7 Best Cold Brew Coffees in Singapore – The New ‘It’ Drink

Dutch Colony Cold Brew 2

Cold brew coffee is the new ‘It‘ drink. Trust us when we say that we are onboard the Cold Brew Express as well. Cold brew coffee is made by slow extraction of coffee using only cool (not hot or warm) water over a long period of time, averaging 2 to 24 hours (usually).

This process intensifies the flavour of the coffee beans used. Because of this, many baristas choose to use a light roast coffee as opposed to a dark or full roast, as the latter can be very bitter once the whole cold brewing process is done.

Most of the baristas we talked to from these cafes also told us that they prefer using a single origin instead of a blend for the same reason. Here are 7 Best Cold Brew Coffees in Singapore that are a cut above the rest.

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Cold Brew


Using a blend of beans from Ethiopia and Sidamo, this is actually one of the only cold brews we had that is a blend and has a higher acidity, which we actually prefer in this case. This blend is very light and boasts a touch of sweetness within a medium body. Chye Sen Huat Hardware’s version is very very easy to drink.

Cold Drip Coffee


Here, we had the Cold Drip (S$5), which is essentially a cold brew coffee. It was served to us in a smaller sized cup than usual, simply because of its intense flavours. We loved the robust and very concentrated flavours of this, and it was similar to downing a double shot of espresso with this. Acidity was low and the coffee was not overly bitter – something everyone can enjoy for sure.

Dapper Gold Cold Brew


We ordered the Gold Cold Brew (S$10) here at Dapper Coffee. Besides the gold ‘gimmick’, the flavours of this cold brew was really pleasant, and it certainly kept us wide awake for the entire day ahead.

Cold Brew - Dutch Colony


This was one of our favourites for two reasons – the great coffee and the cute presentation. The barista had also mentioned that they used single origin for their cold brew coffee, resulting in a taste that is not overly intense nor diluted. Just very smooth and very drinkable.

Cold Brew


This is a classic favourite. Anyone who has been to Old Hen Coffee Bar has most likely already had it before. Available in black, and white, this cold brew is no doubt one of the all-time favourites. It is also lighter and milkier as compared to the others we have tried.

Oriole White Cold Brew


Their Taisho Cold Brew (S$6 Black, S$7 White) is an in-house cold brew and we liked that it actually tasted more intense than it looked when it was served to us. We went for the white instead. The coffee was spot on with a smooth taste despite the intensity.

Toby's Estate


Toby’s Estate is a favourite of many, and we were all excited to try the Cold Brew (S$6) here. Because cold brew can be a little too concentrated for some, they served theirs with ice cubes. Toby’s Estate nailed theirs. We were told that they use a light roast single origin Ethiopian beans for this drink to create the splendid, well-balanced flavour.
