While I do miss the days of free coffee on Lufthansa, I am quite thankful that the Dallmayr coffee in economy class…and the chocolate…are better than ever.
Dallmayr Coffee And Pralines In Lufthansa Economy Class From “Onboard Delights” Menu
While SAS and British Airways still manage free coffee, Lufthansa is now charging for it. But in one small sense, I am happy to accept this tradeoff, for the coffee in Lufthansa behind the curtain is suddenly as good (if not better) than the coffee in the front cabin of the aircraft. Founded in Munich in 1700, its original store is still open.
Coffee and chocolate go well together…it’s a relatively harmless excess and both bring out the flavor of the other.
Lufthansa has both on their buy-on-board menu and both the coffee and the chocolate happen to be from the same brand, Dallmayr. Dallmayr is a well-known German coffee brand that has been in operation for over 300 years.
The coffee is €3.50:
A fully aromatic coffee with a slightly nutty note, consisting of 100 % soluble Arabica coffee (250 ml). 100 % Rainforest Alliance Certified.
The chocolate pralines run €8.50:
Sweeten your flight with this selection from Dallmayr Pralinenmanufaktur: coconut, leaf brittle, passion fruit and espresso – each recipe stands for craftsmanship and first-class ingredients (40 g)
Coffee is served in a sturdy, reusable plastic cup that helped to keep it warm. The pralines were nicely partitioned in a box. I’m not a coconut fan, but the leaf brittle and especially the espresso one were quite nice.
Lufthansa also provides free chocolate (and a water bottle) on every flight, but it is milk chocolate and I greatly prefer darker chocolate.
€12 for a cup of coffee and four bites of chocolate is on the high side, but it helped to pass time and was a nice treat. I would have rendered the same positive assessment on the ground and am therefore quite happy that it appears you can count on Lufthansa now for drinkable coffee.
