Kyu Coffee Bar—a new kid on the block—is strategically located right at the entrance of Prudential Tower in Raffles Place.
The three-week-old takeaway speciality coffee kiosk’s wooden frames instantly reminded us of Kitty Burns in Melbourne. CBD dwellers in need of a highly-caffeinated perk-me-up should drop by Kyu Coffee Bar for a quick energy boost.
We all need that quick pick-me-up, especially when work days can be so draggy. If you happen to work around One-North, you are in luck because there is a cosy cafe there that serves pretty decent coffee!
Envy Coffee is a 5-minute walk away from One-North MRT station, nestled in the office district of Fusionopolis. Because of its convenient location, it can get rather busy during lunch hour but guess what? You can make reservations prior to your visit. Otherwise, you can simply order your beverage for takeaway.
Tucked away in the Yio Chu Kang heartlands is newcomer Prodigal Roasters, an independent specialty coffee shop that serves caffeinated beverages to nearby residents and basically anyone who loves a good cuppa.
The tiny cafe’s location might seem relatively obscure but is actually easily reachable within an eight-minute stroll from Yio Chu Kang MRT. So, is it worth visiting?
Previously located along Beach Road, Candour Coffee—a Melbourne-inspired specialty coffee shop—has shifted to 72 Duxton Road and it is a spot that all coffee lovers have to check out. The minimalistic cafe directly imports their beans from Dukes Coffee Roasters and Market Lane Coffee. For those not the in the know, these two roasteries hail from Melbourne and are exceptionally popular for their high-quality blends.
Melburnian coffee aside, Candour Coffee’s menu also features a selection of MAN CHA teas, wholesome savouries, delectable sweet treats and alcoholic drinks! We dropped by one weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of their cuppas.
Heading up to level 2 of 73 Amoy Street to Dapper Coffee was a tiny setback, especially after trudging through Singapore’s humid weather. But the cosy space made up for the “hike”, and we spent an idyllic afternoon at the cafe over great coffee.
The swanky interior resembles a cool British pub. The coffee aroma that filled the air was alluring and we were thankful for the good range of different coffee to choose from.
Let’s see what the hype about Dapper Coffee is all about.
Coffee-lovers would be no stranger to this name – Dutch Colony Coffee Co. This specialised coffee house has two outlets in Singapore – at Pasarbella and Frankel Avenue.
Since its opening, we’ve visited the Frankel Avenue outlet a few times and definitely loving it! The interior is lovely and casual, perfect to relax over some coffee while catching up on a latest book, and to simply stay away from the world.
Dutch Colony Coffee Co. at Frankel Avenue is surely one great coffee haunt in the East of Singapore.
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.
The Coffee Academics has opened its first outlet in Singapore at Scotts Square. If you have been to Hong Kong, chances are that you have either seen or heard of The Coffee Academics, voted one of the best coffee shops in the world by international publications such as Vogue, CNNGo and Buzzfeed.
The Coffee Academics’ full flagship store in Singapore is slated to open early December 2015 at Scotts Square. Meanwhile, it has set up a pop-up kiosk just outside their soon-to-be-opened permanent location. And by the way, The Coffee Academics sits within the premise of the new OnPedder, which takes up the entire level 2 of Scotts Square.
