Italian Military Exercises Serve Up Strategy and Espresso

ITL-Soldiers-EspressoThe Italian Army’s paratrooper brigade has been taking part in “Swift Response” exercises in eastern Europe this summer, being dropped into the field, then searching for and capturing “the enemy.” One of the most important pieces of equipment they carry is the portable espresso machine, because, well, they love espresso. In their foxholes, the Italians brew espresso, and the other combatants have noticed. An American adviser taking part in the exercises noted that the Italian paratroopers are battle-ready, even when gripping a tiny cup of coffee. In a recent night battle, the paratroopers successfully held their position through a mock challenge. You can be sure they celebrated the win with an espresso.

Jacobs Has A Coffee for Every Cup

Jacobs Coffee started as a small shop in the center of Bremen, and expanded as demand for their products grew. Today Jacobs Coffee is available in more than 20 countries, and a best-seller in shops today.
Jacobs-Banner-Woman-Laughing with cup
Germany is a cradle of coffee, and deserves that honor. Bremen and Hamburg had the first coffeehouses in the 1600’s and coffee was served at the royal court as early as 1675. Berlin opened the first public coffee house in 1721. Even the spelling of the word changed over time – originally “coffee” then “café” then landing on and remaining in Germany as “kaffee.”

Helping to spread the word about Jacobs coffee, in the last month, Jacobs has launched a flagship store in China, one of the fastest growing digital consumer markets in the world. China has gone from traditional tea drinks to instant coffee to now with demand for more freshly brewed coffee products. In the last couple of years, sales of fresh coffee increased by double digits in China.

Sparkling Flavored Coffee Debuts In Cans

sparkling-cold-brewClaiming to be the first sparkling coffee ready to drink in cans, a German company has launched a series of drinks. Flavors include ginger, lemon, and grapefruit. The brews are nitro-infused, meaning it’s a cold-brewed drink with tiny bubbles that remain in the drink to the last sip. Flavored cold brews are becoming more diverse, so look for exotic flavors such as dragon fruit, Kaffir lime, Sicilian Lemon and Arctic Raspberry to show up on the market. As for us, we’ll take a good espresso any time.

It’s A Furniture Store. It’s A Chain Restaurant. It’s Both.

ikeaYou may already know that IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer. There are stores in 38 countries around the world. It turns out that IKEA is also one of the largest international restaurant chains. Of course, they all offer their signature Swedish meatballs, but from there, menus vary by country. Choices on the menu are influenced by the location of the restaurant. For instance, a shop in France offers macarons; a restaurant in Winnepeg offers poutine (French fries with gravy and cheese, a national staple); in India, enjoy curry and biryani.

Coffee in the Spotlight: Italian Coffee

espresso-filter
Italians have loved coffee since it first arrived at the port of Trieste, Italy, in the 16th century. Italians drink coffee first thing in the morning, after lunch, at work and then after dinner. (Italians will point out that they don’t drink cappuccino after midday, as they consider the drink to be only for breakfast.) Coffee is an art in Italy, especially and most notably, with espresso.

In Italy, the coffee shop, known as the coffee ‘bar’, is extremely popular too! When you enter, you will find a lot of people standing while drinking their espressos. That’s right…in Italy, café patrons tend to stand for their coffee, served with a glass of water too, as a side drink. Making perfect espresso is a key skill in the bars. This week, we focus on Kimbo, Lavazza and Hausbrandt, Italian coffee roasters in the tradition of true Italian coffees.

A Note About Espresso

Espresso-TortEspresso became popular at the start of the 20th century in Italy with the development of machines built to make coffee. Espresso bars became a place to meet and socialize. Tiny cups were all the rage. The word espresso is used to describe both a roast of coffee (Espresso Roast) and a method of brewing. Espresso is brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through a compressed pack of finely ground coffee. Espresso Roast refers to coffee roasted so that it is somewhat darker than traditional American roasts. The espresso roast highlights the bitter-sweetness of the bean while keeping the acidity (the tartness) down.

These Bears Are A Different Kind of Gummy

coffee-gummiesA candy store has introduced a new product just this week: Coffee-infused, caffeinated gummy bears in three flavors. Cold brew is described as earthy; Bourbon brew is smokier and iced vanilla latte is a vanilla and almond milk espresso flavor. Reviewers found the aromas pleasantly sweet, and the amount of caffeine in a serving is equal to an espresso. The beans are even packaged in small covered cups with tiny straws for those on the go!

Italian Coffee: Love At First Sip

Debut-Espresso

Italy holds a key role in the history of coffee in Europe. It was in Italy, in fact, that the best-brewed coffee was produced the first-time using steam and pressure. We’re talking about espresso, of course. With the Industrial Revolution well under way, inventors were looking for ways to use steam to brew coffee more quickly. An Italian patent for a new-fangled device in 1884 describes “steam machinery for the economic and instantaneous confection of coffee beverage.” Unfortunately, that device was only used for the Turin General Exposition in the same year, where more than ten thousand exhibitors welcomed three million visitors.

patent-espresso-machineTwenty years later, Luigi Bezzerra, a manufacturer in Milan, invented the first of a series of commercial espresso machines. Early versions heated the water with a flame, making the regulation of heat and steam inconsistent, so the machine had a hard time catching on. Only when a clever designer added the first pressure release valve, along with a steam wand, did the machines start to be produced and used commonly. Introduced at the 1906 Milan Fair, “cafeé espresso“ was a hit, and similar coffee machines were soon popping up all over Italy.

This week, we are putting 3 big Italian roasters in the spotlight:

We have a range of coffees from these popular Italian brands, including two brands with Nespresso-compatible capsules, all perfect for a truly authentic Italian coffee experience.
