COFFEE CULTURE IN ASIA

Coffee travel around South – East  Asia

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 tasting coffee knowledgeably. It brings them happiness to understand why for some brews the most notable flavor is blueberry or dark chocolate. Continue reading COFFEE CULTURE IN ASIA

THE ENERGY OF COFFEE

Energy in coffee – four small articles

Smell, Taste, Enjoy or what is true coffee passion.

Every coffee-lover should have at least three coffee monkeys inside themselves. Each monkey has a different task. One focuses on tasting flavours. Another one explores the aromas with his/her nose. And one more monkey feels the body of the coffee.

COFFEE BREWING – SMALL DETAILS

Ideal recipe for coffee brewing, what it will work for each coffee “DOESN’T EXIST!”

Coffee recipes are ideal, for beginning and coffee shops. Once you start with coffee brewing. After, you will get some new skills, try to avoid of using some recipes. Even in good coffee shops, where are experienced Baristas and often they change coffee beans, they don’t use Brewing recipes. If, yes, they are laying to you, or they have bad management who don’t trust to them, or they are not good Baristas. For me good Barista has to have some passion and love coffee.
