Puzzled where to find a coffee spot in town, Puzzle Coffee will be the solution.

Established in Melbourne in 2021, Puzzle Coffee has opened its fifth outlet and first international outpost at ION Orchard Singapore.

Their objective is to be a socially responsible bean to cup artisan coffeehouse, by creating a sustainable and better world with coffee.

That said, Puzzle Coffee uses fairly-traded coffee beans direct from farmers around the world, that are freshly roasted weekly in Melbourne.

The 20-seater space is decked in wood textures and earthy tones that exude a warm vibe.

These materials chosen were in tune with Puzzle Coffee’s commitment to sustainability, where only recycled, up-cycled or repurposed materials were used whenever possible.

The stools were also modelled after puzzle pieces to reflect the name of the brand.

The menu here in Singapore is the same as the one over in Melbourne, using Riddle signature blend for their White ($6) and single origin for their Black ($5).

For the serious coffee drinkers, a selection of Gesha beans are used for their Pour Over Coffee ($19 – $30).

Whereas for the non-coffee drinkers, keep a lookout for an interesting selection of Biscoff Latte ($6.50), Black Sesame Latte ($6), Matcha/ Hojicha Latte ($6.50), Chai Latte ($6) and the Singapore-exclusive Purple Sweet Potato Latte ($6.50).

Customers can also switch the cup to an Edible Grain Cup at an additional $3, 100% vegan made from edible oats and grains in Melbourne, that will last up to 8 hours with liquid in it.

A healthy and interesting way to “eat” your coffee, the grain cup is tasteless on its own, and supposedly goes well with the coffee.

I had the Magic ($6) in an Edible Grain Cup ($3), a double ristretto topped with steamed milk using the Riddle Signature Blend, a 3-beans-blend of Colombia, Peru and Brazil.

The Magic had a medium body, smooth, with macadamia nuts and milk chocolate.

Uji Matcha powder is used in the Matcha Latte ($6.50), unfortunately sweetened even though it was fragrant with earthy notes.

A selection of pastries are displayed on the shelves, sourced from Bakery Artisan Original.

Check out the Kaya Croissant ($5), Pear Crumble Danish ($5), Mini Almond Croissant ($2.80), Mini Almond Croissant ($2.80) and Mini Pain Au Choc ($2.80).

I preferred the Kaya Croissant ($5), topped with desiccated coconut flakes for the extra crunch, in contrast to the flaky and buttery exterior layer.

On the inside, it was more bread-like and fluffy, unlike the airy croissant texture that we are familiar with.

Just in time for the opening of the Thomson-East Coast Line that connects to Orchard MRT station, make your way to Puzzle Coffee at ION Orchard basement 1 by heading out from Exit 9.
