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:

Jacobs Coffee in the Spotlight

JC-Woman-Magic-Aroma-Banner
Jacobs Coffee is the most popular coffee in Germany according to German consumers. In 1895, Johann Jacobs pioneered the art of commercial coffee roasting. Johann had an exceptional sense of taste and smell, and during his career, he was known and respected as a master roaster. Not surprisingly, Jacobs coffees have wonderful aromas and flavors.

Jacobs flagship coffee is Kronung, German for “coronation,” is a top-seller for its aromatic qualities, mellow flavor and reasonable price. We have several choices in the range, including whole beans, ground and instant. We also have Kronung Mild, from select beans, in ground.

Jacobs Instant coffees are some of their most popular. We have 6 instant coffees, including Americano (finely ground Arabica), Crema (instant with finely ground Arabica beans), Velvet (rich and full), Cronat Kraftig (strong) and Cronat Gold (mild), plus Jacobs Instant Cappuccino, which makes a fine, velvety cappuccino.

Jacobs whole beans are available in the medium and balanced Kronung, Crema (medium), Crema Intenso (medium intense) and Espresso (spicy).

Germany In The News

German City Honors Elvis

Elvis-Traffic-LightsThe central German town of Friedberg, where Elvis Presley was stationed with the U.S. Army from 1958 to 1960, has installed 3 traffic lights with the silhouetted images of the singer. The lights communicate to pedestrians to walk or to wait, or in this case, to sing or dance like Elvis! The red light shows Elvis at the mic and the green light shows him swiveling his hips, his trademark. Since the area is already a tourist destination for Elvis fans, this is just another bit of fun to get them all shook up.

Squirrel Terrorizes Man So He Calls Police

squirrelA German man phoned the police to report that he was being chased by a squirrel, as he frantically ran down the street. The police report states that when they arrived, the rodent was still going after his prey, then suddenly stopped and lay down, allowing the officers to take the squirrel into “custody” and later transferred the little guy to an animal rescue center.

For Sausage Lovers Only

Sausage-themed-bandb
Sausages everywhere: The menu, of course; images on the walls; plastic replicas hanging from mobiles; the soap in the shower and more. You can even lay your head to rest on a pillow made to look like a sausage. The sausage-themed Bed & Breakfast opened in Germany last fall, with seven rooms, and conference spaces catering to foodies. The owner is a 4th generation butcher; his family has produced and sold meats in the small town of Rittersbach, Germany for decades. The Bratwurst Hotel also offers workshops in making wurst, and offers souvenir cans of minced sausage flavored with unusual add-ins such as beer, coffee, and chocolate.

Drink The Best Of Sweden and Finland

Scandi-Banner-November-2018At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have a range of the best coffees from the Nordic region of the world. You’ll find Paulig from Finland, Lofbergs and Arvid Nordquist, both from Sweden, on our site.
Stockholm-Museum-RenoJust recently in Sweden, Stockholm’s National museum reopened after it had been closed for 5 years for restoration. The building, originally built in 1866, needed plenty done: Updating technology, security, accessibility, safety and temperature control. During the restoration, Swedish designers were commissioned to collaborate with more than twenty Nordic manufacturers to furnish and decorate staff quarters, a new restaurant and café, and the public spaces. A total of 82 locally-made products, from furniture, to lighting, to tableware, textiles and toys, are part of the $132 million budget. The designer team researched Nordic manufacturing, traveling throughout the region to find the best ideas. For example, inspired by fishing nets, beech plywood is molded into undulating strips, which are then formed into circular and cube shapes used as shades for lighting. The museum has tripled the number of objects than can now be exhibited, but that is still only 8 percent of their entire collection, which includes work spanning from the late Middle Ages to the present day. The museum reopened late last month, and worth a visit should you be heading that way.


You can be sure the National museum restaurant and café serve Nordic coffee to visitors, and we have the best Nordic coffee. Through Tuesday, get 15% off your orders of Paulig, Lofbergs, and Arvid Nordquist coffees with no minimum required at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Paulig-Advert-wHeinoarominen-2018-NLOur last Nordic brand is Paulig, from Finland. The company roasts and packages their coffee from their facilities in Helsinki.

Coffee Cup Share Program Launches

VesselA company in Boulder, CO delivers stainless steel tumblers to participating coffee cafes for use by customers who may not want to leave with a paper or plastic cup. Comparing the system to borrowing library books, the owners noted that books are borrowed for a while, and if not returned, a fee is charged. For their program, customers order requesting the special tumbler, which has a QR code for tracking, and then can keep the cup for five days before it should be returned to one of the company’s special kiosks found throughout Boulder. Keep the cup too long, and the user is charged $15.
