The Better Beans

The Better Beans

From coffee beans to cup. Coffee brewing is an art and a science in its own right.

Opted for Guerilla No.2 that is the store's most versatile espresso blend. Despite the coffee temperature being hotter than what was expected, the coffee was strong yet smooth with a distinctive chocolatey sweetness to it and light acidity. A nice place to seatback and relax with a cuppa under a warm and natural backdrop with soft lightings.

A signature - Americano with kaya-spiked cream, a touch of sea salt and gula melaka shavings. The cream was absolutely delicious and mildly sweet. I would suggest to slightly shake and let the cream mix with the bitter coffee taste for an all rounded balance drink.

This is definitely making it into my top list of cold brews. The coffee was rich and creamy with an intense and bold coffee flavour. While slightly sweetened, it balanced out the bitter notes nicely.

Understand that the coffee beans used are roasted by Double Up Coffee. The coffee was smooth and slightly acidic with a nutty undertone. Definitely adding this to my list of go-to places for iced coffee (which I'm very selective of as I prefer them hot).

Simply love the look and feel of this warm and cozy cafe. Tried their rice bowl lunch set and topped up $2 for a good cup of coffee. The white cold brew was smooth, medium bodied, and slightly sweetened and with distinctive bright notes. Love it! 👍

Available in 2 sizes, the White 6oz was a full body while White 8oz was a balanced flavour with more milk. I had the 8oz which was smooth and nutty, and medium bodied with less acidity. Still a place for good coffee and chill vibes.

An elegant yet casual cafe in the middle of bustling Orchard. A cosy place for coversations over a cup of coffee that was smooth and not too strong (medium-bodied).

Definitely a first for me having a white cold brew served with a cup of coffee ice cubes. The cold brew was rich and creamy as both heavy cream and fresh milk were used; and had a bitter-sweet aftertaste to it. And thanks to the added ice cubes, the coffee was insanely strong both in flavour and caffeine. Definitely a must-try by coffee lovers who like med to full bodied coffee. 👍

Smooth, light and medium-bodied with no after bitter taste. It was served with a cute little gingerbread man for a little bite.

Need fuel for a tough week ahead? Old Hen cold brews are light, creamy (those with milk) and you can smell the coffee aroma. Coffee wise it is relatively strong while not being too acidic.

An interesting aspect to this place is their roasting gallery that had a fully automated coffee roaster and a display of coffee beans from various countries. Opting for my usual, I had my latte brewed with their house blend "Anti Matter" which was a dark roast. It was more full bodied but wasn't as acidic as I thought it would be; and it had a nice chocolate and nutty aftertaste. Another joint to get my fix!
