Being honest here, perhaps many of us have never heard of Vision Exchange.
This commercial building near Jurong East actually contains a number of eateries such as Spaceout 闊, Shi Ding Xuan Hotpot, A Kitchen, Oh My, AHTII Korean Restaurant, 川小喵, and Anjana Kitchen.
Just 5 minutes’ walk from Jurong East MRT station, Venture Drive Coffee is located on the 2nd floor of Vision Exchange along Venture Drive (and thus its name).
Even though this building is quite “ulu” (off the beaten track), there is a certain charm to this place that draws me and reminds me of %Arabica, Glyph Supply Co. and Alchemist in terms of its colour scheme.
The spanking white cafe is spacious (good for social distancing), with minimalist white approach from the walls, bar top, long communal table, stools to the chairs.
Focusing on single origin coffee beans that are roasted in-house, their menu offers only beverages such as Black ($4.50 – $10), White ($5 – $6.50), Mocha ($6 – $7), Chocolate ($6 – $7) and Tea ($6).
Extra espresso shot and Vegan Milk (I guessed they are referring to oat milk and almond milk) are available at an additional $1.
Serving single origin Brazil coffee beans with a natural process for their espresso-based drinks, it has a nutty and chocolatey taste.
I decided to go with their single origin Ethiopia coffee beans at an additional $0.50 for my cup of Iced White ($6.50) that comes with 2 espresso shots.
The cup of Flat White has a medium body packed with floral, citrusy with berries notes, refreshing for the hot weather these days.
I was told that they will be introducing Black and White Cold Brews in 480ml bottles in the near future, so it’s a sign to venture there again when I’m in the West part of Singapore.
