Chenggong Township has pure mountain streams, sufficient daylight, and a warm Pacific Breeze. These factors allow the coffee grown in this area to have the qualities of Tropical Island beans. The beans have a rich and thick flavor. More than a decade ago, Chenggong Township farmers began growing coffee in their spare fields. There are currently over 15 hectares of coffee which produces over 7000 kilograms of coffee each year, making it one of Taitung’s unique farm products. Coffee lovers must come and learn about the perfect temperature and grind for each type of coffee. Come to Chenggong Township and participate in the coffee activity where you can roast and grind your beans.
Under the guidance of the coffee master, you can try roasting coffee beans in the coffee bean roaster. It takes just ten minutes to transform raw coffee beans into fragrant and rich roasted beans. The room is filled with a coffee scent. While most coffee shops use grinders to grind the beans, you can learn how to use the tea-mashing technique to grind your beans. Mash your beans into a fine grind and experience the relaxing and satisfying process of making your coffee. As everyone has slightly different strengths, angles, and techniques, every grind will turn out uniquely. The final part of the activity is to brew your coffee. Guests can decorate their drip coffee packets and fill them with the coffee that they just ground to create a special handmade gift. This might be the perfect present for your coffee-loving friends. （Photo Credit：FB@Chenggong Township Farmer’s Association）
