You can get more than just a good cup of joe at the Singapore Coﬀee Festival. We’ve curated some of the cool concoctions you’ll want to make a beeline for.
This brew from Percolate Coffee has a nice fizz, with notes of plum and strawberry.
Symmetry’s vodka-based cocktail with espresso and coﬀee liqueur is the perfect mix of bitter and sweet.
Tea, Yakult and strawberry syrup – one of Boba Brew’s most popular drinks.
Check out the iridescent gold specks in Dapper Coﬀee’s Gold Brew.
Expect a bigger caﬀeine buzz at Singapore’s only coﬀee-centric festival, especially with more cafes coming on board this year to show oﬀ their brews. Think big names on the scene like Common Man Coﬀee Roasters, Jewel Coﬀee, and Chye Seng Huat Hardware. But hold up, non-coﬀee drinkers haven’t been sidelined – expect drinks like Dapper Coﬀee’s super-popular Unicorn Tears and Merlion Blood (yes, really), quirky cocktails from Symmetry, and Boba Brew’s freshly made strawberry oolong tea.
Choose a time slot (brunch or sundown), sip your drinks at one of the outdoor wharves of the Marina Bay Cruise Centre, take in the majestic Singapore skyline, and be entertained by live music from specially curated local acts. If you’re not one to sit around and chill, you’ll find lots to hold your attention: watch baristas do battle, attend coﬀee workshops, or take part in some exclusive dining experiences.
