In a search of good coffee? Well, doesn't matter if you're a fan of handcrafted coffee or old fashion kopi-o. And even if you’re not a caffeine lover, there's bound to be something one would enjoy at La Kopi Singapore 2019. We had an eye-opening caffeinated experience at the inaugural La Kopi Singapore event that happened on 25 - 27 January at the Singapore Expo. From hands-on activities, trying out local and foreign coffee roasters and to pair it with local delicacies! We had the chance to sit back, relax and have a cuppa while learning more on the coffee industry and being a part of the community.
Enjoy coffee from familiar names such as Homeground, Coffee Break and Pyroast. We highly recommend trying coffee brewed from Homeground's award-winning Sidamo Ethiopia beans.
It starts off with the fragrance of watermelon, followed by the sweetness of dark red plum and ends off with the lingering taste of black tea.
If espresso isn't your thing, go local with Coffee Break and PYROAST. Coffee Break served traditional favourites such as Nanyang coffee and their best sellers include Sea Salt Caramel Latte, Mint Lime Rose Red Tea and Irish Cream Vanilla Milk.
Pyroast served up handcrafted speciality coffee as well as local signature kopi and teh. If you love the flavours, you can also purchase the beans from them right at the booth. There are more than 15 varieties of freshly roasted beans from different regions available.
For those who felt peckish, there's no way one could go hungry at this event. There’s a wide selection of local delicacies and snacks! We went for the traditional snack, dragon bread candy from Nanyang Flavours. Usually, bread candy is served with peanut filling but here, we had the chance to try sesame and kopi filling!
And if you're looking out for a nice cold dessert, here's one that will let you reminisce your childhood days! Reinvented after an old school favourite, these frozen treats from The Sng Bao Society offers classic flavours such as bandung, teh tarik and contemporary ones such as yuzu and mango pineapple.
If you've missed out on this event, fret not. You can simply visit these coffee roasters and stores in Singapore too. Check out La Kopi Singapore Facebook page for future events!
