Sustainable Coffee at Enjoy Better Coffee

Earth Day By The Numbers

Earth Day began as an idea for a national day to focus on the environment. A U.S. Senator from Wisconsin founded the day, after seeing the devastation of a massive oil spill in California the previous year. Promoting the day as a “teach in” and after reviewing college schedules to determine the best time (between Spring break and final exams), April 22 was selected. Here’s a quick tally of some key numbers relating to Earth Day.

Sustainable Coffees: Now Grouped On Our Site

EBC-Sustainable-Coffee
You asked to be able to see our sustainable products together, and now you can by selecting Coffee By Type, Sustainable Products to see what delicious coffees you can choose. We also have them grouped along the side by the type of sustainable certification. Here’s some we enjoy:

Lavazza Gran Selezione is Rainforest Alliance Certified, with 100% Arabica coffee beans, intense and full-bodied, with chocolate notes. The medium grind of this ground coffee makes it right for most coffee makers.

All of our illy products are certified by an organization that promotes a Responsible Supply Chain Process, a testament to the quality of illy’s supplier relationships. We have decaf, fine grind (for espresso), Moka grind for Moka pots, and whole beans. The espresso is perfect Italian style, which makes drinking illy a real treat.

UTZ Certification, at a high-level, is a program that is focused on good agricultural practices, farm management and the environmental impacts. The Certification is the largest program for sustainable farming of coffee in the world. Coffee farmers and coffee producers each have their own specifications to meet for certification. We carry a range of UTZ Certified products from Douwe Egberts, Dallmayr, Arvid Nordquist and Maison Du Cafe.

Caffe Vergnano’s Nespresso-Compatible capsules are now compostable, that’s right, the capsules are 100% biodegradable. All five roasts are delicious, convenient and earth-friendly.

Coffee In The News

Coffee Bean Tea In A Bottle

cascara-tea-200pxCascara, the dried skin of a coffee bean, has long been discarded as waste in the processing of the bean. We have mentioned the use of the cascara to enhance drinks, but now, a company is bottling a tea made from the husks.

Considered a superfood, the cascara skin is all antioxidants, polyphenols (for immunity), and caffeine. The tea is in four flavors, including sweetened original. The company behind the tea makes cold brew coffees, and sees their products as minimizing waste, supporting sustainable coffee farmers, and offering additional opportunities for local farmers.

Technology Delivers Clear Coffee

Touted as the “first colorless coffee drink in the world,” the makers of the product use technology and high-quality ingredients to produce a clear caffeinated liquid that has no preservatives, artificial flavors, sugar or other sweeteners. Taste testers describe it as “drinkable” with a “cheap wine” aftertaste. The drink is only available in the United Kingdom right now, but the makers are planning to expand to the U.S.

Four Coffee Trends For 2018 (And A Sale!)

Just a couple of weeks ago, we wrote about current food trends in general, and one of the top five is cold brew coffee. This week, we focus on the coffee-specific trends this year.

First, let’s talk coffee shakes. While some of us like the acid and bitter flavors of black coffee, not everyone does. Some, especially younger drinkers, prefer sweet, creamy coffee drinks. Blend coffee with milk, vanilla, sugar, ice, and flavored syrup to enjoy this decadent treat.
Coffee-Shakes-Banner

Cafe-Au-Lait-Bowls-CR-250px

Next up: Ready to drink coffee, such as bottles and cans of frappuccinos, or cold brews that are easy and convenient to carry and drink. Many are already sweetened, so it’s another type of sugary treat.

Our third trend is about appearance over function. Café au Lait bowls, that is coffee with milk served in and drunk from small bowls, often decorated with unique and artistic designs.

Our last trend this week is a favorite of ours, gourmet coffee. This term refers to higher-quality coffee, perhaps single origin beans or carefully selected blends from all over the coffee-growing world. Think artisan, special roasts, organic, and beans grown in special regions (for example, high in the mountains, or on the slopes of a volcano).

Coffee-PlantationCR-650px

At Enjoy Better Coffee, we have the best of the best of European coffees. We have coffee from Germany, France, Holland, Italy, Austria, and the Nordic countries. Here is a small sample of the special coffees we have:

Coffee roasted over wood from Italian producer Sant Eustachio

Beans grown at the foot of Kilimanjaro are used for German Dallmayr Kilimanjaro, a balanced coffee with floral notes

Beans selected especially because of their unique qualities as in Eilles Kaffee Gourmet coffee

Beans selected and roasted to create a mild coffee as with Italy’s Segafredo Espresso Mild, German Tchibo Feine Milde, Swiss-based Davidoff Café Fine Aroma, and Austria’s Mozart Kaffee Mild, to name a few


Don’t wait…Get in on the gourmet coffee at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com and for the next few days, we’ll give you 10% off your order of $30 or more.*

Secrets Of A Long Life (Hint: It Includes Coffee!)

According to a new study, drinking coffee and beer every day leads to a decreased likelihood of premature death. Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, were looking for common elements in the lives of those over the age of 90. The team spent the past 15 years surveying more than 14,000 people in their 90’s about diet, activities, medical history, and medications, then followed up every six months to perform neurological tests. They found that two daily cups of coffee and beer, along with exercise and hobbies, led to a longer life. If your hobbies are drinking coffee and beer, it has to be even better, right?

Wake Up and Smell The Makeup

Coffee-MakeupA cosmetic company has created lipsticks, eyeshadows and bronzers, all with a delicious coffee scent. We are told the aroma of the makeup is subtle, much like you might experience walking past a hot cup of coffee. Apparently, the team behind the cosmetics is comprised of coffee lovers, so they were compelled to release this new line. The palette is only neutral tones, while the bronzers come in two shades: Latte and Mocha.

Cool Beans Help To Relax

A spa based in a Chicago hotel is now offering this refreshing start to the day.

coffee-scrub-300pxThe three-part package delivers an espresso body scrub, a full-body massage, and a shot of espresso. It’s gonna be a good day!

The scrub is a mixture of espresso beans, honey and essential oils, so you can enjoy the great aroma of coffee while exfoliating the skin. The aesthetician will then use a warm towel to remove the mixture, leaving your pores open and ready for the massage. The Swedish-style massage is relaxing and calming, but even better, as it comes to an end, and you must prepare to enter the real world, you get to enjoy a shot of espresso. Now, you’re ready to start the day. This little treat for yourself will run you $210 and up, before tip.


We offer many brands of espresso, drip coffee, pods and capsules of delicious, European coffee, and you can make your own scrub, and your own espresso shot, for a lot less than going to Chicago. In fact, we want you to love our coffee as much as we do, so we are giving you 10% off your order of $30 or more at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

European Coffee Specialties

Austria: In a lovely Viennese café, the drink to order is a Wiener Melange. It’s espresso with steamed milk and light foam, and is delicious with any torte you might try.

France: In Paris, try the Café Crème, an espresso drink with a lot of steamed milk, so it is most like a cappuccino, something the French don’t usually order.

Ireland: Of course it has to be Irish coffee! Hot coffee, Irish whiskey, brown sugar and whipped cream make this a cold-weather treat. If you like this drink, you can get a rum version, but you’ll have to visit northern Germany.

European-coffee-examples-nl-edit

Italy: Espresso is the standard coffee drink, but you should only drink it with milk in the morning there. (Italians believe that milk affects the digestive system when drunk after morning.) Italians like a sweet pastry with their espresso, stuffed with custard, marmalade, or Nutella.

Sweden and Finland: Fika (mid-morning and late-afternoon coffee breaks), always better with friends, means a coffee with a bun or roll. Try a cardamom-style kardemummabullar or a heavily-iced cinnamon roll known as a kanelbulle.

Enjoy Better Coffee has coffee brands from all these countries. We think you should go European style, and the discount above makes it even easier to enjoy a “European holiday.”

Cold Brew In Top 5 Popular Foods for 2017

Cold brew coffee and its popularity have increased rapidly since 2016, per Google Trends’ Beverage report. Want to try a fancy barista-style cold brew? Simply start with high-quality beans (we have plenty from which to choose). Grind the beans semi-coarse. Stir ¾ cup grounds with 4 cups of water, and put in the fridge for 6-24 hours. Strain in a sieve lined with a coffee filter. To make a cup, use one-part concentrate with 2 parts water, or to taste. Enjoy! Btw, the other top items in the food category for 2017: Zoodles (zucchini noodles); ketogenic foods (based on a newer popular diet); riced veggies (think cauliflower, sweet potato and broccoli); and poke bowls (a deconstructed sushi roll in a bowl, with rice or noodles, vegetables, and sauce).

Forget Butter; There’s Egg In My Capp

K-Cappuccino-w-Egg-Yolk-200pxThis trend, from South Korea, involves straining out the egg white, then dropping the yolk in a cup of espresso and whisked. Top with heavy cream, cocoa powder and serve! Someone described it as drinking espresso “Rocky” style. Apparently the heat from the coffee kills the bacteria from the raw egg.

Italian Espresso: North vs South

This week, we have two of our best Italian coffees in the spotlight: Hausbrandt and Kimbo

Kimbo-Hausbrandt-Banner-Light-300pxTogether, these two brands, from opposite sides of the country, showcase true Italian coffee. Hausbrandt is from northern Italy, in Trieste, while Kimbo is based in the southern part of the country, out of Naples. In every part of Italy, people drink coffee all day, often standing up at a coffee bar, alongside a glass of water, meant to cleanse the palate pre-drink.

When we think about the origins of coffee, many great European cities were thriving centers for coffee production. In the ancient southern city of Naples, coffee has always held a special place in Italian hearts. Neapolitans have long roasted their own coffee, either at home or from a vendor cart.
naples_coffee_with_lemons-200pxOrdering an espresso in a bar (a coffee bar, that is) will usually include a twist of lemon peel alongside, a popular citrus fruit in that part of Italy. In fact, in the south, food is simple, fresh and a little spicy. Perhaps it is the warm sea breezes, sunny weather, and a later start to the day, but southern roasts are darker, full-bodied with a heavier mouth-feel.

Up north, Trieste is an historical center of the coffee industry in Europe, one of the most important for the last few centuries. It was here that coffee was delivered for processing, and encouraging small shops and cafes to open along the waterfront and neighborhoods. Here, espresso is traditionally a bit lighter, with a more delicate taste, with little acid. Sweetness and smoothness are key factors in coffee from the north.


We enjoy both these coffee brands, and we know you will too. This week, get 15% off your order of Kimbo and Hausbrandt products at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with no minimum order required.*

Please use coupon code KIMHAUS15

*Discount valid from 1/28/18 through 11:59PM ET on 1/30/18 at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com with 15% off no minimum order required on Kimbo and Hausbrandt products. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale products.

Coffee Drinks In Italy

Itailian-Coffees-Chart2-NL

Here are the go-to coffee drinks in Italy. We’ve included our suggestions for roasts from our two featured Italian brands to make the perfect cup.

Un Caffe is an espresso. Hausbrandt Espresso ground is 100% Arabica beans, with a sweet flavor, medium body and floral aroma notes. Kimbo Napoletano ground is made with Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, roasted to extract an intense flavor and rich aroma.

Cappuccino is espresso topped with hot, foamy milk. Try Hausbrandt Espresso Rossa ground coffee for a sweet and aromatic cappuccino. Kimbo Antica Tradizione ground is a classic espresso; with milk, the creamy drink is smooth.

Caffe Latte in Italy is usually served with a tall glass of heated milk. Made of 1/3 espresso and 2/3 heated milk, this creamy coffee, just as with cappuccino, is only ordered by Italians before lunch. Hausbrandt Superbar whole bean coffee has a superb aroma with toast notes, while hints of cocoa and liquorice linger. Kimbo Aroma Gold ground is 100% Arabica coffee, so it has a rich aroma and flavor with a smooth finish.

Caffe Americano is espresso with additional hot water added. Hausbrandt Nero Espresso ground is sweet, with floral aroma notes. Kimbo Superior Blend in whole bean is sweet and smooth.

Macchiato, meaning “stained,” is an espresso with a teaspoon or so of foamed milk on top, and is the one coffee drink with milk that Italians will drink any time of day. Hausbrandt Oro Espresso ground coffee has a nutty flavor and an excellent deep brown crema. Kimbo Extra Cream in whole beans is considered one of the best of the southern Italian espressos.

These coffees and these drinks will immediately transport you to a sunlit Italian piazza. Try one, two or more with the discount above, which is only available through Tuesday.

Teen vs Council in Australia; Bureaucracy Wins

Fifteen year-old Dante Valentinis, a high school student living in Newcastle, South Wales, is considered by many to be a self-starter. He’s run a vegetable and fruit business from his backyard, walked dogs and bred chickens to make money. With his father’s help, he found a discarded kitchen cabinet, refurbished it into a cart, added a fridge, a water heater, sinks, a hot plate and a generator. He and 3 staff (friends and family) got matching uniforms and set up the coffee cart at a local beach on the weekends. Unfortunately, the business, known as D’oro the Exploro, was forced to close by the Newcastle City Council. While claiming to support the lad’s initiative and entrepreneurship, they stated Dante must be required to follow the same steps and processes for approval that anyone with a mobile food van has to complete. Plans for his business were developed last year with his teachers in high school. No surprise that Dante has already started the process and plans to jump through the council’s hoops.
