The 7 cold brews provided a much needed caffeine fix while working from home. A whole range of flavours available, including caffeine free taro latte and chamomile. We preferred the unsweetened black coffee for its slightly acidic and nutty flavour, and floral chamomile tea. The others leaned towards the sweeter and creamier side, with the taro latte reminding us of Potong yam ice cream, and the matcha tasting more of floral green tea.

Aromatic and nutty coffee that’s on the stronger rather than milkier side

Adorable 3D latte art ☺️

Always been a fan of their 2D and 3D latte art. While today’s 2D art was less detailed and impressive than previous visits, their cute designs never fail to bring a smile to everyone’s faces. Such meticulous intricacy also came at no added cost and a relatively short wait time: ~15 mins for 2D and ~30min for 3D foam.

Beyond the aesthetics, the drinks were adequately enjoyable. The flat white ($5), made using @yahavakoffee beans, was smooth and fragrant. We opted for zero honey for their (honey) matcha latte ($6), and enjoyed the rich, earthy matcha notes, although it was a tad powdery. The iced caramel latte ($6.50) could do with stronger coffee bitterness to balance against the sweet caramel.

Their coffee was smooth and fragrant with deep nuttiness and a lingering dark chocolate aroma. It’s made from an Ubuntu blend including specialty grade single origin coffees sourced from sustainable farms in Uganda, Brazil and Mexico. They use steamed creamy Hokkaido milk in their coffee which gives a nice balance to their double shot espresso.

Love the ambience and vibes of this cafe. They offer coffee samples which is really helpful for deciding which brew to get. We fell in love with Kayon (4.5 ⭐️) which used Ethiopian beans. It had a rich dark chocolate cherry aroma perfumed with refreshing grape and blueberry. The sample cup was perfectly extracted such that it was smooth and easy to drink without any sharp acidity or bitterness. In contrast, we were disappointed with our pourover (3 ⭐️) order that used Colombia Gaitana beans. It tasted under-extracted and overly sour. The unique notes of sugar cane, fresh figs, and mandarin orange that piqued our interest were no where to be found. But that didn’t stop us from purchasing a coffee bag home 😂.

Flat white ($4) ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
Matcha ($5) ⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️
🍴Newly opened at @foodfolks.sg at Lau Par Sat, #runescoffee is offering 1-1 off all drinks from now till the end of the year which made this highly affordable. They use single shot for their coffee which made it lighter & more milky than most (personally suiting me as I prefer lower caffeine but might not suit those who prefer stronger coffees). There were elements of chocolate and sweet-sour berry notes, which when paired with the milk, made for a smooth and enjoyable cup.

Separately, the matcha latte was rich in classic bitter aroma and we liked that it was unsweetened. However, it was quite powdery which left a dry aftertaste and we would have preferred it smoother and creamier. The kind staff also indulged our request for ‘dirty matcha’ by passing over a single coffee shot for us to experiment and we would say... probably best to stick with the classic matcha 😂

🍴This new coffee place originating from Marrakech channels TWG vibes and made for a chill afternoon. It offered over 200 coffee choices, and after much scrutiny and deliberation over their intriguing and whimsical-sounding options, we settled on a light flavoured coffee.

𝐒𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐟 𝐒𝐮𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫 - “Reminiscent of an afternoon of berry picking, this delightful melange is ripe with wild strawberries balanced by Chantilly cream and hints of chocolate.” We enjoyed the complexity of this coffee that smelled and tasted almost dessert-like. True to description, we could discern the floral, berry, and chocolate notes. However, once the coffee cooled down, the berry notes were more subdued and we found it tasting more like a hazelnut-flavoured coffee. We most enjoyed the coffee in pure form, and found that whilst adding the accompanying cream provided depth, it muted the unique notes. We were admittedly fascinated by the ability to freshly grind vanilla beans into our drink, albeit this was more smoke and mirrors - it did not enhance the flavour and the coarse and dry grounds made for a somewhat odd texture 😅

Ouyang latte ($6)
Timeless yuan yang ($6.50)
⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
🍴 Offering speciality beans from SEA & China, we went with today’s bean of Yunnan Ouyang. Timeless yuan yang is still my favourite drink here with the balanced mix of coffee from a double ristretto shot, and earl grey (from the earl grey ice ball). It was highly enjoyable with the milk providing a creamy element, and the floral notes and aromatic tea from the earl grey becoming stronger as the ice ball melts. Also enjoy that the taste of this drink changes in subtle, interesting ways with each sip. The latte was easy to drink with a lasting fragrance. There was a nice balance of chocolate-y notes and hint of cherry, although personally would have preferred for a stronger cherry/ floral element to balance out the chocolate.
⚠️ There is an ongoing flash deal for Iced Timeless Yuan Yang at $3.50 on #shopbackgo). This social enterprise is also not just an ordinary cafe, having a social mission of empowering persons with special needs through coffee making.

The coffee is well-balanced and very smooth, making it very easy to drink as it is not overly bitter or acidic. The flavours are not as strong or rich as others but it wins in its simple lighter aromas. Do note that there is only two small tables with seats outside so it’s likely you’ll have to wait / be prepared to takeaway your coffee
