La Kopi Coffee Festival

Come celebrate community and heritage over a good old-fashioned kopi. Frankly I’m more of a tea person but well, I know many who can’t live without their caffeine fixes.

La Kopi 2019 is a fun-filled weekend designed to raise awareness and appreciation of Singapore Coffee
and Bakeries, with the support of its host, the Singapore Coffee Association. Sounds fun already!

Opening hours:
25 January and 26 January – 11.00am to 9.00pm
27 January – 11.00am to 7.00pm
Singapore Expo Hall 5B
1 Expo Dr, Singapore 486150

And if you’re in for some local humor do watch their video here

Do you prefer a kopi or a flat white? I reckon I like a flat white more . How about
some kuehs to go with that or are croissants more up your alley? I love all things carb but damn it gluten intolerence…….

Anyhoo with La Kopi 2019, you won’t have to choose as it unites the traditional and modern.
With good old coffee and desserts available, this is the event to be at with your favouritest people where
you can expect real good food with real good company! I saw a good list of brands I know like Bialette (which i first came across at Takashimaya because of their super unit coffee pots) their Bialette Moka induction which doesn’t come cheap but is certainly fancy,and then percolate and more.

The one-of-a-kind coffee festival will be held at Singapore Expo Hall from 25 January to 27 January
2019 and occupies 4,000 sqm with almost 70 vendors in attendance with some even hailing from
Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia and Hong Kong. It’s like a coffee tour without leaving the country! lol

There will be plenty of hands-on activities and events as well as a variety of local and foreign
coffee roasters and accompanying food products available. These provide friends and families
opportunities to chill, have a cuppa, educate and enrich themselves on the coffee industry and to
bond and build a sense of community.

If you’re in the community then perhaps you’ll know the 5 local baristas that will participate in the First Live Barista Competition @ Coffee Festival


La Kopi will be first local coffee consumer festival to host a live barista competition sanctioned by the  World Coffee Events. Witness the heated contest between the hottest talents amongst baristas in Singapore as they compete to extract the perfect cup of espresso and brew the most flavorful coffee. Coffee enthusiasts will be sure to enjoy this showcase of skill and talent in the annual Singapore National Barista Championship 2019 and Singapore National Brewers Cup 2019.

Come reminisce the good old days with classic activities like marbles (“gor li”), hopscotch, five
stones and coffee cupping. When you are done indulging in your childhood games, why not
experience a slew of millennial-friendly workshops?

Experiment with block printing on tote bags
with WithAutumn, silk screen printing or coffee cup silk screen!Frankly I also want to try this hahaha
