TYS Sunstar, a team who brings creative projects to life- comes into collaboration with the Times Literature Award and Baiwei Coffee, creating the “TYS Super Coffee Double Champion Gift Collection”. This collaboration begins as a sponsored project, hoping to revive the passion and appreciation for both coffee and literature. The combination and pairing of coffee and literature is one of the small but precious pleasures of life. This project hopes to open eyes to Taiwan’s Local Literature, Coffee and the fantastic combination of the two, experiencing the flavours of life.
The collaboration also includes a Literary Coffee Mug, a branded traditional ceramic mug covered with different literary classic quotations, sentences and thought-provoking writings. Amongst many quotes and excerpts related to coffee and written in poems or stories by writers throughout history; the largest displayed excerpts are “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons” as well as “I measured my life with a coffee spoon” from ‘The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock’, published in 1915 by the renown British Poet, T.S Elliot. Elegantly expressing the idea behind this project, this mug is the perfect conversation starter and a small piece in daily life, a reminder of all the languages, perspectives and ideas that surround us each and every day.
Some other quotes and excerpts engraved include:
“Don’t stir away the warmth out of your coffee; drink it.” – Kate Chopin
“Coffee makes us more solemn, more grave and more philosophical.’ – Jonathan Swift
“Ah, that is the perfume in which I take delight in; when they roast coffee near my house, I hasten to open the door to take in all the aroma.” – Jean Jacques Rousseau
The coffee bean roasts are sourced from Zhuowu Mountain Coffee Farm, situated in the clouds at 1,200 meters in the mountains of Alishan, Chiayi. These beans are grown naturally and comfortably with space to roam and flourish. This is an environment where the temperature is at extreme opposites night and day, cultivating the depth and richness of the bean. After harvesting the beans, Zhuowu Farm uses a unique method of rinsing the beans with low temperature wild natural spring water. This one detail, is an additional 80-108 hours longer than the typical methods used to wash beans and it is because of these painstakingly caring and thoughtful methods that Zhuowu Farm is able to create the gentle, mellowing caressing flavours fit to represent Taiwan’s coffee on an international scale. Additional beans added to the Zhuowu Roasts for depth and a unique palate in this project are also sourced from places such as South America, Central America, Africa and Asia.
Time Literature has provided a platform and stage for extraordinary talent for 42 years and Baiwei Coffee has a team of SCA Professional Roasters and Brewers, winning the International Coffee Bidders in Specialty Coffee Championship. There is no better collaboration on this project to infuse and bring to you, only the most excellent forms of literature as well as coffee. TYS Sunstar, Time Literature and Baiwei Coffee hope to allow the idea of coffee and a book to bring comfort and a sense of ritual into people’s homes.
Following the idea of New Poems, Prose, Film, Television Novel and Newspaper Literature as the four Literary Award theme, this collection is a selection of unique and exclusively flavoured beans. Roasted to pair with the scent and emotions based off of these Literary themes, the collection is also cleverly thought through, mimicking books and designed as “A Collection of Winning Works of the 42nd Times Literature Awards”.

A sweet and refreshing poem of jasmine fragrance, paired with the heady scent of coffee. This roast is similar to an aromatic Earl Grey tea with well rounded palate. Sweet and peachy, followed by a note of longan fragrance, this roast is akin to the idea of spring and poetry, a symphony of flowers and butterflies and the soft emotion of a modern poem.

Flavour: Nuts, Creams, Sugar
Profile: Aroma 7.8, Flavour 7.8, Acidity 5, Aftertaste 8.3, Mellowness 8
Origins: Zhuowu Mountain, Alishan Township + South America
This roast is not a floral profile but instead a strong and warm aroma, reflecting the personality and flow of a free prose; accompanied by the taste of cream melting under the sun. The flavour of sugar is hinted with a pattern of nuttiness, blending seamlessly to create a velvety texture, leaving an aftertaste that is soothing and smooth.
Theme and Flavour Profile: Film and Television Novels – Emotions of Joy, the Mundane and Sorrow. Life is of many flavours
Flavour: Orange, Passion Fruit, Stone Fruit

Origins: Zhuowu Mountain, Alishan Township + Africa
A cup of this roast will greet the sense with a citrus scent that fills the mind. Like the intense and wild story of a novel, this flavour sweeps away the leading note before returning back to a calm and natural taste. Beginning with a nutty aroma, the sweet and sour tartness of passion fruit lingers on the tongue. The milky note of a nutty aroma follows, allowing for a soothing up and down rhythm, such as the rhythm of life and the memories made.

Origins: Zhuowu Mountain, Alishan Township + Central America
Every aspect of life can be documented in a cup of coffee, a bit bitter and keeps the mind awake. But like in life, there are the chocolate notes, rich and full of flavour. The taste of this roast hints at the sweetness of life in the gentle form of caramel, smoothly glossed with the thick and mellow cocoa flavour and the wonderful bitterness of coffee.
