Get Ready For Koningsdag With Douwe Egberts

From Princess, to Queen, to King

What started as a day to honor a princess in the 1800’s turned into a day to honor the Queen of the Netherlands at the end of the century. In the 1900’s, the date changed, but the party remained the same: Honoring the previous Queen (Wilhelmina) and the then-current Queen (Beatrix). Today, with a minor date change (now April 27), the party is for the King’s birthday. King Willem-Alexander turns 51 years young this month, and the entire Netherlands will be celebrating! In Amsterdam, imagine a city-wide open-air festival, with almost 1 million people arriving to party hard!

DE-KingsDay-2018-Banner-NLIn Dutch, it’s known as Koningsdag. The night before, revelers fill the streets while others prepare their spot for their belongings for the national “freemarket” in the morning. People spread a blanket, offering trinkets and goods (think yard sale) along every street, corner and canal. Everyone is wearing orange, the national color, in honor of the House of Orange, the Dutch monarchy’s lineage. Musical performances are found in every park and plein (square) across the country. The canals are filled with smaller boats of raucous partiers, drinking beer from plastic cups, if the weather cooperates, that is. The 1500 bridges that cross the various canals are also lined with spectators wanting to see the boats. Traffic is restricted, most businesses are closed, so the streets are filled with people.

Koningsdag-King-Willem-Alexander-CrThe royal family always visits a town or two on King’s Day, and participates in the good-natured fun, drinking and eating. This year, the family plans to be in Groningen, a city in the northern part of the Netherlands.

By 8pm, the parties move indoors to the pubs and clubs, at least for those still able to continue on.

The party isn’t just in the Netherlands, either. We have some information about Dutch King’s Day celebrations in the U.S. further down below.


You too can celebrate King’s Day, well, like a king, by drinking Douwe Egberts (before the beer), and saving 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts.*

King’s Day: Not Just In The Netherlands Anymore

murphy-windmillThis year, the largest Orange Party in southern California happens in Los Angeles, at the Shoreline Aquatic Park in Long Beach. Similar to the Amsterdam party, there will be Dutch food vendors, live music, a flea-market, photo stations, and of course, Heineken beer. Since it is LA, everyone is in fashionable and spectacular orange ensembles. Be there on Sunday, April 29.

If you find yourself in northern California over King’s Day weekend, be sure to stop by Golden Gate Park on Saturday. The Murphy Windmill is scheduled to be turned on, and that in itself is a rare occasion. The party will include music, Dutch food trucks (snacks, pancakes, pea soup, sausage and herring), a group bike ride, children’s toy exchange, Heineken beer and activities for everyone. Look for lots of orange hair, orange shirts and orange streamers.


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

Fresh Douwe Egberts Coffee: Just Off The Boat!

The Netherlands is the home to this iconic brand, and we enjoy writing about this unique country. We especially like to highlight sights to see on a visit and other things that make this area special.

So how about a trip to the floating flower market in the largest city of the region? The Amsterdam Flower Market is the only floating flower market in the world, smells wonderful and is open all year round! The market has been there since 1862, right on the Singel canal, when boats were used to deliver the flowers to the vendors.

While the market is one of the main flower suppliers in town, the souvenir shops alongside also draw a crowd. The flower market is open every day of the week.

Holland or Netherlands? Both Know Coffee!

[Another in our series on great coffee places.]

Recently, we heard some people talking about visiting Holland. After hearing more, we realized what they really meant was that they were traveling to the Netherlands.

Some people refer to the country of the Netherlands as “Holland” but that is not accurate.

Holland, to the Dutch, refers to the 2 provinces of North- and South-Holland (highlighted in orange, the country color). The Kingdom of the Netherlands is comprised of 12 provinces, and refers to the entire nation. Although they are used interchangeably, now you know which is which.

We enjoy writing about the Netherlands, because that is where Douwe Egberts began and still exists there more than 260 years later.

We know you enjoy Douwe Egberts too, so we are offering 10% off all our Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum order. at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*

Please use coupon code: DEMAR10

*Discount valid through 11:59 pm PST 3/21/17 at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com for Douwe Egberts and Senseo brand coffee with no minimum order. Not valid with other coupons or discounts, special sale or case sale Douwe Egberts and Senseo products.

PS – The shipment we just received of Douwe Egberts coffee includes a new roast in ground:  Douwe Egberts Dessert coffee in 8.8oz/250g packages. This well-balanced blend is mild, good for drinking anytime, not just for dessert! Be one of our first customers to tell us about it! Order today.
