Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

International Coffee Day: 29 Sep – 1 Oct

EBC-Internatinal-Coffee-Day-2017

What’s not to like about a day that celebrates coffee and lasts, well, 3 days!

That’s right. International Coffee Day (ICD) began on Friday, and on Sunday, events will cap the big celebration. Activities have been taking place around the world.
The origins of this holiday are rather unclear. Although there are many references to such a day going back to the 1980’s, it is the International Coffee Organization (ICO) that takes credit for this third annual celebration. Two years ago, the day was launched in Milan, Italy, with 70 events in 35 countries. Last year, almost double the number of events took place in 54 countries. This year, it’s expected to be bigger than ever!

In the meantime, consider that www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a wide range of premium coffee from Europe made for the European market, so the flavor profiles are richer and more robust. Many of these companies are also focused on the same goals as International Coffee Day: Celebrate coffee, promote fair trade coffee and raise awareness of sustainability concerns.

We have Bristot, Dallmayr, Lavazza, Arvid Nordquist, Mount Hagan, Douwe Egberts and more, all companies that follow certified production guidelines from sustainability-based organizations such as UTZ Certified and the Rainforest Alliance. Find our range of sustainable products here.

Let’s celebrate European coffee and International Coffee Day! We’ll take 10% off your order of $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: COFFEEDAY

*Discount valid from 10/01/2017 through 11:59 PM EDT on 10/03/2017 for 10% off orders of $30 or more not including cost of shipping at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

 

A Little About The ICO and This Year’s Celebration

coffee-landmarks-color-200pxThe ICO is a proactive intergovernmental organization for the coffee industry comprised of representatives from seventy-seven countries. These countries account for 98% of the world’s coffee producers and 83% of the world’s coffee consumers. This year, the Specialty Coffee Association and World Coffee Research have joined forces to promote
the research group’s mission. WCR has been a leader in science-based research particularly with new coffee varieties, focused on quality, taste, and environmental resilience. In addition, this day will also kick-off the Sustainable Coffee Challenge here in the United States. The collaboration includes coffee companies, governments, and other groups across the coffee industry, all with the goal of making coffee the world’s first completely sustainable agricultural product.

Death Wish Coffee Recalled For Being Lethal

death-wish-coffee2The USDA has recalled cans of Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew because of fears of botulism. There may be a concern with the brewing process leading to the growth of the toxin. The coffee has approximately twice the caffeine of normal coffee. We’re all for coffee names reflecting the roast, the taste or its effect, but not in this case.

 

Virtual Coffee Meet-Up Celebrates ICD

One way to celebrate the big day this weekend is to post a picture of yourself enjoying a cup of coffee, alone or with friends, on Sunday, Oct 1. The hope is that people all over the world will meet-up at this virtual café at Darkshot Coffee on Facebook. BTW, details of your coffee are required with the post.

Fresh Douwe Egberts Coffee: Just Off The Boat!

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.
