From the Burpple community

Following their newest outlet opening in Thomson Plaza, this coffee chain brews up a mean up of joe to perk up your mornings! Have a pick of the classic Cafe Latte ($5), Japanese Matcha Latte ($5.50) or sip on their take on local kopi with the Ice Sumatra Kopi ($3.80). If you're up for a sweeter note, their Latte Gula ($5.20) will surely hit the spot with the addition of gula melaka to a classic brew.

Those who have been following me for quite a while now will know that I am all about supporting local home-grown establishments for the most part — while I have previously dismissed Huggs as more of a commercial brand meant for the office workers of The Central Business District with ready-to-eat hot food where they can be simply popped into the oven before serving, Huggs’ latest outlet (i.e. Huggs Collective) at Thomson Plaza is everything that I stand for. The Thomson Plaza outlet is probably their biggest outpost thus far — and for good reason; apart from just serving up wraps, cakes and beverages, their space at Thomson Plaza also sees Huggs collaborating with other local brands such as Denny Gelato, Mr. Bucket Chocolaterie and Commune etc. for a retail-cum-cafe concept where one can shop for items ranging from pens containing germinating seeds to yoga mat spritzs amongst other items, and enjoy the food and beverages from other local establishments all under one roof. There is also a Member’s Lounge exclusive for Huggs’ Rewards members with charging points, WiFi access and private telephone booths that seems like a space for some productive work to be done.

A friend who works near a Huggs have always mentioned about their coffee. On first sight, the Kopi seems a little pricey at $2.60 for a “Tall” cup — almost double the price of what one can get for a standard cup of Nanyang Kopi served at a local non-air conditioned coffeeshop; the bigger bummer is how those who prefers the iced option can only go for the “Grande” size with a price tag of $3.90. That being said, those doubts are were answered when I took a sip; their Kopi is probably one of the silkiest and smoothest Nanyang Kopi around — that smoothness almost akin to that of Kopi Gu You without the grease, or perhaps more comparable to the HK-style Milk Coffee without being particularly dilute in terms of flavour. Those who prefer their coffee a little sweeter can opt for the original level of sweetness (the baristas here do ask patrons about their preferred sweetness), though I would suppose that the “less sweet” version may suit me a little better; something which I might try the next time I am here.

While I was one who have easily just assumed Huggs as one of those commercial coffee places that lacked soul and character, Huggs Collective at Thomson Plaza was able to break that mould that formed in my head — a space that is created for the community be it simply for their patrons, or for local businesses alike. Coupled with their stellar coffee (at least we were impressed by their Kopi), it is little wonder how Huggs Coffee is filled with patrons even just slightly before their closing at 9pm with young families and middle-aged folks alike — armed with their beverages be it a Latte or a Kopi, getting their dose of Huggs before the day ends. Guess Huggs is probably where I would get my cuppa next time when I need one and pass by one now; and it would definitely be for their Kopi too!

both drinks were good but perhaps a bit too sweet!!
