The Nose is a fine Judge.
-Serge Lutens

Next time, when we enter a coffee-shop, let’s take a moment to consider the scent of the space. Do we smell the appetizing fragrances of freshly roasted beans or brewed coffee? Is there anything in the air that strikes us? Let’s pick up the scent in the air and think about what kind of emotions the smell of the space triggers in us.

But let’s also keep in mind that many businesses, including prominent coffee-shop chains, pump artificial scents into the air as a tool to increase the purchase of coffee drinks. Continue reading

TARRAZU

We rented a car for 1 week and explored the Tarrazu region, which is located in the Central Highlands of Costa Rica. This area is a gourmet coffee growing center of the country and a mecca for coffee-lovers.
While driving through the highlands and valleys, we passed many coffee fields. We saw quiet mountain towns surrounded by spectacular mountains, which are completely covered with shiny-leafed coffee bushes.

Loving Coffee Knowledgeably – coffee travel stories

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.

– Bertrand Russell

COFFEE TRAVEL STORY NO.1

When I was travelling around Asia, I spoke with many local baristas. I also used the chance to participate in various coffee brewing workshops.

I am amazed, how baristas in Asia generally have a strong desire to really understand the complex processes of coffee growing, harvesting, processing, roasting, brewing and tasting. They want to know, how one process has a causal effect on the other processes. Many Asian baristas enjoy to taste coffee knowledgeably. It brings them happiness to understand why for some brews the most notable flavor is blueberry or dark chocolate. Continue reading

Specialty Coffee shops in Hong Kong – A personal observation 2018

Posted in COFFEE TRAVEL
on July 12, 2018

In Hong Kong, the weather is usually hot and humid with plenty of sunshine.

Moments from Hong Kong

I was surprised when I discovered that most specialty coffee shops serve their coffee drinks together with a glass of warm water. In Europe, we usually drink cold or even iced water – and not just during hot summer days. When brewing coffee, we measure the water temperature precisely. But do we really think about the temperature about the water that accompanies our coffee drink Continue reading
