Sept 2014

Got to know Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee through my visit at A For Arbite Cafe a while back. During that visit, Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee was promoting a coffee and food pairing menu offered at the cafe and that name was immediately registered into my “cafe to-go” list

The story of Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee started way back in 1960, where Mr Tan Tiong Hoe who was only 17 years old, started working with a Dutch coffee company. By 1963, he started his own coffee roasting and distribution venture.

Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee isn’t just a major player in coffee roasting and distribution, they are also supplier of coffee accessories for big brand such as Elektra and a tea supplier.

With the massive craze about cafes in Singapore, Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee (Better Coffee) is managed by their second generation and is tucked in a quiet neighbourhood along Sterling Road. Before the sight of the cafe/roastery, I was already welcomed by the thick aroma that lingered along the stretch of corridor.

Upon stepping into the cafe, I was immediately intrigued by the array display of vintage coffee equipments, stacks of raw coffee beans and the blend of modern cupping equipment.

Over here, coffee are meant for tasting and appreciation, therefore there isn’t a unit price for your cuppa. However, you are encouraged to contribute to the ‘tip box’ as a kind gesture. Raw and roasted coffee beans are for sale over here!

My latte was a blend of Columbian and Guatemala beans. It had a medium body, nice sweet aroma and cocoa notes. The latte art, thick and richly colored crema were beautiful too!

After spending my time at the cafe, I popped over (next unit) and got some freshly grounded traditional Nanyang coffee for daily fix at $12 per kilograms. As many may refer Coal as ‘Black Gold’, while I define these thick and dark roasted coffee beans as my ‘Black Gold’!
