Written by admin. Posted in 18 Grams, 18 Grams Media, Blog Post, WanChai

多謝東方日報,同太陽報來做關於Nitro Coffee嘅訪問. 今次嘅報導有講多一些我地做咖啡背後嘅理念,希望大家可以了解深啲。旺角朗豪坊同西貢分店月底就來有得飲啦。到時香港,九龍同新界都有Nitrogen Coffee飲啦。
  Thanks for the interview from Oriental Daily and the-sun.On.CC. A great interview done on Nitrogen Coffee and a more thorough take on what each shop’s approach is. We are happy to let you know that our new MK Langham Shop and Sai Kung shop will start serving Nitrogen coffee by the end of the month. Hope you will enjoy nitrogen coffee in Kowloon and New Territories. Source
 
氮氣咖啡近幾個月紅透全城,有人喜歡其醇厚順滑的口感,也有人愛它冰涼清爽的特質。其實,氮氣咖啡從美國咖啡重鎮波特蘭興起至Hit爆只不過是近一年的事,而香港亦有至少6間咖啡室有穩定供應。如此緊貼潮流,有賴一班專業咖啡師致力鑽研,讓本土咖啡工業跟世界接軌,讓我們有機會潮歎氮氣咖啡。
Nitrogen Coffee(with Banana Mocha Spirit)$98、Belgium Waffles $98 加$30可調入香甜的Banana Mocha Spirit及加上Cascara果乾,以品嘗另一番風味。下午茶配一個焦糖味濃的牛油窩夫及雲呢拿雪糕,大滿足!

10 Best Hipster Cafes in Hong Kong from Skyscanner

Written by admin. Posted in 18 Grams, Blog Post, Mong Kok

Skyscanner
Ok so it’s not the first time someone calls a Specialty Cafe a Hipster Cafe, but here is the list for the 10 Best in Hong Kong.  Kudos to Skyscanner for including us in the list, we are very excited to be recognized internationally.   However our branch mentioned here has moved to a new address on 12 Kwong Wa Street.  So please take note of them.  Due to the crazy economy in Hong Kong(or the world), unfortunately a few of the shops mentioned on this list has either moved or closed.  Kinda sad to see our whole industry being transformed.  For us, the outcome is to split our old Mong Kok store into 2 locations in Mong Kok,  one in Kwong Wa Street, and another in Langham place.  We will find ways to keep pouring high quality coffee in the Mong Kok area. http://www.skyscanner.com.sg/news/10-best-hipster-cafes-hong-kong

灣仔有個墨爾本 早餐Café 大熱氮咖啡by 飲食男女

Written by admin. Posted in 18 Grams, Blog Post, Coffee Talk, WanChai

本地咖啡名店18Grams ,近日在灣仔開設 Coffee Roastery Lab。咖啡店分一、二樓。地鋪是長長的咖啡吧,樓上則主力用作烘焙咖啡及開設特別班之用。 
為何把店名改作Coffee Roastery Lab?翻看咖啡的款式便知一二,除大家認識的一般咖啡,還有現時在澳洲墨爾本初流行的氮咖啡Nitrogen Coffee(當地咖啡店喚作Nitro Cold Brew)。 
咖啡的原理就是把炒好的咖啡豆於低溫長時間釀製再過濾,置入咖啡Tap注入氮氣,令咖啡面層帶泡沬,口感較幼滑,也可中和一般Cold Brew 咖啡的酸性。客人更可選擇有酒版(加入調和威士忌 Blended Whisky)或無酒版。 
負責人有感外國咖啡店的食物水準日趨進步,故他們亦在食物方面下功夫。一系列All Day Breakfast 加入分子料理元素及變身成素菜版,就連甜品款式亦有Up Side Down版本的Apple Crumble。 
至於靈魂咖啡,這裏添置了意大利品牌 Sanremo Opera咖啡機,由來自澳洲、英國等咖啡專家、評審及技術人員硏發出來,設定的程式可穩定水温及控制咖啡萃取度,是本港暫時唯一引入的咖啡店,配搭咖啡店自家烘焙,不時轉款的咖啡豆,務必要抽時間光顧朝聖。 

班尼迪蛋配煙三文魚 $108 // 素食Scotch Egg $108 // 比利時窩夫配士多啤梨雪糕 $78 // Nitrogen Coffee $68 // Apple Crumble $48

品味咖啡 灣仔專業Cafe冒起

Written by admin. Posted in 18 Grams, 18 Grams Media, Blog Post, WanChai

近一、兩年,高質Cafe開個不停。像最近就有兩間專業Cafe同樣選在灣仔開店,一間有世界級咖啡機助陣,一間則有冠軍級咖啡師加持,呷一口他們的出品,你就會明白,飲咖啡不再只為了提神,而是品味人生。文:Sabrina 圖:郭正珊、何健勇

趣味咖啡實驗室

佔地兩層的Coffee Roastery Lab,其實是著名咖啡店18Grams最新開設的咖啡實驗室。叫得做實驗室,當然少不了一系列專業的「實驗」工具,如虹吸咖啡壺、冰滴咖啡器具都一應俱全,不過最矚目的是專程從意大利訂造回來的Sanremo Opera雙頭咖啡機!這部索價十四萬港元的雙頭咖啡機,由2015年世界咖啡師大賽冠軍Sasa Sestic和英國咖啡師大賽冠軍John Gordon等全球十一名咖啡專家共同研發,最厲害之處在於運用了全新技術,令咖啡師能透過App便可輕易更改及計算咖啡萃取率,簡單點來說,就是有效令沖煮Espresso的過程變得更加穩定,不會時濃時淡。同時亦可更改萃取壓力調控,以凸顯不同單品咖啡豆的原有風味。好像店內會定期轉換House Blend和單品咖啡豆,如這天採訪,Single Origin 1+1 Set就用上盧旺達單品咖啡豆,透過預校好的特定咖啡萃取率,就可嚐到朱古力味較重,但又不會過份濃厚的Espresso;再試Cappuccino,感覺更為甜滑,點一Set就可一次過試到兩種不同質感。

        另外,店內更有特別的Nitrogen Coffee Cocktail,利用生啤機將氮氣打入二十至四十八小時低萃取咖啡中,即時添上綿密的奶泡,除了可嚐到用Rwanda和Guatemala等四種咖啡豆製成的House Blend滲出開心果及花香味道,若再加Whisky,兩者味道亦不會互搶,依然頗易入口。
