Next a private-access-only tour to one of the few remaining coffee factories in Singapore that roast coffee beans the local way.

Learn the different ways to order coffee and tea the local colloquial way and what they mean. Then the true test! Order it yourself with the coffee shop and see if you get what you ordered. Along with coffee, you will have a scrumptious spread of the local breakfast.
