McCafé in Singapore has come a long way since 2003 and having been a barista with McCafé from 2006-2007, I am delighted to find out that McCafé now offers a wider range of quality coffee and tantalising treats.

New delightful treats at McCafé Singapore: Mango Cheesecake, Strawberry Cheesecake, Oreo Cheesecake

Apart from the new menu offerings, you can now choose to include a shot of flavoured syrup for just an additional SGD$0.70. Available in 3 different flavours [roasted almond, chocolate, and caramel], you can create your own unique drinks that expresses your creativity.

If your creativity is being stifled, you might want to try your hands at some simple latte art. We trawled YouTube for some tutorial videos on creating fanciful latte art using chocolate syrup so you might want to try your hands on perfecting those designs before you move on to something more challenging at McCafé Singapore.

What is even more exciting to know is that McCafé Singapore will be conducting a series of Coffee Appreciation Workshops for young coffee lovers to rediscover coffee in a fun and interactive way. From discovering the history of coffee and the origin of McCafé, to handling the coffee machine, watching a latte art presentation, and trying first-hand cappuccino preparation, participants will be learning from the McCafé team of talented Baristas led by McCafé Master Trainer, Mr Hilmi Mohamed, who has 10 years of experience in the coffee industry!

Participants will learn how to froth milk like a professional McCafé Barista.

The 3-hour workshop will also include a latte art and plate art session where participants can learn to express their creativity using freshly-brewed coffee as their canvass for their imagination. The workshops are kept intimate and McCafé Singapore only accepts 6 to 10 people per session so as to foster greater interaction and engagement with participants.

The first two Coffee Appreciation Workshops by McCafé Singapore will be taking place on 6 September 2014 and 13 September 2014; and the next two sessions are slated to take place sometime in December 2014. If you are interested to participate in the McCafé Coffee Appreciation Workshops, simply drop an email to

Registration will take place from 18 August 2014 to 1 September 2014 and it is only open to youths [16 to 35 years old].
