We have known Foodness for a long time. Several years ago we both launched functional drinks: soluble drinks at Foodness and functional infused coffee beans at Da Maestri (our Slovenian coffee roaster). Now that some time has passed and our occassional meet-ups at HostMilano have become routine (international exhibition dedicated to the world of food service and hospitality in Milan), we have officially shaken hands and decided to represent them in the Baltic countries, Finland and Sweden.
Foodness is all about the very trend of functional drinks, food, and HF* in general that has finally become not only healthy, but also more dessert-like. The line was created with an eye on the Italian market, but absorbed the benefits of traditional Maya, Viking, Chinese and the Ayurvedic medicine.
What is so special about Foodness? It is a legit thing:
- superfoods are mixed together to yield maximum benefits for the mind and for the body. For example, Golden Milk contains not only turmeric, but also black pepper. Research supports that combining the piperine in black pepper with the curcumin in turmeric enhances curcumin absorption by up to 2,000%. , , .
- superfoods are very diverse. Let alone Schisandra Chinensis in Mermaid Latte (Five-flavor berry), which is considered the strongest natural adaptogen** on the planet.
- Foodness is available for Dolce Gusto, Nespresso, and Lavazza A Modo Mio coffee makers.
- This time we imported Dolce Gusto compatible capsules only, but our manager Gabriele generously added some samples for Nespresso, as well as single-serve sachets. Nespresso is now available as a samle set of four boxes of 10 capsules. We called it "More Espresso Less Depresso". You can order it online here.
- Sachets, Foodness glass cups, as well as mugcakes are added as bonus gifts to all orders of 70 Euros and more.
The product is great. You gotta try it!
It's done! For two months we tried to get an answer on the terms of cooperation from the Estonian Post Service. And literally on July 26, 2022, they sent us a signed contract with shipping rates. Now we deliver to parcel lockers of the most extensive network in the Baltic region.
DPD works with deliveries to Finland and Sweden, while Omniva only delivers within Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
At Caffé Uno we keep shipping is free of charge. Which means that our coffee is not only authentic / Italian / functional / affordable / fast / but also very convenient😇
3. Free local delivery in Tallinn
What could be worse than having a weekend without coffee?🤔 Let me guess, a coffee order that you placed on Friday morning, yet delivery was scheduled for Monday next week. Duh...😤
For such cases, we allocate a whole day when we drive around town replenishing your stocks on the weekend eve.
⭐️If you order coffee with local delivery on Friday before 16:00 (4 pm), Eve and I will bring it to you the same day⭐️
Order to the office, home, friends, school and kindergarten (yes, we do have such clients). Because it is simply unacceptable to be left without coffee for the entire weekend!😉
4. New drinks by Gimoka
You have probably noticed that we have the most luxurious collection of Italian coffee and drinks for Dolce Gusto🥰 And it keeps growing. In July we brought two new coffees:
To give you a taste of the full range, we've added them to our flagship Assortito Grande for Dolce Gusto set, which now contains 18 blends in either a 40 capsule or a 80 capsule sets.
5. Accessories for coffee and functional drinks
We have talked a lot about the importance of coffee quality, roasting, brewing, coffee machines, and even the quality of water. Now it's time for dishes. Namely the coffee cup.
We have two types of cups in our range:
- for espresso, cappuccino and latte by Loveramics
- for functional drinks by Foodness
Loveramics offers true classics. As my Italian friend Paolo, a senior engineer at Brambati, says, "...this dish combines the three important criteria: thick ceramic walls, a rounded bottom, and a volume of 80 ml for an amazing and clean cup...".
The optimal volume of coffee liquid for an Italian espresso brewed from 7 grams of coffee while dispensed in a cup should have a vertically placed teaspoon only half immersed in the coffee liquid.
So if you are still looking for best dishes for coffee, then you will definitely like Loveramics.
Foodness focuses on serving. After all, all cups are made not only of the optimal volume for pouring coffee and herbal drinks, but also made of tempered glass. If you haven't seen the colors play in Mermaid Latte, Unicorn Latte, Matcha Latte and Golden Milk Latte, then you should definitely check it out.
Our range of Foodness dishes is on promotional offer: when ordering Foodness products for 70 Euros and more, we will give you two sets of a cup and a saucer as a gift.
6. Flash sales in Telegram and 24/7 customer support in WhatsApp
We continue to expand our social media presence. In July, we launched a special channel in Telegram, in which we publish important news, as well as flash promotions lasting for up to 24 hours. We had 20% discounts on beans and ground coffee from among tha latest flash sales. Promotions are held regularly, so subscribe - you can find some really awesome deals🏷
WhatsApp Business | How to: Shop in WhatsApp
We also added WhatsApp Business, in which we help you 24/7 with orders, deal with delivery and payment terms, answer questions about the composition of drinks and capsule compatibility.
Whatsapp Business offers a product catalog for Dolce Gusto by Gimoka. Why it is convenient: if it is inconvenient for you to access our online store you can text us and ask to duplicate the last order. Or take a look at the products in the catalog straight on WhatsApp, add them to the cart and send us in the chat window. We will place your order and send you a payment link right in the chat window🙂 Perhaps, WhatsApp Business is the fastest way to place an order with personal support.
7. New design of the web store
I will not be original - you all have already seen the webstore. We've updated it for two reasons: the speed and the ease of navigation. Now the site has a clean, bright design, new products, and supports seven (!) languages: English, Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Finnish, Swedish and Russian.
We'd love to hear your comments on what you liked and what you didn't🙂
There is a lot of news this month. But we plan to keep up the pace and continue to develop Italian drinks in Northern Europe. So see you soon on the pages of Internet portals and the Tallinn Coffee Festival🥳
Love you all,
Alex and Eve
