With the title "The World's Best Coffee Shop" given by Telegraph under their belts, you bet the java at The Coffee Academics is set to impress. The highly esteemed coffee joint from Hong Kong has set up its first international outpost in Singapore, serving espresso-based coffees. There are seven specially designed corners in the spacious cafe, each with its own purpose, like Cupping Corner and Hand Brew Bar. We love the Pepper Agave Latte ($7.50) — cafe latte with raw agave nectar that cancels out the bitterness of the coffee, topped with freshly ground black pepper for that extra kick. Also worth returning for is the Globally Inspired Coffee ($8) — original creations from 12 different countries that changes every month (May's Globally Inspired Coffee is a Citrus Espressoda from Portland).
