Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Coffee In The News

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

Coffee In The Spotlight: Segafredo

Segafredo_imageIn Treviso, Italy, along the Adriatic Sea, Massimo Zanetti began his career as a wholesaler of green coffee. It didn’t take long for him to expand and build what would become Segafredo coffee. He began roasting, producing and distributing premium coffee. Early on, the company sold one ton of coffee per year. Today, as part of the Massimo Zanetti Beverage group, Segafredo is one of 20 international consumer brands. The group sells 120,000 tons of coffee each year.

Segafredo is one of our most popular coffees. For home preparation, Segafredo Intermezzo and Espresso Casa coffees are two of our best sellers. Intermezzo has an authentic Italian flavor thanks to its 60/40 blend of Arabica and Robusta beans. The flavor is relatively strong, with spicy notes, good structure and a full aroma. With medium crema, Intermezzo is perfect for espresso. Espresso Casa is a balanced dark roast, with good crema and also perfect for espresso. We have both roasts newly arrived, in stock, in ground and whole bean. Read on to learn more about some of our favorite Segafredo blends.

Say OUI To Our French Coffees and More!

What could be better for a coffee lover than a stroll around Paris, a city known for its café culture? Sitting at a street-side café, drinking freshly brewed coffee, of course!

The French have enjoyed coffee since the early 1700’s. The country is the home of history-rich coffee brands Carte Noire, Maison Du Café and Grand Mere. One sip of these coffees will instantly take you to that café near the Eiffel Tower, sitting at a small round table as a beret-wearing musician serenades with his accordion.

May we suggest you start your trip here with one or more of our favorite French brands:

Carte Noire, literally “black card”, began almost 35 years ago when Rene Monnier, a coffee blender and roaster whose family produced Grand Mere, started his own new coffee business. The Monniers chose the name and the black and gold packaging to reflect sophistication and elegance. Carte Noire has been marketed as “a coffee named desire”, also reflected in their commercials and other advertisements. In fact, some have described their ads as seductive! Carte Noire remains today as one of France’s most popular coffee brands. We have many roasts in our Carte Noire range, including Classic, Velours (as velvety as it sounds), and Decaffeinated. We have ground, whole beans, instant, pods, and espresso Carte Noire coffees available.

Grand Mere, started by the Monnier family, is named after a grandmother because “Grandma knows how to make a good coffee.” Just look at the package to see her smiling at you as you enjoy her coffee. Today, Grand Mere is one of the top coffee brands in France. We have ground Degustation (Tasty) and Familial (Family) roasts in 8.8oz packages.

Maison Du Café is produced by Douwe Egberts France. In France, their advertising slogan is “Each cup offers a moment of pleasure and friendship.” We have two roasts. Ma Tradition is a combination of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans, roasted in the Douwe Egberts process, which produces a fragrant and balanced medium roast coffee. L’OR Doux is soft and sweet and is 100% Arabica coffee.
