Qianjie opened the city for the third day, during which colleagues took out their own home specialties to share with each other, and there was even a box of sweet-scented osmanthus cakes in the snack pile, which reminded Qianjie of the sweet-scented osmanthus coffee. Don't say much, start making a cup and have an aftertaste right away!

Why sweet-scented osmanthus?

Sweet-scented osmanthus is a kind of flowers filled with fragrance. In thousands of years of Chinese food culture, sweet-scented osmanthus is not only made into sweet-scented osmanthus cake, but also studied into sweet-scented osmanthus tea, sweet-scented osmanthus wine, sweet-scented osmanthus jelly and so on (there is no doubt that foodie was the ancestor).

Coffee beans also contain fragrant substances similar to the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus, so when sweet-scented osmanthus is added to the coffee, it not only will not disobey, but may also have an amazing taste.

Ps: freshly picked sweet-scented osmanthus can not be used directly. It needs to be treated with a certain process before it can become edible sweet-scented osmanthus. You can search for processing methods through the Internet, and if you are too lazy to do it, you can buy a big bag of takeout for 10 yuan, just like Qianjie. )

Osmanthus fragrans concentrated

As the name implies, it is a cup of espresso with sweet-scented osmanthus scent. But if you want to bring the aroma of sweet-scented osmanthus to the concentration, while keeping the original mellow flavor of Espresso, you also need some tricks in the production.

Some friends may want to throw the sweet-scented osmanthus directly into the concentrate, but the release of the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus takes a certain time, and the concentrated oil and flavor may be lost in this process. Therefore, Qianjie chose to throw sweet-scented osmanthus into coffee powder and accept the "baptism" of high-pressure hot water together!

Qianjie has been tested that when sweet-scented osmanthus is mixed into coffee powder and extracted together, the liquid column ejection phenomenon (channel effect) will be produced because of the obvious density and volume difference between the two, and the flavor of the extracted coffee will become unstable. So Qianjie uses a relatively safer way to cook sweet-scented osmanthus above or below pressed powder.

Qianjie used warm sun to mix Italian beans and put sweet-scented osmanthus above and below pressed powder for extraction and comparison: 1, spread the dried sweet-scented osmanthus at the bottom of the powder bowl and fill the coffee powder; 2, first pour the coffee powder into the powder bowl and compact. gently spread dried sweet-scented osmanthus on its surface and press it again. (PS:20g coffee powder uses 0.3g sweet-scented osmanthus)

The two extraction processes are relatively stable, the time is not much different from the normal extraction parameters, there is no similar channel effect mentioned above, and Espresso can smell the faint fragrance of flowers. After making the two concentrates into a hot American taste, the coffee extracted by putting sweet-scented osmanthus at the bottom of pressed powder is the fullest, drinking with a touch of sweet-scented osmanthus aroma, in addition to the unique wine acidity of warm sun.

Osmanthus latte

If you still want to taste the taste of sweet-scented osmanthus concentrated with milk, you need to add extra sweet-scented osmanthus syrup (because the milk will mask the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus).

First extract a concentrated liquid (20g coffee powder to extract 40ml's Espresso), mix it with 15g sweet-scented osmanthus syrup, then make a latte (about 200g milk), and finally sprinkle dried sweet-scented osmanthus on the surface to make the latte look good and smell a little sweet-scented osmanthus fragrance.

Of course, if you don't have sweet-scented osmanthus syrup but want to drink hot sweet-scented osmanthus milk coffee, try making piccolo coffee (mini latte).

The dried sweet-scented osmanthus was extracted under coffee pressed powder. Two portions of 20g sweet-scented osmanthus concentrate were extracted with a shunt handle, and one of them was added to 60g steamed milk with thin milk foam at 1:2. After a close taste, in addition to the fragrance of coffee and the sweet taste of milk, the fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus is also more obvious and delicious.

Sweet-scented osmanthus pure iced American coffee

There is still one portion of the concentrated liquid that has just been shunted. In the spirit of not wasting, Qianjie poured the shot directly into ice cubes to make pure iced American coffee. The American style made in this way is closer to directly tasting the concentrate, but under the cooling and dilution of the ice, it retains more fragrance of sweet-scented osmanthus, and the whole cup of coffee is not as bitter as expected. instead, it is very refreshing and tastes good, with a hint of sweet-scented osmanthus. Gaga tastes good.

Osmanthus fragrans Dirty

Now we know that sweet-scented osmanthus can not only increase the appearance of coffee, but also make the taste of coffee more possible. And Dirty, a coffee drink with both appearance and taste online. When the two meet, what kind of spark will collide?

First pick a good-looking glass, add some dried sweet-scented osmanthus to the sweet-scented osmanthus syrup, invert the glass to make it stick around the edge of the cup, then pour in about 170g ice milk, extract a portion of sweet-scented osmanthus concentrate on the surface, so that a cup of sweet-scented osmanthus Dirty is finished! Before tasting, you can smell the elegant fragrance of flowers. After a sip, you can not only taste the warm and bitter coffee, but also feel the fresh cinnamon fragrance. Finally, the cold milk is sweet, layered and full of flavor.

Osmanthus fragrans hand flush

After making so many cups of coffee, there are still a lot of dried sweet-scented osmanthus left, so let's make a whole pot of sweet-scented osmanthus in front of the street.

Considering that sweet-scented osmanthus has a strong sweet smell, it is suitable to match with lighter coffee beans, so Guatemala New Oriental Rosa coffee beans are chosen. Compared with Italian concentration, sweet-scented osmanthus can release aroma more fully when washed by hot water for about 2 minutes. Therefore, do not need to add too much, use 15 grams of powder to put about 1 gram of dried sweet-scented osmanthus, slightly covered with powder layer surface.

Extraction parameters: 15g coffee powder; 1:15 powder-to-water ratio, 91 ℃ water temperature; grindness: EK43s 9.5g (85% filtration rate of No. 20 standard sieve); V60 filter cup; three-stage manipulation.

Actual taste: in the process of brewing, you can smell the blend of sweet-scented osmanthus and coffee. The entrance is bright and full of citrus acid and rich peach flavor. After cooling, the whole cup of coffee is like peach oolong tea, soft and smooth.
