“I will go all lengths to find great coffee. For purists like me, the espresso brewing method magnifies the potential and will extract all the goodness of a coffee bean or blend. But it can also be disappointing as it is hard to get it right. When it does go wrong, it can be an [...]
If you are visiting my site for the past week, you will be disappointed that my blog is down.

So what are the mods [...]
On the last FHM, I was glad to be at the Barista Coffee counter to meet Jack Hanna in person. For you who do not know, Jack was the 2007 World Latte Champion. Jack not only won with his signature design but, in a very impressive display of talent, Jack poured identical rosettas behind his [...]
My last destination of the day is Cafe Oriole @ Somerset Road. This place is run by Keith Loh (the owner) and John Ting (head barista).
