Refreshing Coffee Drinks For Summer

The time is now, in this summer heat, to switch to iced coffee. Whether you are looking for a quick fix or a more involved preparation, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s start with everyone’s summer drink, lemonade, and turn it into a caffeinated Arnold Palmer. Try this cold brew lemonade. You’ll need:

lemonade-coffee1-2 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup (see note below)
4-5 oz water
4-5 oz cold brew coffee (you can use regular brew instead)
Ice

1. Make the lemonade by combining the juice, the syrup and water in a glass. You want to make a slightly tart lemonade, not very sweet. When it tastes the way you want…

2. Add ice to the glass, then top up with the coffee. Stir and enjoy!

NOTE: Make simple syrup by combining equal amounts of water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then allow to cool. Store in the refrigerator for best results. Simple syrup is perfect for iced drinks – no trying to dissolve sugar in a cold liquid.

Affogato-2019-EAnother favorite coffee drink this summer should be an Affogato. The word means “drowned” because the espresso is poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato. The espresso should be hot, and be sure to use a spoon to get every drop. Is it a dessert? Is a drink? You decide. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

Finally, let’s try a Coconut Caramel Coffee. You’ll need:
coconut-caramel-coffee
8 oz coffee
Ice
1-2 Tablespoons coconut milk
1-2 teaspoons caramel syrup

1. Start with the coffee in a mug or glass. Stir in the milk and the syrup. Add a pinch of sweetener if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Hausbrandt-nl-iconAlthough the founder of Hausbrandt the brand was Austrian, he opened a coffee roasting business in Trieste in 1892. The founder, a merchant marine introduced the electric roaster and was one of the first to sell coffee in sealed metal containers in the early 20th century.

CAFFE-VERGNANO-nl-iconDomenico Vergnano opened a grocery store in the foothills of surrounding Turin more than 130 years ago. Today, Caffè Vergnano is one of the top Italian coffee companies, exporting coffee to more than 80 countries.

misceladoro-nl-iconWhen the Urbano family started roasting small batches of coffee in 1946, the guiding principle of Miscela D’Oro was to choose the highest quality raw beans. The company remains committed to sourcing the best raw coffee beans, carefully blending the beans while still green, then roasting them to produce a full-bodied espresso with a rich, thick crema.

sant-eustachio-nl-iconSant Eustachio is known for its wood roasting of coffee beans.

Europe’s Oldest Person, Ran a Coffee Bar, Passes Away at 116

We have written before about some of the oldest people in the world who happen to live in Italy. This month, great-grandmother Giuseppina Robucci died in the southern town of Poggio Imperiale. She is officially the last European born in 1903. (A woman in Japan, 2 months older than Robucci, is the current oldest living person in the world.) Robucci had five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She and her husband ran a coffee bar for much of their lives, and she was even named an honorary mayor back when she was a young 109 year old.

Explore The Brands of Tchibo

The Rich Heritage of German Coffee

Germany has played an historic role in the history of coffee. Just a few highlights:

Coffee-Cantata-Banner

✔ Coffee was imported, sold and served as far back as 1723 when the first coffee house opened in Berlin.

✔ Coffee filters were invented there.

✔ In the heyday of the early coffee houses, German women were able to meet with friends and drink coffee when most other countries were not yet enlightened enough to let women be in public without a chaperone.

✔ The word “kaffeeklatsch” – coffee and gossip – came into common usage during this time.

✔ It was a German roaster who first sent coffee by mail to customers. (Tchibo)

✔ It was another German roaster who figured out that selling coffee in bakeries was a lucrative proposition. (Eduscho)

✔ A German composer named Johann Sebastian Bach composed the music and lyrics of “Coffee Cantata” in 1732. The story was a humorous comment on the coffee culture of the time.

✔ On average, Germans drink more coffee than beer or water.

✔ The second-largest city in Germany, Hamburg, is home to many historic brands, including Tchibo. The city is a major European venue for education and research industries, cultural activities and artistic endeavors.

Perhaps it is the history of coffee in Germany that set the stage, but it’s interesting that more than 80 percent of German adults drink coffee every day. Tchibo, one of our brands in the spotlight today, is in the top 5 coffee brands in Germany. In addition, we are also spotlighting two more German-related brands: Eduscho and Davidoff.

The Brands Of Tchibo

Davidoff-Cafe-Logo-NL-BlockDavidoff Café is a luxurious brand that produces smooth and flavorful coffee. Davidoff makes delicious ground coffee with Espresso 57 (intense espresso, mellow finish), Fine Aroma (delicate and mild), and Rich Aroma (spicy). We also have whole beans in Crème, an elegant, full-bodied espresso with a velvet crema. For the Nespresso drinkers, we have three different roasts, from Style (3 out of 6 intensity), to Elegance (4 intensity) to Prestige (5 intensity), plus all three are available in a variety package. If you like an instant, Davidoff has five different roasts, including Crema Intense and the Limited Edition Elements instant.

2015_Tchibo LogoTchibo is a top seller, with several premium products. Try Tchibo Exclusive Ground coffee, great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, also available in Instant. We have several additional ground coffees from the Tchibo range: Feine Milde (fine and mild), Beste Bohne (100% Arabica), and Gold Selection (aromatic, unique, medium blend). Tchibo also makes Exclusive, a balanced coffee, and Exclusive Decaf, both in ground. Today, Tchibo is served around the world.

2015_Eduscho logoEduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 50’s, soon followed by stores in all the major German cities. Introduced in 1959, Gala coffee was sold in bakeries which served to further popularize the brand in German culture. In 1980, Gala coffee was renamed to Gala Number 1 (Nr. 1) to reflect its status in the market and its flavor and quality. We have classic Gala Nr.1, an Arabica/Robusta blend and have Gala Mild again, which is a smooth, balanced, naturally mild coffee.

So Many Championships, So Little Time

woc-175In Berlin this past few days, the World of Coffee, an event organization that is part of the Specialty Coffee Association, hosted the World Latte Art Championship, World Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, and the World Cup Tasters Championship. Getting an early start every day, drinking, practicing and partying were scheduled through the 4 days of the competition. We are thinking that a lot of people were in ‘good spirits’ for this event!

Blak is Back, Sort Of

coke-plus-coffeeCoca-Cola has been quietly bringing to international markets a soft drink similar to their Blak version released over a decade ago. The company released Blak, a coffee-flavored version of their namesake drink in 2006, and stopped producing it only 2 years later. Chalked up to bad timing then, the company is betting that the world is ready for coffee/cola blends now. The new product contains more real coffee than Blak, and has more caffeine than regular Coke. It might be available in the United States next year, though plans are not defined yet. We think it’s time to brew an espresso.

Dallmayr – Coffee at its Finest

This week we highlight a premium coffee brand, one of the most popular brands in Germany.

Dallmayr-Banner-060219
The secret of Dallmayr coffee starts with the beans – the finest highland beans grown within the global coffee belt. Beans grown in the highlands, at 2600 feet and above, ripen more slowly in the cooler temperatures, allowing the flavor, aroma and acidity to develop gently over time.

Ninety-eight percent of the green coffee beans produced around the world are either Arabica beans or Robusta beans. Arabica beans, grown at higher altitudes, have a fine aroma and a fresh, smooth taste. Robusta beans are grown at lower altitudes, and have a smoky, woody, spicy aroma and taste.

Dallmayr has learned how to blend these beans into delicious coffee, from delicate notes to robust flavors. Happily, there is something for everyone.

Dallmayr also gives advice on how to drink coffee like the experts, referenced below.


In the meantime, get 15% off your order of Dallmayr, no minimum purchase required.*

Single Origin Coffee From Dallmayr

We also have 3 very special single origin coffees: Neiva, Kilimanjaro and Granverde. All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs. Single origin means that the beans are from one single producer, crop or region, and single origin coffee tends to be higher quality coffee.
Dallmayr-Single-Origin-NL-Advert
Dallmayr Neiva is grown in the coffee belt of Columbia. This medium roast is spicy, with a fresh taste and citrus notes.

Dallmayr Kilimanjaro is grown in Tanzania. These unique beans flourish at the foot of the mountain, giving the coffee a balanced flavor with a light floral note.

Try Dallmayr Grandverde, an organic ground coffee grown in Latin America. The coffee has a delicate nutty taste with a soft finish.

These coffees are perfect for coffee drinks, but we can tell you that any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own!


Assess Coffee Like The Experts

The overall impression that we get of a coffee variety is a result of the combination of aroma, body and acidity.

The aroma is perceived through smell (the nose) and taste (the tongue). While the nose can distinguish between an infinite number of nuances, the tongue recognizes the basics: sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami.

The body is the impression which the coffee leaves in the mouth. To get an idea of this, simply imagine the difference between water and milk in your mouth.

The acidity describes the lively, fruity properties of the coffee – which are particularly desired in arabica coffee.

A Flight of Latte Art

bird-latte-artA self-described “home barista” living in Japan has been creating lattes topped with colorful birds. Originally inspired by her own pink parrot, the artist’s work showcases all types of colorful birds, including cockatiels, parakeets and sparrows. Apparently she also takes requests, and will post her work next to the real bird. Referred to online as Bird Latte Art, the work is completed using colored foam. Her work is on Instagram, with more than 1000 posts of her art.

We Have Coffee With Style and Taste

This week, we bring you coffee brands from three European countries: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The coffees we have from brands born and based in these three countries are great examples of coffees distinctive to their regions.

Swiss-German-Austrian-Banner
From Germany, whose coffee houses allowed, even encouraged, women to openly patronize cafes decades before female suffrage, we bring you IDEE Kaffee, and Eilles Kaffee.

From Austria, home to carnival balls and weiner schnitzel (veal cutlets), we have Mozart Kaffee and Helmut Sachers Kaffee.

Finally, from Switzerland, the birthplace of fondue, cheeses, and milk chocolate, you can try Movenpick.


These premium coffees are delicious and flavorful, and because they are made for the European market, they have a slightly more intense flavor profile. With our discount this week, they are worth a good look – and taste! We’ll give you 15% off your order of Helmut Sachers, Eilles, IDEE, Movenpick, and Mozart coffees, with no minimum required.

Our Current Brand Favorites…

From IDEE Kaffee, we have a mild classic coffee made by the J.J. Darboven. Developed by scientists to eliminate any undesirable elements from the beans prior to roasting, the strict process reduces bitter flavors. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans, prepared and gently roasted, which results in a mild coffee that has a higher caffeine content. It’s easy on the stomach and still tastes delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, has created a distinctive and special blend of beans grown in the mountain highlands. Their coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant.

Darboven-and-HS-Brand-Map

Movenpick coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee is a blend of beans cultivated in high-altitudes from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste. Der Himmlische is available in ground, instant, and whole bean. Movenpick also makes capsules for the Nespresso machine, ranging from a rich Espresso Ristretto (intensity 10) to Espresso Intenso (intensity 8) to Lungo Crema (7). All of these capsules are available at our already-low prices. With the discount above, it’s a steal!

A beloved Austrian brand, named for its most famous son, Mozart, produces a coffee with an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee in ground and in instant. You’ll enjoy the powerful aroma and taste.

One of the top Austrian brands, Helmut Sachers is available in several roasts. We have Vienna Blend (fine and aromatic), Deluxe (rich and creamy, great for espresso drinks) and Espresso (rich). These roasts are available in whole beans. Café Superb is a special blend of fine beans roasted slowly, the Viennese way, creating a smoother and full-flavor coffee, and available in ground. We have three other Helmut Sachers roasts, including a decaffeinated version, and an espresso roast, all in ground.


A Note About J.J. Darboven Coffees

jj-logo-beans-e
Four of the brands available for discount this week are part of J.J. Darboven International. For the last 150 years, J.J. Darboven has delivered high premium coffee to homes, hotels and restaurants. Darboven was one of the early coffee sellers to send packaged ground coffee to customers through the mail. The company has existed for four generations, with Darboven family members still running this international business from four roasting plants in nine countries.

Will Coffee Ground Oils Replace Palm?

coffee-grounds-oilA new process being developed by two Scottish men will process used coffee grounds into oil. Because coffee grounds are the largest amount of the waste from cafes, finding a way to keep them from landfills is a high priority. In addition, palm oil, an inexpensive, mass-produced oil used in food processing, is not a sustainable source. The Scots stated that the oil in coffee has a wide range of use, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and household products. Their startup company is only in Scotland so far, but there are plans to expand into additional European cities.

Dallmayr: Literally The Best Coffees In the World

Dallmayr as a trading company began in Munich more than 300 years ago. At the turn of the 20th century, the business was being run by Therese Randlkofer, widow of Anton, who had only purchased the building and store from Alois Dallmayr a mere two years before. Under Therese’s direction, the company was recognized as a key supplier to the royal courts of Bavaria, Germany and other European royal households.

DM-TR-Banner

Dallmayr-Bar-and-GrillThe business flourished so that the Dallmayr Delicatessen was soon recognized as one of the best in Europe. The store employed more than 70 people by 1912, and the space of the shop had been doubled by then. The Dallmayr coffee brand launched in 1933, unique at the time for roasting in the store with a unique electric roaster, and for storing coffee beans in hand-painted Nymphenburg porcelain containers.

Today, the shop is still open at the same location (rebuilt in 1950), offering over 6000 different products, along with sandwiches and salads. There is a two-starred Michelin restaurant, a café/bistro, and a raw bar, all on the original property. And, it’s still a family business.

Dallmayr coffee is flavorful with a smooth texture that is perfect for any time of day.

Dallmayr’s Quality From Bean To Cup

DM-Fav-Products-Advert-NL

The first word that comes to mind when we drink Dallmayr is smooth, from the body to the finish. The beans are carefully selected from the best coffee-growing regions, then blended and roasted at the Dallmayr production facilities in the southeastern city of Geising, about a 45-minute drive due south from Dresden.

We really enjoy Dallmayr coffee, so here’s a sampling of our favorites.

Dallmayr Prodomo is the flagship product, with a strong aroma, a full-bodied taste and smooth finish. We have whole bean and ground. Try a milder version, Prodomo Naturmild (fine and soft, with a gentle aroma).

Dallmayr French Press Selection is a blend created with help from a popular French Press maker. The grind is extra coarse, which is perfect for the French Press maker. The blend is 100% Arabica beans, with a floral and spicy aroma.

Dallmayr Kilimanjaro is a single-origin coffee from Tanzania. These unique beans are grown at the foot of the famous and highest mountain in Africa, giving the coffee a balanced flavor with a light floral note.

For the Nespresso maker, we have 9 Capsa roasts in capsules, including newer special roasts in the Capsa line: Crema d’Oro (light, mild and balanced); Chocolat (notes of caramel and dark chocolate in a smooth, creamy espresso), and Vanilla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma). Other Capsa varieties: Artigiano (strong); Azzurro (intense); Ethiopia (medium); and Decaffeinato (medium/dark).

These coffees are perfect for coffee drinks, but we can tell you that any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own!

Campfire Coffee Gets Upgraded

lumeNot only can you make coffee while living off the grid, a new device will allow you to grind beans just before you brew your coffee. The company behind the device describes it as a Travel Automatic Coffee Grinder. It’s a coffee grinder, and looks and shines like a lantern. At full charge, this burr grinder can grind enough beans for 50 cups. It’s apparently quite popular for use while camping. The six LED lights stay bright for about 20 hours. Launched on Kickstarter 18 months ago, the devices are in high demand. They also offer a French press mug, light not included.

Marshmallow Coffee

peepsA national donut chain is offering an iced donut with a yellow marshmallow chick resting atop. The same chain is also adding the flavor of sugar-covered marshmallow chicks to hot coffee and espresso drinks. We aren’t sure what else to say about this, so you won’t hear another peep from us.
