La Kopi Singapore 2019: Celebrating good food and kopi

Food Lover

In a search of good coffee? Well, doesn't matter if you're a fan of handcrafted coffee or old fashion kopi-o. And even if you’re not a caffeine lover, there's bound to be something one would enjoy at La Kopi Singapore 2019.  We had an eye-opening caffeinated experience at the inaugural La Kopi Singapore event that happened on 25 - 27 January at the Singapore Expo. From hands-on activities, trying out local and foreign coffee roasters and to pair it with local delicacies! We had the chance to sit back, relax and have a cuppa while learning more on the coffee industry and being a part of the community.

Enjoy coffee from familiar names such as Homeground, Coffee Break and Pyroast. We highly recommend trying coffee brewed from Homeground's award-winning Sidamo Ethiopia beans.

It starts off with the fragrance of watermelon, followed by the sweetness of dark red plum and ends off with the lingering taste of black tea.

We went for the traditional snack, dragon bread candy from Nanyang Flavours. Usually, bread candy is served with peanut filling but here, we had the chance to try sesame and kopi filling!
