Amazing Brands. Amazing Coffee.

This week, we spotlight 3 of our premium Italian brands:

big-italian-icons-cv-lv-hs-nl

trieste-port-itlAs coffee made its way into Europe through Italy, the busy port city of Trieste was vital in this regard. The founder of Hausbrandt was Austrian, yet he chose to open his coffee roasting business in Trieste. Hermann Hausbrandt, a merchant marine, is known for his innovation with transport and storage of coffee to keep it fresh. Hausbrandt also introduced the invention and use of the electric roaster right in their coffee shop, and was one of the first companies at the time to sell coffee in sealed metal containers.

Another coffee leader from Italy is Lavazza Coffee. When this coffee business was founded in 1895 by Luigi Lavazza, he pursued his passion of blending great coffee, and four generations later, it is still about that passion. Based in Turin, in the northwestern part of the country, Lavazza blends and creates the highest-quality Italian espresso. Lavazza continues to innovate new coffee blends, combining coffee beans from different regions to create premium tastes, and is always improving the packaging of their coffees to preserve freshness.

Turin-Foothills

Caffè Vergnano is one of the top Italian coffee companies, and can be found in more than 80 countries. Since Domenico Vergnano opened a grocery store in the foothills surrounding Turin more than 130 years ago, the beans have been meticulously selected and slowly roasted for the best flavor. Caffè Vergnano slow roasts the bean for no longer than 22 minutes, then inspects for quality.

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.

We Have Imported Italian Coffee Just Like Italians Drink Everyday!

itl-villa-plus-castle
If you have ever considered moving to Italy, because let’s face it, they have great coffee there, then you should investigate the small Italian villages looking to attract new residents. Several towns and villages in the country are offering homes for one Euro ($1.10 USD); some are even offering to pay a stipend if you do buy there. The catch is that the homes are abandoned, often dilapidated, needing work and improvements, so while you may get the house cheaply, you are obligated to complete planned repairs within a few years. In some cases, the buyer must open a small business, and there is usually a non-refundable deposit.

itl-villa-interior-staircaseInterestingly, many of these villages are historical centers showcasing architecture, archeological ruins, cave and underground chamber living, wine harvesting, mountain-side and seaside areas, and even featuring centuries-old stone houses at the base of a castle. Even more interesting for the Italians already living there, it turns out that these inexpensive homes have attracted Europeans and Americans, who are buying and renovating. Almost ten percent of Italy’s population consists of people from other countries.

Small villages in the country have increasingly fewer residents, as people have slowly abandoned the areas to move to larger towns for work. In addition, Italy’s birth rate has drastically fallen, with 2018 registering as the lowest on record ever.

Burglary Spree Made Him Thirsty

Coffee-Police-LineIn a suburb of Atlanta, a block of businesses were broken into and plundered during several hours overnight one day last week. The intruder was spotted on surveillance cameras, and is accused of taking computers, tvs, sports memorabilia, and food. He tried but was unsuccessful in making a cup of coffee at one of his stops, so he grabbed the coffee itself and took that instead. Police released video images asking for the public’s help in identifying the perp.

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!
