Back in the old golden grandma kopi-o days, coffee beans were roasted in the big wok heated by charcoal, blended and brew. Reminiscing as a young child, I refused to wake up until I smell the lovely aroma of my grandma’s kopi-o. When her kopi is done, it’s time to wake up. She used to pair it with Yau Char Kwai (or Chinese fried churros), sipping her cup of kopi-o and listening to her favourite Teresa Teng song.
These days, instant 3-in-1 coffees, specialty coffee shops and cold brew coffee are the only coffee I smell when I am up and about on my way to work. Anytime, anywhere, we are bound to pass by a coffee shop. There are good and bad coffees I give you that, and at eatigo, we have a selection of coffee places for you to enjoy that wonderful first aromatic cup of the day. Whether we’re shaking off a hangover, mustering the courage to face the day or the usual jumpstart for our fuzzy brains, coffee beckons – and we can never say “No”!
We all love a good cup of coffee, made even better with a welcoming ambience and fantastic company. Stepping into the aroma of coffee, doesn’t it make you wonder who created this aromatic wonder (cue Wonda coffee’s catchy jingle!). Nespresso and George Clooney is playing in my mind too, where George Clooney gives Nespresso a that unforgettable sense of “je ne sais quoi” or put simply, that certain quality that eludes us. Nowadays, coffee marketers not only boast about the variety of coffees they offer, they give these coffees a little personality as well.
Now let’s get ready to head out as we celebrate this International Coffee Day, expanding our repertoire of taste and senses with an exciting coffee adventure all without burning a hole in our pockets! We have different themes for your different date types too!
