And all that coffee is great, but just look at this place! The pink neon, the wood pops, the showroom-esque feel. It’s majestic. I’d shop there but I’m already kinda afraid I would break something… and I don’t live in Singapore, but mostly the part about breaking things. The Bean Shop will also feature a “curated selection of coffee brewing equipment and accessories.” co-founder and CEO Keyis Ng had this to say:

We’ve been sharing the love for specialty coffee with our customers online for a year now and to celebrate our 1st anniversary, we are excited to be extending it offline… Enjoying specialty coffee is a sensory journey and as an e-commerce platform, we are excited and for the first time, we will be bringing it into a real life, physical experience for our customers.

The Bean Shop is open now from 11am to 8pm daily.
