Germany: Passionate About Coffee

Germany, much like Italy, has played a pivotal role in the history of coffee in Europe. There were established coffeehouse in Germany as early as the 1670’s in Hamburg and Bremen, key shipping ports that ultimately brought coffee into Germany and eastern Europe. With the spread of coffeehouses over the next 50 years, women could be found frequenting the café, and even more shockingly, met and chatted with other women in the open. This was not happening in other countries, making Germany ahead of its time!

Kaffeeklatsch-German-Coffee-Banner-600px
One of Germany’s largest contributions to the long history of coffee is the humble coffee filter. That’s right, the almost-indispensable-disposable filter that keeps the grounds out of your cup and pot was created and sold by a German woman in the early 1900s. She loved drinking coffee but hated the mess of the grounds and cleaning up. At this time in coffee history, making coffee in Turkish style was common, which creates grounds in the cup. Melitta-BentzSome did try to strain the coffee through cloth, but none of it was easy. As her son would say later, she hated grounds in her cup. One morning in frustration, she grabbed a piece of blotter paper from her son’s school book sitting on the table (because writing was done with nibs dipped in ink wells). She strained the boiled coffee through the paper and an empire was born. She tested the process with friends at coffee afternoons, and eventually, she had the product patented. In the early days, the business was run out of the family home, so her two sons delivered products while her husband performed demos on how to use the product. (He eventually outsourced that job to “demonstration ladies” employed for just that.) You may have already guessed that this woman was Melitta Bentz, from Dresden. Today the company employs more than 4000 people worldwide with revenue close to $2 billion USD.

Munich and Bremen: Fun Fairs, Parades, Oompah Bands and Beverages

This week, we are highlighting two historic German coffee brands, each based in one of the above notable cities, and both extremely popular brands of coffee inside (and outside) German borders.

image6119319Dallmayr Coffee began in Munich, is headquartered there today, and is still run by family members. During the first 100 years of operation, the company supplied coffee to many royal courts of Europe.

Jacobs Coffee started as a small shop in the center of Bremen, and expanded as demand for their products grew. Today Jacobs is available in more than 20 countries, and a best-seller in shops today.

image6119448

image6119182-200-CIn Munich, the big celebration known as Oktoberfest to the world, ‘Wiesn’ in Munich, just opened festivities yesterday! Today, there is a traditional costume parade, and tents are filled with long wooden tables, some holding up to 10,000 guests.

image6119312 (1)One tent run by a local café and bakery will actually be baking pies and cakes inside the tent, which holds about 400 people, and has a band playing every evening. Be sure to get yourself a fresh pretzel when you grab a Dallmayr coffee there. Interestingly, you can make reservations in a tent to be assured of a place to sit, eat and drink.

In Bremen, the biggest celebration in this city is the Freimarkt, a celebration lasting 17 days starting in mid-October. There are more than 50 cutting-edge fair rides, lots of beer, a big parade, and regularly draws more than four million people. If you recall the story of the Bremen town musicians, then you should be amused that all around the town, you will find sculptures of the four animals. Be sure to rub the donkey’s hoof for good luck! Bremen is also known for beer (Becks Brewery is located here) and for coffee, Jacobs, of course.

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. 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.

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 Rich Tradition of German Coffee

Fact: More than 80 percent of the entire German population above the age of 14 drinks coffee. That’s even more than in the United States. Jacobs Kronung is the most popular coffee drunk by German consumers. In the top five most popular brands in Germany, Dallmayr and Tchibo are in the third and fifth spots.

German-Coffee-NL-Banner-80518

This week, Jacobs, Dallmayr and Tchibo are in our spotlight, along with these other German coffee roasters: Eilles Kaffee, IDEE Kaffee, Eduscho, and Davidoff.

We have shared the history of coffee in Germany, so you may recall that coffee houses were open to both men and women in the earliest days, back in the 17th century. Women were able to sit down inside and meet with other ladies to chat. Men grumbled, and it came to be referred to as coffee and gossip (“kaffeeklatsch”), the term well-embedded in the language by the 19th century.

Today, with family and friends, coffee is served with cake (“kaffee and kuchen klatsch”), as a late afternoon break, and on holidays and Sundays. Honey almond cake, cheesecakes, fruitcakes, and the iconic Black Forest cake are some of the most popular.

Did You Know…?

> A German woman is responsible for creating the coffee maker filter, so we have her to thank for being able to drink ground-free coffee.

> Germans drink more coffee than beer or water on average.

Hamburg-cropped> Many of the brands above are based in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany. Hamburg is a major global trading port, located on the Elbe River, in northern Germany. The city is a popular tourist destination, with major European education and research industries, cultural and artistic venues. And, of course, the Beatles were greatly influenced by, and even performed there in their early years.


Have You Tried…?

EBC-German-Coffee-Brands-NL-80518Try Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, and instant, and you’ll appreciate the distinct aroma and flavor.

IDEE Kaffee is delicious, mild coffee, with a higher caffeine content. Because of special processing, the coffee is very gentle on the stomach. We have balanced IDEE Kaffee in ground.

Dallmayr French Press Selection is an extra-coarse blend created with help from a popular French Press maker. The blend is 100% Arabica beans, with a floral and spicy aroma. We also have 3 very special blends: Neiva (spicy), Kilimanjaro (light and floral) and Granverde (nutty and soft). All are 100% Arabica beans, ground, in 8.8oz packs. We have 10 Capsa roasts capsules for the Nespresso maker, including: Prodomo (the flagship blend, strong aroma, full-bodied and smooth); Espresso Dark Roast (intense, full-bodied, with fruit and chocolate notes), and Vanillla (sweet and delicate, with a delicious aroma).

We have Jacobs Kronung coffee, the flagship roast, in instant, whole bean, and regular and decaffeinated in ground. We also have 3 new roasts from Jacobs new line of whole beans:  Jacobs Crema Intenso is a full-bodied dark roast. Jacobs Espresso is intense and velvety with spicy notes.

Davidoff Café Creation Superieure Jade instant coffee is a blend of choice Arabica beans from Colombia and Brazil, giving the coffee a pleasing body, sweet aroma, and a soft taste. Café Rich Aroma is an intense, full-bodied coffee that we have in ground and in instant coffee. Fine Aroma is mild with a delicate aroma and a soft texture and is available in ground and instant. For Nespresso makers, we have Nespresso-compatible capsules from Davidoff available in two roasts.

Made From Coffee For Coffee

coffee-cups-from-recycled-coffee-groundsA German designer and a Berlin start-up company have partnered to create reusable coffee cups from coffee grounds and wood particles. The components are combined to create a liquid that can be injection molded to create the espresso, cappuccino, and travel cups. The coffee grounds come from cafes in Berlin, and the wood is from sustainable sources. The dark, speckled cups are all dishwasher safe and durable. Prices range from $17 USD for one cup to sets of 8 espresso or 6 cappuccino cups, with saucers, for about $140 USD. The products were awarded the Red Dot Award for design just this year. Reuse, check. Recycle, check. Reduce, check.

The Brands of Tchibo In The Spotlight

Coffee Anyone?

You’ve just finished a late meal with good friends and family when coffee is brought to the table. Are you the person who is first to get a cup? Or maybe you’re the person who wouldn’t think of drinking even a sip of coffee in the evening for fear of being awake all night? Do you know someone who can drink a cup of coffee and then go to bed and sleep like a baby?

EBC-Coffees-Caffeine-Sensitivity

Well, it turns out that we each have our own sensitivity to caffeine, according to a new report published this month by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee. The report used existing research to study the way caffeine is metabolized, that is processed, by the body. Per the author, an individual’s response to caffeine is likely driven by 2 genetic factors: the speed of the liver metabolizing caffeine, and a genetic variant that makes the nervous system more sensitive to caffeine. The author, a physician, categorized three levels of caffeine sensitivity: High, Regular and Low. For those with livers that metabolize caffeine more slowly, and when caffeine binds strongly in the nervous system, even a small amount of caffeine can cause sleep problems; these people have high sensitivity. Low sensitivity to caffeine means you metabolize caffeine quickly, and you can probably drink coffee close to bedtime. For those with regular sensitivity to caffeine, you can drink 2-5 cups of coffee during the day without any issues then or at night. Some of that group may even be able to drink coffee in the evening.

coffee-DNA-cropSo how we react to coffee is part of our genetic make-up, just like the color of our hair and eyes. A few other factors affect how you metabolize caffeine, which we listed below.

Factors Affecting Caffeine Metabolism

From the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, there are various factors which influence how the body handles caffeine. Besides genetics, some liver diseases, some prescription medicines, dietary factors, alcohol and smoking affect the speed at which you metabolize caffeine.

Army Proposes Safe Caffeine Doses

Caffeine-molecule-armyA study from the Army Medical Research and Material Command in Maryland has developed an algorithm to determine when and how much caffeine an individual should consume. The research claims that the tool can help improve alertness by up to 64 percent while still consuming the same total amount of caffeine. Alertness was defined as reaction time. Researchers used sleep/wake times along with the person’s maximum allowed caffeine to produce the optimum caffeine dose schedule.
