In today’s hectic work environment, coffee has become an essential part of our lives. Like most people, we wake up feeling grumpy and prepare for work in a haze of lethargy. But the aroma of coffee will instantly wake us up; always.

Just one sip and the brain starts to run, the eyes brighten, and all at once, you feel ready to take on the day. Being serious coffee nuts, we make it our business to know where to find the best coffee wherever we are. For most of Singapore’s working crowd, it’s the Central Business District (CBD).

Here are 11 of our favourite coffee haunts in Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) where you can drop by for a morning cuppa.

Dean & Deluca New York Store Visit

Dean Deluca NYC

Back in March, the good people at Kitchen Language and Fulford PR invited me to join them on a press trip to visit Dean & Deluca in New York. During that few days, I had an amazing time learning about the brand, and it was a privilege to get a behind-the-scene sneak peek.

Dean & Deluca is a multi-channel retailer of gourmet and speciality foods, premium wines and high-end kitchenware with operations throughout the United States and abroad.

Like what I’ve mentioned in my earlier interview with Justin Seamonds (the president of Dean & Deluca), its international presence is expanding rapidly. Today, you can find the gourmet grocer in many cities including Tokyo, Bangkok, Korea, Turkey, and of course, Singapore (opening on 22nd June).

If you have always heard about but never had the chance to visit Dean & Deluca in New York, let me take you on a store visit!

Whenever my foodie friends travel to New York City, they will visit the flagship Dean & Deluca store at SoHo and stock up on their favourite products.

For those of you who have not heard of the brand, Dean & Deluca is a luxury gourmet grocer which carries a range of artisan gourmet food, wines and kitchenware.

Kitchen Language – the F&B arm of Far East Organisation – is bringing in the iconic New York lifestyle brand to Singapore, with the first flagship store at Orchard Central opening on 22th June.

The good people at Kitchen Language sent me on a trip to New York City for the Dean and Deluca experience, and while I was there, I had the pleasure of chatting with Justin Seamonds, the president of Dean & Deluca. Here are some pretty interesting insights into the Dean & Deluca world.
