All about caffeine
This month, it is all about caffeine. With or without, a little or a lot – each Qbo Coffee is different. With the launch of our new Espresso Decaf and personal caffeine statistics in the Qbo App you find everything you ever wanted to know about caffeine and how much of it is in our coffees on our website.
New: Espresso Decaf
You love espresso on every occasion, but maybe sometimes you'd prefer it without caffeine. Well now you can really get excited by our new Espresso Decaf. This harmoniously balanced blend from the best coffee growing regions of Brazil and Colombia will seduce you with its slightly sweet, "wheaty" notes and fruity echoes. Gently decaffeinated and carefully drum-roasted, it retains the full aroma – your perfect espresso flavor experience, but without the caffeine.
Available to download – the new Qbo App
This month, not only is Espresso Decaf joining the Qbo Coffee range. The Qbo App is also continuing to develop, with a new design and an expanded range of functions.
In the new coffee statistics in Qbo World, you can now see, for example, how much caffeine you've consumed today and over the last few days. And with the new design of the drinks and machine menu, you can create, save, send and share your own coffee creations much more easily.
Q-ramisu: Tiramisu in a Qbo Glass
For the filling, stir together 250 g mascarpone and the same quantity of quark with 5 tbsp. sugar and the seeds from a vanilla pod. Whip the cream until stiff and carefully fold in. Chop around 200 g of sponge fingers into little pieces and wash and chop the berries. Line the bottoms of the Qbo Cappuccino glasses with sponge fingers and drizzle Espresso Cafezinho Ipanema over this. Then add the berries, filling and more chopped sponge in layers in the glass. (For around 6 portions)
Tip: Use an icing bag for the filling – that way, you'll get beautiful layers in the glass without splashing.
Now you can get Qbo cubes at Tchibo
Before you’re left high and dry, you should top up your Qbo stocks in good time. Now you can have whatever you need sent to your nearest Tchibo store if you’re out during the day. After all, it’s probably closer than the nearest post office.
Muesli Mogiana – it could hardly be healthier
You couldn't get more breakfast in a latte macchiato glass. Mix:
- an espresso glass of each of the following: oat flakes, Greek yoghurt, milk, coffee
- a coffee spoon of chia seeds
- the seeds from a vanilla pod, a pinch of salt, a little honey
- a spoonful of almond butter, flaked almonds
Our Alta Mogiana is the best choice of coffee for a fine, nutty note. Then just leave this healthy mixture in the fridge over night.
New recipe idea: Winter Wonderland Coffee

It keeps on getting better: our firmware update
Why not enjoy the latest firmware update? It will make your machine even more intelligent and beautiful: Not only will it show your favorite drink in the display in smart Qbo Glasses from now on. It also notes your favorite capsules for each drink and tells you even earlier if it needs something, e.g. water. And counting the capsules works fine now too. After all, no-one’s born perfect.
Baristas would stop off here
We've recently housed a few of our YOU-RISTAs in a hotel – ever since we found the right one with the me and all hotel in Düsseldorf. Because our machines feel totally at home there, thanks to the Wi-Fi hotspots in all the rooms. But the visitors and guests convinced us too. Young creative types who love the modern style and cosmopolitan concept of the hotel can now also enjoy our premium coffees there. Find out more about our new favorite hotel here.
