溫杯會讓咖啡更好喝嗎 Does pre-warm cup make a better coffee?

從小身邊喝咖啡的人,常會在喝咖啡前說著要先溫杯這件事,好像不溫不專業,「溫杯」這件事很重要嗎?

 

Since childhood, we often hear from people who have been drinking coffee say that it’s better pre-warm the cup before drinking coffee, which seems unprofessional if we don’t pre-warm the cup. Is “pre-warm cup” important?

 

我們知道溫度會影響萃取率,也知道溫度會影響味覺感受,那有需要溫杯嗎?誠如前言,溫杯指二個部份,其一,接觸咖啡粉的器具要溫杯;其二,接觸咖啡液入口的器具要溫杯。其實溫杯還滿重要的。

 

We know that temperature affects the extraction rate, and we also know that temperature affects the perception of taste, so is there a need to pre-warm cup? As mentioned in the introduction, the warm cup refers to two parts: one, the utensils that come into contact with the coffee powder should be pre-warmed; second, the utensils that come into contact with coffee liquid should be pre-warmed too. In fact, pre-warm cup is very important.

 

接觸咖啡粉的器具要溫杯
以手沖來說,濾杯與濾紙接觸咖啡粉,溫度偏低、萃取率會降低,有效掌握萃取率,要確保濾杯的溫度是熱的,可以增加萃取率;以義式濃縮來說,義式咖啡機把手接觸咖啡粉,在短短30秒內要完成萃取,維持把手溫度可有效增加萃取率,讓咖啡香醇甘甜。

 

Pre-warm utensils that come into contact with ground coffee

For pour-over brewing, when the filter cup and filter paper are in contact with coffee powder, the temperature is low and the extraction rate will decrease. To effectively control the extraction rate, it is necessary to ensure that the temperature of the filter cup is hot, which can increase the extraction rate. For espresso, The handle of the espresso machine touches the coffee powder, and the extraction is completed in just 30 seconds. Maintaining the handle temperature can effectively increase the extraction rate and make the coffee mellow and sweet.

 

接觸咖啡液入口的器具要溫杯
品飲咖啡時,好的咖啡在高溫、中溫、低溫都有不同風味的變化,如果入口的杯具在裝盛咖啡前有先溫杯,在高溫的咖啡風味就可以被品嚐到,再接著慢慢品嚐咖啡的中溫、低溫。但如果只想喝中溫以下的風味變化,就可以省略溫杯;像是夏天很熱,直接喝溫咖啡、或喝冷萃咖啡,就是感受咖啡中低溫的風味感受。另一方面,如果咖啡在中低溫時很難喝,那請一定要溫杯,在高溫時就快快把它喝完,會有這種情況,一般來說,就是品質比較低下的咖啡;好的精品咖啡,在各種溫度都有怡人香醇的風味變化,值得我們細細品味。

 

Pre-warm utensils that come into contact with coffee liquid

When we drink coffee, good coffee has different flavor changes at high temperature, medium temperature and low temperature. If coffee cup is pre-warmed before filling the coffee, the coffee flavor at high temperature can be tasted, and then slowly taste the medium and low temperature of the coffee. However, if you only want to drink the flavor changes below the medium temperature, you can omit to pre-warm cup. For example, it is very hot in summer, we drink warm coffee directly or cold brewed coffee to feel the flavor of coffee at medium and low temperature. On the other hand, if the coffee is not so good to drink at medium and low temperature, please be sure to pre-warm the cup, and drink it quickly when it is high temperature. Generally speaking, it is coffee of relatively low quality when we have situation like this. The good quality specialty coffee has pleasant and mellow flavor changes at various temperatures, which is worthy of our careful taste.
