[Updated] A review of the new Coffee Academics Singapore is available here.

[Original entry] The Telegraph named it one of “the world’s best coffee shops”; Buzzfeed listed it under “25 coffee shops around the world you have to see before you die”; I just know this is my must-have coffee in Hong Kong.

Coffee lovers, The Coffee Academics has arrived from Hong Kong to Singapore. (Read: The Coffee Academics Hong Kong)

Located at Scotts Square Orchard, this will be a ground-breaking 3000 square feet outlet, with a 7-sensory station experience that should shake up the cafe scene here.

The Coffee Academics is known to provide an outstanding coffee experience, complete with well-trained baristas and state-of-the-art equipment. Quoting a friend, ” Leng zai barista, scenery piu leong, iced drip serves in wine glass. So class…”

Current offerings include Espresso ($3.50), Americano ($4.00), Piccolo Latte ($4.50), Cappuccino ($5), Caffe Latte ($5), Flat White ($5), and iced versions cost a dollar extra.

Floral cupcakes from Crème Maison Bakery are available at $6 each.

I had a Latte. The house blend has a medium body, buttery chocolate aftertaste and long flavour-saturated finish. Smooth and almost as good as what I experienced in Hong Kong.

The cup was stronger than some of the other coffee found at Orchard Road, and can offer that needed perk-me-up. (Okay, the truth. I wanted to blog about this later, but couldn’t sleep after the coffee, so woke up to write this.)

What I liked about Hong Kong’s TCA is the whole experience – offerings of the latest coffee techniques and flavours, interaction with baristas, and coffee appreciation classes.

I have the feeling this is a cafe I will go back rather often when it officially opens.
