Started off as a coffee cart business in 2018, Musketeers Coffee is founded by 3 friends who call themselves “Musketeers”.
(“The Three Musketeers” is also a well-known French historical adventure novel, well adapted into several movies and TV shows.)
They went from running events in a makeshift coffee cart, to a permanent brick-and-mortar space at the ground floor lobby of SoilBuild.
However, do note that this is more of a takeaway space, as the current seating area is limited to just 2 tables (plus remember to safe distance).
Their menu is short and concise, mainly focusing on their in-house artisanal coffee.
Using a 3-beans-blend (Ethiopia, Columbia, Costa Rica) roasted by Tad Coffee, the menu includes Espresso ($3.50), Black/ White ($4.50) and Mocha ($5).
For those coffee enthusiasts seeking Pourover Coffee, they are using coffee beans roasted by Anteroom Coffee Brewers with 2 variants: Daily brew ($4) and V60 ($6).
The Flat White ($4.50) is one of the most reasonably priced artisanal coffee I had.
It comes with a single shot of espresso, full bodied with a creamy and smooth texture, pretty well balanced without feeling the acidity.
Add-ons such as Oat Milk (+$0.50), espresso shot ($1) and Ice ($1) are also available.
Bottled drinks ($5.50) such as “Accident” White Coffee, Chilled Mocha, Mint Chocolate and Black Cold Brew are available in 200ml bottles.
I (accidentally) saw the “Accident” White Coffee on the menu and was curious what it means.
The preparation is different as they added extracted espresso to milk and let it sit overnight instead of steeping the coffee beans in cold water overnight before filtering it.
(Some people may feel it is essentially the same as accidentally putting a glass of latte in the fridge overnight…)
The result is more acidic with a more pronounced espresso taste in the “Accident” White Coffee.
Light bites are also available such as Overnight Oat ($5) and Toastie with Cheese ($3), Vegemite ($3) and Peanut Butter ($4).
I ordered the Tao Cheez Toastie ($3) that comes with melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese with butter.
The stretchy savoury cheese is on the saltier side and the toast is unfortunately a little too thick and dense, with dry edges.
Musketeers Coffee is a good alternative for artisanal coffee if you are in the vicinity as there’s no cafe nearby.
