WE know how important a good cup of coffee is. It gets you in the right mood to kickstart your day, but there can be so much frustration to drink a coffee that isn’t quite right. For sure you can rely on Starbucks or Toast Box, but why not beat the queue and start making coffee from your humble abode?

Instead of turning to packets of three-in-one instant brew, there are a number of local coffee roasters that are offering fresh, intriguing flavour combinations with quality beans sourced from around the world to make your morning coffee at home that much better. Here are three of our favourites.

If you’re looking for coffee with a sweeter and nuttier profile, try Perk Coffee Co.

One to look out for is its Brazil Cerrado, which has notes of milk chocolate, caramel, and toasted hazelnut. This roaster also provides the option of decaf should you need a lower caffeine level.

Perk Coffee Co. comes in whole beans, ground beans, drip bags and Nespresso-compatible coffee pods from SG$14. It can be freshly purchased with or without a subscription. It delivers right to your doorstep within 48 hours of roasting with no shipping fee.
