It requires sweat and toil, and the freedom to get a little dirty on occasion. Tucked away in Changzhou’s central core, Cloud Coffee’s factory—the realm of Chen Liang, an innovator on the cutting edge of China’s coffee scene—is no exception.

A non-descript entrance under perpetual construction welcomes you to an equally nondescript factory park. There is much to suggest industry here but little more. That is, until you step inside. Beyond a modest product display and tinkerer’s lab, the centerpiece of the factory, a massive circular coffee bar steals the show. Behind it a huge, sunlit glass wall frames a spacious production floor teeming with roasters, toiling away on their own with minimal supervision.

Much like his factory, Mr. Chen is quiet and unassuming on the approach. Once warmed up, however, he’s ready to brighten up the conversation with a quick wit and some self-deprecating humor. That lively spark only heats up when one of his unfinished machines poses a technical problem and the tools come out. Following Mr. Chen around his factory floor is a bit like following some movie-made mad scientist around a Hollywood blockbuster. At his command are a horde of automated roasting machines, toiling away at the command of an app on his phone that controls the exact blend and temperature of the final roasting.[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]可想而知,烘烤各种咖啡豆是陈先生生活中不可或缺的一部分。刚开始接触陈先生你会觉得他和他的咖啡工厂一样,安静谦逊,一旦熟络起来后,你又会发现其实他是个风趣幽默的人,尤其谈及机器操作技术以及制作工具的问题,陈先生更是滔滔不绝。跟着陈先生参观他的工坊,就好像跟着一位好莱坞大片里的疯狂科学家。工厂里一大批自动化的烘培机器格外引人注意,陈先生通过操作手机上的一个APP来准确控制不同咖啡豆的烘烤时间和温度。[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]Think of Cloud Coffee’s app as an opportunity to bring true customization to one’s cup of coffee. Instead of heading to a store or your local coffee shop and selecting from amidst an array of blends.

The final result can be shipped straight to the customer’s door, just like a Tmall order. For coffee dependent businesses such as cafés and hotels, the ease of this system and the opportunity to create customized “house blends” are persuasive, but for the Chinese consumer, the system possesses the potential to redefine the nature of how coffee is consumed.[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]最为吸引人的是云咖啡推出的APP提供了可以真正定制一杯属于自己咖啡的机会,并且不需要像通常那样前往商店或当地的咖啡店,从一系列混合商品中选择。现在,通过手机APP顾客可以选择多种想要的咖啡豆,并自定混合方式和烘烤时间,就像可在滴滴出行或优步上打车一样轻松。顾客定制的咖啡最终会像天猫的订单一样直接派送到家中。对于像咖啡馆和酒店这样的售卖或提供咖啡的企业来说,这个APP最大的特点便是它的便利性以及能够真正自定“混合咖啡”的机会。对于中国消费者来说,该系统很有可能重新定义咖啡消费的性质。[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text][Modula id=’74’][/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h3″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true”]From The Beginning…[/x_custom_headline][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]Mr. Chen became increasingly fascinated with roasting coffee beans, shortly after opening his first coffee shop 6 years ago, to the point that his café was described as a “coffee roasting studio”.

The coffee shop was his first major endeavor after five years studying in Germany where he graduated with a business degree. He’d developed an interest in the bitter drink itself while studying abroad in Germany where coffee is consumed with a devotion to rival tea consumption in China. And while Mr. Chen had learned a great deal about the technicalities and complications involved in roasting beans, since opening his shop, when it came to building machines that could accomplish the task with regularity, he was starting from scratch.

So Mr. Chen took his inquiries to the internet. With the aid of online videos, he taught himself everything necessary—from circuitry to welding—to build his first roasting machine.

When asked how difficult this was, Mr. Chen gives a sheepish grin, “I electrocuted myself… a lot.”[/cs_text][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/2″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]在德国学习五年并获得商业学位后,陈先生自主创业,开了一家咖啡馆。在国外,咖啡文化就像中国的茶文化一样,是生活中不可或缺的一部分,尽管没有专门学习过烘焙咖啡豆,但是受国外咖啡文化的熏陶,陈先生在德国留学期间就对咖啡文化十分感兴趣,并且学到了很多烘焙咖啡豆等相关技术。

从开店到自行制造烘焙设备,陈先生踏踏实实从头做起,借助互联网,通过在线视频,从电路焊接开始一步步学起,不断改良完善烘焙设备,终于制造完成了自己的第一台理想烘焙设备。

On the consumption end, the Chinese coffee market is already bigger than Australia, and boasts a 16% year-on-year growth even in the face of a slowing economy that has been putting the brakes on other domestic industries.
