如何辨别好咖啡?-第39届青年股长陈骏名

怎样才算是一杯好咖啡?问同安会馆青年股长陈骏名,你将得到详细的答案,甚至可以写成博士论文。

骏名的父亲陈长贺亦是会馆互助部主任,是咖啡业的前辈。由于母亲是挑选咖啡豆的工头,小时的陈长贺耳濡目染,认识不少和咖啡有关的事物。十多岁时,他为一家颇出名的咖啡商打工,做的是烤咖啡豆的工作,累积了一些年的经验后,加上勤奋好学,二十多岁时,他决定自立门户,并且得到老板的支持。

今天,陈长贺不只拥有自己的工厂,售卖咖啡豆和咖啡粉,也代理欧洲名牌咖啡冲泡机。骏名是他最小的儿子,不但对咖啡情有独钟,也愿意继承衣钵。谈起 咖啡,骏名眉飞色舞。虽然懂得不少和咖啡有关的知识,不过,他对咖啡的热爱,特别是鉴赏好咖啡,却是在2005年,他到澳洲上了咖啡师傅的课程后才开始 的。

骏名也是同安会馆青年股长。成为会馆理事后,他希望更多年轻人能加入会馆,他希望采取积极态度,招揽年轻会员成为理事。他深信,这个过程,不应该为理事会现有的结构所牵绊。

2007年对骏名来说,是很重要的一年,因为这一年的十月五日,他小登科了。在此又一次祝愿他婚姻生活美满。在他享受新婚生活的同时,也希望他完成学业上、更上一层楼的梦想。

What makes a cup of good coffee?

What makes a cup of good coffee? Pose this question to TADG’s Vice Honorary Secretary Mr Tan Tiong Hoo and expect to get answers so detailed you can write a thesis about it.

The 64-year-old is a veteran in coffee business. Influenced by his mother, a supervisor in coffee bean grading, Mr Tan met many coffee people since young. He started off as a coffee bean roaster in his teens working for a major coffee trader. After having roasted coffee for a number of years, he acquired the skills and knowledge about coffee trading and brewing. He then started his own business with blessings from his boss. Now, Mr Tan not only sells coffee beans and powder but is also the supplier of branded European coffee making machines.

His youngest son Jun Ming (26) shares his passion for coffee. Talk about coffee, this young chap speaks non-stop just like his dad. His love for coffee, though, is not hereditary. Equipped with lots of knowledge about coffee, he only started to savour this black liquid after attending a coffee barista course in 2005 in Australia where he learned and appreciated the highly professional way of managing a coffee bar.

Jun Ming is also the Deputy Head of TADG’s youth wing. Having joined TADG council for a number of years, Jun Ming hopes to engage more young members and feels strongly that their involvement should not be restricted by the structure of the council.

To Jun Ming, 5 Oct 2007 is a red letter day as he married his loved one with blessings from all council members. Much as we would like to see him enjoy his married life, we also wish him good luck in fulfilling his dream for greater academic achievement.
