Must Have Coffee

Coffee-Add-Ins-Banner-E

Not just our first words in the morning, coffee is also a great idea for a party. Whether you have just a few guests or dozens, be sure you offer coffee to your guests. Some people (like us) love good coffee any time of the day; for others, it will be appreciated later in the evening. Offer both decaf and regular, and hot water available for instant drinks and hot cocoa.

Surround the carafes holding the liquids with different sized-cups, spoons and all the stir-ins you can find. Try simple flavors such as:

  • Small chocolate candies (kisses in many flavors; Andes)
  • Flavored syrups
  • Hot cocoa mix (add a spoonful to coffee – yum!)
  • Good instant coffee
  • Raw sugar
  • Real cream
  • Candy canes
  • Whipped cream
  • Candied orange peel
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Assorted teas
  • Flavored creamers
  • Spices: Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Lavender, Cloves (to name a few)
  • For Adults only: Kahlua, Frangelico, Chambord, Whiskey, Cognac

You can be as elaborate or as uncomplicated as you want. You may already have a lot of potential add-ins in your pantry.

Speaking of keeping things simple…


Coffee-Related Appetizers

Coffee makes a delicious BBQ sauce or rub. Serve grilled or broiled pieces of steak, chicken or pork, cut into chunks or strips, on skewers, or prepare (or buy) chicken wings, with a selection of BBQ sauces alongside for dipping. Add a coffee BBQ sauce to baked beans, shredded meat sliders, or for meatballs or sliced sausages in the crockpot.

Here’s an easy coffee BBQ sauce recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 2 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Directions

  1. Combine ketchup, coffee, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in black pepper, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce.
  3. Store in the refrigerator. Can be made in advance.

Holiday Traditions Across the Globe

EBC-CHRISTMAS-2018-NL-E2
Over the next two days, billions of people across the globe will pause their usual work and take part in a special event wherever they are. Perhaps that event is a religious church service. Or maybe it’s a particular meal with family or friends. Or maybe it’s just taking some time on your own to read or reflect.

Just as the holidays here are filled with traditional activities, so too are the cities and towns across Europe, and beyond, as people prepare for and carry out their seasonal rituals. Because EnjoyBetterCoffee.com has the best of European coffee made for the European market, we thought you would enjoy knowing a bit about some of the traditions of the countries that produce our most popular coffees.


But first, here’s our special deal for the holiday:

We’ll take 15% off your order of $30 or more of our products on our site when you order by Wednesday, December 26!*

Please Use Coupon Code: HOLIDAY15

*Discount valid through 11:59PM ET on 12/26/18 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with $30 minimum order required before shipping cost. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products. Offer not redeemable for cash.

Hyvää Joulua

sauna-210pxChristmas Eve starts early in Finland (it will be dark by 3pm that day), so breakfast is a traditional rice porridge and plum fruit juice. Between morning and the early evening, traditional activities include decorating the tree, taking a sauna, and visiting the graves of family members to leave a candle-lit lantern at the site.

God Jul

Christmas Eve is also very important in Sweden. The main meal that day will be a buffet served at lunchtime. There will be lots of fish: cured, smoked and pickled, and served in many different ways. Ham is special, along with turkey, roast beef, pate, salads, breads, sausages, cabbage rolls, pigs’ feet, and many potato- and cabbage-based side dishes. Pastries and cookies are served as dessert.
Swedish-Christmas

Frohe Weihnachten

Silent-Night-crAustrians speak a dialect of German, so “Merry Christmas” is the same in Austria, Germany and, as it happens, in Switzerland. The big holiday tradition starts on Christmas Eve, when the tree is lit for the first time, and everyone sings carols around the bright tree. “Silent Night” is the most traditional carol, perhaps because it was written in Austria in the early 1800’s.

Buon Natale

7fishes-ITIn Italy, Christmas Eve finds family and friends enjoying “The Feast of the Seven Fishes” which of course includes 7 courses of fish (think eel, smelts, clams, mussels, and shrimp, to name a few).

Frohe Weihnachten

Stollen-cropThe Christmas tree itself is a big part of the holiday celebrations in Germany. You may already know that tree decorating as a Christmas tradition began in Germany, and was brought to England by Prince Albert, who married Queen Victoria of England in the 1800’s. A traditional treat for this time of year is stollen, bread with dried fruits, nuts, spices and icing.

Joyeux Noel

Yule-Log-CropIn Provence, France, the Christmas Eve meal is followed by Thirteen Desserts. It’s most important to have 13 offerings rather than have any specific treat. Across France, though, nothing beats the popularity of the Yule Log cake. Decorated with frosting, marzipan and cream meant to look just like a log, right down to the bark and mushrooms growing alongside, the cake is adorned with red and green holly to emphasize the season.

Most importantly, the one thing that all these countries have in common is simple: Coffee is served with the meal and/or dessert.

Try any of our coffees from these countries or beyond – Look under Coffee By Type, where we have grouped coffees by country.

Go ahead, treat yourself to some fresh European coffee and use the discount above. Order now!

Have a wonderful holiday week – and next week, look for some coffee-related party tips in our newsletter!


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

Ohh La La! French Products In The Spotlight At Enjoy Better Coffee

This week across Europe, Christmas markets are springing up in all the big cities. In France, “marchés de Noel” have been traditional holiday spectacles since the 16th century. Today, France has the second largest number of Christmas markets in Europe.

EBC-French-Christmas

French Christmas markets offer all sorts of local products: Lavender from Provence; soap from Marseille; wines from Bordeaux and Champagne, to name a few, plus all the seasonal goodies: Christmas trees, decorations, lights, short plays and musical performances; and, of course, the arrival of Saint Nicolas, who officially opens the Christmas season.

Eiffel-Tower-Christmas-Market-NBThe very best Christmas markets in the country each have a little extra to draw the crowds. For example, the market in Paris is set-up right in the middle of the business district. In Amiens, famous for its sugary sweets, the event includes a nightly light and sound show projected onto the town’s gothic cathedral. The market in Reims offers plenty of its local champagne, but also has a dry ski slope for visitors to try. In Licques, the market highlights festive food. After a parade of live turkeys through the town center, revelers enjoy a shot of the locally-made spirit, licquoise, before selecting their live bird.

At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have a great range of French products, a selection of instant chocolate and coffee drinks, sugar cubes and hard candies, and most importantly, coffee, of course. Ooh-la-la!

Our Products Highlight the Best of France

French-BrandsCarte Noire began 35+ years ago when Rene Monnier started his own coffee business after years working in the family’s coffee blending and roasting business.

Ground coffee: An intense and rich blend made from 100% Arabica beans, including a decaffeinated version

Velours: Sweet and aromatic, as velvety as it sounds

Whole beans: Grind the 100% Arabica beans right before brewing for a rich, aromatic cup

L’OR began in 1992 with a mission to create the finest French coffee. We have Classique, an aromatic and lushly balanced medium roast blend in jars of instant and packs of 25 individual sticks of instant.

Top French brand Grand Mère is named after grandma because that’s who knows how to make good coffee. We have ground Dégustation (Tasty) and Familial (Family) roasts in 8.8oz packages.

Maison Du Café is produced by Jacobs Douwe Egberts. Ma Tradition is a combination of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans, roasted in the Douwe Egberts process, which produces a fragrant and balanced medium roast coffee.
