Experience A Cup Above

Imagine George Clooney. (It’s ok to linger on that thought…)

George-Clooney-Nespresso-Banner
Now imagine him walking over to the Nespresso machine, and then serving you a perfectly prepared cup of espresso just the way you like it.

If you lived in Europe, this would be a familiar scenario, as Mr. Clooney has been the face of Nespresso for more than a decade. He is considered the brand’s ambassador, and he highlights the specialty of Nespresso coffee making, rather than himself. It turns out that Europeans have long enjoyed and purchased Nespresso coffee pods, which account for almost half of the ground coffee sales in the European market. In fact, the market for the capsules is growing much faster than the coffee market in general, as much as five times as fast per year for several years now.

americano-w-strokeBecause of the disposable capsules, Nespresso machines are often compared to Keurig machines. As it happens, the only real similarity is the single cup serving of coffee. Nespresso machines extract coffee with highly pressurized water, where the Keurig is more akin to drip coffee. Nespresso capsules are smaller than K-cups, and a large majority are recyclable. Nespresso machines make espresso, where Keurig does not. (Not sure about espresso? Make an Americano by adding another portion of water to the brewed espresso.)

Even better for consumers, many coffee brands are now making Nespresso-compatible capsules since the patents on them began expiring in 2012. So many high-end and premium brands make capsules for use in Nespresso machines. Here at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, we have several brands of European coffee in capsules:

Lavazza, Miscela D’Oro, Pellini, Davidoff, Caffe Vergnano, Kimbo, Caffe Trombetta, Movenpick, Bristot, and Dallmayr.

Several capsules are made with recycled and/or biodegradable material. Italian-based Caffe Vergnano makes capsules that are eco-friendly, and can be entirely composted and/or recycled.

Clooney appeared in the first ad for Nespresso back in 2006, where he overheard 2 women talking in glowing terms about Nespresso, though Clooney thinks they are talking about him. When he realizes his mistake, the long-used tag line was delivered: “Nespresso – what else?” If you ask us, we say nothing else compares to Nespresso machine coffee.

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.*

Lavazza: Perfection in every cup

Lavazza Coffee is a leader in Italy and around the world. When this coffee giant was founded in 1895 by Luigi Lavazza, he pursued his passion of blending great coffee, and four generations later, it is still about that passion. Lavazza continues to innovate new coffee blends, combining coffee beans from different coffee-growing regions to create premium tastes, and finds ways to improve the packaging of their coffees to preserve freshness.

We admire Lavazza coffee, and its dedication to producing true Italian coffee. In the last couple of months, Lavazza has been in the news for some of their most innovative marketing efforts. These are just a few.

lavazza-grand-slam

For the last three years, Lavazza has been the official coffee served at the U.S. Open, the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the French Open. Those four tournaments are referred to as the Grand Slam, and Lavazza is the first company to hold the honor of serving coffee (instead of tennis balls) at all four events. With only the Australian Open completed, fans are looking to the end of May for the French Open for more Grand Slam fun.

Lavazza-Sequin-Print-Cups-London-Fashion-Week-2018-300pxIn February, London Fashion Week offered the best of 2018’s fall/winter clothing and the best of coffee by serving only Lavazza. In fact, more than 200kg of Lavazza coffee kept the models and support staff buzzing this year. That’s 20,000 espressos for those of you keeping count.

Lavazza-2018-Calendar-300pxThe Lavazza 2018 calendar opens with the question: 2030, What are you doing? The calendar highlights 17 sustainable development goals from the United Nations, including both large and small efforts to help the planet, along with 17 people leading various movements with similar goals. The faces of change include Jeremy Renner, Andre Agassi, and Alexandra Cousteau (Jacques’ granddaughter), to name a few.

Dallmayr Kaffee In The Spotlight: Drink Up!

ebc-coffee-and-beer-e

A guy walks into a German bar. While this may sound like the start of a joke (and maybe it is!), but in this case, we want you to think about what you might drink after walking into a German bar.

This week, we’re talking about a great German coffee, Dallmayr. But we can’t talk about great German coffee without talking about German beer. That’s because Germany is a top consumer of both coffee and beer. Per person, in Germany, consumption of beer does not even approach consumption of coffee: 28 gallons of beer vs 43 gallons of coffee vs 40 gallons of water per year.

Coffee and beer have been around for centuries. Both have been treated as special drinks through the years, yet were banned at times, revered at other times, reserved only for the wealthy at times, and today, are considered specialty, artisanal beverages.

Hildegard-of-BingenIt’s useful to remember that beer was drunk because for much of that time, water was often contaminated. Even Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess from the 11th century, encouraged the drinking of beer for health and safety reasons. Today in Germany, more than 1300 breweries produce more than 5000 brands, more than any other country in the world!

Meanwhile, coffee proliferation contributed to the spread of a new business, coffee houses, where politicians, artists, writers, and women found company and similar-thinking neighbors and friends. Meeting there even generated a bit of gossip!

dm-restaurantDallmayr is also a key player in the bar scene of Munich, where they offer several options for bar drinks. In addition to their Café Bistro, and a Bar & Grill, they also have a Michelin-starred restaurant. And, yes, they offer beer, wine and of course their delicious coffees.


This week, in honor of National Beer Day here in the U.S. (April 7), we are offering a deal on Dallmayr that you will want to toast: Get 15% off your order of this great coffee brand with no minimum order at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com!*

Please use coupon code: DALLMAYR

*Discount valid from 4/08/2018 through 11:59PM ET on 4/10/2018 at www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Dallmayr Kaffee products. 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.

Dallmayr: The Best Coffees In the World

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 roasted at the Dallmayr production facilities in the southeast city of Geising, about a 45-minute drive from Dresden.

These are our best sellers:

DM-New-Products-Advert-NL

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.

We also have 3 very special blends back in stock: Neiva, Kilimanjaro and Granverde. All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs.

Dallmayr Neiva is grown in the coffee belt of Columbia. A single-origin coffee, this medium roast is spicy, with a fresh taste and citrus notes.

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

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

For the Nespresso maker, we have 11 Capsa roasts of capsules, including newer roasts in the Capsa line: Crema d’Oro (light, mild and balanced); Prodomo (the flagship blend, strong aroma, full-bodied and smooth); Chocolat (notes of caramel and dark chocolate in a smooth, creamy espresso), and Vanilla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma). The flavored coffees are perfect for coffee drinks (see below), but any Dallmayr coffee is great on its own (milk’s optional)!


Coffee In The News

These Coffee Drinks Are Easy and Tasty

brown-sugar-caramel-latteTry Capsa Chocolat or Vanilla as the base for this aromatic and sweet treat. Add an ounce of Kahlua, ½ ounce of brandy and a dash of cinnamon. Top with sweetened whipped cream and sit back to enjoy.

These flavored coffees also make a great Brown Sugar and Caramel Latte. Add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the prepared coffee, plus ¼ cup half-and-half, with a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. (Frothing the cream makes it even dreamier!)
