The Coffee Academics was launched in 2012 with its flagship outlet at Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. A dear friend of ours who had been to one of its outlets in Hong Kong had booked us this place for a surprise birthday party in its newly opened outlet at Scotts Square in Singapore.
We were all very glad about the choice of place to hold the intimate party. For early birds, they enjoyed some espresso-based coffees like the Manuka and Okinawa–these special coffees are blended with organic natural honey and dark brown sugar, respectively.
The party was indeed a fun gathering of good friends. Friends from sports, from an art film appreciation group, and from a charity organisation. The conversations and laughters were enjoyed more with Coffee Academics’ Margherita Pizza, Scrambled Eggs with Crayfish, Crispy Fish Fillet Tacos and Academics Pancake Tower for dessert.
Why are they called The Coffee Academics?
Because they teach you everything you need to know about coffee and the art of making it. They actually conduct small ‘coffee classes’ inside the outlet. Students or “coffee novices” are taught not just to be good Baristas but also important knowledge about coffee selection, its origin (farming), roasting, brewing techniques and even cupping.
