The Netherlands is the home to this iconic brand, and we enjoy writing about this unique country. We especially like to highlight sights to see on a visit and other things that make this area special.

So how about a trip to the floating flower market in the largest city of the region? The Amsterdam Flower Market is the only floating flower market in the world, smells wonderful and is open all year round! The market has been there since 1862, right on the Singel canal, when boats were used to deliver the flowers to the vendors.

While the market is one of the main flower suppliers in town, the souvenir shops alongside also draw a crowd. The flower market is open every day of the week.

 

While the market has the freshest flowers, bulbs and seeds, Enjoy Better Coffee has the freshest coffee from the Netherlands. In fact, we just got a shipment in, right off the boat, as it were! And, this is our deal for you today:  Take 10% off your order of Douwe Egberts products with no minimum order!*

Has spring sprung for you yet? For many, spring means that annual task: Spring Cleaning. Like Erma Bombeck, who preferred to “sweep the room with a glance” rather than a broom or vacuum, you want it to be easy to tackle.

Here are some of our favorite tips to make the process a little easier:

1. Open the windows to let some fresh air in.

2. Keep your supplies in a convenient carrier that you can move easily from room to room.

3. Plan for easy meals for the days you will be busy with cleaning.

4. Use common household standards for cleaning rather than harsh chemicals. Baking soda scrubs without scratching, vinegar can clean most items, even used coffee grounds can be used as a mild scrub and deodorizer (see below).

5. Have upholstery and carpeting professionally cleaned rather than attempting to clean them yourself.

6. Use empty laundry baskets to pile in anything that you need others to sort through themselves. This is a good time to add a basket for items to be donated.

7. Set a timer for 15 or 20 minutes and focus on cleaning during that time. When the timer goes off, take a break, then set the timer again, and focus on cleaning for the time. Breaking the work up into small chunks makes it less intimidating.

8. Check your pantry and refrigerator for items shoved to the back months ago. Check expiration dates. Can’t see the date? Perhaps it is time to follow the old rule: “When in doubt, throw it out.”

9. Clean the door handles, switch plates and knobs around the house. When was the last time you did that?

10. This is the most important one: Clean your coffeemaker. Scrub components of the machine then run a vinegar solution through followed by a couple clean water runs.  Your coffee will taste better!

Spring is also – that’s right, you guessed it – a good time to stock up on some new coffees for your pantry (after all, you’ll have plenty of room once you clean it out!). Let us help by offering you 10% off your order of $30 or more at www.enjoybettercoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: EBCSPRING

*Discount valid through 4/4/2017 at 11:59 p.m. PST with $30 minimum order at www.enjoybettercoffee.com, Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

PS- Don’t forget Easter is Sunday, April 16th. This is your last chance to order something for that special day without having to pay for expedited shipping. Order today!

[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.*

Please use coupon code: DEMAR10

*Discount valid through 11:59 pm PST 3/21/17 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com for Douwe Egberts and Senseo brand coffee with no minimum order. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale Douwe Egberts and Senseo products.

PS – The shipment we just received of Douwe Egberts coffee includes a new roast in ground:  Douwe Egberts Dessert coffee in 8.8oz/250g packages. This well-balanced blend is mild, good for drinking anytime, not just for dessert! Be one of our first customers to tell us about it! Order today.

2017_eilles-kaffee-logoOur first new range is Eilles Kaffee, from Germany. Their slogan is “Enjoy the good things in life.” A distinctive and special blend of beans, Eilles Kaffee uses highland beans, which assures a high-quality coffee. For more than 130 years, Eilles Kaffee has been the preferred brand in Germany. In fact, Bavarian King Ludwig II served only Eilles coffee at court during his reign in the later 1800s. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant, and Eilles Kaffee Arabica in ground. The beautiful blue and gold packaging evokes the royal court; the aroma and flavor are unforgettable.

2017_idee-kaffee-logo
Also from Germany is IDEE Kaffee, a wonderfully mild classic coffee. The roasting process IDEE uses eliminates any undesirable elements with the beans prior to roasting, reducing bitter flavors that may result from regular roasting. This leaves a mild tasting coffee, with higher caffeine content, which is easier on the stomach. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic coffees.

2017_movenpick-logo
Introducing Movenpick from Switzerland, this coffee is roasted gently and carefully following an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground and whole bean, taking high-altitude beans from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste. We also have Movenpick Espresso in whole beans, which has a rich and strong taste and aroma.2017_mozart-kaffee-logo

 

Finally, we have a coffee from Austria named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is a symphony of flavors, notes and aroma. Well-balanced, delicious and irresistible, this coffee brand produces. We have a Mild ground coffee that is light and Intensive ground and instant, with a powerful aroma and taste.

If you know a true coffee lover – or you just know someone who should enjoy better coffee – then we have the goods!

Get 1-2 bags of whole beans and include an espresso in ground or whole bean (our prices are that good!). Give the coffee with one of our beautiful stovetop Espresso Makers and you’ve upgraded the coffee experience for someone special!

Our favorite way to enjoy coffee is with the French Press, a classic. Add in any coffee and a cup or two, and you have the perfect coffee gift!

For the person who owns (or is getting) a Nespresso machine, we have a wide range of Nespresso-compatible capsules at prices that can’t be beat! We have several great brands of capsules, including Caffe Vergnano, Kimbo, Dallmayr and the beautifully-boxed Davidoff capsules, along with several other brands. We also have capsules for Segafredo Espresso machines.

FOR THE CHOCOLATE LOVER:

We have some delicious chocolate options for gifts. Give L’Ancienne Instant Chocolate, made with only 3 ingredients (sugar, cocoa and vanilla), imported from France. Include a Kusmi Spicy Chocolate Tea for a real twist of chocolate. We have Chocolate Butter cookies and Almond Cake with Chocolate to round out the chocolatey goodness.

FOR THE TRAVELER:

Offer a virtual tour of a foreign land. Select a coffee or two from Germany, Italy or France. Add a glass or cup and saucer or a French Press or stovetop espresso maker. Throw in a box or two of cookies or other sweets and you have a simple, yet creative and delicious gift created especially for the recipient. Try these combos:

Delicious German coffees, Dallmayr and Jacobs, given with a double walled cup, or two, and a French Press maker.

The Italian coffee experience could include Lavazza, Kimbo, Miscela D’Oro, Segafredo and/or Hausbrandt. Add a matching cup and a package of Mayora Coffee Joy Biscuits and the recipient will think they’ve gone to Rome!

A trip to France should include delicious Carte Noire coffee, a beautiful French Press maker and cake from Biscuiterie De Provence and assorted butter cookies from Pierre Biscuitere.

Know someone who travels often? Give them one of our delicious instant coffees. In Europe, instant coffee has a different flavor profile and is extremely popular. In addition to iconic brands such as Davidoff, Tchibo, Douwe Egbert and Jacobs, we have large and smaller packs of instant coffee, some that include a ceramic mug. We also have instant coffee that already has the milk and sugar added, making it super-convenient.

Can’t decide? On our site, select Coffee By Type, then Coffee Gift Items, and choose from a variety of tins, double-packs, gift sets with mugs and/or scoops. Several of our gift sets allow you to choose from a selection of coffees. Still not sure what to give? Give a gift certificate, increments begin at $15, and let them choose themselves.

Need more ideas? Chat with us live at our site and we’ll help!
