Singapore Coffee Festival 2016: The Perfect Brew For Cafehopping and Coffee Lovers

If you are still wondering what to do this weekend, here's a suggestion: Make a trip down to the inaugural Singapore Coffee Festival event happening at the F1 Pit Building. I was there during the Trade and Media Day on Thursday. Public are able to enter into this ticketed event from 10 to 12 June 2016 (Friday to Sunday). Here is a quick post of some of the booths located at Level 2 of the event. Check out other coffee/cafe/lifestyle booths at Level 3 too. I was unable to visit the ones at Level 3 (at the time of writing as I had to head for a course).

Sample and purchase Lorgan & Sons bottled cold brew at the Singapore Coffee Festival. The company (Established by Lorgan Wong and his two sons) also supplies home and cafe owners with cold and nitro-brewing equipment (for sale/leasing). Their unique coffee tricycle is also available for hire, where you can serve cold brew draft on tap to your event guests. Great idea to serve to the coffee lovers at your events, parties or wedding.


For potential and current F&B owners, Detpak is the answer to your packaging needs.

Their sales guy, Mark, introduced me to their array of eco-friendly packaging products range from cups, bowls, bags, napkins, etc. Being someone who tries to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, I was intrigued by the whole Eco-conscious supply chain that Detpak practices. One of Detpak's unique product offering is the Digital Cups, where digital and dimensional designs can be printed on the cups. Certainly a brilliant branding and marketing strategy!

I went nuts at all the healthy snack booths at the Singapore Coffee Festival as I reallllllly love healthy snacks and nuts. And ever since last year during my months in UK, I started snacking on healthy snacks since it was widely available there. I am glad to see that this whole healthy food snacking culture is getting more popular in Singapore. Even when I head to the cinemas to watch movies, I always bring along my healthy snack such as baked nuts, mixed nuts, to chew on. No popcorn and nacho chips for me! Uh uh~


Ann from The Whole Kitchen shared with me on their gourmet healthy food.

Superfood Pili Nuts from Pili Pushers
 photo P1030077__.jpg


The nuts from Pili Pushers are plucked from the pili trees at the foot of the majestic volcanoes in the lush rainforests of Philippines. Apparently, farmers climb these tress to pluc the ripe pili fruits. Skilled artisans crack each hard shell with great precision to extract the nuts. These food are all activated nuts so as to keep them raw, boost their nutritional availability and improving their digestibility.


Just to share, Pili nuts have 869% more vitamin E than almonds and 680% less carbohydrates than pistachios. Pili Pushers share the booth with heathy food and juice company Daily Juice. Daily juice offers cold-pressed juice, acai bowls, healthy snacks and salads, and are available for islandwide delivery, workshops, events and catering.

Was drawn to this booth due to the Rosella Tea, and that was when
I got to talk to May, whose company brought in the East Bali Cashews brand into Singapore.
 photo P1030091_.jpg


May shared with me on the story behind this social enterprise brand, East Bali Cashews, and how it was founded. The founder was a NGO volunteer in Bali and started this company to hire Indonesian mothers to work in the premises so that they can earn an income for their families. What was interesting is that a daycare centre was set up so that the children of these female workers can be placed there. In this way, the mothers can work in peace, knowing that their precious offspring are well taken care of - Provided with education, showers and meals. Check out [this BBC article] to learn more. At this booth, I bought the Cashew Crumble which consists of Roasted Snack Mix with Cocoa Chips, Rosella, Coconut and Caramel ($3.50) and a bag of Rosella Tea ($3.50). And I had the pack of Popcorn which is glazed with caramel and tossed in cashews ($2) too.
