Coffee lovers rejoice!
The Singapore Coffee Festival is back, and with so much to offer, it’s going to be a coffee connoisseur’s dream!
WHAT IS THE SINGAPORE COFFEE FESTIVAL?
The Singapore Coffee Festival, organised by The Straits Times and presented by DBS Bank, is back this year! Featuring brews from the best local and international café’s, explore the craftsmanship behind specialty coffee and uncover Singapore’s unique and rich ‘kopi’ heritage.
WHO’S GOING TO BE THERE
With beans, blends, gadgets and machines exhibited and available for purchase from over 100 different exhibitors from Singapore’s coffee and lifestyle scene, as well as notable international entrants, it is unlikely that you’d run out of things to see and brews to try.
As you chill out in one of their specially designed social spaces, or while admiring the panoramic waterfront view, enjoy local music acts like Ffion, Inch and Stopgap at this year’s Singapore Coffee Festival. A grand total of six local artistes will grace the stage over the three day event.

There is definitely going to be lots to see and do at this year’s Singapore Coffee Festival. Besides merely enjoying your cuppa, learn how to brew the perfect cup of joe by signing up for one of the Lab Sessions offered!
The Straits Times, Bettr Barista and Common Man Coffee organised The Lab Sessions last year. These sessions focused on topics like barista skills, latte art, starting a café, and chocolate pairings.
Grab your tickets soon, because tickets to the Lab Sessions last year were snapped up almost as soon as they were released!
MORE THAN A ONE-OFF FESTIVAL
“Design The Cup” competition – Entrants submitted illustrations, in the hopes of getting their illustration featured on 6,000 coffee cups for the festival.
The winning illustration, above, is by local Temasek Polytechnic student Ellen Chee.
10 lucky winners were given the opportunity to visit 4 local café’s to enjoy and sample great coffee. Not to mention hanging out with local Radio DJ Desiree Lai! (Jealous much!). The winners also got to take a behind the scenes look at what goes into the perfect cup of coffee. The baristas also taught them some neat tips and tricks!
