Dutch Colony Coffee Co. has opened another outlet at UE Square, Clemenceau Avenue. Note: This is at River Valley, do not be confused with United Square.
This is its 3rd branch after PasarBella @ The Grandstand and Frankel Avenue.
My first experience with Dutch Colony was at PasarBella a few years ago, when Keropokman told me of this “very good coffee you must have” hidden within the market.
Good news spreads fast, so does good coffee. The roastery and café quickly gained a sizable following among coffee aficionados.
The branch at UE Square has completely different vibes from the former two. This has a contemporary, clean look that would appeal to the executives in the area; whereas the other two appeared more industrial, and well… hipster.
The coffee selection includes a rotating selection of single origins – 2 from Ethopia, 1 from Burundi.
If not, an Espresso ($3.50) or Latte ($5.00) made from the signature “Dutch Blends” which has tasting notes of milk chocolate and strawberries (on white) should be a safe choice.
In layman’s terms (sorry I am not coffee-expert), I thought their latte was deep and smooth, and not overly acidic. I like.
There was a selection of cakes from Matcha Azuki ($7.90), Chocolate Banana ($7.90), Speculoos Cheesecake ($7.90), Lychee Rose ($7.90), and Hummingbird Cake ($7.90).
I personally thought it could be a dollar too expensive (below $7 for a slice of cake would be more comfortable for me), and the sponge layer of the Matcha Azuki could be moister.
The Dutch Colony Coffee Co. team is working on the savouries at the moment, and we shall be looking forward to an expanded menu soon.
