Tiong Hoe Speciality Coffee carries coffee beans from different regions of the world. Different beans are well kept in the respective drawers and labeled with descriptions. Coffee lovers who are interested to know more about their cup of pleasure can have a good read. What's more, Barista Juliana is so friendly and generous to share with you her experience and love about coffee.

After the brief sharing about the coffee origins from different continents, Juliana went on to demonstrate the beans roasting process. What attracts me the most is this antique looking coffee roaster, which apparently working perfectly fine. The irresistible aroma of the roasted beans filled the whole cafe, very pleasant smell.

The highlight of the coffee appreciation session is to learn the arts and science of making coffee. Juliana is very enthused with her sharing of useful tips and simple technique of brewing the perfect cup. Don't worry if you have very little knowledge about coffee, ask her anything and she is more than willing to answer with big smiley. That really makes one feel extra relax in enjoying the cuppa.

It's a very informative session on coffee, from weighing the beans, grinding, to the skills of brewing coffee (the water temperature, the way of pouring water if using the V60 pour over system), smelling the aroma, and finally the tasting and identifying the variety hint of flavours (nutty, floral, spices etc).

Apart from the specialty coffee, Juliana is also good in brewing the expresso-based coffee. However, there is no sign board for price if you realized! You just tips after enjoying the coffee, whatever price you reckon it worths. Sounds cool hey!

I personally love the piccolo latte for the aroma, the silky froth and the full bodied flavour. And of course, not to forget the pretty latte art too!
