Coffee or Kopi.. ..Where do you get your cuppa?

Starbucks to Ya Kun.. ...
CoffeeBean to Toast Box.. ..

Where do you get your good cuppa when you are out?
I noticed different branches have different 'standard' too.

I'm a coffee freak myself.

It's true, standards vary across outlets. What I find is that the bigger outlets tend to be more consistent. Better too if you know the baristas. Variation among local coffee outlets are just as wide. But I am willing to take the risk because the "cost of error" is low. A cup of local coffee costs just a quarter of an expresso drink.

If you are looking for places to try, I'd suggest Haggen-daz at velocity for their Illy coffee, Coffeebean at Plaza by the Park, Yakun at united square, Food for thought near waterloo street; there is also a coffee stall in cambridge food centre that makes an excellent cuppa.

Hope this helps.

DH and I used to go to Coffee Bean at Serangoon Gardens during the weekends.

We like to order Brazil Cerrado (hope I got the name right).

I also like the Starbucks at Sembawang Shopping Centre and Vivo City.

TCC also has some nice coffee concoctions too.

Nowadays though, ever since we invested in a Nespresso, we hardly ever specifically go out to drink coffee :D

Nespresso really change our Kopi break timings too. . .
Nowadays DH like to head home for his cuppa, instead of having a cupa before we head home from outside.

I hang out at Parkway Parade quite a bit and normally end up at Mc Cafe, Ya Kun or Dome.. ..
