Coffee In The News, Expanded Edition, From EnjoyBetterCoffee.com

Turns out, coffee has been in the news recently, and sometimes for the most unexpected reasons!

EBC-Coffee-In-The-News-Banner

Let’s start down under, in Melbourne, where three different cafes offer a freshly brewed organic coffee that costs just over $100 USD per cup, or in this case, per glass goblet. With flavor notes of lychee, passionfruit, cognac, and cocoa, it’s a “lavish” and special blend that costs about $3500 USD per kilo.

air-force-coffee-mug-cropIn news from the Air Force, there is discussion around the costs for replacement coffee mugs used by personnel working on air-refueling tankers. The cups are able to reheat the liquid, but are easily dropped, and the handle is the first to go. The department is replacing the mugs, at $1280 apiece, when this happens. The Air Force is looking into ways to produce new handles, possibly with a 3D printer, to help save money.

If you’d rather stay planted firmly on the ground, you can stay in a tiny house (of TV fame) that is powered by coffee. Well, ok, a generator powers the 275-square foot home using a biofuel blend of 80 percent coffee oil extracted from coffee grounds. The space includes a loft bed, full-sized bathroom, spa tub, and cedar porch. Unfortunately, it’s booked solid for its limited run at its current location near Boston.

edible-water-cropA UK company has been extracting natural minerals from plants and seaweed in order to create waste-free alternatives to disposable plastics such as bottles, cups, and plates. Its first product is an edible water bottle made from brown seaweed. Seaweed decomposes in weeks, it’s cheap and easy to grow and harvest, plus it’s readily available on coastlines. Now, company resources are working with the brown seaweed to make a sustainable paper cup for to-go drinks. The European Union has a goal to make all packaging reusable or recyclable by 2030.

Coffee And Your Health

Turkish-coffee-300pxA Spanish scientist has found that Turkish coffee is the richest in polyphenols, a compound in coffee that research suggests helps reduce the risk of heart disease. Scientists acknowledged this after studying the locals from a Greek island who happen to live beyond the age of 90. These locals drink coffee daily, 3-4 cups per day. We have Turkish coffee under Coffee By Type, if you want to experiment.

Also in the news this week was the release of a report that found women who drank four or more cups of coffee per day had a 23 percent lower chance of getting rosacea, a skin disorder, compared to those who drank less than a cup a month. As always, further studies are required to understand how it all works.

Not that any of us need more reasons to drink coffee, but it’s good to know anyway!


And Finally, Just In Time For Halloween…

Haunted-Coffee-Shop

Real-life paranormal investigators have found that a coffee shop in Marietta, Georgia, is “definitely haunted.” Baristas had been reporting strange things: “ghostly whispers,” knocked over chairs, and other items out of place. Shop owners invited the paranormal PI’s to check into it. During their time in the café, they and others heard a baby crying, and with their electromagnetic reading equipment, claimed that some ‘uncooperative spirits’ were hanging out in a corner booth, and in a hallway. With Halloween just around the corner, seems the timing of this “news” is just a bit too coincidental. Just sayin’.

Germany: Passionate About Coffee

Germany, much like Italy, has played a pivotal role in the history of coffee in Europe. There were established coffeehouse in Germany as early as the 1670’s in Hamburg and Bremen, key shipping ports that ultimately brought coffee into Germany and eastern Europe. With the spread of coffeehouses over the next 50 years, women could be found frequenting the café, and even more shockingly, met and chatted with other women in the open. This was not happening in other countries, making Germany ahead of its time!

Kaffeeklatsch-German-Coffee-Banner-600px
One of Germany’s largest contributions to the long history of coffee is the humble coffee filter. That’s right, the almost-indispensable-disposable filter that keeps the grounds out of your cup and pot was created and sold by a German woman in the early 1900s. She loved drinking coffee but hated the mess of the grounds and cleaning up. At this time in coffee history, making coffee in Turkish style was common, which creates grounds in the cup. Melitta-BentzSome did try to strain the coffee through cloth, but none of it was easy. As her son would say later, she hated grounds in her cup. One morning in frustration, she grabbed a piece of blotter paper from her son’s school book sitting on the table (because writing was done with nibs dipped in ink wells). She strained the boiled coffee through the paper and an empire was born. She tested the process with friends at coffee afternoons, and eventually, she had the product patented. In the early days, the business was run out of the family home, so her two sons delivered products while her husband performed demos on how to use the product. (He eventually outsourced that job to “demonstration ladies” employed for just that.) You may have already guessed that this woman was Melitta Bentz, from Dresden. Today the company employs more than 4000 people worldwide with revenue close to $2 billion USD.

Jacobs flagship coffee is Kronung, [“coronation” in German], and is widely known for its aromatic qualities, mellow flavor and reasonable price. We have several options including Mild and Balanced.

Maple Is The New Pumpkin-Spice

maple-latteIt’s that time of year for pumpkin spice to make its grand but seasonal entrance. Between a cooking magazine predicting maple syrup will be bigger than pumpkin spice and the caloric and sugar counts of maple latte vs the spice latte (lower on both counts), maple is poised to take the crown. What do you think of maple or spice lattes? Tell us on our Facebook page!

Here are just a few tastes of the top European coffee brands

Italian-Coffee-Intl-Coffee-DayFirst up, Italy. Italy is the cradle of coffee civilization. Maybe that’s why there are some serious rituals and customs when ordering coffee in Italy, especially for what and when. The science of espresso has been honed through the decades here, so the flavors and aromas are fragrant and strong. Beans are ground at the time of ordering, so cafes themselves can be rather noisy places. You’ll get a glass of water with the coffee, to cleanse your palate before and after the coffee. Drink up quickly, you may as well, since you are likely standing when you are served.

EnjoyBetterCoffee.com has an extensive selection of Italian coffees, all premium and artfully crafted coffees. From Lavazza, choose from many ground coffees, from Caffe Espresso (dark and velvety) to Qualita Rossa (a balanced blend perfect with milk) to Classico (full-bodied with fruity notes) to Intenso (dark, bold, smoky), with many options in between, and beyond! Several of these are available in whole beans, and we also have Lavazza roasts for Nespresso. We can’t go into all 31 roasts here, but trust us, Lavazza is, as they say, “From Italy with passion.”


Austrian-Coffee-Intl-Coffee-DayNext is Austria. Home to some of the oldest coffee houses in the Western world, the traditional cafes are in Vienna and Salzburg. The servers wear dinner jackets, and serve your coffee on small silver plates, with a glass of water alongside, and sometimes, a piece of chocolate. Everyone drinks the Melange, a coffee drink with frothed milk and steamed coffee, similar to a cappuccino. Have one any time of day.

We offer a range of coffees from the top Austrian brand, Helmut Sachers, including Vienna Blend (fine and aromatic), Deluxe (rich and creamy, great for espresso drinks) and Espresso (rich). These roasts are available in both ground and whole beans. Superb is a special blend of fine beans roasted slowly, the Viennese way, creating a smoother and full-flavor coffee.


Let’s head to France for delicious coffee and chocolate drinks.
French-Coffee-Croissant-ParisStreetside cafes line the streets, with small round tables where a leisurely coffee is the rule. In fact, most of the time, the chairs will be turned to the street or corner or square facing out just to watch the world go by. Café au lait, drip coffee with plenty of milk, is often consumed in a bowl with breakfast. Noisette, another popular drink, is an espresso with just a dash of milk. The name refers to hazelnuts, because the coffee turns to that color once the milk is added.

We have coffees from Carte Noire, a top French coffee brand, in ground, whole beans, Senseo coffee pods, and decaffeinated ground. We also have A L’ancienne instant chocolate in assorted size and serving options. In addition, we have two different French brands of fruit candy and pastilles.


Swiss-Coffee-Intl-Coffee-Day-400pxFinally, our whirlwind tour lands in Switzerland, where coffee comes in a real cup with a small piece of chocolate to enjoy alongside, and you’re expected to pay with cash. You’ll find to-go coffee places at railway stations. In restaurants, coffee is ordered and served at the end of the meal.

Our Swiss brands include Davidoff Café, available as instant, ground, Nespresso capsules, and even one roast, Davidoff Café Crème, in whole beans. Davidoff Café makes premium coffee, with a luxurious taste and aroma. As the founder of the brand said: “I have a simple taste, only the best.” Another famous Swiss brand is Movenpick, and we have one of their most popular roasts, Der Himmlische, in ground and whole bean. We also have four Movenpick roasts, including decaffeinated, in Nespresso capsules.

You’ll find all our brands by country on the Coffee By Type page.

The DNA of Coffee

Genome-Arabica-250Just this week, Lavazza and Illycaffè announced that they have achieved the first fully sequenced genome for arabica coffee and available to the public. The project began in 2015, with the goal to ensure future coffee agriculture. Per the researchers, having access to the genome is “an essential precursor to unlocking the potential of genetics research to transform coffee production.” (Note: The download requires registration and specialized software to open the file.) We aren’t sure what all this might do, but we are watching and will keep you posted.

Munich and Bremen: Fun Fairs, Parades, Oompah Bands and Beverages

This week, we are highlighting two historic German coffee brands, each based in one of the above notable cities, and both extremely popular brands of coffee inside (and outside) German borders.

image6119319Dallmayr Coffee began in Munich, is headquartered there today, and is still run by family members. During the first 100 years of operation, the company supplied coffee to many royal courts of Europe.

Jacobs Coffee started as a small shop in the center of Bremen, and expanded as demand for their products grew. Today Jacobs is available in more than 20 countries, and a best-seller in shops today.

image6119448

image6119182-200-CIn Munich, the big celebration known as Oktoberfest to the world, ‘Wiesn’ in Munich, just opened festivities yesterday! Today, there is a traditional costume parade, and tents are filled with long wooden tables, some holding up to 10,000 guests.

image6119312 (1)One tent run by a local café and bakery will actually be baking pies and cakes inside the tent, which holds about 400 people, and has a band playing every evening. Be sure to get yourself a fresh pretzel when you grab a Dallmayr coffee there. Interestingly, you can make reservations in a tent to be assured of a place to sit, eat and drink.

In Bremen, the biggest celebration in this city is the Freimarkt, a celebration lasting 17 days starting in mid-October. There are more than 50 cutting-edge fair rides, lots of beer, a big parade, and regularly draws more than four million people. If you recall the story of the Bremen town musicians, then you should be amused that all around the town, you will find sculptures of the four animals. Be sure to rub the donkey’s hoof for good luck! Bremen is also known for beer (Becks Brewery is located here) and for coffee, Jacobs, of course.
