I had the opportunity to visit Khairul (better known as K-Man) – the Head Barista at Sarnies Cafe – and learn more about the art of making coffee. Here are the basics on the roles in processing coffee’s rich data - starting with Blending, Roasting, Grinding, and Extraction.

Martini Bar

Like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it is always satisfying to discover new places where you can get a good drink before dinner. Even better when the pot of gold is conveniently located in the heart of Orchard Road.

The martini bar at mezza9 is one of those secret hideouts that only folks in the know head to. There are a few reasons why it has remained hugely popular, and many more reasons why we think you will love it too. First, it is a gorgeous spot to have a drink after work. The glass-enclosed bar on the mezzanine level of Grand Hyatt Singapore provides a view of Scotts Road. Second, with over 30 delicious speciality concocted martinis, it is a shrine that martini lovers can worship.

Third – and the main reason for this post – martini bar at mezza9 is having a more than fantastic promotion that everyone should know about. From Monday to Wednesday 6pm to 9pm, enjoy 9 different martinis at S$9++ each! The usual prices for martinis here range from S$19 to S$28, so the S$9++ offer is really a deal of a century.

From Almond Martini, to Blueberry Citrus made with Effen vodka, blueberry liqueur, and grapefruit juice – each of the nine martini reveals a different statement about you.
