About this Event

How do you best like your coffee? Is it that hot, fragrant cup of Nanyang-style Kopi from the coffee shop near your house? Or is it that warm cup of specialty coffee brewed at your favourite café?

One Bean, Many Coffee brings Singaporeans to coffee factories, kopitiams and cafes to learn more about the art of perfecting that cup of coffee.

About the Company

As you probably can guess from its name, this coffee chain specialises in serving Nanyang coffee. The brand differentiates itself from its competitors by using traditional roasting and brewing processes from the 1940s and avoiding the use of additives like corn, sesame seed and wheat grain.

Lim Eng Lam is the second-generation owner of his family’s coffee business. He inherited the roastery from his uncle sometime after joining the family business in 2005. Both uncle and nephew had ventured into the hawker trade in the hopes of promoting traditional Nanyang coffee among younger generations of coffee drinkers.

Determined to preserve Nanyang coffee heritage, Mr Lim shared that he hit the books, consulted with coffee experts and combed through the archives to come up with the perfect rustic blend of java. His goal: to recreate the flavour profile of the 1940s and 1950s before additives like maize were added.

“I wondered how something so good hadn’t already been actively promoted locally and abroad. I wondered if we could make more out of this shop itself. I put these questions and ideas together in the hopes of pioneering a new era for our coffee shops. Eventually we managed to roll out a series of Nanyang-style coffeehouses.”
