    Smit & Dorlas Coffee

    While visiting Aruba last week, we had breakfast at Ricardo's twice. We had some of the best coffee and cream ever. I didn't think to ask while there, so I emailed Ricardo's asking about the coffee they serve. They emailed me back and said it is Smit & Dorlas. I wish I would have asked and purchased while on the island.

    Has anyone ordered this coffee online?

    Thanks!

    Andrea, I loved this coffee, I had it at a wedding.
    Douwe Egberts Aroma Red Ground Coffee 17.6oz/500g

    Douwe Egberts Aroma Red



    List Price: $12.99
    Our Price: $9.99

    Stock Status:In Stock
    Availability:: Usu
    I then ordered it on line and it was quite expensive and did not taste as good. I was then told I probably had the liquid D& E at the wedding, that the restaurants use. See below, not sure what that would cost!
    The finished coffee is concentrated to an incredible degree and shipped in frozen boxes to distributors, which then take them to restaurants and offices. The Douwe Egberts system machines reconstitute the coffee based on your desired brew strength inputs, infusing extremely hot water and dispensing the finished cup in a matter of moments. Maybe I shoud just stick with Merlot! LOL
