Our new shop @ 1-3 Mercer street



We wish everyone a healthy and joyful 2017! The start of each year is always a good time to sit down and reflect on ourselves on the plan for this coming year. In 2017 we wish to keep sourcing and roasting some great coffee for our customers. In 2016 we had to close/move some of our shops due to the rent of our shops. The economy in Hong Kong is starting to become even more difficult for small businesses such as us, making us harder to focus on just making great coffee. Our new shop in Sheung Wan is shaping up nicely and we hope we can continue to serve great coffee in this new space, and hope we can conduct some long overdue coffee classes we promised long ago.   We are scheduled to open end of Jan 2017.  See you soon!

Address : 1-3 Mercer street Sheung Wan.

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。
