The good news is, they're coming to Singapore.

In an Instagram account created for the Singapore outlet, a post on March 31 announced that the coffee shop might even as soon as "next weekend" (which we take to mean this weekend...?):

That's if the shop's construction goes smoothly, of course.

Founded by Japanese Kenneth Shoji, the chain's first outlet opened in Hong Kong and has since expanded to Japan, China, Germany, France, and more.

The brand currently has 33 stores in 10 countries.

% Arabica is famous for roasting their own coffee, of which they have over two dozen varieties. Its latte art and gorgeous interior designs also fare well on Instagram.

Here's a look at their coffee and store interiors overseas:
