Coffee is a very popular beverage that is drank by nearly 400 billion people around the world annually. Whether it is a simple cup of coffee from local coffee shops, or higher priced ones from branded coffee stores, most people must get their daily routine of coffee, before they can go about their daily activities.
Coffee is derived from beans of the coffee plant, that can be found in many regions of the world such as South America, Africa and Asia. The top 5 exporters of coffee in 2019 were Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia, Indonesia and Ethiopia, respectively. In fact, Brazil has been the top producer and exporter of coffee for the last 150 years!
Singapore is also no exception when it comes to coffee lovers, and the vast number of coffee outlets there. As of 2017, there are over 1,200 registered coffee stores in the tiny state alone! With its high popularity, let’s look at some great coffee stores to order your daily dose of caffeine in Singapore.
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) was originally opened by Herbert Hyman more than 50 years ago, in 1968 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Herbert believed in serving only the finest quality coffee to his customers, and it is this principle that is practised in virtually every CBTL outlet today.
In 1996, CBTL opened its first store at Scotts Shopping Centre, in Singapore. Since then, it has expanded to over 50 branches in various accessible areas from business districts, popular shopping malls, to even heartland regions. Each and every CBTL outlet has Halal certificates, catering to the mass Muslim population of over one million people in Singapore.
Apart from their popular coffee products, CBTL is also famous for their wide range of ice blended, chocolate and tea drinks . Some of the local favourites include the Double Chocolate Latte, Iced Moroccan Mint Tea Latte, Iced Blended Mocha, and so much more.
And to complete your meal, you can order their wide selection of sandwiches, salads, pasta, pastries and cakes. Most outlets even provide all day delicious breakfast set meals such Break O’ Day and Breakfast Platter.
Coffee Hive is a home grown coffee outlet that was started by 4 business-minded men. They embarked on this quest after they discovered that it was excruciatingly difficult to locate a good place for freshly brewed coffee, delicious food and prompt service, in the central business district (CBD) in Singapore.
Coffee Hive is famous for its traditionally blended coffee and tea drinks, made from all natural ingredients, and served hot in a traditional small cup and saucer plate. Among the wide variety of local traditional coffee drinks include Hot Kopi, Hot Kopi O, Hot Kopi C, Cold Kopi, Cold Kopi C and Cold Kopi O. Kopi is Malay for coffee, while Kopi O is plain black coffee with no milk, and Kopi C means coffee served with evaporated milk. Apart from coffee drinks, Coffee Hive also serves other local breakfast favourites such as half boiled eggs and butter/kaya toast, making the place a truly authentic local food outlet.
