Kurasu Singapore is a four-day-old coffee shop that is hidden within Odeon Towers. Originating from Kyoto, this is the Japanese brand’s first venture in Singapore and the cafe is sharing the venue with District6, a co-working office space.
Their minimalistic design, fragrant coffee aroma and soothing ambiance draw in many creatives and individuals who are able to enjoy some alone time or to catch up on work.
Serving specialty coffee from selected roasters around Japan and Matcha Latte, this is one destination you have to stop by for a morning pick-me-up.
The cafe is already gaining popularity among those who are working nearby. So, we would recommend visiting the cafe before or after lunch hours if you are seeking a quiet environment.
Have your coffee by the floor-to-ceiling glass window as you watch the morning crusade pass by or choose to lounge on the comfortable sofas around the cafe.
Kurasu Singapore brews coffee from All Seasons Coffee in Tokyo and Taoca Coffee from Hyogo. Besides that, they also source coffee beans from Brazil, Colombia and Ethiopia and thereafter, have them roasted by Single O in Australia.
If you are interested to find out more, the friendly baristas are more than willing to exchange and share their coffee knowledge with you.
We went for their Cappuccino (S$5), which was a delightful blend of rich espresso and hot milk to create a strong flavour that is not too harsh for the average person.
If caffeine is not your thing, Kurasu Singapore has another signature drink—Matcha Latte (S$5), whereby the matcha powder is from Morihan, Kyoto.
Their Matcha Latte leans towards the sweeter side, so those who are not a fan of the bitter aftertaste in matcha drinks should enjoy this.
As Kurasu Singapore is currently in soft launch, do note that the menu will be updated again to accommodate new chocolate drinks, baked goods and more.
