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

Coffee In The News

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.

Coffee in the Spotlight: Italian Coffee

espresso-filter
Italians have loved coffee since it first arrived at the port of Trieste, Italy, in the 16th century. Italians drink coffee first thing in the morning, after lunch, at work and then after dinner. (Italians will point out that they don’t drink cappuccino after midday, as they consider the drink to be only for breakfast.) Coffee is an art in Italy, especially and most notably, with espresso.

In Italy, the coffee shop, known as the coffee ‘bar’, is extremely popular too! When you enter, you will find a lot of people standing while drinking their espressos. That’s right…in Italy, café patrons tend to stand for their coffee, served with a glass of water too, as a side drink. Making perfect espresso is a key skill in the bars. This week, we focus on Kimbo, Lavazza and Hausbrandt, Italian coffee roasters in the tradition of true Italian coffees.

A Note About Espresso

Espresso-TortEspresso became popular at the start of the 20th century in Italy with the development of machines built to make coffee. Espresso bars became a place to meet and socialize. Tiny cups were all the rage. The word espresso is used to describe both a roast of coffee (Espresso Roast) and a method of brewing. Espresso is brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through a compressed pack of finely ground coffee. Espresso Roast refers to coffee roasted so that it is somewhat darker than traditional American roasts. The espresso roast highlights the bitter-sweetness of the bean while keeping the acidity (the tartness) down.

These Bears Are A Different Kind of Gummy

coffee-gummiesA candy store has introduced a new product just this week: Coffee-infused, caffeinated gummy bears in three flavors. Cold brew is described as earthy; Bourbon brew is smokier and iced vanilla latte is a vanilla and almond milk espresso flavor. Reviewers found the aromas pleasantly sweet, and the amount of caffeine in a serving is equal to an espresso. The beans are even packaged in small covered cups with tiny straws for those on the go!

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.

German Coffee Roasting: Skillful. Artful. Taste-Full.

As we often say, Germany has been important in the history of coffee around the world. This week, we share two big events in German coffee, one just this year, and one that commemorates an event more than 200 years ago.

SCA-Coffee-Championships

First, the 2019 German Barista and Latte Art Championship took place in Nuremberg this past January. The most skilled baristas from across the country competed for the title, and to be able to move on to the World Coffee Championships. Latte-Art-NurembergBarista participants had only fifteen minutes to prepare a total of twelve drinks for the panel of four judges. One drink had to be an espresso drink, one a milk drink, and one a signature drink. The harder part of the competition was that each contestant had to explain their coffee choices and their preparation to the judges watching. The Latte Art Championship, a separate event, had competitors creating intricate designs that were then judged on visual attributes, creativity, identical patters in pairs, contrast in patterns and overall performance. The winners, from coffee houses in Berlin and Hamburg respectively, will represent Germany in the world competitions. The World Barista Championship is held in April in Boston, MA while the World Latte Art Championship will be held in June in Berlin.

Google-Coffee-Zing

The second set of honors is from Google, for German chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, with an animated doodle (a special, temporary modification of the logo on its homepage). Runge discovered the chemical makeup of caffeine, after studying a bag of coffee beans given to him as a gift. The doodle ran last month on the anniversary of his birthday 225 years ago. The search engine used the doodle to show the chemistry and use of coffee in the logo, along with an animated image of someone sipping coffee and feeling the zing.

Germany is also the home to three of our special German brands: Eduscho, Tchibo and Davidoff. We recommend any and all of these brands for deliciously roasted coffee.


EnjoyBetterCoffee.com offers a wide selection from these three historic brands. Plus, you’ll get 15% off your order when you order Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff coffees, with no minimum purchase required.*

Please use coupon code TCHIBO15

*Discount valid from 3/24/19 through 11:59PM ET on 3/26/19 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off with no minimum order required on Tchibo, Eduscho, and Davidoff coffees. Offer not redeemable for cash. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products. Questions? Call us at 800.582.6617 Mon-Fri 9AM-5PM ET.

PS – We have Tchibo Black and White Instant Coffee already on sale and eligible for the discount above. Instant coffee is in most homes, and regularly drunk in Europe, in part because the instant coffee for the European market is richer and fuller. This blend of select beans is good black or with cream. The freeze-dried instant coffee is in 7oz glass jars, so you can keep it dry and cool, and then reuse the jar.


The Brands Of Tchibo

2015_Tchibo LogoTchibo is a top seller, with several premium products. Try Tchibo Exclusive, great for stovetop Moka makers and espresso, or Gold Selection, an aromatic, unique, medium blend. Both are available in ground and instant. We have several other ground coffees from the Tchibo range: Feine Milde (fine and mild), Beste Bohne (100% Arabica), and Family (full and strong). Looking for a whole bean? Try Tchibo’s Sicilian Espresso roast.

2015_Eduscho logoEduscho opened its first store in Bremen in the 1950’s, soon followed by stores in major German cities. Introduced in 1959, Gala coffee was sold in bakeries which further popularized 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. Eduscho Mild, made from beans grown in tropical climates, is mild, smooth and balanced, with a gentle aroma. Both are available in ground, and both are Eduscho’s top sellers.

Davidoff-Cafe-Logo-NL-BlockDavidoff Café is a luxury brand that creates smooth and flavorful coffee. One of our newest items from Davidoff Café is Crema Intense instant coffee, a special coffee. Another special instant is the Limited Edition Elements and we have 3 other Davidoff instants too. Davidoff makes delicious ground coffee in Espresso 57, Fine Aroma and Rich Aroma. We also have 2 whole beans, Espresso 57 and Crème. Finally, for the Nespresso drinkers, we have 3 different roasts, plus a capsule variety package. All Davidoff products are available for the discount above.

When Is Coffee Not Coffee? When It’s Atomo Coffee!

A new startup company, Atomo Coffee, wants to make your morning coffee without any coffee at all. The company is working on a way to “replicate a standard cup coffee – down to the taste, aroma and even mouthfeel – all with natural ingredients, none of which are coffee beans.” Created by a microbiologist, the process is trying to break down coffee to a molecular level, then rebuilt it, except without using coffee. The ground coffee product is not bitter, but quite smooth, not too dark, not too light, the company claims. This supports their findings that in a blind taste test with university students, Atomo was the clear favorite for 70% of participants.
