Caffe-Trombetta-icon-nl-CropWhen Vittorio Trombetta began roasting and selling coffee in 1890, he opened his shop near the main terminal of the train station in Rome. He wanted his shop to be a place for travelers, giving them a chance to experience coffee in the true Italian tradition. Over the next 60 years, Caffè Trombetta grew and gained its reputation as a producer of quality coffee, particularly espresso. We have 3 roasts in Nespresso-compatible capsules, including a decaffeinated version. With the discount above, you will save on our already-low capsule prices!

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. We have a wide range of Caffè Vergnano. Try ground espresso with 100% Arabica beans. We also have 3 special roasts in ground starting with Torino on the less intense side, Venezia in the middle and Firenze at the high-end of intensity. We have 5 roasts, including decaffeinated, in whole beans. We have Caffè Vergnano espresso fine grind, espresso medium grind, decaf fine grind, and six roasts in capsules, including Decaf, for the Nespresso machine, now in compostable capsules.

Hausbrandt-nl-iconHausbrandt introduced the electric roaster and was one of the first to sell coffee in sealed metal containers in the early 20th century. We have a wide selection of Hausbrandt whole bean and ground coffee. Try Hausbrandt Gourmet ground coffee, with spicy and citrus flavors from the delicately roasted 100% Arabica beans, available in ground and whole beans. Hausbrandt Trieste Espresso in whole beans is sweet, with toasty notes, and a cocoa and anise finish.

Illy-nl-icon-editIlly’s founder developed the modern espresso machine. Today, the third generation of the family is still in the business of producing rich, full-bodied, velvety smooth coffee. The signature blend combines nine sustainably-grown Arabica beans from 4 continents. We have restocked a range of illy coffees, from Medium Roast Fine Ground and whole bean, to Dark Roast Fine Grind and whole bean, plus Moka and Decaffeinated ground coffee, all in the signature metal tin.

misceladoro-nl-iconWhen the Urbano family started roasting small batches of coffee in 1946, the guiding principle of the company 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. We have a wide range of coffees from Miscela D’Oro. Try any of the whole beans for a premium espresso experience. We have decaf in ground plus an Organic roast in whole beans and Nespresso capsules. Nespresso drinkers take note: We have 8 different roasts of Miscela D’Oro capsules for Nespresso, including 2 types of decaf.

Pellini Top is their top of the line, made with 100% Arabica beans specially roasted to deliver a smooth, full-bodied espresso, which we have in ground decaf in a sealed tin.

sant-eustachio-nl-iconSant Eustachio is known for its wood roasting of coffee beans. Based in the heart of Rome, just a few steps from the Pantheon, Sant Eustachio slowly roasts beans over slightly smoky wood in the back of the shop, followed by air-cooling. This roasting technique creates a mild coffee with a fragrant aroma. In addition to espresso, Sant Eustachio offers Moka, and Filtro coffee blends for a flavorful cup. We have options in ground and whole bean, plus Nespresso-compatible capsules in 2 package sizes.

Any one or more of these coffees bought with the discount above is steal. Use this week to stock up on some special coffees from special roasters.

How Do I Love Douwe Egberts? Let Me Count the Ways

Douwe Egberts: For Coffee Lovers

The annual celebration of love, Valentine’s Day, is later this week and will be celebrated around the world. In the Netherlands, initially the day was celebrated as a way to honor friendship by thanking someone special with flowers. Today, the day is celebrated with a card and flowers (not tulips) and perhaps even some chocolate – and, as you may already know, the Dutch do both flowers and chocolates exceptionally well!

DE-V-Day-Banner-NL
Here are a few Valentine’s Day surprises, then:

  • The day’s focus on love was first celebrated in Great Britain in the 1600’s, with the exchange of notes. Cards became popular during Victoria’s reign. (The early history of a day to honor St. Valentine is not at all romantic.)cadbury-original-valentine-heart
  •  A few countries celebrate romantic love on another day of the year. For instance, in Wales, the patron saint of lovers is celebrated on January 25th. Brazil hold Lovers Day in June.
  • In Slovenia, the celebration is in March, so February 14 is the day to work in the fields to honor St. Valentine, the patron saint of spring.
  • Giving the gift of chocolate started as a marketing plan of British manufacturer Richard Cadbury in the 1800’s.

But it should be no surprise that our favorite Dutch treat is Douwe Egberts coffee, of course. At EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have a wide range of Douwe Egberts coffees and products. This week, we’ll take 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum purchase required.*

Have You Tried Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee?

Douwe Egberts has been making instant coffees that taste and smell just like brewed coffee, but are ready in an instant. We offer the following instant roasts:

The Netherlands In The News

Man Sues To Improve Dating Chances

Crazy-Man-Sues-To-Be-YoungerA Dutch man has requested to legally changes his age from 69 to 49. As a local TV personality, he has publicly spoken many times about the impact of age on his dating prospects. After being denied the request, he sued the government, comparing the situation as similar to legally changing his name. He is confident that if he were able to say he was 49 on dating apps, he would get younger women wanting to meet him. The court has denied his request.

Beach Fire Turns Dangerous

Firenado
A New Year’s Eve bonfire on the beach in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, literally spiraled out of control, creating ‘firenados’ that moved across the sand, and caused multiple fires. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries.

Dutch Government Invests In Cyclists

bikes-rowsIn the Netherlands, there are six million more bikes than residents. The government recently announced it would invest money in the cycling infrastructure (think cyclist freeways, bike parking and storage spaces), with the goal to get 200,000 more people commuting by bike over the next three years. With more than 50% of people in the Netherlands living less than 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) from work, the distance can “easily” be covered by bike, per the project leader.

Jumping into 2019 With News From The Netherlands And A Deal

Al Het Beste Voor 2019!

The new year brings new beginnings for some, new habits to learn (or break) for others. But for a special few thousand people in the Netherlands, January 1st means an icy jump in the sea. Well, it’s more like a hard run in, with participants wearing swim suits, costumes, regular clothes, wetsuits, or very little at all.

new-year-dive-scheveningen-2019

While many cities and towns hold events that include a jump into icy waters, the really big celebration is at the beachside resort of Scheveningen in the Hague. The tradition goes back to the 1960’s, with a handful of enthusiasts having a go. Through the decades, participants increased in number, and today more than 10,000 run willingly into the frigid North Sea. A local food brand that makes sausage, noodles and soups sponsors the “run” and everyone gets a warm bowl of their split pea soup afterwards. The temps hovered around 45°F this year at the “Nieuwjaarsduik.”

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.

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.

In Other News From the Netherlands

honeybeesThe Netherlands has always been on the leading edge of sustainability and conservation, so you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that while the rest of the world’s bee population has been in decline, the honeybee population in the city of Amsterdam has risen 45% in the last 18 years. Green spaces were converted into flowering plant spaces; a ban was placed on pesticides while the community was coached on alternatives to chemicals.

tulip-seasonJanuary also is the official start of tulip season, which runs through April. National Tulip Day is Saturday, January 19th. Dutch tulip growers build a special tulip picking garden at Dam Square in the Amsterdam city center for everyone to pick free tulips.

The Dutch also offer a Postcode Lottery that has been supporting charitable efforts and groups since 1989. This year, the New Year’s Postcode Lottery’s big prize – almost 54 million Euros ($61 million USD) – went to a small village of 1100 residents near Groningen. Prize levels include winnings for the entire village, and prizes to the five homes with the specific postcode (zip code). Fifty percent of lottery revenue is donated to a variety of charities.


And, Finally…

Dutch Cookies Make Comeback

united-stroopwafelsA few years ago, United Airlines began offering stroopwafel cookies, which are thin waffles with a layer of caramel, to economy-class passengers on their flights. The cookie was openly loved by passengers on social media, and many included the tip to warm them atop the cup of coffee or tea for an even better cookie taste! Suddenly, last summer, the airline switched it out for a maple-flavored cookie on the morning domestic flights. Fliers were openly critical on social media. Well, guess what…they are back, for domestic morning flights, but only for the early morning departures.

For Lavazza, A New Year Means A New Calendar

Lavazza Annual Calendar Shows Nature As Art

Happy 2019!

For our first newsletter of the year, we are highlighting a customer favorite, Lavazza. It’s one of the best Italian coffees available. Period.

lv-2019-calendar

With Lavazza, the new year brings their very famous, very coveted and very beautiful calendar! The theme for 2019 is “Good To Earth,” a project that covered four continents, six countries and six artists’ works, all photographed by Ami Vitale, an American photojournalist. The six artists each created a nature art installation that Vitale then photographed. One example: a 16’ x 10’ painting of a beautiful water bird surrounded by mangroves is placed at a narrowing of a river, itself surrounded by mangroves. In another installation, two children peak out from under a multilevel glacier, almost as if it were a white “sheet fort” they had built. In addition to the art installation photos, Vitale also documents in pictures efforts that are good to the earth and in the same regions as each art installation.


The annual Lavazza calendar is always a big hit. So is their coffee – delicious, Italian coffee, and we have a full range of Lavazza coffee products. So for the next 2 days, get 15% off your order with no minimum required at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Lavazza In The News

Comedians in Cars Get Lavazza Coffee

lv-cicOne of the latest commercials from Lavazza shows highlights from the Jerry Seinfeld vehicle “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” all with Lavazza subtly intertwined into the shots – the making of espresso in the café, drinking coffee in the café or in the car. In fact, in the last shot of the commercial, Jerry is seen sipping Lavazza from the white and blue Lavazza-emblazoned cup and saucer while driving his red Ferrari down a country road. Luckily, a barista is able to grab the cup and saucer from Jerry just as he speeds down the road and off into the sunset.
