While many people like to order the takeaway cup in the Starbuck, or drink in a rush and go, I’m attracted to the romance of the coffee experience by sitting inside a comfortable coffee shop, to enjoy my favorite cup of coffee, sipping slowly, to enjoy each mouthful well. The soft light and the calm music make me feel relax. The beautiful lyric from the old song swirling around with the coffee aromas brings up a variety of good feelings. When my friends spend time on social media, networking, or searching for entertainment, I like to spend time on coffee.
Black coffee or Latte?
Let’s come together over coffee for a time of relaxation. People try to convince the world that water is boring, coffee is great. It works. What is good coffee? Good coffee is like a gorgeous woman (hot and has good taste 😊). Bad coffee is bitter, sour, burnt, and astringent. Good coffee is sweet, fruity, chocolaty, smooth, and light-bodied. Different people get different taste profiles over the combination of aromas, sweetness, floral, fruits, and nutty cocoa.
Whenever I feel tired, I’ll get an expresso. This tiny cup is strong enough to get me fueled all day long. We should avoid caffeine as it would dry out our skin, shouldn’t we? Well, yes, but coffee lovers don’t like decaffeinated. If you drink decaffeinated coffee, you are better to drink chocolate.
If you ask for a “latte” in Italy, you’ll most probably get a cup of cold milk. You should order “latte macchiato” which consists of hot milk add to the coffee. It sounds like coffee and milk are not necessarily friends to bind together. As a matter of personal taste, black coffee is my taste. But I like latte art. It’s cute. The cup of coffee looks so lovely by adding a little cat that is made by the milk foam, to see it floating and drowning in the liquid. I have learned to make the DIY Flat white with latte art. Make a latte at home without an espresso machine is not difficult. Pour fresh milk into a large bowl, stirring the milk with a whisk until it becomes foam. Add the foam into the espresso. That’s it.
Evil Partners: Sugar and Desserts?
Coffee is supposed to boost up energy. Why you feel more tired after drinking coffee? It’s because you add high sugar, partner with sweetie desserts. When the brain needs energy, it wants sugar that makes the blood sugar inflated. The insulin suppresses the high blood sugar, blood sugar deflated, hormone comes out to balance, and makes the body further stress and fermented. As a result, you will feel anxiety, stress, and fatigue.
But I like partnering dessert with coffee, anyway. A perfect match for coffee is partnering it with cookies, cheesecake, or blueberry cake. The taste of Kona coffee is strong when partnering with chocolate. On the other hand, the taste of Blue Mountain coffee is light so that when partnering with cake or sweet snack will cover the coffee taste. Italian coffee is great to drink after the full meal…All in all, sweetie desserts have high sugar that needs to avoid consuming too much.
Explore Coffee Culture
When I was traveling to other countries, I would like to experience their coffee culture. Have you ever captivated by the romance of the Italian coffee experience? I was attracted to try Italian coffee in Antico Caffe Greco. It was one of the best-known and oldest bar (opened in 1760) in Rome. Historical figures of artists, writers, and musicians including Stendhal, Goethe, Bertel Thorvaldsen, Mariano and so on have had coffee there. The fame of the café has attracted an influx of tourists that makes it always a bit too crowded.
The little cafés around Australia are impressive. They are brewing their coffee, fresh and local. Your favorite barista knows how to make your coffee just as you like it. When you're sitting down at a little café in Australia, order a cup of coffee, make your judgment for the taste difference.
All in all, what else of your coffee experience that can share with me?
