It Takes A Village To GLOW and To Make Delicious Coffee

Come Together, Right Now, Over Good Coffee

glow-festival

What happens when you get the best artists, designers, and engineers together to create something completely original, unique and special? When that happens in Eindhoven, Netherlands, as it does once a year, the results are, well, enlightening!

The GLOW Festival 2019, an outdoor light art event, opened yesterday in Eindhoven, and runs for the next week. Visitors to the free event walk a designated path approximately 5km long, where light art installations are on display. The route changes every year to allow different neighborhoods to shine. This popular festival started in 2006 with 45k visitors. The 2018 festival broke all records with more than 750k sightseers. (Eindhoven has a population of just over 200k.) The festival is ranked in the top 5 most-attended light festivals in the world.

de-AdvertJust as with GLOW, the Douwe Egberts team of artists, designers, and master blenders come together to create some of the world’s best coffees. We have a range of Douwe Egberts coffees, from pre-ground to ready-to-grind whole beans, and instant. Because our coffee is made for the European market, the flavor profiles are stronger than coffee produced for the American market.

Be sure to check out our current roast recommendations below.


For the two days, we will give you 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts with no minimum purchase required.*

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

“The smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the world’s greatest inventions.”

We agree! Around here, somebody’s always brewing a cup throughout the day, and nothing smells or tastes better than a freshly brewed cup of good coffee. We also know that more people than ever are making and drinking coffee at home – almost 80 percent of Americans in a recent industry survey said they had drunk coffee at home the previous day.

morning-coffee

Speaking of drinking coffee, would you be surprised to know that $40 billion dollars is spent on coffee per year by consumers? It is the second most-traded commodity after oil.

drinking-coffeeOn average, people in their 20’s start drinking more coffee, as much as 25 percent more. Americans over 60 drink the most coffee, while 37 percent of teens said they drink coffee. Almost half of millennials described the previous day’s cup of coffee as gourmet. In fact, according to the survey, more than half of Americans are specifically choosing gourmet and premium coffees as daily drinks.


Luckily for you, we have delicious premium and special gourmet coffees, made for the European market, so the flavor profile of the coffee is slightly stronger and more intense than American market coffee. We have all the historic European brands, plus several smaller-production roasters. Even better, this week, you can try a new coffee or stock up on your favorites, and we’ll give you 15% off your order of $30 or more.*

The Best Time To Visit Europe

Fall is the best time to visit Europe for several reasons. For one, tourist season has ended, so less traffic by car and on foot. Also, the heat of summer has led to cooler days (and you may recall, this past summer was one of the hottest on record). Most importantly, air fare is much lower in the fall. Consider these locations:

rome-in-autumn

Rome, Italy. You may have seen in the news that the city government has imposed new regulations on visits to their monuments because of issues with too many tourists. During the fall months, the city returns to its normal pace of local life. Plus, the weather tends to be sunny during the day and chilly at night. We have several brands that offer classic Italian espresso and more, including our huge range of Lavazza, illy’s espresso, exclusive wood-roasted Sant Eustachio, authentic Segafredo, in ground and whole bean options. Several of these brands also come in capsules for Nespresso machines, or pods for espresso machines. You can find these directly by selecting Coffee By Type on our site, and choosing capsules or pods, whichever works in your machine.

paris-fallParis, France. No hordes of tourists, street-side cafes still set up tables and chairs – ask for a blanket if you get chilly – and for a short drive outside the city, you can experience the colors of autumn in a national forest. Capture the flavor of the city of lights with Carte Noire coffee, with its intense and unique aroma, and its classic taste.

Berlin, Germany. The city is easy to walk, especially with fewer tourists, and buildings and other colorful street art make wandering the city a worthwhile endeavor. While it can be chilly, you can warm up with comforting wursts and schnitzel, and follow with one of several iconic German coffee brands. We have you covered there with a wide range of Jacobs, Tchibo and Dallmayr coffees. Be sure to check out specialty roasters, Eilles and Eduscho, too.

The discount is only available for a few days, so order now.

Amsterdam: Iconic Architecture And Douwe Egberts

The Netherlands is the home of Douwe Egberts, the most popular coffee in the country. The country itself is iconic – think Dutch canal skating, wheels of cheese, wooden clogs, to name a few – so this week we’re highlighting special sights to see on a visit.
Canal-Row-Sunset
When thinking of Amsterdam, do images of large houses along a canal come to mind? While that is the iconic image, there are also homes not canal-side that reflect the history and architecture of this great city.

rembrandt-house-1Let’s start with the Rembrandt House. The actual building dates from 1606, a prominent house of the time; today the interior is restored and decorated just as it was when Rembrandt himself lived there for 20 years from 1640. The iconic artist painted the majority of his masterpieces while living there, and had a collection of rare objects (suits of Japanese armor and busts of Roman emperors, for instance) along with paintings, drawings and sketches from the Old Masters. His collections and his studio, where he taught students to paint like a master, have been recreated, so the home is now a museum.

One of those houses on a canal is the Anne Frank House. The house opened to the public in 1960 with the mission to encourage freedom, equal rights and democracy. Designated a world heritage site, one million people visit annually.

3d-print-houseOne more house that is must-see: The 3D Print Canal House, made entirely of plastic and foam, is a unique look at 3D printing (one printer was 6 meters’ tall, and is on display), and the process it takes to put it all together. While the construction is still on-going, each piece used is fabricated individually and tacked on to the house. You can also learn about the printing process on your visit.


Even if you can’t be in Amsterdam, you can still enjoy great Dutch coffee with Douwe Egberts from EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. Get 15% off all Douwe Egberts coffee with no minimum order!

Have You Tried These Douwe Egberts Coffees Yet?

DE-Sale-Advert-December-2018-NL
Like a darker roast? Try Douwe Egberts Mocca Aroma coffee, rich and full, with spice and cocoa notes. We have Mocca Aroma in ground and whole beans. Just a reminder that this Mocca coffee is not the kind of coffee/chocolate drink you order at a café, but instead refers to the type of bean.

We have Douwe Egberts Black, a dark, rich coffee in ground. As one of the brand’s most popular coffees, it’s a top-seller.

If you prefer a lighter coffee, try Douwe Egberts Select Aroma in ground. The Arabica blend is silky, smooth, with very subtle notes of fruit, and a mild flavor.

Not sure? Try Aroma Rood, the flagship product, a delicious medium roast, medium strength coffee. We have Aroma Rood in whole beans, ground and instant.

These coffees are made for the European market, so it’s just like a cup served at a canal-side café in Amsterdam! The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

Coffee vs Tea Study Looks At Drinker’s Personality

tea-vs-coffeeA new study of 2000 Americans gathered data to examine how a person’s choice of drink relates to her personality. For instance, you’d think that those of us who drink coffee in the morning would be the loud, extroverted group, but no. Turns out the tea drinkers are outgoing, and night owls, while the coffee drinkers are the creative, introverted types. A few other interesting findings:

• More than 75 percent drink their first cup of coffee or tea before 8AM.
• Tea lovers were more likely to enjoy “The Walking Dead” and “Friends” while coffee lovers prefer “The Office” and “Seinfeld.”
• Coffee drinkers prefer punk, rock, blues and jazz; tea drinkers choose classical, country, pop or hip-hop.
• Coffee types average 3.4 cups per day; tea types sip 2.7 cups.

The study was conducted on behalf of a company that makes disposable paper cups.
