Forget about the 3-in-1 coffee. Because nothing beats freshly-roasted coffee that goes into a cup or a bag. So, whether you want to enjoy a cuppa or bring home a bag (or a few of them), here are the Top 10 Coffee Roasters in Singapore.
1) Five Oars Coffee Roasters
Great coffee matters a lot at Five Oars, where they pride themselves in using only the best quality beans possible. They keep their menu simple, offering familiar favourites from black to white, espresso and filter coffee. And depending on your preference, you can choose Five Oars’ house blends: Cypress (toffee & chocolate) or Birch (blueberry + bergamot). Add-ons are also available at a fraction of the price such as soy and oat milk. Alternatively, you can have freshly roasted coffee beans delivered straight to your doorstep.
2) Nylon Coffee Roasters
Nylon Coffee Roasters has been around since 2012 and is still going strong, thanks to its loyal following over the years. Nylon’s secret of success lies in its quality, yet reasonably-priced coffee beans sourced from different parts of the world. Among them includes Ethiopia (Nensebo Riripa), Peru (Suriray) and Honduras (Los Liquidamos). You can also consider signing up for their filter coffee subscription programme. From just $20 a month, you can look forward to curated seasonal coffees specially sourced by Nylon and have them delivered straight to your doorstep.
3) Homeground Coffee Roasters
Operating since 2017, Homeground offers a wide range of coffee that comes with different taste characteristics. For instance, if you prefer something smooth, look for Homeground’s Green Series, namely their house blend Vanta — a medium-heavy bodied espresso roast that combines nutty (roasted almonds, pecans) and fruity (red apple) flavour. You can also sign up for their monthly coffee subscription, where you have the choice of filter ($24.60+) or espresso ($34+).
Sarnies is where you can sit back, relax and have a good cuppa within a cosy Aussie-style interior. Their coffee beans are roasted in-house, offering the likes of Long Black, Flat White and Bulletproof Coffee. For something refreshing, do try their Cold Brew or Iced Coconut Long Black. You can have a bag of coffee beans delivered to your home too, where they have various selections available such as Uganda Buigsu and Ethiopia Guji.
5) Toby’s Estate
Toby’s Estate doesn’t compromise quality when it comes to their speciality coffee. You will find only the best-sourced and freshly-brewed coffee here no matter you order, say flat white or cappuccino. Other than operating as a cafe at Robertson Quay overlooking the Singapore River, they also function as both roastery and retailer. They even provide wholesale, where their handcrafted coffee is all roasted to order to preserve freshness and packed in high-quality, one-way-valve bags.
6) Perk Coffee
Paul and Serena, the brains behind Perk, are both enthusiastic about all things coffee. They believe that “fresher is better” when comes to roasting coffee and they support local farmers as well. For the latter, they go as far as paying above Fairtrade price for all their coffees. Perk also sources their coffee beans ethically and sustainably, where they have a strong connection with Africa and Hawaii. You can purchase their coffee online regardless of whole bean, ground or drip bags such as Brazil Cerrado and Colombia Altura.
7) The Beans Grocer
If you are looking for high-quality premium coffee both locally and internationally, The Beans Grocer has them all right here. For the latter, they source their coffee from the likes of USA’s Onyx Coffee Lab and Sweden’s Morgon Coffee Roasters. They have different types of coffee available, covering from single origin to blend, filter, capsules and drip bags. They even offer various payment modes such as PayLater by Grab and interest-free instalments via hoolah.
8) Round Boy Roasters
Round Boy Roasters had a humble beginning operating in a cottage shop in 2018 before they become a full-fledged roastery/cafe at Jalan Bukit Merah. They offer premium whole or ground coffee beans and others like ready-to-drink can/bottle or concentrated drinks. You can also sign up for their subscription, where you can opt for omakase, single-origin or blend. And best of all, you even have the freedom to pick weekly, biweekly, every 10 days or monthly frequencies.
9) Liberty Coffee
