You know what no one ever says about e-commerce businesses? “This build-out is bonkers.” You just click, click, click and that is that; it’s steamlined and a little boring. But there is one e-tail site has made the jump into click-and-mortar, and their build-out is bonkers.
CafeBond.com is a Singapore-based e-tailer of specialty coffee from Australia, Japan, Taiwan, and Malaysia and they have just opened the ridiculously beautiful The Bean Shop in Singapore’s Millenia Walk mall.
According to the press release, The Bean Shop will be “Singapore’s first specialty coffee bean-only retail store” and will some of the best selling coffees from “Asia’s largest specialty coffee e-tailer.” Roasters include Seven Seeds Coffee, Market Lane, and Ona Coffee from Australia; Simple Kaffa from Taiwan; Fulgen Coffee from Japan; and VCR Coffee and Cloud Catcher from Malaysia, amongst others.
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.”
Cafebond.com co-founder and CEO Keyis Ng had this to say:
The Bean Shop is open now from 11am to 8pm daily.
