We are always looking for opportunities to slow down in our busy lives. “Lifestyle” has changes to an action than a slogan or a title on magazine covers. Through visiting exhibitions, go to coffee shops, or traveling, we transformed “Lifestyle” from a noun into a verb. This time, we would like to present you an online coffee exhibition tour. To find out what to discover in our daily lives and to achieve a slow enjoyment lifestyle attitude.
Pack your bag and follow us; this time we do not need any navigation or map. In case, you smell the Coffee aroma, this is right; we have updated our internet browsing system to 3.0 that includes a sensor of five Senses. Enjoy.
Kaffee Rösterei Viktualienmarkt
Kaffee Rösterei is founded in autumn 2014. I have been here several times, either alone or with friends. Kaffee Rösterei offers an exact friendliness to the customers which gives a comfortable feeling. In a specific range of contact, they supply smiles with coffee aroma. Here is a relay station; people come and re-adjust breathing to get refresh again. Kaffee Rösterei roasts and grinds coffee beans by themselves; the coffee drinks they offer are strong yet mellow. It seems to remind us that sometimes it is bitter at the beginning, and sometimes it is sweet after swallowing; moreover, it will be even much better to have one piece of the Almond cake. They had only the front standing area; now they fixed the place behind the coffee booth to offer more space for guests.
We all look for “perfect” coffee shops; not too many people but not deserted, not too noisy but a background to cover the conversation from every body. Moreover, a good aroma of coffee to satisfy our breathing. The most important is, providing just exact aesthetic sense to elevate our sense of superiority.
位在穀物市場（Viktualienmarkt）的立式咖啡庭Kaffee Rösterei是2014年秋天才開幕。幾回在不同季節不同時段，不管自己來或是有伴，咖啡館那種帶有距離的親切友善感在城市裡以無形的空氣替來訪者劃出一份自在；在剛剛好的接觸範圍內，提供帶有咖啡香味的微笑。這裡像是慕尼黑的中繼站，在流動數量與速度都以極為快速的穀物市場（Viktualienmarkt）內，給人以不同頻率的運轉方式重新調整呼吸。Kaffee Rösterei自己烘豆研磨，提供的咖啡醇濃厚重，彷彿在這小段美好短暫的時空中仍不忘提醒著，人生有它的苦、也有吞嚥下的甘美；如果再來一份杏仁香的糕點，其實說到底也沒有那麼糟糕。原本只有庭下前方的站立位，前些日子把後方的位置打理出來，添上綠漆、放上農作木箱、再把咖啡麻布袋堆上充當墊背；儘管是在戶外卻也充滿溫度。

OCCAM DELI is located in Münchner Freiheit, a lively area in Munich; it faces to the morning sunlight and opens its arms to welcome us with many delicious cakes in the entrance area.
Bright and modern interior design, the designer used the original texture wood to bring us a comfortable feeling; it is also the sense that OCCAM DELI offers to their customers. The first group visits here is composed of the young mothers who live in the neighborhood. Holding big cups of Cappuccino and enjoying their breakfast, sharing their weekend time with families and planning for the next weekend. It is such a lovely image. Then, office workers come for a light lunch and take expresso before they head back to their work. It does not take long, fashion bloggers, university students, businessmen and women or housewives come afterwards here coincidentally. Here becomes a public saloon; and the waiters are the hosts to take care of everyone.
So myself, I play many roles and come at different times; however, my only choice is a cup of mint tea with honey. Moreover, all people who came and had the conversation with me that filled my heart.
在慕尼黑熱鬧Münchner Freiheit街區裡，稍稍側身站在角邊，迎起頭剛好對上早晨的日光；出了地鐵站，背著光徒步來到OCCAM DELI。推開門有座紅絨布簾，伸手撥開一整桌誘人糕點堆起眼前；接待員尚未打聲招呼，甜品們已列隊歡迎。
寬敞明亮的現代感設計，以大量不過多加工的原感木頭帶來溫暖的視覺感受； 這正是OCCAM DELI的待客之道。早上第一批客人是推著娃娃車、身著休閒裝束的鄰居年輕媽媽們；捧著大杯卡布奇諾以刀叉吃早餐，分享週末時光與下個週末的計劃，這是一幅好時光的寫照，畫面輕輕撒著一層金色的光芒、洋溢著幸福的氣氛。緊接著，午休時間外出享用午餐的上班族出現佔領大半座位；一份輕食套餐後再來杯濃縮咖啡，壓抑下飽嗝卻遮掩不住臉上飽餐一頓的滿足。沒有多久，時尚部落客、下課後的大學生、談生意的男人女人，還有逛街累了的家庭主婦似乎約好了一起出現；這裡成了公眾交誼廳，侍者成了招待的主人在桌與桌間滑著舞步善盡職責。
Feilitzschstrasse 15, 80802 Munich
Trachtenvogl, one of the current trendy coffee shops in Munich. The two cassette sitting areas on the left and right side of the entrance are the best comfortable VIP seats; take a book and you simply fall into your own world. A long table is in the front area; although to sit with someone you do not know, it connects you to the most closed strangers who are beside. Go onward, a living room is in the back space. There is no furniture in pairs that might come from Nordic. However, those 70’s casual and simple style furniture put a relaxing atmosphere together. Each corner has a different feeling that let you expect something to happen; maybe when you turn your head, you might see John Lennon was right behind you. Trachtenvogl is just like a home of a friend where you can always visit and expect to get warmth that you need.
If you are too late for a brunch on weekends, you will have to wait until the afternoon tea time. German white sausages, healthy breakfast set or farm breakfast set are made to satisfied you. Furthermore, do not forget one cup of cappuccino with rich milk foam. Does it sound exciting, if I say, here you see the most stylish gentlemen in town?
It is not hard to find a coffee shop; however, it is not easy to find one that you love. It is not challenging to get one cup of good coffee; however, it is not easy to slow down and enjoy the time with yourself.
Reichenbachstr. 47, 80469 Munich
In Cafiko, there has a special light and shadow, and it draws you into it; for example, the old and year-round used wood furniture. It is just like the Harry Potter’s secret 9 ¾ Platform that gives you a way to go to the other amazing world. Not deliberately, Cafiko has a beautiful and smooth interior quality. There is a seat that is at the end of the entrance; above, there is a bookcase. This area where has the dark red wallpaper looks charming under the spotlight. Instead of a coffee aroma, here you smell more a delicious food flavor. The proprietress has half of Indian origin; she loves food and enjoys her life. She cooks different meals every day, and the menu shows on a board that is above the coffee bar.
Coffee shop owners try to attract crowds with various design styles or decorations; artistic style, modern industrial sense or Japanese zakka style. However, it is more interesting when an owner puts his taste into the design. Then, it becomes a unique yet perfect coffee house.

Man Versus Machine
It is not easy to present a true personality of a coffee shop when there are many flowery details. Somehow, Man Versus Machin offers you a simple place only to enjoy coffee. On this day, there was a man who wore a Samurai hairstyle and had big beard serviced coffee for us. No verbosity, he asked us what to order and then prepared our drinks quietly behind the bar. How he cooked coffee looked piously; it seemed he was praying. After testing the coffee, he then serviced us.
It was not a crowded day; after I let myself sitting down, a relaxed feeling swept me. Finally, one time I was not in a hurry and I could enjoy my coffee. There was one sentence is written on the bar, “Life can be bitter, you coffee should not be.” That day, my coffee, the golden sunlight and the autumn breeze comforted me.
過多的天花亂墜，容易模糊了咖啡館本身焦點；Man Versus Machine簡單地提供喝杯咖啡的場所，中性乾淨不花俏。吧台後方的男人這天是位綁著日本武士頭的大鬍子，沒有贅言沒有過多的招呼，問了想喝的飲料便靜靜地在後頭準備。拿出壓力濾杯 ，慢慢地分成三次注入熱水沖泡；專注的神情與沖泡的姿勢彷彿祈禱般，讓琥珀一般玉液傾流而出，經由試喝，無誤，這才端送至面前。
