There’s A Hidden Coffee Powder Factory In Paya Lebar With Retro Knick-Knacks For Caffeine Lovers

Ho Tit Coffee Powder Factory in Singapore


This shop in Paya Lebar is easily mistaken as a new cafe or restaurant to the untrained eye. But lo and behold, Ho Tit Coffee Powder Factory isn’t just a hipster cafe with a vintage-sounding name; it’s an actual coffee roasting factory. Curious? Here’s what you can expect if you’re planning a visit.

There’s already a photo spot before you enter. The faded signboard, rustic gates, and surrounding plants all make for an IG-worthy storefront. Once you’re done snapping your OOTDs here, walk through the metal gates and you’ll be transported to the early ‘90s.

Chances are, you’ll be greeted by the shop’s friendly owners – Dominic and Cynthia. Feel free to have a chat with them; they’re known to be knowledgeable about all things coffee and are quick to share with visitors. Find out how and why Cynthia curated the coffee bean selections, and how Dominic runs the place as a second-generation owner. It’s all pretty interesting.

Then, take a quick lap around the place and you’ll notice an array of retro trinkets and mementos displayed. Take the classic marble-top table and wooden chairs for example – you can easily take Pinterest-worthy pictures here.

We also spotted an antique coffee grinder, radios, CDs, and even weighing scales that aren’t battery operated – something we don’t commonly see. Remember to be careful when browsing these items, given that most of them are probably fragile and older than some of us.  


Browse coffee beans, powders & drip bags

If all that talk about caffeine has got you buzzin’ with excitement, go peruse their wide selection of coffee beans and powders. There are Arabica beans from Indonesia, Brazil, Malaysia, and Columbia. Those well-versed in caffeine will know that these places produce quality beans.

Ho Tit Coffee Powder Factory also sells drip coffee sachets that come in 5 flavours, including 1 that has faint herbal notes thanks to the ginseng used. If you’re unfamiliar about the art of coffee brewing, go ahead and ask the owners the how-tos. They might even throw in some coffee samples and snacks to pair with your beverage.
