Handcraft is a relatively new addition to the scene, from the same people behind Grace Espresso! The black ($5) is made with Ethiopian beans, featuring a surprisingly complex profile - initially bright, sharp and citrusy before mellowing to a more floral candied flavour. Would love to try this as a white! They also have two more options for filter coffee.

Opted for a white ($5.50) using their Guatemalan beans. A single shot is a tad weak for me with a rather milky flavour, the hints of apple and caramel barely coming through.

The standard iced white ($6++) is made with beans from Compound Coffee. Medium bodied with a hint of acidity. Rather enjoyable but the small ice cubes melt too quickly and thin out the drink!

The homemade brownie ($3.50) is the cakey sort but I enjoyed the crisp top and rich flavour! Paired well with their black coffee ($4) - the mix of Brazilian and Colombian beans packed a punch with its dark roast and nutty profile. Surprisingly creamy consistency and very thick!

Have tried Tiong Hoe multiple times in a bid to see what others adore but I find them lacking every time. The piccolo ($4.50 + $1 for ice) is a touch stronger but still too milky and surprisingly thin in consistency.

In contrast to its weekend crowds, Glyph is pretty quiet on a weekday morning and makes for an enjoyable slow breakfast! Got a cinnamon roll ($5) with long black ($4.50). The pastry was flakey but a little hard at its base. The sweetness of its molasses was balanced by the coffee - hands down one of the best I’ve had!! Their long black packed a punch with its strong roasted flavour and notes of stone fruits with a touch of citrus. It leans towards the acidic side but it was so good! Can’t wait to try their filter options.

Surprised to find the cafe filled to the brim on a weekday morning, and even more astonished at the quality of their coffee! With beans roasted in-house, the flat white ($5) is robust with a strong, well rounded malty flavour and substantial caffeine boost.

No complaints for this price point - the hojicha latte ($2.90) is a tad grainy and thin, but its flavour comes through. Wish it was served hot because this was lukewarm at best!

Expected more from their coffee, given the origins of the cafe. The white ($5) was smooth and nutty but too milky for me! The filter coffees might fare better but they’re priced steeply.

Previously tried their white with dark matter blend, so I thought to try their black ($5) with equilibrium this time! It comprises beans from Santa Rosa, Konga and Ethiopia, resulting in a mild fruity acidity and light mouthfeel. Their filter coffees ($6) are quite popular!

I usually keep a wide berth from milky coffees, but Maxi’s cereal milk latte ($7.50) is an indulgence that I keep coming back for. So much so that I haven’t tried any of their other options! Coffee is smooth, albeit mild, with the rich flavour of milk infused with cereal.

The latte ($5) suffices if you’re just looking for a shot of caffeine, but I would otherwise give this a miss. It was far too milky with nary a hint of flavour!
