We Have Coffee With Style and Taste

This week, we bring you coffee brands from three European countries: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The coffees we have from brands born and based in these three countries are great examples of coffees distinctive to their regions.

From Germany, whose coffee houses allowed, even encouraged, women to openly patronize cafes decades before female suffrage, we bring you IDEE Kaffee, and Eilles Kaffee.

From Austria, home to carnival balls and weiner schnitzel (veal cutlets), we have Mozart Kaffee and Helmut Sachers Kaffee.

Finally, from Switzerland, the birthplace of fondue, cheeses, and milk chocolate, you can try Movenpick.

These premium coffees are delicious and flavorful, and because they are made for the European market, they have a slightly more intense flavor profile. With our discount this week, they are worth a good look – and taste! We’ll give you 15% off your order of Helmut Sachers, Eilles, IDEE, Movenpick, and Mozart coffees, with no minimum required.

Our Current Brand Favorites…

From IDEE Kaffee, we have a mild classic coffee made by the J.J. Darboven. Developed by scientists to eliminate any undesirable elements from the beans prior to roasting, the strict process reduces bitter flavors. IDEE Kaffee is made with 100% Arabica beans, prepared and gently roasted, which results in a mild coffee that has a higher caffeine content. It’s easy on the stomach and still tastes delicious. We have IDEE Kaffee in ground and Gold Express Instant coffee. Both are balanced and aromatic.

Eilles Kaffee, another specialty roaster, has created a distinctive and special blend of beans grown in the mountain highlands. Their coffee has unique flavors with a delicate and mellow taste and aroma. We have Eilles Kaffee Gourmet in ground, whole beans and instant.


Movenpick coffee is roasted gently and carefully using an original Swiss recipe. Der Himmlische coffee is a blend of beans cultivated in high-altitudes from around the world, giving the coffee a wonderful aroma and distinctive taste. Der Himmlische is available in ground, instant, and whole bean. Movenpick also makes capsules for the Nespresso machine, ranging from a rich Espresso Ristretto (intensity 10) to Espresso Intenso (intensity 8) to Lungo Crema (7). All of these capsules are available at our already-low prices. With the discount above, it’s a steal!

A beloved Austrian brand, named for its most famous son, Mozart, produces a coffee with an elegant composition of flavors, notes and aroma. Try Mozart Kaffee Mild, a well-balanced, delicious full-bodied coffee. We also have Mozart Kaffee Intensive coffee in ground and in instant. You’ll enjoy the powerful aroma and taste.

One of the top Austrian brands, Helmut Sachers is available in several roasts. We have Vienna Blend (fine and aromatic), Deluxe (rich and creamy, great for espresso drinks) and Espresso (rich). These roasts are available in whole beans. Café Superb is a special blend of fine beans roasted slowly, the Viennese way, creating a smoother and full-flavor coffee, and available in ground. We have three other Helmut Sachers roasts, including a decaffeinated version, and an espresso roast, all in ground.

A Note About J.J. Darboven Coffees

Four of the brands available for discount this week are part of J.J. Darboven International. For the last 150 years, J.J. Darboven has delivered high premium coffee to homes, hotels and restaurants. Darboven was one of the early coffee sellers to send packaged ground coffee to customers through the mail. The company has existed for four generations, with Darboven family members still running this international business from four roasting plants in nine countries.

Coffee In The News

Will Coffee Ground Oils Replace Palm?

coffee-grounds-oilA new process being developed by two Scottish men will process used coffee grounds into oil. Because coffee grounds are the largest amount of the waste from cafes, finding a way to keep them from landfills is a high priority. In addition, palm oil, an inexpensive, mass-produced oil used in food processing, is not a sustainable source. The Scots stated that the oil in coffee has a wide range of use, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, and household products. Their startup company is only in Scotland so far, but there are plans to expand into additional European cities.

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

Douwe Egberts: 265 Years of Expertise

de-11-citiesWhen you think of the Netherlands, do you think of ice skating on the canals? Considering that Dutch speed skaters hold the record for Olympic speed skating medals, both in combined medals, and in gold medals, it’s not surprising that skating on the canals is a national sport. More challenging is the training for one of the largest and longest canal skating races, the Elfstedentocht, which is only held in years when the weather allows for the canals to freeze. de-11-cities-2The race name means “Eleven Cities Tour” and includes a speed skating competition for elite skaters and a gentle, slower tour of the cities for everyone else. Racers go first, then the thousands (yes, thousands) of other skaters take off. The winner may finish in just 6 hours, but all finishers must complete the race by midnight. Adding to the excitement, the announcement of the race, which is completely dependent upon the weather, is made a meager 48 hours before the race is held. Strict measurements of the ice are performed; it must be almost six inches deep, then the announcement can be made, and participants and fans head to Friesland, a northern province, about 70 miles from Amsterdam.

You may not be surprised to learn that the tour, first held in 1909, has been held 1997-11-cities-2only 15 times in the intervening years, the last one was staged in 1997, and the ensuing 22 years have been the longest gap between tours in its 110-year history.

As you may have surmised, the country was yet again disappointed this year because the winter weather conditions never allowed the tour to be held. The last champion of the event, a farmer in his early 50’s, says he wants another race, and another champion of the Elfstedentocht. He says “It will happen.”

Let’s celebrate optimism and hard work this week with 15% off your order of Douwe Egberts and Senseo products at, no minimum purchase required.*

The Netherlands In The News

Vegan foods

These two stories came to our attention and set us wondering. The first is from a Dutch food producer and local grocer, Hema, who makes an iconic Dutch food, smoked sausage. The chain announced they are making a vegan version of the sausage, and eventually, want to offer vegan versions of all of their products, foods like sausage rolls and apple pie.

In more vegan news, a British man from a family of 3 generations of dairy farmers has created and is selling vegan cheese in Holland. Motivated by his own diet choices, he began experimenting with plant-based cheeses, and is now selling them at markets in Amsterdam. He stated he found the Dutch to be more open to new things, and therefore, willing to explore plant-based cheeses. His products, he said, address his own personal concerns about sustainability. And speaking of sustainability…

Coffee + Orange = Soap

soopA business collective that is dedicated to upcycling organic waste streams has created soap, both bar and liquid versions, that use coffee grounds and orange peels. Coffee grounds are a great natural scrub, with the citrus helping to boost the skin’s appearance and add a gentle fragrance. Today, a peel-recycling company supplies the oranges, which come from grocers and other stores that press fresh juice. The coffee grounds come from many sources, but the plan is to eventually collect them from offices and hotels. In case you are wondering, they clean them! The grounds and peels are treated to make them safe and to meet all Dutch regulations on soap and cosmetics.

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