Q. 이탈리아 정통 에스프레소를 판매하게 된 계기가 궁금합니다. - 평소에 커피를 좋아하던 저는 달콤한 라떼 위주로 마시곤 했습니다. 그러던 중, 우연히 맛본 에스프레소의 매력에 빠지게 되었습니다. 더욱 많은 분들과 에스프레소의 맛을 함께 나누고 싶은 마음에 카페 운영을 시작했습니다.

Q. I am curious about how you began to sell authentic Italian espresso. - I've always liked coffee. I used to drink sweet lattes mostly. Meanwhile, I had a chance to taste espresso and fell in love with it. I opened a cafe to share the taste of espresso with more people.


Q. 외국인, 한국인 손님에게 추천하는 메뉴를 각각 소개해주세요. - 가장 인기 있는 에스프레소 메뉴이기도 한데요, 외국 분들에겐 부드럽고 달콤하게 드실 수 있는 ‘카페 브라노’를 추천하고 싶습니다. 한국 분들의 입맛에는 ‘초콜릿 티’와 ‘카페 엘그레’의 달콤한 맛이 어울릴 듯합니다.

Q. Please introduce each menu you recommend to foreign and Korean customers. - I recommend 'Café Brano' for foreigners since it is smooth and sweet. It is also the most popular espresso menu. The sweet taste of 'Chocolate Tea' and 'Cafe Lgre' seems to appeal to Koreans.


Q. 식당의 손님들과 <Incheon Now> 독자분들에게 전하고 싶은 말이 있다면. - 아직 생소하실 수 있지만, 에스프레소도 편안하고 맛있게 즐길 수 있는 커피라는 점을 말씀드리고 싶습니다. 편안한 마음으로 찾아와 주세요. 언제나 즐거운 마음으로 커피 한잔 대접하겠습니다.

Q. Is there anything you would like to say to the customers at the restaurant and the readers of <Incheon Now>? - It may still be unfamiliar, but I would like to tell you that espresso is a coffee you can enjoy comfortably and deliciously. Please come feeling comfortable. I will always treat you with a cup of coffee gladly.
