Located at basement level of One Raffles Place is JAB Coffee Bar, a specialty coffee joint that ‘jabs’ handcrafted shots of espresso in the CBD area. Good news to all caffeine junky as all coffee-based beverages contains double shots. Alternatively, teas from T2 are available too for those who prefers a mild and slow start for their day.
Beans offered are from Brazil, Uganda, Sumatra and India, which gave of a nice chocolatey aroma and note. At the same time it was a little smokey too.
Once in a while, the barista from JAB coffee will offer blends from other roasters and for my visit was a single origin, Ethiopia Werka Bauka.
To my surprise, there was a simple latte despite of served in a take-away cup!
This neat little joint functions as a take-away kiosk, however, a handful of high seats are available for a pit stop as well.
Sometimes, good stuff do come at a higher price with starting price of $5 for milk based coffee and up to $7 for an Iced Mocha.
Nevertheless, JAB Coffee Bar is probably one of the best joint in the CBD thus far.
