The Best Of Italy – It’s Closer Than You Think!

There are a handful of delicacies in the world that you immediately associate with its country of origin: Apple pie from America; white meat sausages from Germany; syrup waffle cookies from Holland; croissants from France…well, you get the idea. This week, we are looking at Italy, and its iconic foods, in particular coffee, of course, and the coffee-flavored dessert, Tiramisu.
Italian-coffee-and-Tiramisu-400pxTiramisu, literally translated as “pick me up” or “lift me up,” is a dessert made from cake dipped in coffee, layered with whipped mascarpone cheese, sugar, and eggs, sprinkled with cocoa. You might be surprised to know that the cake’s provenance has long been in question. One of the most popular beliefs has its invention during the 1960’s at a restaurant in Treviso. Another possible origin is a World War II dessert made for soldiers to pick them up with caffeine and alcohol. It may even date back to the 17th century in Tuscany, where layered desserts were popular. Regardless of where it started, traditional tiramisu is Italy’s dessert. We have included a recipe for tiramisu below – it’s really just a trifle, a layered dessert. So enjoy!


CBe sure to order coffee to enjoy with your dessert. This week choose from the specialty Italian roasters we are highlighting: Caffe Vergnano, Bristot, Hausbrandt, illy, Miscela D’Oro, Pellini and Sant Eustachio. All of these are 10% off when you order $30 or more at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Jacobs Douwe Egberts Supports Climate Smart Agriculture

Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee In The News

In the Vietnamese Central Highlands (also known as the “Kingdom of Coffee”), the climate is perfect for coffee plants. Because of the ideal combination of rain and sun on the rich soil of these mountains, most of the country’s coffee crop is grown there, and it’s the reason Vietnam is the world’s second largest coffee exporter.

DE-Kingdom-of-Coffee-NL
DE-Sustainability-Project-crA new project to train coffee farmers in sustainable practices was just announced this month. Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) has partnered with a leading business firm based in the Netherlands that has enterprises in the agriculture, food processing, shipping, and finance industries. The three-year plan is to train Vietnamese coffee farmers in climate change resilience techniques, fertilizing, and work safety. Another agricultural solutions leader is on board too, helping the farmers meet growing product demand, especially in sourcing traceability and safety. The $1 million (USD) project will help 3000 farmers in the Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Gia Lai provinces of Vietnam. Because JDE “recognizes the various environmental and social issues that go with coffee cultivation,” it’s a great match for the farmers.

Starting with 30 demonstration plots about 1-2 hectares each, various approaches to soil and fertilizer management, crop protection products, and irrigation will be tested. The most successful techniques will be then used across 300 hectares of coffee farms. This project is similar to another initiative we shared with you in 2016, where another 3000 farmers in the Central Highlands region were similarly trained.


Douwe Egberts produces delicious and sustainably-grown coffee. This week, we are offering all our Douwe Egberts and Senseo coffees at 15% with no minimum order.*

The Netherlands In The News

Housing Complex Is World’s First

netherlands-3d-printed-homes-crNext year, the city of Eindhoven, Netherlands, will unveil the first ever 3-D-printed home. The first is expected to have three bedrooms, printed in concrete by a robotic arm. An advantage to printing the pod-like homes is the customizable components, even for natural objects found on the home’s plot. In addition, the process of building is shortened from months to weeks, and the robots will replace the need for craftsmen such as masons and carpenters. Monthly rental is set to be between $1000 and $1400 USD. As the technology improves and becomes more popular, experts predict the prices will come down to make the housing more affordable in the future.

Clever Jar Hack Puts Douwe Egberts In News

Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee In The News

A woman in Australia posted a quick coffee-drinking “hack” (think: shortcut) on a Facebook group for new moms. She showed a Douwe Egberts jar of Pure Gold Instant coffee with sugar filled in the removable lid. That way she had her coffee and her sugar conveniently in one place – spoon one of each into a mug, then add hot water. She demonstrated in pictures how to remove the top, then take the plastic cover off of the lid. Fill the glass lid with sugar, pop the plastic cover back on, and put the lid on the jar. As the Dutch say: Alstublieft! (There you have it!)

DE-Instant-Jar-Sugar-Hack-B

After posting the hack, the group was inspired! Other members posted their own ideas for the jars. They included:

–Hummus in the lid, with cut-up vegetables in the jar

–Yogurt in the lid, with chopped up fruit in the jar

–Use the lid alone for raisins or other small bites

The post also noted that the lid seals tight, so there’s no spillage with any ingredients.

We found some other great ideas for repurposing the jars too, and would love to hear your ideas too. (Tell us about your best one on our Facebook page!)

DE-Instant-Jar-Reuse-Ideas-NL

As the Viking comedian said: I just rowed in from Norway and boy, are my arms Thor!

Scandi-viking-ship-banner

If you haven’t already guessed, we are highlighting Scandinavian coffee this week. We have found that some people don’t always understand the differences between Nordic and Scandinavian, so let’s start there.

Scandinavia usually means 3 main countries: Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Finland is sometimes included in that list but is not technically Scandinavian. Refer to the countries as Nordic, and you can add Finland and Iceland to the group.

EBC-Scandinavian-Cliches-Crop
A common stereotype is that Scandinavians are blue-eye blonds. While it is true that the percentage of blondes is a bit higher, it’s a long way from being a majority. Another false idea about this region is that everyone’s house is full of IKEA furniture, as it is a Swedish-based company. There are more than 20 IKEA stores in Sweden, nine in Norway and five in Denmark. It is possible that because homes are small there, and IKEA furniture is functional, with clever storage options, you may find some in Scandinavian homes.

But there is one thing that really sets the region apart from any other area of the world: Coffee drinking. These countries drink more coffee than anywhere else in the world, even Italy and France. The Nordic people like strong, delicious filter coffee. And, they drink it all day long. We know they love coffee, they know how to roast coffee and they know how to drink coffee.


We have 3 Nordic coffee brands that will light up your taste buds: Paulig, Lofbergs Lila, and Arvid Nordquist. We will give you 15% off these iconic brands with no minimum order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: NORDIC15

*Discount valid from 6/3/2018 through 11:59PM ET on 6/5/2018 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Arvid Nordquist, Lofbergs Lila and Paulig coffees.

Can’t Decide? Read On…

Use our roast reviews to help you decide among these always-enjoyable brews.

Paulig-Advert-wDKRoast-NL-EPaulig, from Finland, roasts and packages coffee out of their facilities in Helsinki. We offer three roasts. Juhla Mokka Ground Coffee is light-roasted, rich, balanced from an intense blend of beans from South America and Africa. Presidentti Ground Coffee is a light roast (1 out of 5) from a blend of beans grown in Africa, and delivers a strong and rich coffee. Juhla Mokka Dark is a medium/dark roast with chocolate and toasted notes. These coffees are perfect examples of Finnish coffee.

Lofbergs-Advert-NLLofbergs Lila, one of the largest coffee roasters in the region, is based in Sweden. We offer three exemplary roasts: Lofbergs Lila Medium Roast is a light roast (2 out of 5) from Arabica beans, with a rich taste and aroma. Jubilee is light roasted (3 of 5) 100% Arabica beans, including beans certified by the Rainforest Alliance (an international sustainability organization we have written about before). Kharisma is dark, intense, and nutty with subtle fruit notes (4 of 5).

Arvid-Advert-NLArvid Nordquist opened a small shop in Stockholm, Sweden in 1884. Today Arvid Nordquist is a leader in premium coffee, food and wine products. We offer two roasts: Medium roast and Extra Dark roast, both prime examples of Swedish coffee roasting. In addition, they are UTZ Certified and CO2 Compensated (you can read more about these organizations on the product page). The Medium roast is balanced, with chocolate and spice notes. Extra Dark is full-bodied, and intense, with just the right amount of bitterness.

Try one, two or even more to experience the best in Nordic regional coffee. We get it directly from the area, so you are getting the real deal, just as a native would drink. As they say in Nordic country: “Je er glad i kaffe” which means “I love coffee!” The discount above will help you save.


Coffee In The News

Coffee Makes You Social

Coffee-work-tasksA new study found that people who drank a moderate amount of caffeine before a group activity were not only more alert, but better at tasks in the group. Those who had coffee before participating in an activity saw themselves and the others as more productive and more active. The study attributed the positivity of oneself and others to heightened alertness and improved performance (not a perception of improvements, but actual improvements). So, if you find yourself not liking someone you have to work with, try downing some coffee before the interaction.
