與精品咖啡邂逅的午後時光 - La Cuisson(下)

與精品咖啡邂逅的午後時光 - La Cuisson(下)

我開始好奇於在沖泡前的咖啡豆經過了這麼多繁複的手續,想必這杯咖啡的沖煮時間也需要經過這漫長的歲月。我看著眼前的虹吸式咖啡壺說:「我對於手工咖啡的印象是,需要下很多功夫,而且很麻煩,感覺要煮很久!」

I began to wonder if the coffee beans before the brewing had gone through so many complicated procedures, and it would be necessary that the brewing also needs to go through a long period of time. I looked at the siphon coffee pot and said, "My impression of handmade coffee is that it takes a lot of works and it is very troublesome. It takes a long time to cook"

 Jason走向了吧台,說:「 我們現在就來煮一杯咖啡,看看需要花多少時間。」

Jason went to the bar, "Let's make a cup of coffee now and see how long it take."

 

下壺注入約93度的水,將上壺傾斜著插入下壺,開啟瓦斯燈,待下壺的水開始沸騰後,水慢慢的經由導管往上升,這時底下的火力關小,當上壺的水開始沸騰、氣泡穩定後,這時才將上壺與下壺結合,倒入現磨咖啡粉,輕輕的用攪拌匙壓粉與攪拌5圈,這時可以看到由最上層的咖啡油質泡沫、中層的咖啡粉,至最下層的咖啡液體呈現出的層次感,接著50秒一到,再輕輕攪拌5圈後,濕濕的毛巾覆蓋著下壺,讓上壺的咖啡快速地經由濾布往下流,待咖啡全部注入下壺後,即完成一杯具有質感的虹吸式咖啡。從煮水至完成一杯咖啡的時間約莫是3分鐘。

The pot was filled with water of about 93 degrees. After the gas was turned on, the water in the lower pot begins to boil and then the water slowly rose through the tube. At this moment, turned the firepower underneath to small. When the water in the upper pot begins to boil and the bubbles were stable, combined the upper and lower pot, poured into the ground coffee powder, and then gently stirred and stirred for 5 times with a stirring spoon. You could observe the layer of the coffee, at the top is oil foam, in the middle is coffee powder, and at the bottom is the coffee liquid. In 50 seconds, after gently stirring for 5 times, he used the wet towel to cover the pot in order to let the coffee on the pot quickly flew down through the filter cloth. After the coffee is completely poured into the pot, a cup of textured siphon coffee is completed. The time from boiling water to completing a cup of coffee is about 3 minutes.

 

我目不轉睛的盯著咖啡的變化,絲毫忘記了時間的流逝。

I couldn't get my eyes off the change of coffee and forget about time.

 

 三分鐘能做多少事?— 能給你一杯好咖啡

這三分鐘的時間很神奇,當你還專注地看著沸騰時的水,以及咖啡萃取時呈現的漸層色彩,還在驚嘆著這神奇的變化時,時間就這麼悄悄地過去,咖啡就這麼的呈上了你的眼前。 所以,虹吸式咖啡需要煮很久嗎?三分鐘說長不長,說短也不短,但看著Jason煮咖啡時的舉手投足,想像著自己也能如此迅速,但台上三分鐘,台下十年功,可以很貼切的運用於此。

It's amazing how three minutes slip through when you were still watching the water is boiling, and the gradual color of the coffee extraction. Next moment, coffee was ready. So, does siphon coffee need to be cooked for a long time? Is three minutes a long time for cooking coffee? It's probably too short to watch the master skilled cooks.

「 煮虹吸式咖啡好玩的地方就在於,對於新手而言,即使你使用同一種咖啡豆,但你每次煮出來的咖啡可能都大不相同啊!如果不花時間好好研究,可能花上一年的時間你都無法煮出品質相等的咖啡,但這過程會讓你每天充滿樂趣呢!」Jason這麼說。

Jason said: "The fun for the beginner to cooking siphonic coffee is, even if you use the same kind of coffee beans, the flavor of coffee you make may vary every time!

如果聽到這,你因此對虹吸式咖啡就卻步了,那豈不是太可惜了嗎?因為一杯好的咖啡,是值得花時間等待與鑽研,無法心急的。 

If you don't take the time to study it, it maybe takes you a year to make your quality consistent. But the learning process will make you happy every day!" A high-end coffee requires time to wait and learn, it can't be rush.

不只是咖啡

如果你和我一樣是初次接觸虹吸式咖啡,那麼,你可以當作認識一個新朋友,也許你會怕自己不懂咖啡,會不會無法分辨咖啡的好與壞。但每次與咖啡的交流,你會慢慢的認識它,不用急於分辨它的好與壞,因為當你用心品味,會發現可以與你心靈有所交集的那杯對的咖啡。

「 我們可以從表面的判斷,例如:你喜歡甜度高,還是喜歡帶有酸酸的口感?但是沒有人可以幫你決定適合你的咖啡豆,因為僅有多品嚐,多試著了解每個咖啡帶給你在嗅覺與味覺上的不同感受,你才會知道最適合你的是誰。」

 Jason進口的優質咖啡中,以牙買加藍山與麝香貓咖啡最具代表性,Jason 讓我聞聞這兩種高貴的咖啡品種,優質的咖啡豆有著深褐色的色澤,以及多層次的香味。而我至今也才了解,原來生豆是沒有什麼咖啡香氣的,但透過精準的烘焙方式,就可以賦予咖啡豆新的生命,就像有了靈魂般。

Among those good coffee imported by Jason, Jamaica Blue Mountain and civet coffee are the most representative. Jason let me smell these two noble coffee families. The high-quality coffee beans have a dark brown color and multi-layered aroma. I have only learned until now that raw beans have no coffee aroma, but through precise baking, they can give coffee beans a new life, just like it's given a soul.

 

  

職人精神

在談話的過程中,我更看到了所謂“職人的精神,當你對一件事情熱愛時,會由內心深處散發不需言語就能令人感到敬佩的能量。

從老闆在滿滿的豆子裡挑出瑕疵豆、守在咖啡烘焙機旁盯著溫度與時間、看著每顆豆子在機器裡旋轉加熱著、烹煮咖啡時望著虹吸壺裡咖啡的漸層變化、品嚐咖啡時帶著的滿足笑容,都可以讓身旁的人感受到無論是生豆、烘焙過的豆子,又或是磨成粉的豆子,都是老闆捧在手心上的珍寶。 

「從進口豆子、烘焙,到烹調咖啡一手包辦,聽起來是如此忙碌,那麼會不會沒有時間好好享受一杯咖啡了呢?」

Finally, I asked: "From the import of beans, baking, to cooking coffee, it sounds so busy, will you have time to enjoy a cup of coffee?"

「品嚐咖啡是我每天必須做的事情,也是我最享受的事情了!怎麼可能沒有時間!」

Jason said: "Tasting coffee is something I have to do every day. Things are also the things I enjoy the most! I will always have time for it!"  

我想,再忙也要好好品嚐一杯咖啡可以說是La Cuisson Cafe(老桂松咖啡) 最好的註解了

I think that concludes the spirit of La Cuisson Cafe, you should never be too busy to not having a cup of coffee!
