What to expect at the first ever Singapore Coffee Festival

You might remember that we wrote about the first ever Singapore Coffee Festival happening at the F1 Pit Building from Jun 9-12. To recap, this consumer and trade event will host over 100 exhibitors and activities like talks, panel discussions and workshops, with the focus on Singapore’s coffee heritage.

The event kicks off with an exclusive launch for trade and media partners on Jun 9, and it officially opens to the public from Jun 10. Participating cafes include Common Man Coffee Roasters, Chye Seng Huat Hardware, Dapper Coffee and Knockhouse Supply Co., and those who prefer more traditional brews can opt for Killiney Kopitiam and its signature Hainanese coffee. Coffee nerds should check out Lab Sessions, a series of talks and practical workshops by Common Man Coffee Roasters, The Straits Times and Bettr Barista on topics such as managing a cafe business, the coffee industry, latte art, and chocolate and coffee pairing.

On the entertainment front, there will be live music from local acts and a beauty pop-up by Shiseido offering Japanese confectionaries from Ginza. 

Ticket prices range from $11 for a limited DBS exclusive one-day pass to $13 for a one-day advance general entry pass and $43 for a one-day VIP package that includes access to the VIP lounge, the music stage and workshops as well as a complimentary drink, canapes and express entry at the gate.
