Buy “Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood Ground Coffee, 17.6-Ounce (Pack of 2) Grocery & Gourmet Food” Online
You went to a nice restaurant and had the best cup of coffee E-V-E-R. Not bitter, a little nutty hint, no bad after taste, yum! So good in fact, that you asked your server what kind of coffee it was. They gladly went to inquire and came back to tell you that it is Douwe Egberts. You couldn’t wait to get on Amazon to order your own for home use. After you brewed your first pot or cup, the disappointment set in. Why doesn’t it taste the same? Well, I’ll tell you why, because the restaurant uses a liquid form of the coffee and a machine that automatically adds hot water to it at a preset amount. I have cracked the secret though. Buy your Douwe Egberts coffee, then cold press it. If you don’t know how to do that search Google or YouTube. I made my 2nd batch by cold press and let it sit for just over 24 hours. The resulting concentrated coffee, mixed with hot water in a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio, depending on your taste, will be as close as you can get without buying the expensive machine that automatically mixes it. If you add creamer, use real cream or half & half. The powdered stuff will not taste as good. If you like your coffee cold, pouring the concentrate straight over ice is awesome. Check it out!

Douwe Egberts Aroma Rood Ground Coffee, 17.6-Ounce (Pack of 2) Review
Great coffee, but if you’re trying to match the commercially (only) available liquid concentrate, this isn’t quite it. We’re big fans of the Douwe Egberts available from "instant-flow" commercial coffee dispensers found in many restaurants around the U.S., but haven’t been able to find retail or home versions/quantities of the concentrated liquid that you can order from either the Douwe Egberts website, or other commercial coffee/food distributors’ sites (to include the frequently $3,000+ dispenser unit). So, we tried this ground blend. It’s very good, and the flavor is similar to the liquid concentrate, but if that’s what you’re looking for the same coffee that you’d get in restaurants (like we were) this isn’t quite it. We haven’t yet tried other Douwe Egberts ground blends yet, so are hoping that another one will match the concentrate. -Read Reviews-
I love Douwe Egberts coffee! It’s by far my favorite. It is smooth and full flavored. It is never bitter. I have found this coffee by accident many times in my life so now I buy it. Each time I am out having coffee and have "the best cup of coffee I’ve had in a long time" it turns out when I ask "what kind of coffee is this?" it’s always Douwe Egberts. From a hotel in Billings, Montana to a country club in Geneva, NY to a B&B in Glasgow, Scotland. I’m so glad I am able to order the Aroma Rood since it is the specific coffee I had in Scotland. It’s more expensive than the brands I find at the grocery stores but the flavor is worth it. I save it for my weekend coffee so I have the chance to drink it and enjoy it. Not drink it on the go. I highly recommend this coffee.
