感受西雅图的咖啡文化(中英文)

      在脑海里,西雅图这个名字最熟悉的地方就是由汤姆.汉克斯主演的《西雅图不眠夜》印象最深。没想到西雅图的咖啡文化也这么出名。有机会区西雅图旅游的朋友,一定要好好感受一下西雅图的咖啡文化:

Seattle's Coffee Culture

It is one o’clock in Seattle. You are walking down the street. A lot of people are outside for lunch. You see a woman. She is holding a white and green paper cup. You see another person. He is also holding a cup in his hands. You see another and another. Everyone has a cup in their hands! What are they all drinking? You smell the Seattle air. It’s coffee!

People in Seattle love coffee. Some say it’s because Seattle has many rainy days and people need coffee to be happy. Others say coffee shops are popular because Seattle people are very laid-back and relaxed.

Coffee shops in Seattle are a lot like teahouses in China. In Seattle, people go to coffee shops to talk to friends, read, play games, work on the computer, or relax. Coffee is an important part of people’s day.

The world’s largest coffee shop chain, Starbucks, first opened in Seattle in 1971. But Starbuck is not the only popular coffee shop in the city. There are other large chains, like Seattle’s Best Coffee, Caffe Ladro, or Tully’s. Seattle also has many small neighborhood coffee shops. Everyone has their favorite.

现西雅图下午一点。你在街上闲逛。很多人都出来吃午饭。你看见一个女人。她手里拿着一个白绿色的纸杯。你又看见另外一个人。他手里也拿着一个杯子。再看其他人,每个人手里都有杯子。他们都在喝什么?闻一闻西雅图的空气——原来是咖啡!

西雅图人喜爱咖啡。有人将这归之于西雅图气候多雨,因此人们需要咖啡来保持心情愉快。也有人认为咖啡馆之所以风行是因为西雅图人生活闲适、惬意。

西雅图的咖啡馆和中国的茶馆很像。在西雅图,人们到咖啡馆与朋友交谈,在那里读书、做游戏,携带电脑工作,或者休息、放松。咖啡是大家一天生活的重要组成部分。

星巴克,这个全球最大的咖啡连锁店,1971年首先在西雅图开张。不过西雅图知名的咖啡馆不止星巴克一家。还有其他大型连锁店,比如西雅图极品咖啡,Caffe Ladro和Tully’s。另外这里也有许多小型社区咖啡馆。每个人都有自己的最爱。
