Pour the hand-drip coffee into a tea-bowl and whisk it with a tea whisk or “chasen” to let in air. When air gets mixed, the coffee turns to a mellow taste.
If you want to keep the sharp taste characteristics of specialty coffee, just add air in small amount, and if you want to emphasize the mellowness, whisk well. By including air, the temperature of the coffee can be adjusted to a suitable temperature that is not too hot. *it is said that adding 30 °C to the human body temperature, is the optimum temperature to feel deliciousness.
Pour the coffee into a special “taste cup”. The shape of the “taste cup“ firmly confines the aroma and keep along the lips of the mouth, and is designed so that coffee hits the best position of the tongue that feels mellowness. This is the way to drink coffee more deliciously while holding the cup with both hands and by enjoying it mindfully.
