Whenever I am at Upper Thomson, it rained. The first time when I went to Salted Caramel, it rained. The second time, when I checked out November 8, it rained and now the third time at Oz Specialty Coffee, it also rained. What a phenomena?!
Oz Specialty Coffee is a tiny cafe with six indoor chairs and more outdoor seats (as compared to indoor).
Though you find a stairs leading to a “second” storey, there isn’t any seats. It is their storage area.
It has a pretty good selection on its menu with cold and hot beverages, some all day breakfast items, sandwiches and liege waffles & ice cream. I like their menu very much. Oh ya, they have some cakes; the carrot cake and chocolate fudge cakes, both look very delicious.
I ordered only a cup of cappuccino as it was right after lunch that I dropped by the cafe. Moreover, it was the coffee that I wanted to try. I read a few blogs, mostly are positive with the coffee. Their coffee beans are from Pacamara. Oz Specialty Coffee has a special house blend named the Roadster Blend.
The first sip taste like rojak. For the non-Singaporeans who are reading this post, I mean a mixture of independent taste. There are taste of fruits, floral, caramel, beany, chocolate milk … each emitting their own taste and it didn’t seems to match well with each other. I didn’t like it at first. With subsequent sips, as all the different flavours have concentrated in the mouth and magically it gave off a distinct aroma and I began to enjoy the coffee.
While I was hanging around in the cafe, waiting patiently for the rain to stop, a customer ordered a hand brew coffee and I took a photo of the barista carefully and passionately brewing the coffee.
Oz Specialty serves nice coffee. Its coffee is not the robust kind so if you are looking for that sort of coffee, then the Roadster Blend would probably not for you. It has a cosy ambience. The bonus is there is free WiFi. And if you like their coffee, you can buy the coffee beans home too.
