English Corner丨為什麼大家喜歡去星巴克?真是喝咖啡?

星巴克店裡都有哪些人?

有洽談事業的商務人士,有悠閒寫作的自由工作者,也有奮筆疾書寫作業的中學生。

那麼,我們去星巴克,真的只是喝咖啡嗎?

來看看Quora上的國外網友們怎麼聊的:

Do people go to Starbucks for good coffee?

人們去星巴克是為了喝好咖啡嗎?

I go to Starbucks to do work. I can rent a desk there for a few dollars an hour. I get a reasonable internet connection and for some reason, I can focus there. 

我去星巴克是為了工作。我可以在那兒一小時花幾美元租一個桌子,還能上網,而且由於某種原因,我在那兒能集中精神。

The coffee is not that great but I regard it as fee.

咖啡並不是特別好喝,但也算得上是咖啡。

I believe the reason so many people enjoy it is because Starbuck’s espresso is a dark roast with a strong (dare I say bitter) flavor to which, when you add sweet and creamy ingredients to, you can still taste the coffee. That’s key. 

我想這麼多人喜歡星巴克是因為星巴克的濃咖啡是一種焦炒咖啡,味道很衝(可以說是很苦),加糖和奶後依然能品嚐到咖啡的味道,這才是關鍵。

Starbuck’s coffee goes well with cream and sugar, if you’re into that. It’s strong and bold no matter what you do to it.

星巴克的咖啡加奶和糖很好喝,如果你喜歡這種喝法的話,無論加什麼都很苦很澀。

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

做咖啡師的經歷使我品嚐到了一些很美味、原生態味道的咖啡豆,中度烘焙後它們的味道很特別,會有各種味道(有時像茶的味道),並且黑咖啡口感都不錯,但其實加奶和糖會影響口感。

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

如果有人喜歡特濃咖啡,還喜歡加奶和糖的話,那一定不喜歡輕度或中度烘焙的。

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

最後我想說的是,人們喜歡就是喜歡,很少會去探究其背後的原因。

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

你需要擴展一下對“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’s pressed and then served into the cup.

如果你是意大利的純粹主義者,那“好咖啡”就是指咖啡豆的品質、原產地、研磨和沖泡方式。

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

但你(我簡單說)住在非地中海國家,如果是這樣的話,下面才是“好咖啡”的意義:

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

找一個合適的理由和你愛或喜歡的人坐在一起放鬆一下,什麼都不做。

So yes. Starbucks do do ‘good coffee’.

所以,對,星巴克確實有“好咖啡”。

那你去星巴克的目的是什麼呢?
