The Coffee Academics Singapore

If you’re looking for a creamy, delightfully balanced and well-made cup of joe—look no further than this speciality coffee spot. From classic offerings such as piccolo latte and flat white to their special espresso-based coffee flavours that take inspiration from four different countries. Our favourite is the Manuka latte, which is sweetened with natural organic honey from New Zealand. Islandwide delivery is available on Chope.

Old Hen Coffee

This quaint little coffee joint’s cold brew coffee, Valrhona cocoa and cold matcha milk have been quite a hit on Instagram since its inception. Perfectly packaged in clear glass or plastic bottles, the beverages are made in-house and customers are advised to consume them on the same day or within three to five days so that the taste won’t be compromised. Call ahead to place your orders and avoid disappointment as their bottled drinks do get snapped up pretty fast. Zone-specific delivery is available with more details on their website.

Apollo Coffee Bar

Although this cafe is fairly new, we quickly became fans of their light bites as well as coffee, of course. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll definitely enjoy the iced mocha—add a scoop of ice cream if you’re feeling like a sinful treat. Islandwide delivery is available on Grabfood.

The homegrown brand is currently offering home delivery for their cold brew coffee which is available in three versions: black, white and oat milk. Caffeine addicts can opt for the coffee subscription service too, available weekly and bi-weekly. According to its website, Parallel was started in 2017 because "two brothers were pissed they couldn’t find a good cup of speciality coffee in Singapore for less than $5". Luckily for us, they started their company—and are only charging a flat delivery fee of $5. Their coffee drinks are currently sold in packs of six bottles. Islandwide delivery fee is available on their website.

Forty Hands Cafe

As one of the pioneer cafes in Singapore that truly played a prominent role in elevating the local cafe scene, it's only natural that this popular spot is on our list. It serves up hearty grub on top of their aromatic brews so order yourself some brunch and perhaps a flat white—a favourite of ours thanks to its silky texture. Islandwide delivery is available on Grabfood.

% Arabica

Before the circuit breaker measures were imposed, long lines were constantly seen at this coffee joint’s outlets in Singapore—and understandably so. Each cuppa is made with high-quality coffee beans that are freshly roasted. The Spanish latte is absolutely divine and a must-try. Islandwide delivery is available on Grabfood.

Five Oars Coffee Roasters

The flavours of coffee served at this industrial-chic cafe are bold and strong enough for serious coffee drinkers. Coffee aficionados who are looking for a decent cup of Joe won’t be disappointed by the cappuccino as well as the latte. Islandwide delivery is available on their website

The Assembly Ground

Here’s a local spot that prides itself on serving coffee blends from the best coffee roasters in town. While we would much prefer to dine in at their cosy location at The Cathay, we’re going to have to settle with having our lattes delivered to us for now. Besides the quintessential latte, we’re also huge fans of their iced Americano and iced mocha. Islandwide delivery is available on Oddle.  

Chye Seng Huat Hardware

Coffee lovers in Singapore are bound to be familiar with Chye Seng Huat Hardware, which is coffee roaster PPP Coffee's (formerly known as Papa Palheta) flagship store. The indie cafe offers a range of their speciality coffees for delivery, including brew bar specials, cold brew coffee (black and white), and the usual classics like cappuccino, long black, latte, mocha and flat white. Islandwide delivery is available on Grabfood.

Dutch Colony Coffee Co.

Here's another cafe that will keep you coming back for more. Although famous for its Signature Flight Coffee, which comprises a cup of velvety cappuccino alongside a shot of espresso, it isn't offered for home delivery. Fret not, however, as there are plenty of other espresso-based coffee options available. Go for the macchiato, which is fragrant with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Islandwide delivery is available on Grabfood.

Café Cartisan

Those with a taste for Melbourne-inspired coffee drinks will enjoy this café on wheels’ hand-crafted brews, made with locally-roasted, house-blended coffee beans. There’s a wide range of flavours to choose from, including the crowd-favourite Magic Coffee Bomb. This Dalgona-style drink is crafted with double espresso, soy, black sesame and plant-based milk, and makes for your perfect morning cuppa. Classic options abound too, including iced latte, iced mocha and iced black. Available for islandwide delivery with more details on their website
