Coffee is a science and a true alchemistic experience when done correctly. Vacuum coffee was invented by a Scottish marine engineer in the 1830/40’s. So you might ask what has this got to do with creativity? Recently the Hario V60 dripper has become more popular and makes a great filter coffee, measure, time, weight and pouring anticlockwise. Even the grind plays a part in the process and like making music it’s the patience, focus and attention to detail that counts.
We have been working with Steve Glencross: DJ, Music producer, and label owner and the organiser of the Sativa dance music events in Edinburgh at the legendary Vaults venue. Steve opened two coffee shops in Edinburgh and has a coffee roasters in the heart of the city under the name Machina; trust me Steve has the knowledge when it comes to coffee and creativity.
We talk a lot about coffee and how it’s essential in the studio when making electronic music and we decided the best method for this would be vacuum and dripper coffee, a slow caffeine release, nothing like the intensity of an espresso inducing creative workflow.
When making vacuum or dripper coffee you are subconsciously preparing yourself for the day ahead using both hemispheres of the brain, creative and logic to make the ultimate brew. It takes 3 and half minutes to make and 5 minutes to cool to a temperature to drink and experience the true flavour of coffee. Filter coffee is not a new concept, but in the studio, we have found you can focus more clearly and complete the task at hand, thus remaining in the creative realm with maximum output.
When you look into traditions such as the Japanese tea ceremony, preparation is everything and this can also be said for music production as we prepare the sounds, modulate and arrange before playing to the listener. I have been demonstrating this method to music students and creatives here in Ibiza with a great response to the filtration method, creativity can be ignited in many ways and I will be sharing these methods on the blog but first if your a lover of good coffee give this a try or contact me for a list of products and preparation methods.
