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.


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

Here’s a bit about each company and some of their best roasts.

Caffe-Trombetta-icon-nl-Crop-rectangleWhen Vittorio Trombetta began roasting and selling coffee in 1890, he chose to open his shop very 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. Word quickly spread that this shop served premium quality coffee and the shop soon filled with travelers and locals. Over the next 60 years, the company grew and gained its reputation as a producer of quality coffee, particularly espresso. Vittorio promoted his coffee using vacuum packaging, one of the first coffee companies to do so. We have ground roasts from Classico, to Gusto Forte and Gusto Pieno. We also have Caffè Trombetta Gold Bar whole beans, which makes a soft, gentle espresso with a strong aroma. We also have 3 roasts in Nespresso-compatible capsules, including a decaffeinated version.

bristot-nl-iconAt the turn of the 20th century, Domenico Bristot was living in Vienna and hanging out with a local coffee roaster, leading to a fascination with the art of blending, roasting and drinking coffee. When he returned to Italy after the Great War, he opened his own small coffee roasting business, using the new and unusual techniques he learned in Austria. He created a coffee that had an intense aroma with sweet and fruity notes, very unlike the coffee of the day. Bristot continued to search for the beans and roasting styles that would result in the perfect espresso. One hundred years later, Bristot still produces espresso and other premium blends using their high standards, cutting-edge technology, and innovation. We have a range of Bristot coffees, including whole bean and Nespresso-compatible capsules. Try Bristot Speciale Whole Beans for real Italian espresso, including intense flavor, with notes of citrus and chocolate finish. Bristot Classico is just that: a classic espresso blend of beans, rich and complex.

CAFFE-VERGNANO-nl-iconDomenico Vergnano opened a grocery store in the foothills 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. In addition to their meticulous approach to coffee selection, Caffè Vergnano also slow roasts the bean for no more than 22 minutes, then inspects for quality. Try Caffè Vergnano drip coffee with 100% Arabica beans. We have regular and decaffeinated in whole beans. We have Caffè Vergnano espresso fine grind, espresso medium grind, decaf fine grind, plus 5 roasts in whole bean, six roasts in capsules, including Decaf, for the Nespresso machine, now in compostable capsules.

Hausbrandt-nl-iconAlthough the founder of Hausbrandt was Austrian, he opened his coffee-roasting business in Trieste, Italy. Hermann Hausbrandt is known for innovation with transport and coffee storage. Hausbrandt also introduced the invention and use of the electric roaster and was one of the first to sell coffee in sealed metal containers. We have a wide selection of Hausbrandt whole bean, ground coffee, including two types of decaffeinated coffee. Try Hausbrandt Gourmet ground coffee, with spicy and citrus flavors from the delicately roasted 100% Arabica beans. Venezia Espresso in whole beans delivers a full, sweet and toasty flavor and aroma. We have Hausbrandt gift tins with beautiful artwork and special coffee blends at a super value.

misceladoro-nl-iconMiscela D’Oro is committed to sourcing the best raw coffee beans, creating blends that are then carefully and specially roasted. The technique, blending the green beans before roasting, though non-traditional, creates a full-bodied espresso with a rich, thick crema. We have a range of Miscela D’Oro espresso in ground, whole beans, and Nespresso-compatible capsules. Try whole bean or ground Espresso, in tins, at a size and price worth trying. We also have two of their organic coffees in whole bean and in capsules.

Pellini-nl-iconPellini, a family business that originally produced medicinal herbs, moved to roasting coffee in 1947 in Verona. Today, Pellini is known for high-quality, gourmet, Italian espresso. Quality is the utmost priority for Pellini, from their quality control to a tasters’ panel to achieving Kosher certification, Pellini offers some of the best Italian coffee you will ever taste. Pellini Top is their crown jewel, a special coffee made with 100% Arabica beans specially roasted to deliver a smooth, full-bodied espresso, which we have in ground and Decaffeinated ground as well. We also have 4 types of Nespresso-compatible capsules, including BIO Organic, 100% Arabica beans. BIO is also available in ground, packaged in a resealable 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, then air-cools the beans. 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.

Tiramisu Guild Rejects “Creative” Tiramisu

Creative-TiramisuThe Tiramisu World Cup, being held for only the second time in history, will award two winners this year. One award will go to the best “classic” recipe and the other to the best “creative” recipe. That creativity means adding a twist, like chilies, wasabi, beer, though organizers don’t want the recipe distorted. The Tiramisu Guild, a separate local entity that represents 50 area businesses, does not want to be involved with anything trying to change the traditional recipe. Last year, more than 700 participants vied for the one award, fifty percent from Italy, with the majority of entrants being women. This year, applications are open for 180 judges who will choose the world’s best tiramisu over four days of heavy eating, uh, competition.


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

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.


This week, get 15% off all our Nespresso-compatible capsules with no minimum order.*

Please use coupon code: CAPSULES

*Discount valid from 9/09/18 through 11:59PM ET on 9/11/18 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order for Nespresso-compatible capsules only. Offer not redeemable for cash.

Be Sure To Check Out These Capsules

EBC-Brands-Nespresso-Capsules

You’ll find all our capsules under Coffee By Type, Capsules, and from there, select Nespresso Capsules.

From Italy, we have Lavazza capsules in four roasts, including decaf; Kimbo in three roasts, and Pellini in four roasts, including one made from organically cultivated coffee beans. We also have organic roasts from Miscela D’Oro, Organic Purezza, and from Bristot with their BIO Organic capsules.

We have several roasts from Miscela D’Oro in capsules, and many of them are promotionally priced. Miscela D’Oro is a company that is growing, so expect to see more from them. Best of all, the discount is valid on those already-low prices too.

A new range of capsules from Caffe Trombetta, another Italian coffee brand, is now available, with great prices and also available for the discount above.

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.*
