Founder Tan Tiong Hoe carries more than 50 years of heritage in roasting high-quality coffee, from his humble beginnings as a 16-year-old coffee shop apprentice to starting his own company that now caters to the country’s top food and beverage outlets. His son Jacob Tan is now at the helm of the cafe, offering 20 different origins of specialty coffee from Africa, Asia, and Central America. The outlet’s highlight? They let you roast your own beans using their Stronghold S7 Pro Roaster, which you can collect on the spot.
I was super impressed by this roastery!! Their pollen milky cold brew was so addictive. It’s an old old local company apparently and they specialise in filtered coffee (not espressos). Their freshly roasted beans are pretty good too! Quiet super local neighbourhood in an HDB complex!

Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee has been serving Singapore’s caffeine-loving community since the 1960s, making it a classic in the city’s java scene. Today, the cafe is famous for its constantly changing roster of blends (no menus here!), which adds a sense of excitement and variety to your visit.
Watch out for coffee appreciation workshops by the legend himself, Tan Tiong Hoe, a veteran roaster who has over 50 years of experience under his belt.
I worked in Bonifacio Global City for more than a decade, and Kuppa is just across my office building. I love their Crispy Pata, which is quite ironic because I’m not a fan of that dish. For some reason, their version of the Crispy Pata is special. Aside from the classic liver sauce and vinegar-soy sauce combo, they also serve it with apple chutney.
