Wandering by the hustle and bustle of the city, there’s a small lane tranquil and quite, the Marjaro coffee shop is located here. Soft jazz music, warm wooden furniture with a sense of coffee, Pan U, the owner of the coffee shop took out his masterpiece--- ice drop coffee. He shared the characteristic of each kind of coffee and the story behind.
Pan U is full of curiosity and energy, and because of his personality, he indulged himself into film making industry after graduated from electronic department. He used to be the production assistant of advertisement and movies. He liked to make friends with others and meet new friends. Since making films enable him to interact with different people everyday, he found it very interesting and would love to put lots of efforts in this area. He has been producing films more than decades, and his life has turned to another stage---owning a family. He asked himself the purpose of pursuing in images and films. Recalling the voice from the bottom of his heart, he wanted a job that is safe and stable, didn’t need to run over or to stay up overnight.
‘’Production is for those young people!’’ he replied with a hint of smile.
At the turning point, there’s a friend who was wholesaling coffee and leaded him into the world of coffee. From that on, he went on a totally different way of life.
‘’Isn’t coffee like that, bitter and black?’’ This is the general images of coffee for most of the people, and it’s also a question for Pan U. However, not until indulging in this area that he found out there’s knowledge inside. There’s a variety of coffee beans and each kind is different in the way it’s baked. The timing of controlling the fire also influences the flavor greatly. Coffee is like people, each is different in personalities and characteristics. Treating coffee is like interacting with people, it’s full of flexibility and possibility. If it’s too stiff, we’ll get the opposite effect.
Each time he creates the best flavor of one coffee, he will try another one. Not only the customers get weary, we get weary too.’’ With string curiosity and learning capacity, he knows the methods of making more than 40 kinds of coffee. He insists in making low-baked coffee which he’s good at and give the customer a grand new experience. Coffee is like a telepathy, springs up in his turning point, recall with his life plans and the spirit of daring to try. He said firmly that making coffee can be a life-long work. But if coffee showed up too early in his life, he won’t choose to do it.
If being perceptive enough, it’s easy to find that the bar is particularly low. It’s a innovative design from Mr.Pan, in order to interact with the coffee maker more closely. Confronting each other candidly and abandon the virtual barriers, coffee exists for the pure interpersonal relations.
Some people come to the coffee shop for the finest flavor, some for the elegant
atmosphere, some even pass by occasionally and become a loyal customer. These people with different expectation and experience come and gather together, exchange their daily life and develop friendships. Mr.Pan often joins in their topic, ‘’They are regular, each day at a fixed time come stable people, and begin their story here.’’ , he said.
In Marjaro café, people unload heavy burden, they can chat leisurely and exchange their thoughts. Marjaro becomes a ‘’midnight canteen’’, daily things just as round trips, waiting for every visitor to have a taste. ‘’When tasting coffee, it’s like travelling.’’
