Nanyang Old Coffee as Landmark

Sometimes we overheard customers on mobile saying:" I'm now at Nanyang Old Coffee......" we're much delighted that we became a landmark although we been there for just six months.

Customer's Office Moved!

Recently there are quite a number of customers mentioned that their office will be relocated to somewhere else. It's sad after been building some rapport with them. But looking at the brighter side we also have more new customers that give Nanyang Old Coffee their support.

Customer's Feedback

Quite often new customers will comeby and gives good comments on our coffee.

Yestersday a customer just came back from Australia after his 5 years stay there kept calling me with great excitement saying :" How I missed Singapore Coffee, your coffee bring me back to the earlier days where coffee used to be so good!"

I asked him is Nanyang Old Coffee his first cup of Singapore coffee after his return, he said:" No lah, had one but not very good."

Customers good feedback always give me great job satisfaction and it just make my day after hearing such remarks!

Customer's responsed after the Price Raised

We expected a 10% decrease of customers after the raised but instead we have an 10%-15% increase in new customers.

We really have to thanks the regular customers for their supports and understandings. The feedback from them are they don't mind paying extra for a good coffee.

Heartfelt thanks again!

Price Increased

Our price for a Kopi O (Coffee Black) is 60 cents for a 6oz cup. But due to the increase of the coffee beans, we have no choice but to increase by 10 cents to maintain the excellent quality of our coffee.

I believe we will probably loose 10% of customers due to the raised but his is also a test of whether our customers will appreciate more of our quality coffee or just our cheap price.

Why Selling Coffee

Once there was a customer asking me why I want to sell coffee? I went blank for a while and then I realised that the answer was that simple - "Just to serve someone an excellent cup of Singapore Coffee!".

Singapore Coffee is unqiue in it own way, you can never to drink such coffee in any part of the world (beside Malaysia). The standard of Singapore Traditional Coffee is getting worse, to let everyone taste the authentic Singapore Coffee that we use to have and promote it to the rest of the world is my dream.

Iced Kopi & Iced Teh

Iced Kopi & Iced Teh is chilled by pouring it into a cocktail shaker with ice, after shaking then pour into a dome shaped cup. With this treatment, you will have a really iced cool kopi or teh.

Kaya Butter Toast

A good coffee must come with a good Kaya Butter Toast.

Our toast are crispy on the outer layer and tender on the inner layer. Being prepared in such way gives you crunchy and tender of the fresh bread in one bite. Spread with kaya (rich in egg and coconut but not too sweet) with sliced butter.

Meeting People

Operating a coffee stall allow me to be able to meeting people from all wok of life. Sometimes we are happy to still see customers drinking Singapore coffee in the very traditional way by pouring the coffee into the plate and drink from the plate. Once I was very surprise that one Canadian dipping the kaya toast into the half boiled eggs.

Making The Perfect Cup Of Singapore Coffee

There are many factors in making a good cup of Singapore coffee.

From coffee beans to right amount of coffee powder to right amount of water. Right temperature, brewing time and the
amount of condensed milk (sweetener) and full cream milk.

The Singapore Way to Order a Cup of Coffee

If you want to order your coffee the Singaporeans way when you visit a traditional coffee shop:

Kopi O - Coffee with sugar
Kopi - Coffee with condensed milk
Kopi C - Coffee with additional of evaporated milk
Kopi Siew Tai - Coffee less sweet
