We bought a coffee machine when we moved to UK and it came with us to Singapore. Not those silly pod machines, a real bean to cup machine. Worth the investment.

Sort of yes and no. Coffee in the USA (other than the real cheap stuff) runs $9 to $12 US per pound at a grocer with good coffee supplies, as much as USD 20 per pound at a specialty store.

Agree, though... you can't really get the cheaper stuff.

I used to shop here... best prices, I thought, and a very good selection of coffees.

No cheap beans here but still the prices are a bit more than I would expect back home and also in the UK (which didn’t have that many options - coffee so bad there). Will check out the link thanks!

I've picked up a taste for kopi-c kosong (coffee with evaporated milk and no sugar). I'd never drink it at home, but somehow it makes sense in a hawker centre. It helps me recover from that tired, hazy feeling like nothing else can.

Anyway, I recommend Lam Yeo Coffee Powder Factory (328 Balastier Road). They have beans from all over the world: Sumatra, El Salvador, Kenya, Jamaica ('Blue Mountain'), etc, at a decent price. I have them ground and use an AeroPress at home.

As for cafes, I live near Little India and there seems to be lots of good ones around Rangoon Road (Jewel, Old Hen) and Lavender (Chye Seng Huat Hardware).

On a side note.. not all coffee shops do coffee the same. Any "safe"/good coffee to recommend? I realised that coffees in Aperia Mall generally do not dissapoint if you are in the central area as I always go there for lunch. Can't seeem to find any discouraging ones among the shops xD

There's this hipster coffee shop called huggs in Changi Business Park next to the cisco office which makes pretty good coffee. not a fancy cafe or anything, mostly a pick up and go place.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late
