We all know it’s in the beans.
The quality of your cup of coffee greatly depends on the coffee beans you use. What’s the use of state-of-the-art espresso machines if you don’t have the best ingredients? Well today, we are taking a look at the best places in Singapore where you can get top-grade coffee beans.
1. Common Man Coffee Roaster

This is probably one of the smallest and most humble coffee shop brands on this list. But don’t judge a book by its cover, as Nylon is known to offer exceptional quality coffee beans at a remarkably affordable price due to its formidable partnerships with coffee farmers.
4. Cold Brew Bootstrap Beverages
If you need a stronger caffeine than espresso, then you should try cold brew coffee. This is generally because the cold brew process requires more coffee beans, it can be two to three times the number. As the name implies, cold brew coffee goes through the brewing process with cold water at room temperature or cold and usually takes hours.
Every drop of cold brew coffee has a distinctive taste even though it is compared to the same coffee beans but brewed with hot water. Usually they will be milder and have low acidity, a perfect option for those who have a weak stomach. Now there are bottled cold brew coffee like the one made by Bootstrap Beverage. Find your Bootstrap Beverage Coffee here.
5. Dutch Colony Coffee
