Following in the footsteps of young hawkerpreneurs behind hipster kopi stalls Generation Coffee Roasters and Mad Roaster is Daylight Coffee, a new entrant at Amoy Street Food Centre serving up specialty coffee at hawker prices.
The shop opened in October 2023, with a cute cartoon logo of a coffee cup with googly eyes.
They’re still in the process of finalising their menu, and “will be launching new coffee choices from time to time”. One of their potential new creations is this Dirty Matcha (green tea latte spiked with coffee).
Daylight Coffee’s cuppas are all brewed with their S$10,000 espresso machine, and start from S$1.90 for kopi, kopi O and kopi C that’s made with the aforementioned Grade 1 Robusta beans that Jass says are “similar to Nanyang beans but not roasted with (the unhealthier) sugar and margarine”.
Their “specialty coffees” are brewed with more premium Arabica beans, and include standard beverages like black coffee (S$3.30 hot, S$3.80 iced), white coffee (S$3.50 hot, S$4 iced), espresso double shot (S$3.20), and a selection of caramel, chocolate or vanilla lattes (S$4 hot, S$4.50 iced).
