Opening at the start of August is local coffee roaster, Quarter Life Coffee. Having been roasting coffee beans for close to two years, they have finally set up a physical storefront for their coffee in Deck at Prinsep!
This quaint and cosy coffee place is tucked away in the streets of the busy Bras Basah neighbourhood, near to schools such as Lasalle, SMU and Nafa. Serving delicious cups of single-origin coffee and cold brews, this is definitely one coffee shop you should visit when you’re in town!
This small container-based cafe is situated in Deck, a modern art space. For those who are not familiar with the Deck, it’s near to Lasalle. So keep a lookout for the big “DECK” scrawled onto a stacked container tower!
The space may be tiny, but it holds an unforgettable rustic charm. We could imagine ourselves having a cup of coffee with a book in hand, spending the day here relaxing and forgetting about the world for a while.
We tried their Iced White (S$6) of which the coffee is made with Rwandan beans. The brew had a bright hint of citrus with an ending note of nuttiness. We even had the smallest tinge of herbal notes. It was a really delicious, smooth cup of coffee that needed no added sugar or syrup.
Each cup of coffee here is crafted with so much passion and it was obvious even after a short chat with a member of the Quarter Life Coffee team. Previously working in the now-defunct Tiny Roaster, the team of 4 were inspired to start their own roastery, focusing on select single-origin beans and their unique flavour notes.
This cosy bunker is truly a must-visit if you’re in the area!
