Coffee has been a trend for quite sometime, and in recent years; the trend of specialty coffee, and brewing coffee has been a big hit here in Singapore. However, to make that cup of coffee, it is often associated with tedious work, and fancy equipment. When we asked Mr Anthony Lee if fancy equipments are really necessary for the brewing of coffee, he said that it all depends on “ how convenient it is to clean and maintain your equipment”. Fancy equipments, are not a must; in fact simple tools are much easier to maintain, and offers convenience for your day to day needs.
Apart from the equipments, education and knowledge of coffee is another factor that coffee drinkers can get excited about. The littlest things, from the source to the brewing methods goes a long way to affecting the taste profiles of your coffee. This has to do with source, as Mr Anthony Lee explains “source of the coffee beans is very important, where is from and how is it being grown and harvested and plays an important role”. The source of beans are not the only important factor of the coffee taste, the blend and the roast of coffee beans goes a long way to affecting the taste of the coffee.
One of the many things Mr Anthony Lee shared, was the unique taste profiles of Asia. He said “in Asia, we are used to drinking local coffee, so our taste bud is not so calibrated towards appreciating specialty coffee”. As we move forward and embrace this new coffee trend of specialty coffee, we have to keep the taste profile of our consumers here in Asia in mind. Consumers here in Asia are slightly more inclined to stronger tasting coffee. Perhaps a cup of stronger blend or brew would suit their palate.
