The ratio of foam to milk is a little off in the cappuccino ($5) but the drink has a good, strong and slightly bitter taste to the coffee. Hojicha latte ($5.50) has a great nutty finish! Also tried the iced latte ($5) on another occasion - very smooth and easily my favourite here.

Expected much much more from this specialty shop - the latte ($5) was far too milky, overwhelming the coffee.

An unexpected find!! The coffee here is superb. Their beans are supplied by Dutch Colony, with a choice between Brazilian and Ethiopian. Opted for the darker roast and both drinks had a clean strong flavour. Wished the flat white ($5) came a little hotter but otherwise it was massive and very well rounded! Iced black ($5.50) is pricey but a popular choice.

Revelry used to be my go-to joint for quality coffee! They use a double ristretto for each cup, rather than a single espresso shot. My most recent flat white ($5) fell a little short of expectations - it was a little too acidic and thin.

First time trying the coffee here and I’m really impressed with how well frothed the milk is! The cappuccino ($4.50) is smooth and fragrant. Would have liked the drink to be serve hotter!

The cup of Magic ($5.20++) here was thinner than most other renditions I’ve tried - their double shot came with as much water. The roast is acidic and a tad bitter.. probably better when paired with their sweet treats!

A really gao cup of kopi bing using Sumatran beans ($3.80, 16 oz)! The coffee is fragrant with a rich milk base. A little expensive for what it is but the drink lasted me hours and maintained its flavour even after all the ice melted!

The flat white ($5) uses their specialty in-house blend! Smooth and surprisingly, mildly sweet with skimmed milk. Gets quite crowded so you’d probably only get to linger over your cup if you avoid lunch hour!

Their coffee is better when drunk in-store, but Olla’s held up pretty well! Opted for magic ($5.50) - it is substantially less milky then their other options with a punchy double shot.

A mediocre cup of flat white ($5.50) - it was lukewarm, too milky and the coffee tasted burnt. They’ve also stopped giving cookies to pair. A pity because I used to enjoy Kara’s coffee!

The Glass Roasters shares a space with Gelatolabo’s third outlet and an upcoming pizzeria! Its drinks are sure to pair well with your other purchases.

Didn’t catch where they obtain their beans from - probably Glyph, which they use at their Faber Drive outlet - but the white ($5.50) boasts of a dark, well-rounded flavour and minimal acidity. Would opt for an upsize or a cold drink the next time as that contains two shots! The double walled glass cup is an ingenious touch - it really helps keep the drink warm for longer

This is a rather expensive cup of flat white ($6.50) but one of the better ones I’ve had in a long while! Made with beans from Chye Seng Huat, the drinks were smooth and rich. Tried the in-house throwback blend with notes of dark chocolate and hazelnut, but found it a little more milky. Much preferred their seasonal mistletoe blend which featured hints of pecan, milk chocolate and black tea!
