Barista For One Day 2018

3月31日和4月2日,假期的开始,我们为大家带来了精心准备的咖啡体验课程,短短三小时内,前来参与的学员们了解了咖啡的知识,品尝了各国的味道,也自己亲手尝试了雕花与拉花。

小课堂的开始,大家围成一圈,仔细听Barista Xpress的老师介绍咖啡的背景知识,各种咖啡原果实打破了大家对咖啡的刻板印象。

紧接着,老师为大家准备了三种来自不同国家的咖啡豆,亲手冲泡供大家品尝。来自埃塞俄比亚的咖啡豆凭借奇特的香味得到了许多在场学员的好评。

之后,老师也为大家介绍了生活中经常接触到的,如Flat White,Mocha等咖啡的区别。

在理论知识过后,几位老师亲自上阵,为大家演示如何将咖啡豆磨出最好的样子。老师们也讲解了咖啡机上用于打奶泡的喷枪的教程、从磨咖啡豆,到倒奶泡,每一步都有老师在旁协助。学员们纷纷调制出了属于自己的Cappuccino。

在老师的指导下,学员们将巧克力酱与糖浆细细雕在刚刚调好的cappuccino上。两种颜色交替浮现出了不同的造型。学员们也尝试了用倾倒奶泡的手法,勾勒出各式图案。

虽然只有三小时,但是来参加的学员都体会到了制作咖啡的乐趣,也意识到那些看似简单的图形背后,藏着的是不简单的手法。

On 31st March and 2nd April, our “One-Day Barista‘ courses were held in A-primo cafe, and it has been a big success. In three hours, we learned the method of making a good cup of coffee with delicate latte art. At the first 30 minutes, the barista from Barista Xpress introduced the difference between various types of coffee, such as flat white, mocha and cappuccino, as well as the pour-over coffee which is purely made from baked coffee beans and water. We had a chance to try out and compare three kinds of pour-over coffee, originate from Columbia, Ethiopia, and Indonesia. From the lesson, we had gained an overall view of coffee culture.

We started the main part of the event after the brief introduction. Firstly, the teacher demonstrated the method on how to make good espresso using a coffee machine. Then, he showed us the way of using the steamer to make proper milk foam so that it would be suitable to make latte art. Every step of making coffee is not easy but require lots of practice, and the teachers worked patiently with every student.

The “doing” part was a real fun. We painted our creativity on the top of the milk foam with chocolate sauce and caramel. We made the latte art with the barista, and we tasted the harvest of our hard work. It was also a great time to photograph our masterpiece and share it with our friends.

Above all, it was a wonderful time, and this selected album contains all the fun we had! See if you can find yourself from the album, and don’t forget to tag your friends when you see them 😉  It’s a pleasure to have you this time, see you again at the next event!
