The Connoisseur Concerto has launched its new concept store for their reopening at Great World.

More commonly known as tcc, the cafe chain has more than 10 outlets islandwide and one in Tokyo, and has carved a niche for itself with its gourmet coffees and creative beverages.

The caffè officially reopened on Dec. 29, 2020.

The refurbished premises has a woody earthiness and marble textures, with a floral-adorned façade combined with bronze finishing.

The Great World outlet's menu is distinct from the main menu at other TCC outlets.


Those who are into nutty flavours may be keen to try the new Pistachio Latte (S$7.80) and Black Sesame Macchiato (S$7.80).

The former is a concoction of espresso, roasted Sicilian pistachio and frothed milk.

The latter consists of rich velvety black sesame with milk froth, served with youtiao (fried dough fritters).

Exclusive to the Great World outlet, tcc's Cold Brew (S$6.80) is served in a glass of iced coffee cubes with fresh milk on the side.

The coffee is made with premium Arabica coffee blends on a 12-hour slow drip.

If you're the adventurous sort who likes a spicy kick, the Fiery Punch (S$8) delivers a sweet-spicy combination of peach and spicy mango flavours.

For a more boujie coffee experience, try the Hacienda La Esmeralda Geisha (S$19.80) that is touted the world’s most sought-after coffee.

It is a fruity, silky tea-like coffee that has an intense flavour profile.
