隨著近幾年興起的第三波精品咖啡文化,有越來越多的人鍾情『單品咖啡』。所謂的『單品咖啡』指的是來自單一產區咖啡果實所加工而成的咖啡豆,不經由過度的烘培,而是採中淺程度的烘培法,原汁原味地呈現咖啡果實(coffee cherry)最真實的風土味覺。

而手沖咖啡 (pour over)的沖煮方式是一個德國的家庭主婦Bentz Melitta時發明的,這幾些年來在日本蓬勃發展。小編私心的覺得手沖咖啡是呈現單品咖啡原始風貌的最佳沖煮法。它的沖煮方式單純,卻可以直接的襯托出咖啡豆最原始的風味。
一杯好的手沖單品咖啡要怎樣品嚐出它不同的風味與滋味呢?

  • 研磨新鮮的咖啡豆後先聞一下咖啡粉的乾香氣
  • 沖泡咖啡後聞一下沖煮後所散發出來的濕香氣
  • 喝一口沖煮後未加糖奶的咖啡感受入口的滋味
  • 用舌頭輕輕地來回滑動體會咖啡的口感與質感
  • 接著閉口用鼻子呼吸感受一下咖啡香醇的餘韻

其實小編認為喝咖啡呢,囫圇吞棗式得入喉然後苦苦的回味提神固然是一種方式,但它其實更可以是品味生活的另一種生活提案。工作累了嗎?慢下腳步來杯手沖單品,放鬆一下吧!

Coffee originated in Ethiopia and became a popular drink in Italy.  Now, we can now see coffee shops on every corner around the world.  Later on, with the third wave of Specialty Coffee Culture in NORDIC, more and more people are in love with Single Origin Coffee.  Single Origin Coffee means coffee beans from the same area, made with careful processing and the correct degree of roasting.  Single Origin Coffee usually has superior taste with its own terroir and signature flavour.

Pour Over Coffee was invented by a housewife, Bentz Melitta in Germany and has recently become popular in Japan.  This brewing method is simple but it is a good way to present single origin coffee’s terroir flavour.

How to taste a cup of good single origin pour-over coffee?

  • Grind the fresh beans and smell the fragrance of the dry ground
  • Pour hot water into the ground and smell the aroma
  • Have a sip of your coffee and feel the layers of flavour in your mouth
  • Gently slide your tongue back and forth to feel the texture
  • Slightly close your mouth and breath with your nose to feel the aftertaste

Coffee break?  Let’s have a nice cup of coffee and enjoy the moment~
