The Certification is the largest program for sustainable farming of coffee in the world. Coffee farmers and coffee producers each have their own specifications to meet for certification. We carry a range of UTZ Certified products from Douwe Egberts, Dallmayr, Arvid Nordquist and Maison Du Cafe.

Caffe Vergnano’s Nespresso-Compatible capsules are now compostable, that’s right, the capsules are 100% biodegradable. All five roasts are delicious, convenient and earth-friendly.

Coffee In The News

Coffee Bean Tea In A Bottle

cascara-tea-200pxCascara, the dried skin of a coffee bean, has long been discarded as waste in the processing of the bean. We have mentioned the use of the cascara to enhance drinks, but now, a company is bottling a tea made from the husks.

Considered a superfood, the cascara skin is all antioxidants, polyphenols (for immunity), and caffeine. The tea is in four flavors, including sweetened original. The company behind the tea makes cold brew coffees, and sees their products as minimizing waste, supporting sustainable coffee farmers, and offering additional opportunities for local farmers.

Technology Delivers Clear Coffee

Touted as the “first colorless coffee drink in the world,” the makers of the product use technology and high-quality ingredients to produce a clear caffeinated liquid that has no preservatives, artificial flavors, sugar or other sweeteners. Taste testers describe it as “drinkable” with a “cheap wine” aftertaste. The drink is only available in the United Kingdom right now, but the makers are planning to expand to the U.S.
