Pre-event Note: Coffee Festival Singapore 2016 on 9-12 June at F1 Pit BuildingJune 07, 2016
It's festival galore! Other than Negroni Week which is happening right now, the Singapore Coffee Festival 2016 will also be showing from this Friday 10th to Sunday 12th of June at the F1 Pit Building with over 100 exhibitors. While we have had coffee festivals in the past, this is the first time it is so organised with big brands like DBS presenting and The Straits Time hosting it, so you know it's going to be a great experience. Get your tickets from Sistic here.
Personally I am a great fan of specialty coffee and delicious brews (in fact, would be so good to have some right now!) and was glad to hear that other than 'hipster' cafes, roasters and other coffee and food companies will also be there. There are so many things happening, I couldn't possibly list all of them, so read this Straits Times article to find out all about it.
First stop: Oriole Coffee at 96 Somerset Rd, Singapore 238163
Together with a much-needed latte (which I always get whenever I want a coffee in town) sampled some of their delectable brunch offerings such as the crabcakes, eggs benedict, salmon rosti and the crowd favourite being the Oatmeal with Berries. What's cool about Oriole is that other than winning at competitions, they also produce their very own dairy-free milk and Taisho cold brews.
Thanks to Food News PR and SG Coffee Fest for the invite!
