Foreword Coffee Roasters

Foreword Coffee Roasters is a coffee chain and social enterprise which serves speciality coffee from Asia, while training and hiring persons with disabilities and special needs in their coffee kiosks to spread more awareness and empower the differently-abled in Singapore.

Foreword Coffee Roasters has opened its 5th outlet at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in National University of Singapore (NUS). But before you make a trip there, do note that the gorgeous coffee shop is currently open to NUS staff and students only.

Foreword Coffee Roasters serves a myriad of coffee drinks and a few signature concoctions. In addition to these cuppas, they also offer rice bowls, waffles, pastries and cakes at the new outlet.

Timeless Yuan Yang Foreword Coffee

One of Foreword Coffee Roasters’s signature drinks is the Timeless Yuan Yang (S$6.50). A ristretto shot of their Yunnan Ouyang coffee blend with an Earl Grey tea ice ball blends perfectly with milk.

The first sip brought out the bright flavour of the Earl Grey instantly and as it faded on your tastebuds, the fruity yet bitter note of the Yunnan Ouyang Coffee could be tasted. It was an excellent modern rendition of the traditional Yuan Yang.

70% Hot Chocolate Foreword Coffee

Foreword Coffee Roasters’s next signature drink, the 70% Dark Chocolate (S$6.50), was a delight to drink. This would be perfect for those who enjoy a milkier hot chocolate drink but want that rich chocolate aroma.

The new space is using upcycled furniture—made of milk bottles and caps—which are made by sustainability partners with different expertise that turn waste into gems.

To further reduce waiting time, self-collection at UTown is available for NUS staff and students now, throughout this Phase 2 (HA)! Collection timings are from 12pm – 2pm with a minimum order of S$20.

Group Shot Foreword Coffee

To celebrate the opening of the new outlet at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, Foreword Coffee Roaster has a special opening drink—Coconut / Attap Seed Ice Cream Latte! This special opening drink is also available at their Canberra Plaza and Temasek Shophouse outlets.
