“Just For A Cup of Good Coffee” that’s the slogan when you visit Mellower Coffee in Singapore, at their Robinson Road or Middle Road cafes. A leading boutique coffee brand from China, they have shown great professionalism and passion in their coffee culture, in a minimalist chic, classy, cosy and comfortable café boutique environment.
I heard about Mellower Coffee and visited their outlet at Robinson Road previously. They had a range of coffee that attracted my attention and I didn’t really get to know more about them during my visit with my friends. At a recent Mellower Coffee tasting event invitation, I got the opportunity to know more about Mellower Coffee, their history and origins, their range of Mellower coffee and their Mellower Coffee Signature beverages.
Established since 2011, a coffee brand from China, adopting a from-plantation-to-cup industry model. They aim to deliver quality speciality coffee through their professionalism, platform and passion for coffee. They strive to be the leading brand in the coffee industry. Mellower Coffee expanded overseas to locations Singapore and Korea, eyeing further expansion into Vietnam and United Kingdom.
After their short presentation, we started with the Mellower coffee tasting and appreciation. Being a coffee lover myself, I was most excited with the tasting and appreciation. Observing how the barista prepares the various coffee beans for tasting, he was meticulous and precise, in ensuring the prescribed amount of coffee powder and water mixing well together to deliver the best coffee tasting appreciation experience for everyone of us there.

Each of their Mellower Single Origin Series has its own unique quality, taste and fragrance. I encourage the coffee lover in you to taste each of them before deciding which is your favourite, since we all have different taste buds and preferences.
Mellower Coffee has a range of coffee products that can be purchased for your own consumption at home or as gifts for your family and friends. They are the Drop Coffee, Coffee Beans and Bag Coffee (do check out their website for more details on their coffee products).
I am going to share on their Drip Coffee, one of the coffee products that I tried during the coffee tasting event. The barista from Mellower Coffee demonstrated how to prepare and setup the Drip Coffee when we want to drink them at home. We also got the opportunity to taste it during the session and it’s pretty good.
Mellower Coffee Signature – Sakura Fubuki
Mellower Coffee has a few signature coffee beverages (check out their website for more information)
- Sweet Little Rain
- Ice Lemon Sparkling Yirgacheffe
- Ice Rose Fresh Cream Lungo
- Sakura Fubuki
During the coffee tasting event, we tried this Mellower Coffee signature drink, the Sakura Fubuki. This is a special coffee beverage and for those who love the cherry blossom, you would be to relate with this unique coffee beverage. Fubuki means snow storm. Therefore, Sakura Fubuki means the wind blowing the sakura petals off from the trees as though it is like a snow storm.
This is a romantic drink, the cherry blossom is only for a short period of time and when the petal falls, it’s the end of the season, just like the first love that we all had, so wonderful yet so short lived, beautiful yet there is a sense of bitterness.
The Sakura Fubuki is presented in two separate segments, the glass contains the Sakura blossom preserve while the test tubes contain two shots of espresso. Before we started to mix them together by pouring the espresso into the glass, everyone of us were busy taking photos of this drink and the pouring process. Once you mixed them together, we would get a taste of bitterness from the espresso, saltiness of the sakura petal preserves and sweetness of the syrup. All these coming together gives a unique and special taste to the Sakura Fubuki.
There is something special about Mellower Coffee, from the quality of their coffee beans selection from different parts of the world, their minimalist chic, cosy and comfortable café boutique environment, their signature and unique coffee beverages.
I am impressed with their boutique café environment, I love the ambience, minimalist design and interiors, along with their various types of coffee under their branding. Starting from their own global procurement of coffee beans, followed by their own independent roasting in Shanghai, into their classy, minimalist boutique café outlets, delivering quality coffee experience and culture to us coffee lovers. Personally, I feel that they have live up to their slogan “Just for a Cup of Good Coffee” , in Chinese “只为一杯好咖啡”.
I would like to thank Mellower Coffee for the invitation to the coffee tasting and appreciation event.
