The popular %Arabica has opened its 3rd outlet in Singapore, located at Chip Bee Gardens Holland Village.

%Arabica is known to be originally from Kyoto Japan, currently expanding globally under the coffee leadership of Global Head Baristas Junichi Yamaguchi and Shu Konishi.

Currently, there are stores located in Japan, Hong Kong, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Philippines and China.

It takes pride in using beans from its own coffee farm in Hawaii, and from around the world. The company strives to source all its beans directly from the origins.

Depending on the season and availability, you can find coffees from Japan, Guatemala, Brazil, El Salvador, Ethiopia and Panama.

Over in Singapore, Caffe Latte is priced at $7 for short, $8 for tall, while the iced version is priced at $8.

If you like a little sweetness to your coffee, you can try the Spanish Latte ($9 for iced) which was first created by % Arabica Kuwait, and includes sweetened condensed milk.

There are nuances that reminded me of the local kopi peng, so for a more unadulterated taste, go for the Caffe Latte or Americano.

In terms of food, there are 3 pastries available at the other two stores – the Almond Croissant ($4.20), Pain Au Chocolat ($3.50), and Croissant ($3.20), but we can look forward to more dishes coming February.

  1. I spoke to Junichi-san while in Kyoto last month. He said he left %Arabica BEFORE the Singapore set up. You may wish to review the facts. He is heading and owns “here” Kyoto now.
