沖咖啡心得分享連Thanko咖啡機介紹 Our Coffee Sharing and Thanko Coffee Machine Unboxing

thanko coffee machine

今篇岔開少少唔講野食,講飲野。小夫妻除左煮野食之外,仲好鍾意沖咖啡,基本上每日食完lunch就算唔自己沖杯咖啡都要買杯咖啡飲,下晝先有能量支撐落去(癮已上),今次淺談我地識少少既沖啡心得之餘(淨係識好少所以只能淺談),亦講講我地商店有賣既Thanko咖啡機

In this article we are going to explore something out of the scope of cooking and that’s coffee brewing. That’s another interest of us because basically we need a coffee to stay awakened after having lunch. We don’t know much about coffee, so we can just share briefly here. In this article we are also going to unbox our newly available Thanko Coffee Machine

沖咖啡的心得及Thanko咖啡機介紹 Coffee Brewing and Thanko Coffee Machine

手沖咖啡分享 Pourover Coffee Sharing

平時玩手沖咖啡多,所需既器具都幾多: 咖啡磨、手沖壺(連溫度計)、濾杯、濾紙、電子磅(連計時功能),當然仲有咖啡豆。

玩左一段時間,覺得手沖咖啡同連鎖店既意式咖啡非常唔同,味道改變左我對咩係「咖啡味」既睇法之餘,最特別既地方係同一款豆,同樣器具,每個人沖出黎既風味都可以好唔同,甚至自己今日沖同聽日沖都可以風味不同,因為咖啡豆對水溫、粗幼度、水流速度、沖煮時間等等都極為敏感,除非高手可以將所有因素都控制得非常準確,否則好容易每次都會沖煮出唔同既風味。

我地普遍都用淺烘焙既豆黎玩手沖,因為淺炒豆仍然保持大部份豆既「個性」,每種豆都有特別既芬芳,例如有D豆會有熱帶水果味,有D就有白提子味,有D柑橘味,有D朱古力味,有D杏仁味,每種豆既個性都唔同,透過手沖就可以直接咁萃取依D獨特風味。

We usually brew pourover coffee which involves quite a lot of tools: grinder, water kettle (with thermometer), dripper, filter paper, scale (with timer) and of course beans.

We found pourover coffee very different from the espresso type coffee in chain coffee chops. Its flavors redefine coffee in my mind. What’s the most special is that for the same bag of beans, the coffee flavor varies by different people brewing the coffee. Coffee beans are very sensitive to factors like temperature, fineness, waterflow, brewing duration etc. Unless someone can make perfect control on these factors, it’s common to make a coffee with different flavors each time.

Normally we use light roast beans for pourover coffee because they remain their “individuality”. Each type of beans possesses their unique aromas. Some have the flavor of tropical fruits, some are like white grapes, citrus, chocolate, almond.. Essentially every type or even every lot of beans are different and through pourover coffee we can extract the individuality out and have a taste of it.

沖啡既過程都好訓練到專注力,因為要係限時內,倒出計劃好既水量同使用特定既水流速度,一分心,沖得歪,好易就會變得難飲

而咖啡豆最好就係粗幼度磨得平均,咁萃取出黎既咖啡先唔會偏酸/苦澀,睇圖都見到我地既粉粗幼唔算平均,因為我地個咖啡磨都係基本款,課金玩家可以玩到幾萬蚊買個磨都有,個D磨既效果就會做得好好多

Coffee brewing trains our concentration. We need to pour a planned amount of water in specific waterflow within limited time. If we get distracted during the process, we may end up brewing a poor brewed coffee

And for coffee beans, it’s important to make the powder evenly grinded so that the eventual solution won’t be too sour/ bitter. You may find that our powder is not really evenly grinded because we are using a basic model of grinder. Some expensive grinders can be up to a few thousand HKD and they can do a much better job

飲手沖咖啡既體驗都好特別,每款豆沖完出黎既唔同時間都會展現唔同既風味,有D一沖起會充滿花香,但攤涼左就有果酸味,有D掉返轉熱既時間會有果酸,涼左反而整體香氣更突出,由於味道每一刻都變化緊,飲下飲下就個人都好似變得無咁執着要某一種味道長期留低,然後覺得依個係活在當下好好既練習… lol

The experience of drinking pourover coffee is special. The coffees made by different beans would have specific flavor in various stages. Some would be floral once it’s brewed and turn acidic when it’s cooled and some are the other way round. As the flavor changes over time, the journey of appreciating pourover coffee inspires us not to be too stubborn in something. Carpe diem!

Thanko磨豆沖粉雙用式咖啡機開箱 Unboxing Thanko Coffee Machine

手沖咖啡係好有樂趣,但同時我地一直都想要部咖啡機,因為有時未必下下都有mood品嚐精品咖啡,只係想快靚正咁有杯質素OK既咖啡飲下。今次我地就試下Thanko既磨豆沖粉雙用式咖啡機,睇下用深烘焙既豆同淺烘焙既豆,會做出咩效果!

Making pourover coffee is fun but we always want a coffee machine because sometimes we just want a speedy coffee with fair quality. This time we are going to try Thanko coffee machine with dark roast and light roast beans. Let’s see how it will go!

開箱,有咖啡機既主機、咖啡豆/粉隔、保溫杯同埋說明書。
用上黎好簡單,放左咖啡豆/ 粉入隔,入水,撳相應既掣,咖啡就會自己萃出

Unboxed! We have the machine, filter, insulated mug and user manual.
It’s so simple to use. Simple add coffee bean/ powder in the filter, add water, then press the corresponding button, coffee will be automatically brewed

首先試下朋友送既日本深炒豆,我地之前都係用moka pot黎沖佢,今次就用咖啡機睇下有咩分別

BTW,所有依D食物機器第一次用我地都會先由佢空轉幾次,即係加少少豆同佢由佢自己沖2轉先,因為通常都要有D熱水沖走D機器味道

To begin with we tried the dark roast which we used to brew it with our moka pot

BTW, for all food related machine we let it run for 1-2 times before actually consume the product. This time we added some beans and water for washing the machine odor before actually using it

將豆放入咖啡隔
深炒豆,一人飲既話,我會加4匙(跟機有埋)多少少,依度就會係15g左右

Put coffee beans into the filter
For dark roast for 1, we added slightly more that 4 spoons (included in the machine) and that would be around 15g

加水,200ml左右,咁沖到出黎就唔會太濃

Add around 200ml of water

然後撳左掣後,佢就會自己運作,5分鐘左右就會完成個萃取過程

Press the button and the machine will do the work. In around 5 mins the brewing process will be completed

沖出黎既味道係幾好,飲得到少少豆本身既花香味,不過由於係深炒豆,本身花香味並唔特別突出。但同moka pot比既話,我地又覺我Thanko咖啡機沖出黎好飲d,我地用moka pot成日沖出黎都會偏苦澀(唔知係咪技術問題)

The brew was nice. We could taste the floral aroma of the beans but of course it’s a dark roast so the floral aroma wasn’t especially strong. If compared to the coffee made by a moka pot, we thought the Thanko coffee machine did a better work. Not sure if we did something wrong or what, our coffee made by moka pot usually tastes a bit bitter

然後就試下依包Knockbox出品既埃賽俄比亞Guji Gerbicho豆,cupping note寫有玫瑰同士多啤梨風味。由於屬於淺炒豆,就算手沖都唔係成日成功沖得好飲,放落咖啡機沖,其實都係抱住實驗心態去try try

Now let’s try this Guji Gerbicho from Ethiopia roasted by Knockbox. The cupping note stated that there are aromas of rose and strawberry. As it’s a light roast, even if we made pourover coffee we couldn’t manage to make it nicely brewed for every time. Using this Thanko coffee machine was just a wild try to see what would happen

淺炒豆本身密度較高,加左3匙左右就已經係15g,水量我地加多左少少,用左大概250g去沖

撳個掣,等一陣,咖啡出來了。沖到出黎,有驚喜,同cafe飲既手沖一定無得比,因為佢都會沖出苦澀味,但驚喜既地方係佢都沖到有花香味,唔係我地想像中沖到錯晒,入唔到口個種味道(玩過手沖會知咩叫沖到錯晒)。如果平時懶,唔想拎晒成set手沖用具出黎搞,我地會接受到直接用Thanko機去沖。但當然如果買既係Geisha貴野,都會自己沖返/出cafe飲。

Light roast beans are denser so 3 spoons would be around 15g. We added 250ml of water in

Just pressed on the button and waited for awhile the coffee is here. The result was a surprise to us. Of course the pourover coffee in a cafe was beyond compare, but the Thanko machine made coffee did a successful job in extracting the floral aroma from the beans. It’s way better than our expectation of a cup of messily made coffee. If we just want to be lazy, we would go for the Thanko coffee machine to brew or light roast (of course for expensive Geisha we prefer DIY/ go to a cafe)

清洗都好方便,拎返個咖啡隔出黎,洗洗即可。
D豆真係會磨到粉狀,我地都有D出奇點解唔會沖到淺炒豆入唔到口,或者我地加水既比例算係多,都有影響。

Cleaning is fairly easy. Just take out the filter and wash it
The beans were finely ground. We don’t know why the light roast coffee still tasted ok. Maybe it’s because of the water added being a bit more than usual

如果平時趕出門口,快快脆脆撳杯咖啡去便携杯出門飲都幾開心,不過小心俾貓打翻隻杯

Make a coffee in a foldable mug then go. But make sure your cat won’t knock over the mug

Chillllllllll

我地既理想咖啡閣長這樣,不過都係ff下算,兩隻貓唔洗一陣就會整跌晒d野

This is our ideal coffee corner but it can only be a fantasy because our cats will destroy it in minutes
