Coffee Tradition and Innovation from J.J. Darboven

IDEE Kaffee, a mild classic coffee, is the flagship product of the company. Prepared using a process developed by scientists to eliminate any undesirable elements from the beans prior to roasting, bitter flavors are reduced. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans, prepared and gently roasted, which results in a mild coffee that has a higher caffeine content. It is easy on the stomach while still tasting delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, is from Germany, and also distributed by J.J. Darboven. Created from a distinctive and special blend of beans grown in the highlands, this coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant.


From Austria, we have a coffee named after its most famous son, Mozart. Mozart Kaffee is an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee in ground and in instant. You’ll enjoy the powerful aroma and taste.

Our final Darboven brand is Movenpick from Switzerland. This coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee comes in ground and whole bean, taking high-altitude beans from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste. Movenpick also makes capsules for the Nespresso machine, ranging from a rich Espresso Ristretto (intensity 10) to Espresso Intenso (intensity 8) to Lungo Crema (7) and up to the lighter Espresso Puro (5). We even have a medium intensity Movenpick Decaffeinato. All of these capsules are available at our already-low prices. With the discount above, it’s a steal!

German Coffee In The News

Start-Up Has Grannys Baking


You read that right! A small company known as “Kuchentratsch” (cake and gossip) has opened a kitchen space to provide local cafes with the best baked goods, ones baked by a grandmother herself, or at least by a cook using her recipe. The idea, developed by a business management graduate, grew out of a desire to enjoy coffee in a café while having cake just like her grandmother makes. Using locals, the kitchen opened for business, promoting interaction among generations and a sense of community. The finished products are delivered by a group of younger staff, who manage the logistics, marketing and accounting. All grandma needs to do is bake!

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

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.


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.”

To start the new year, we are jumping in with our first Douwe Egberts deal this week! Get 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts and Senseo products at with no minimum order.*

Have You Tried These Douwe Egberts Coffees Yet?


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.

We have Douwe Egberts Black, a dark, rich coffee in ground. As one of the brand’s most popular coffees, it’s a top-seller.

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.

The discount is only available through Tuesday, so order today!

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.

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

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.


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*

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!

Must Have Coffee


Not just our first words in the morning, coffee is also a great idea for a party. Whether you have just a few guests or dozens, be sure you offer coffee to your guests. Some people (like us) love good coffee any time of the day; for others, it will be appreciated later in the evening. Offer both decaf and regular, and hot water available for instant drinks and hot cocoa.

Surround the carafes holding the liquids with different sized-cups, spoons and all the stir-ins you can find. Try simple flavors such as:

  • Small chocolate candies (kisses in many flavors; Andes)
  • Flavored syrups
  • Hot cocoa mix (add a spoonful to coffee – yum!)
  • Good instant coffee
  • Raw sugar
  • Real cream
  • Candy canes
  • Whipped cream
  • Candied orange peel
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Assorted teas
  • Flavored creamers
  • Spices: Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Lavender, Cloves (to name a few)
  • For Adults only: Kahlua, Frangelico, Chambord, Whiskey, Cognac

You can be as elaborate or as uncomplicated as you want. You may already have a lot of potential add-ins in your pantry.

Speaking of keeping things simple…

Coffee-Related Appetizers

Coffee makes a delicious BBQ sauce or rub. Serve grilled or broiled pieces of steak, chicken or pork, cut into chunks or strips, on skewers, or prepare (or buy) chicken wings, with a selection of BBQ sauces alongside for dipping.

  2. Remove from heat. Stir in black pepper, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce.
  3. Store in the refrigerator. Can be made in advance.

Holiday Traditions Across the Globe

Over the next two days, billions of people across the globe will pause their usual work and take part in a special event wherever they are. Perhaps that event is a religious church service. Or maybe it’s a particular meal with family or friends. Or maybe it’s just taking some time on your own to read or reflect.

Just as the holidays here are filled with traditional activities, so too are the cities and towns across Europe, and beyond, as people prepare for and carry out their seasonal rituals. Because has the best of European coffee made for the European market, we thought you would enjoy knowing a bit about some of the traditions of the countries that produce our most popular coffees.

Hyvää Joulua

sauna-210pxChristmas Eve starts early in Finland (it will be dark by 3pm that day), so breakfast is a traditional rice porridge and plum fruit juice. Between morning and the early evening, traditional activities include decorating the tree, taking a sauna, and visiting the graves of family members to leave a candle-lit lantern at the site.

God Jul

Christmas Eve is also very important in Sweden. The main meal that day will be a buffet served at lunchtime. There will be lots of fish: cured, smoked and pickled, and served in many different ways. Ham is special, along with turkey, roast beef, pate, salads, breads, sausages, cabbage rolls, pigs’ feet, and many potato- and cabbage-based side dishes. Pastries and cookies are served as dessert.

Frohe Weihnachten

Silent-Night-crAustrians speak a dialect of German, so “Merry Christmas” is the same in Austria, Germany and, as it happens, in Switzerland. The big holiday tradition starts on Christmas Eve, when the tree is lit for the first time, and everyone sings carols around the bright tree. “Silent Night” is the most traditional carol, perhaps because it was written in Austria in the early 1800’s.

Buon Natale

7fishes-ITIn Italy, Christmas Eve finds family and friends enjoying “The Feast of the Seven Fishes” which of course includes 7 courses of fish (think eel, smelts, clams, mussels, and shrimp, to name a few).

Frohe Weihnachten

Stollen-cropThe Christmas tree itself is a big part of the holiday celebrations in Germany. You may already know that tree decorating as a Christmas tradition began in Germany, and was brought to England by Prince Albert, who married Queen Victoria of England in the 1800’s. A traditional treat for this time of year is stollen, bread with dried fruits, nuts, spices and icing.

Joyeux Noel

Yule-Log-CropIn Provence, France, the Christmas Eve meal is followed by Thirteen Desserts. It’s most important to have 13 offerings rather than have any specific treat. Across France, though, nothing beats the popularity of the Yule Log cake. Decorated with frosting, marzipan and cream meant to look just like a log, right down to the bark and mushrooms growing alongside, the cake is adorned with red and green holly to emphasize the season.

Most importantly, the one thing that all these countries have in common is simple: Coffee is served with the meal and/or dessert.

Try any of our coffees from these countries or beyond – Look under Coffee By Type, where we have grouped coffees by country.

Go ahead, treat yourself to some fresh European coffee and use the discount above. Order now!

Have a wonderful holiday week – and next week, look for some coffee-related party tips in our newsletter!

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