My morning transcended from great to awesome with this tasting flight.

What a marvelous combination of good beans, skilled preparation, hippy place and hearty interaction.

Pop in, enjoy a cuppa as friendly Bob and team chat with you and share about the coffees and the well-thought-through space.

Personally really enjoyed the coffee here. Well balanced. The mocha was really chocolaty - my partner declared it was the best Mocha ever. The secret? Specially sourced Peruvian Drinking Chocolate.

The friendly staff recommended that we gave their Soul Plane (piccolo + single shot) a go, because it best showcases the flavours of their espresso. I second that 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ The first thought that came to mind when I sipped on their espresso was “mmm this tastes like orange mocha”. Their exceedingly complex shot was very bold, boasting very distinct notes of citrus and chocolate, with a solid fragrant crema and a good hit of acidity too. I was a little surprised that their piccolo turned out rather acidic, considering how bold their shot was; but it was still a very well-pulled cuppa and I’ve got no complaints. I would suggest going for a black to fully appreciate the vibrant flavours of their espresso.

Opened during the Lunar New Year period, Geylang Drip City is designed to be an edgy and cool respite from the outside world, while at the same time adding a unique touch to the area’s community with their food and drinks. Who knows that in future, this concept will travel to different parts of the island and we might even see Serangoon Drip City or Bugis Drip City.

Dropped by the new Geylang Drip City fairly recently; a new cafe which had opened its doors along Geylang Road — also the very first that operates within the neighbourhood, which makes it a really interesting destination given how the location seemingly lacks hipster options in general despite its status of being a foodie’s haven.

Having had brunch earlier at two other locations, we decided to simply opt for a dessert item here to go along with our cuppa. The Cocoa Butter Kisses is an item listed in the “ Sweet Life” section of the menu; described as a “chocolate pudding in a can”. Whilst sounding rather simple, the Cocoa Butter Kisses did not fail to impress with its chocolatey notes — rich, luscious and smooth, the chocolate pudding was dense and creamy, but with a strong note of cocoa whilst being adequately sweetened. Liked how decadent the pudding was; all that without causing the throat to heat up — some pretty quality chocolate that is used here. There is also attention to detail right there for the dessert; the sea salt flakes sprinkled atop cuts through the chocolate pudding with a slight hint of saltish-ness which also provided some contrast, while chocolate shavings are included just to provide some aesthetic to the otherwise plain pudding.

Geylang Drip City is also a space pretty focused on coffee education — the baristas are more than happy to provide their patrons with information of the coffee beans they use, from where the beans are sourced, their flavour profile, and the roasting process of the beans; all that only possible with passion and enthusiasm for the craft. Geylang isn’t quite the neighbourhood known for specialty coffee given how it has always lacked such options despite the third-wave coffee movement having spread throughout almost all parts of the island by now, but Geylang Drip City is a destination for coffee lovers and enthusiasts alike for a well-pulled cuppa and well-executed filter coffees, whilst offering a limited hot food menu and dessert menu to go along.
