Coffee is a huge part of the average Singaporean day.
From the early birds who brew their coffee at home, to lethargic parents who get their daily dose of coffee from cafes, most of us can’t get started without a cup of good coffee!
As we step into the new decade, the number of cafes, coffee roasters and coffee subscription services in Singapore have increased dramatically over the past ten years. It has been easier than ever to get yourself a good cup of coffee, either made by the cafe barista or in the comfort of your home. But, do you still remember those days where your “kopi” was made in coffee socks and filled in a see-through plastic bag with string?
Specialty Coffee vs “Kopi”
Compared to our regular cup of “kopi” that’s made with robusta beans, a cup of specialty coffee uses arabica beans. Arabica coffee beans are higher in quality as compared to robusta beans as they have undergone a rigorous scoring process by coffee connoisseurs.
Apart from the quality difference, coffee lovers also get to choose their favourite beans according to the type of roast, origin, acidity and even mouthfeel it has!
Growth of Cafe and Coffee Roasters
With our society more well-travelled, we are exposed to different coffee cultures and in turn, we seek better coffee drinking experiences in our home country. Famous coffee chains like Starbucks, may not satisfy our tastebuds anymore. With more demand for specialty coffee, cafes and coffee roasters have grown rapidly to meet the coffee needs. To keep up with the ever-changing landscape, cafes and coffee roasters are constantly exploring new ways to satisfy their customers.
At Perk, we guarantee that you only get the freshest coffee that’s ethically sourced, right at your doorstep. Your coffee is roasted fresh to order, every Monday and Wednesday, and is delivered to you within 48 hours! Now, you won’t have to start any day without your caffeine fix.
