【双语】人们去星巴克只是为了喝咖啡吗?

I go to Starbucks to do work. I can rent a desk therefor a few dollars an hour. I get a reasonableinternet connection and for some reason, I can focusthere. The coffee is not that great but I regard it asfee.

我去星巴克是为了工作。我可以在那儿一小时花几美元租一个桌子,还能上网,而且由于某种原因,我在那儿能集中精神。咖啡并不是特别好喝,但也算得上是咖啡。

I believe the reason so many people enjoy it isbecause Starbuck's espresso is a dark roast with astrong (dare I say bitter) flavor to which, when youadd sweet and creamy ingredients to, you can still taste the coffee. That's key. Starbuck'scoffee goes well with cream and sugar, if you're into that. It's strong and bold no matter whatyou do to it.

我想这么多人喜欢星巴克是因为星巴克的浓咖啡是一种焦炒咖啡,味道很冲(可以说是很苦),加糖和奶后依然能品尝到咖啡的味道,这才是关键。星巴克的咖啡加奶和糖很好喝,如果你喜欢这种喝法的话,无论加什么都很苦很涩。

In my experience as a Barista I've tasted some beautiful, single origin coffee beans, mediumroast, they had interesting and varied flavor profiles (sometimes "tea-like") , and they were alldelicious as is, black, but it (practically) ruined them if you add cream and sugar.

做咖啡师的经历使我品尝到了一些很美味、原生态味道的咖啡豆,中度烘焙后它们的味道很特别,会有各种味道(有时像茶的味道),并且黑咖啡口感都不错,但其实加奶和糖会影响口感。



If someone likes a strong cup of coffee, to which they like to add cream and sugar to, theywould typically complain about a light or a medium roast.

如果有人喜欢特浓咖啡,还喜欢加奶和糖的话,那一定不喜欢轻度或中度烘焙的。

Ultimately, people like what they like, and they don't really care why.

最后我想说的是,人们喜欢就是喜欢,很少会去探究其背后的原因。

You need to broaden your interpretation of what the words 'good coffee' mean.

你需要扩展一下对“好咖啡”的理解。

If you're an Italian purist it means the quality of the bean, where it's bought in from, how it'spressed and then served into the cup.

如果你是意大利的纯粹主义者,那“好咖啡”就是指咖啡豆的品质、原产地、研磨和冲泡方式。

But you (I'm taking leap here) live in NON-MEDITERRANEAN country. If you do. Here is what'good coffee' means:

但你(我简单说)住在非地中海国家,如果是这样的话,下面才是“好咖啡”的意义:

Finding a convenient 'reason' to sit, relax and do nothing with the people you love/care for.

找一个合适的理由和你爱或喜欢的人坐在一起放松一下,什么都不做。

So yes. Starbucks do do 'good coffee'.

所以,对,星巴克确实有“好咖啡”。
