Celebrate the season with a cuppa coffee

Christmas is among the coolest periods of the year in sunny Singapore, so what better time than this to sit back and relax with friends and family while enjoying a cuppa pipin' hot coffee?

With numerous coffee joints sprouting around the island, coffee lovers are spoilt for choice. My Paper checks out a few for your festive dose of caffeine.

OLD-SCHOOL FLAVOURS

Toast Box, known for updating old-school flavours, is peddling Kopi Lo, a festive twist to the traditional Nanyang Kopi.

Priced at $3.90, the ingenious concoction of kopi with a dash of Milo is adorned with chocolate candy and a wafer stick for that extra zing. Taste the bitter caffeine undertone topped with a sweet aftertaste.

CLASSIC MODERN BREWS

Spinelli, known for its freshly-roasted coffee, is introducing a series of new concoctions featuring gingerbread.

Coffee addicts can now enjoy its Gingerbread Latte and Gingerbread Spin. Non-caffeine drinkers can take a pick of Iced or Hot Gingerbread Chocolate. Priced from $5 to $7, they are available now.

Starbucks, meanwhile, has brought back three hot Christmas favourites, namely, the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha, Toffee Nut Latte and Peppermint Mocha.

Priced from $6.50 to $8.10 (depending on size and choice of drink), they are available at all Starbucks outlets till Jan 2 next year.

SPECIALITY BREWS

For those who prefer something personalised, make your way down to espressolab Singapore.

Located at 13 Bali Lane, the four-month-old store not only uses 100 per cent Arabica beans to make its espresso and espresso-based drinks (including mocha, latte and cappucino, among others), but it can also serve them with latte art.

A barista will foam milk to a creamy consistency and pour it onto the coffee to create patterns such as flowers and hearts. Each cup of coffee costs between $3.50 and $7.50.

The self-styled indie cafe Coffeesmith, located at 02-11, 62 Collyer Quay, also boasts latte art with its strong double-shot espressos. Prices of its coffee range from $3.50 to $6.50.
