Meanwhile, In Italy…

This time of year, Italians anxiously await several seasonal events. There are festivals for saints, a jazz festival, a film festival, but the 2 most important food-related fests are the Truffle Festivals and the annual return of roasted chestnuts.

Chestnuts are considered a fall fruit in Italy, and have been grown in the area for centuries, with some chestnut trees honored as state monuments. Being low fat and high fiber, these vitamin-filled nuggets of flavor helped many Italians, especially those without access to farmland, to survive winters. Today, you will find street vendors roasting and selling chestnuts across the country, then serving them in paper cones. It’s a sure sign that winter, and the winter holidays, are coming.

From street gourmet to culinary gourmet, here’s a look at the various Truffle festivals held across the country in November. Many towns celebrate the fungus, which looks similar to a mushroom but has a mild garlic and earthy flavor, and just happens to deliciously complement Italian cuisine. The largest gathering is the Alba International White Truffle Festival. Also eagerly anticipated are the truffles available for sale. In 2018, two pounds of Alba truffles sold for the equivalent of $85,000 USD. Parma and San Miniato are other towns that have large gatherings in honor of the precious truffle.

sant-eustachio-nl-icon

In the heart of Rome, just a few steps from the Pantheon, Sant Eustachio slow roasts beans over wood in the back of the shop. This roasting technique creates a mild coffee with a fragrant aroma. Try the Sant Eustachio Filtro and Sant Eustachio Moka, in ground, or the Nespresso-compatible capsules. You’ll really save with the discount above.

Illy-nl-icon-edit

With origins in Trieste, illy coffee is always rich and full-bodied with a velvety texture. Try the Medium Roast Fine Grind Espresso, Dark Roast Fine Ground Espresso, Moka, and Decaffeinated, in ground or, whole beans Blend Classico Medium Roast and Intenso Bold Roast.

In The Spotlight: Kimbo

kimbo

Based in Naples, in the south of Italy, Kimbo has produced premium coffee for more than 50 years. We have a wide range of Kimbo coffees, including several signature espresso-ready roasts, available in ground, whole beans, and capsules.

Our popular roasts include Kimbo Antica Tradizione in ground, which is the original rich and flavorful Kimbo blend; Kimbo Espresso Napoletano in ground, roasted and prepared using the Neapolitan tradition; and Kimbo Premium Espresso Bar in whole beans, which creates an intense espresso drink.

Just in, soon-to-be favorites: Kimbo Crema Suprema Espresso (balanced, perfect espresso); Kimbo Dolce Crema Espresso (light roast, smooth and velvety); Kimbo Crema Intensa Espresso (medium, full-flavor).

For Nespresso connoisseurs, try these from Kimbo: Delicate Armonia, medium, balanced Napoli, medium/dark toasty Lungo, and full-flavored Intenso. Kimbo BIO Organic capsules are a medium roast, with organic Arabica beans.

The founder was a merchant marine, eventually opening a coffee roasting business in Italy. His innovations revolutionized packaging, storage, and transport of fresh coffee in proper containers made for long hauls. We offer Caffe Hausbrandt roasts in whole beans. On the delicate side, there’s Gourmet Columbus, a balanced coffee, and Gourmet, spicy and citrusy. Academia Espresso is a single origin medium roast, smooth with fruit notes. The more intense roasts include Trieste Espresso, full-bodied, with toast notes; Classic Espresso, from Robusta beans and is full-bodied, and H. Hausbrandt, a sweet, spicy, nutty roast.

trombetta

When Vittorio Trombetta began roasting and selling Caffe Trombetta coffee in 1890, he opened his shop near the main terminal of the train station in Rome. Over the next 60 years, the company grew and gained its current reputation as a producer of quality coffee, particularly espresso. Try Nespresso-compatible capsules available in 3 roasts: Arabica (balanced), Crema (creamy), and Organic BIO (100% Organic beans).


Coming Soon…

There are plenty of things to look forward to this month and beyond, and a few of them might well come from us. We are making some exciting changes at EnjoyBetterCoffee.com, and can’t wait share the all the details with you, our valued customers. And, as always…

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

“The smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the world’s greatest inventions.”

We agree! Around here, somebody’s always brewing a cup throughout the day, and nothing smells or tastes better than a freshly brewed cup of good coffee. We also know that more people than ever are making and drinking coffee at home – almost 80 percent of Americans in a recent industry survey said they had drunk coffee at home the previous day.

morning-coffee

Speaking of drinking coffee, would you be surprised to know that $40 billion dollars is spent on coffee per year by consumers? It is the second most-traded commodity after oil.

drinking-coffeeOn average, people in their 20’s start drinking more coffee, as much as 25 percent more. Americans over 60 drink the most coffee, while 37 percent of teens said they drink coffee. Almost half of millennials described the previous day’s cup of coffee as gourmet. In fact, according to the survey, more than half of Americans are specifically choosing gourmet and premium coffees as daily drinks.


Luckily for you, we have delicious premium and special gourmet coffees, made for the European market, so the flavor profile of the coffee is slightly stronger and more intense than American market coffee. We have all the historic European brands, plus several smaller-production roasters. Even better, this week, you can try a new coffee or stock up on your favorites, and we’ll give you 15% off your order of $30 or more.*

The Best Time To Visit Europe

Fall is the best time to visit Europe for several reasons. For one, tourist season has ended, so less traffic by car and on foot. Also, the heat of summer has led to cooler days (and you may recall, this past summer was one of the hottest on record). Most importantly, air fare is much lower in the fall. Consider these locations:

rome-in-autumn

Rome, Italy. You may have seen in the news that the city government has imposed new regulations on visits to their monuments because of issues with too many tourists. During the fall months, the city returns to its normal pace of local life. Plus, the weather tends to be sunny during the day and chilly at night. We have several brands that offer classic Italian espresso and more, including our huge range of Lavazza, illy’s espresso, exclusive wood-roasted Sant Eustachio, authentic Segafredo, in ground and whole bean options. Several of these brands also come in capsules for Nespresso machines, or pods for espresso machines. You can find these directly by selecting Coffee By Type on our site, and choosing capsules or pods, whichever works in your machine.

paris-fallParis, France. No hordes of tourists, street-side cafes still set up tables and chairs – ask for a blanket if you get chilly – and for a short drive outside the city, you can experience the colors of autumn in a national forest. Capture the flavor of the city of lights with Carte Noire coffee, with its intense and unique aroma, and its classic taste.

Berlin, Germany. The city is easy to walk, especially with fewer tourists, and buildings and other colorful street art make wandering the city a worthwhile endeavor. While it can be chilly, you can warm up with comforting wursts and schnitzel, and follow with one of several iconic German coffee brands. We have you covered there with a wide range of Jacobs, Tchibo and Dallmayr coffees. Be sure to check out specialty roasters, Eilles and Eduscho, too.

The discount is only available for a few days, so order now.

Today Is International Coffee Day

International-coffee-day-banner-2019In the United States, International Coffee Day is September 29, 2019, celebrating coffee as the delicious beverage it is. In other parts of the world, National Coffee Day (as it is sometimes called) has most countries celebrating either today or October 1. In 2015, the International Coffee Organization officially designated the day, in Milan, Italy, as a way to promote fair trade coffee and raise awareness of the coffee growers and their challenges bringing their coffee to market. Prior to that, though, other National Coffee Days were marked in various countries. As far back as 1983, Japan began an annual day celebrating coffee; in the USA, it began in 2005, with other countries joining in with their own national day to celebrate this popular beverage. If you didn’t get a Coffee Day greeting card yet, consider this your first! Happy International Coffee Day! Use the discount above to celebrate with all your favorite brews. Don’t wait – this offer expires soon.


Coffee In The News

Most Americans Brew At Home

drip-coffeeResearch found that 89 percent of Americans make their coffee at home, noting that the convenience and cost-savings over a café pickup are fueling the numbers. Using data from 1000 people polled, there were a few other surprises. For instance, only 20 percent drink their coffee black. Two-thirds want to be able to recreate their favorite coffee shop drinks at home, but only one-third think they do it well (rating themselves an “A”). One last disclosure – almost two-thirds of respondents said making coffee was “therapeutic” for them. We say the discount above will help you with some in-home therapy, so order today!

Italian Espresso and More Reasons To Love Coffee

If French is the language of love, then Italian is the language of coffee! The reason? Espresso, born in Italy, is the basis of all Italian-named coffee drinks. From cappuccino to macchiato to latte, they all start with espresso! Let’s take a look at this key component of Italian coffee.
DK-Espresso-Banner
Espresso is a very concentrated shot of coffee that results from forcing nearly-boiling water through finely ground coffee. Early espresso machines used steam pressure to force the water through the grounds. Today there are many different methods of extracting espresso, from manual and automatic machines to stovetop espresso makers.

esp-dripAs the water blasts through the coffee, all the flavor, oils, sugars and proteins are released and dissolved in the liquid. The resulting mixture, while small in volume, is slightly thick, with a very strong, rich flavor. Gently resting on top is the crema (foam), which many experts say indicates the quality of the espresso. Traditionally, espresso is served in a small, porcelain cup, alone or with any number of add-ins and toppings: cream, liquor, warm milk, chocolate – the list is long, just pick your favorite. The extracted shot can also be used in many other coffee drinks, as mentioned above.

We have a huge selection of espresso beans, ground espresso and even decaffeinated espresso. And, we have these Italian coffees in roasts that can prepared in a regular coffee maker. The options are endless! Even better, our prices make it easy to espresso yourself!

Italian Espresso

esp-socialize-wpEspresso became popular in the first half of the 20th century in Italy with the development of machines specially built to make coffee. Espresso bars became a place to meet and socialize.
