Singaporeans who love to cafe hop will be pleased to know that a cafe event — Cafe Culture — will be taking place from August 29 to September 1, 2019, at Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands.

This event will allow cafe lovers to experience the world’s best cafe concepts all in one location, from the famous Lune Croissanterie in Melbourne all the way to Coffee Collective from Copenhagen, Denmark.

10 cafes and eateries will be at the event.

Cafe line-up

The Coffee Collective was founded in 2007 with a focus on ethical coffee trading, sustainability and creating the best coffee experiences in the world.

Their coffees are roasted daily and served both in-store as well as to wholesale customers.

In addition, they have also won several awards, including gold in both the World Barista Championship and World Cup Tasting Championships.

2. Switch Coffee Tokyo from Tokyo, Japan

Switch Coffee Tokyo is a cafe in Meguro, Tokyo that sources and roasts coffee beans from quality producers all over the globe.

4. Lune Croissanterie from Melbourne, Australia

In 2016, Lune was commended by The Guardian for making “The World’s Best Croissants”.

The croissanterie claims to neither be a shop nor a factory, but simply a “celebration of the creation, complexity and ultimate enjoyment of a croissant”.
