The Better Beans

The Better Beans

From coffee beans to cup. Coffee brewing is an art and a science in its own right.

Need fuel for a tough week ahead? Old Hen cold brews are light, creamy (those with milk) and you can smell the coffee aroma. Coffee wise it is relatively strong while not being too acidic.

An interesting aspect to this place is their roasting gallery that had a fully automated coffee roaster and a display of coffee beans from various countries. Opting for my usual, I had my latte brewed with their house blend "Anti Matter" which was a dark roast. It was more full bodied but wasn't as acidic as I thought it would be; and it had a nice chocolate and nutty aftertaste. Another joint to get my fix!

One bottle to go! Brewed using their own house blend, the coffee was deliciously creamy and nutty with a slight sweetness to it.

Definitely adding this to my list of favourite cold brews. Rich with a chocolatey note and strong coffee taste coming through.

A tad pricey but decent cup of latte that was slightly acidic with a nutty tone

First of its kind in Singapore. Watch Ella the robot make your coffee and there is a transparent screen that displays messages on the orders. Taste wise the cappuccino was not much different from the usual as it maintained the same consistency and quality. Good for anyone who needs a quick cup of joe anytime, But if you like some customisation (i.e. double shot, larger cup), latte art and a personal touch, artisanal baristas will still be the go to. ☕🤖

The iced coffee was smooth, creamy and slightly sweetened from their secret recipe milk with hints of caramel. Really good as a thirst quencher and perk-me-up for a hot workday afternoon.

Great coffee scent though the taste of the coffee was light with its aftertaste being short-lived. Would have preferred a richer and bolder flavour of the roasted coffee.

One of the top cold brews on my list (and generally their coffee is 👍). As its name suggest, the cold brew was more milky in comparison, smooth and slightly sweetened with delicious tones of coffee in each sip. Loving it!

Need a refuel? How about coffee? Kafve has an UPSIZE version of their cold brew. Light and refreshing to give you a boost for each day. Lasted me for 1 week of WFH.

The bundle of six comprised of 2 x white cold brew coffee, 2 x matcha milk, 1 x chocolate goodness and 1 x chia seed honey yuzu. The best of the lot was the chia seed honey yuzu - it had a good balance of sweet and tanginess. Not forgetting the natural benefits of chia seeds. It was refreshing with every sip. The rest were average as they were light and was not as rich as I would have preferred. Coffee was mild with low acidity level.

Nothing beats the heat than a bottle of cold coffee. Medium bodied with a tad of acidity but with balanced flavour. Get them delivered in a pack of six.

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
