Singaporeans love coffee.
- Since the early 20th century, they enjoy their daily caffeine kick.
- As in Malaysia, the “original” Singapore coffee is roasted with sugar (and margarine) using the Torrefacto method.
- The original preparation you get in many cafes, the so-called Kopi Tiams.
- The coffee is poured into Singapore’s typical large stainless steel cans, which hold huge cotton coffee filters and are called “socks” because of their similarity.
- At the traditional Singapore breakfast you have a kaya toast (toast with coconut jam and butter) with your kopi.
