Where to get local Singapore coffee (kopi) powder?

Postby cooberpedy » Sat, 23 Feb 2008 12:03 pm

I am interested in sending back home some local Singapore kopi powder/ mixture, for a lark.

Where can I buy a small tin?

I would think that you could find it in Mustafa's but I would just go to a KopiTiam and ask the Kopi Uncle if you could buy some from him or have him tell you where to get it.

a wet market/ hawker centre by new upper changi road/ bedok south ave 3... there are some shops/stalls between the wet area and the hawker centre, one of them sells kopi powder. There are different grades to choose from and he grinds them on the spot...

Not sure if its still there though... :?

The KopiTiam use Nestles condensed milk, because of the sugar. I think Carnation is only cream, and too expensive for Singaporeans to use, if they have to supply sugar too especially in the hawker centres, F&N never found fresh milk yet, for coffee...

Although I would expect Holland Village area to cater for the expats needs more thoughfully, like the CBD area, you can actually get milk, although this is Singapore, and out in the sticks...it's drink what the locals drink.

The 3 in 1 mix, is not really a kopiTiam drink it's all Malaysian packed that I've seen, very different, but the taste is more appealing...I use it when i get tired of drinking Nescafe!

Strong Coffee is not my cup of tea, unless it can change my hair colour, did i say that! How corny :roll: :oops:

Another good business opportunity there, for a good Singaporean Coffee mix! I can't stand Starbucks coffee either ........In fact I miss the old liquid posion my mother used to drink called CAMP, but that's going back in time.

Well I never! : See what i found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_Coffee

Could re-invent this stuff and call it the Blairbush donation campaign! :shock:
