Another cafe worth recommending in Beijing is Metal Hands. Just opened this July, this little coffee shop is settled in the busy Wudaoying Hutong, not far from Barista Coffee Roasters. Mr. Ding, the owner of the cafe, has apparently been in the China coffee scene for over 10 years, and is one of the first to dedicate his time to latte art (though he wasn’t in the shop on the day of my visit).

Metal Hands位于五道營,今年7月才開幕。聽說這裏的丁老板在咖啡圈已十幾年,是國內比較早開始玩拿鐵拉花的前輩,而且還是個格外低調的帥哥(不過我沒遇上本人)。

Metal Hands is not big. The elongated space includes a bar on the right, some seats on the left, and an inner corner with skylight. Concrete walls, wooden furniture, and fresh flowers for decoration. It’s not spacious by any means, but quite comfortable nonetheless.

Metal Hands 的店面不大,狹長的空間右邊是咖啡吧台,左邊是一排靠牆的位子,最裡面有頂著天窗、陽光充足的雙人卡座。乾淨的水泥牆、木色調桌椅、還有點綴的鮮花 - 絕對說不上寬敞,卻倒也舒適。

As for why the shop is called Metal Hands, it’s because of this ancient lever coffee machine that Mr. Ding salvaged from his friend’s garage, then promptly remodeled. Looks kind of funky, no?

至于咖啡館爲何叫做 Metal Hands,是因爲用了這台老板從朋友倉庫裏收回來的老式拉杆咖啡機。咖啡機老舊的外殼被拆除後改裝加固,成了現在的酷炫樣子。

Latte, with house-roasted coffee beans. Not too shabby, though the foam wasn’t has fine as what I had from Voyage Coffee the other morning.

自家烘焙拿鐵。不錯,不過奶泡跟之前在 Voyage Coffee 喝到的差了不少。

All in all, a charming little shop. Drop by for a coffee if you are in the area.

總之,一家迷人的小店。如果剛好在附近,不妨來喝一杯。
