who we are.

The Singapore Coffee Association (SCA) was established in the late 1950’s by a group of pioneering coffee traders.

During the ensuing years, coffee trade developed rapidly due to the enterprise and hard work of the traders. Singapore gained recognition as one of the coffee centres of the world.

Today, as a result of the transformation, Singapore Coffee Association’s membership represents all sectors of the coffee industry, from green coffee supply chain providers, international and national roasters to well-known coffee retailers.

We aim:

  • To provide a forum for all sectors of the coffee industry to share information and jointly promote consumption and trade.

  • To create awareness and promote the image of coffee in the community.

  • To represent the coffee industry at national and international forums.

singapore coffee traditional heritage.

 

Enjoyed by Singaporeans since the early 20th century, Singapore coffee has been the drink of choice for coffee lovers looking for their daily caffeine fix. Found in almost every coffee shop and hawker center, Singapore Coffee accounts for more than 70% of coffee consumed here.

The roasting process that creates this coffee is a unique and traditional one. Indonesia EK-1 Coffee Beans are roasted in customized roasting drums at a temperature of just over 180°C for 25 minutes before it is coated in a pot of caramelized raw sugar. Believed to be a variation of the Torrefacto roasting method still common in Argentina, Costa Rica, France, Portugal and Spain, this process is a local practice that gives local coffee its unique taste that many Singaporeans have become so familiar with.

The adaptation of this process by our forefathers in the late 1800s compensates for the weight loss due to moisture displacement during the roasting process and has helped lowered the price of coffee to be enjoyed by both ordinary laborers and wealthy merchants alike. The resulting cup is a coffee that is very dark in color and very strong in aftertaste. Over time, it has become part of our national heritage and in recent years, help sprung a host of retail local coffee chains in retail malls that usually reserved for international coffee chains.

In local terms, White Coffee refers to regular coffee instead of coffee with cream, commonly known by the rest of the world. Black Coffee, or simply Kopi, naturally means the local coffee that is roasted using the Torrefacto method.


Way before the “Grande with Whip Mocha Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee” of the world came to Singapore, we have developed a full set of lingo for the most exacting of coffee drinkers. Try and order a “coffee without milk and less sugar” using local lingo!
