『單品系列』曼特寧『Single Origin』Mandheling

印尼的曼特寧在台灣聞名已久,他產自於印尼蘇門答臘托巴胡邊的黏土高原其實曼特寧並非產區或莊園的名字。他的名字其實是一場美麗的誤會。二戰期間日本佔領印尼,有一位日本士兵在某間咖啡館喝到香醇可口的咖啡便問主人咖啡的名字,陰錯陽差下主人以為士兵問的是他是哪裡人,於是他回答的是他民族的名字。後來日本人將這支咖啡發揚光大,風行亞洲。

“Mandheling” has been a well-known coffee in Taiwan, but rarely does people know that Mandheling is actually not a coffee origin place nor a port name. It’s a mistaken name from a group of people in Indonesia. In World War II, Japan occupied Indonesia. One day, a Japanese soldier ordered a cup of coffee in a local cafe and was amazed by the wonderful flavour. Therefore, he asked the owner what the coffee’s name was. By accident, the owner thought the soldier was asking where he was from. Later on, this coffee became famous in Japan and Asia for its mistaken name for decades. It’s actually an interesting mistake!
