What started as New Zealand’s first coffee cart, roasting coffee in the back of a garage in 1989, Allpress Espresso is now an internationally acclaimed coffee roasting brand that is served by over 1200 establishments around the world. Coffee fans who frequent local cafes such as the likes of Plain Vanilla and Baker & Cook would be familiar with the iconic New Zealand label. Well, good news. For the first time ever, Allpress Espresso will have its very own cafe and retail pop-up in Singapore at the trendy Tanjong Pagar enclave.
The six-month pop-up is set to headline with two Allpress signature medium roast blends. The first is the well-balanced Espresso Blend that offers notes of caramel, milk chocolate and dark fruits while the other is the Browns Mill Organic which leans gently towards an acidic blend with toffee and citrus notes. Of course, quintessential brews are also available and start from $5. There is also a pour-over bar that features a seasonal single-origin bean ( from $8) brewed with either the V60 or the Kalita.
In the munch section, there are savoury bagels, pastries, cakes and ice creams by The Dark Gallery to pair. Think coffee-inspired creations such as coffee basque cheesecake ($8), espresso chocolate granola jar ($8), dirty caramel chips ice cream ($6) and even a vegan-friendly cold brew sorbet ($6). For takeaways, the pop-up will also tease limited edition Allpress merch such as shirts and totes as well as Allpress Espresso’s range of coffee products.
