What’s Different About Our Coffee?
You may have heard of us after spotting our coffee beans in the embassies, served in global offices, in luxury showrooms, in a cafe or in many homes in Singapore. If you are looking for the best roaster Singapore can find, here is it.
Here we have the finest coffee beans from Italy’s absolute top coffee roasters. Le Piantagioni is a premium coffee brand that was the only specialty coffee brand highlighted by Forbes Magazine as Italy’s top 100 Excellent products. Arcaffè, its sibling company, is entirely dedicated to delivering the finest Italian expression.
This comes as no surprise as the owner Mr. Enrico Meschini was the founder and president of CSC-Certified Speciality Coffee association of Italy. Also, a pioneer member of the Specialty Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE). He is also the International juror for the Cup of Excellence (CoE). The grandest event where the best competition grade beans from around the world is judged professionally to be sold for what it’s worth.
Our extensive range are well received by coffee lovers and coffee aficionados from around the world.
How Can I be Sure That You Are Using Good Specialty Coffee Bean?
It’s true that most of the whole beans sold in the market are falsely advertised or counterfeit speciality coffee. Particularly for coffee powder or instant coffee, it’s not uncommon that they are adulterated with another material to increase the quantity.
The best coffee beans in the world are auctioned off in the Cup of Excellence. The highest integrity in coffee grading where the most expensive coffee is sold at tens of thousands of dollars per sack. We don’t make big claims to have the same grade.
Those coffee beans are also only available in limited lots, unable to provide for consistent supply throughout the year. But our partner Mr. Enrico Meschini is the international Juror for the Cup of Excellence. Who has negotiated exclusive agreements to have access to the best coffee beans from the same plantation but not in the competition range. These are probably the best coffee beans you can get in Singapore at a very reasonable price.

Arcaffè was found by the Meschini family in 1895. Had been serving cafes in Livorno for over 125 years. The old brand was later helmed by Mr. Enrico Meschini who is a visionary and a pioneer to the concept of specialty coffee. Some of the recipe and coffee used are the same as it was in the 1920s. Using high-quality pure Arabica coffee which was considered expensive and exotic at that time, is still considered avant-garde by today’s standards.
If you are looking forward to experiencing drinking authentic Italiano coffee of very high quality. It has to be Arcaffè. Today, the company had improved their coffee significantly by using specialty coffee and new roasting process.

Which Is The Best Coffee For Me?
Well anyone who understands food should tell you that there’s no such thing as the best coffee beans in the world and it will be really difficult to tell which will be suitable.
We have an article on how to pick a specialty coffee from the roaster like a pro which you may find useful for your first order.
Can I Use Your Roasted Coffee Beans?
While everyone has their own favourite coffee recipe, whether a cold brew or a double up coffee. They are still made from roasted coffee.
Our coffees are commonly found in apartment coffee bar counters, used in office cafe corners. Though there are many cafes in Singapore that use our coffee with professional coffee machines. They are also used widely in restaurants that serve good food as well as local coffeeshops served with evaporated or condensed milk.
They are excellent as espresso drinks and can be made into white coffees. That’s espresso with milk like a conventional latte, Spanish latte or cappuccino. Or black coffees like espresso, cold brew, or filter coffee with a dark chocolate or floral notes profile.
Our quality coffee beans should still work as we should have the best coffee roasted to different profiles to produce the cup you are after.
What’s Different With Our Packaging And How Long Can You Keep The Coffee Beans In Singapore?
Many misunderstood how long coffee can be used or only freshly roasted coffees are good. Modern packaging facilities can reduce the oxidization process in coffees.
Our bags are hermetically sealed with the most advanced modified atmospheric systems in Italy. This enables the content to be kept in its sealed bags for a year with minimal deterioration! The pressurized packaging also allows the coffee to age to the same consistency. This eliminates the problem of using coffee that has not rested enough with unpredictable after-roast conditions. Which can produce a deceivingly thick crema produced from retained carbon dioxide. Taste is usually very flat from incomplete degassing.
Such professional practices are not done by most small or medium-sized coffee roasters due to the exorbitant cost. It was also deemed that at least 40% of the one-way valves used in the UK don’t work, with the number larger in Asia. As such, advocating that coffee must be finished within a short time frame was echoed in the community by the many smaller coffee roasters who have not found success with packaging freshly roasted coffee beans for long-term storage.
We do not have this problem so users can stock our coffee with confidence!
How Does It Compare With Other Specialty Coffee Beans Roasters in Singapore?
We used to focus on just professional coffee machines and not really coffee beans in Singapore.
During those times, we did demonstrations in our experimental room, with coffee from the following coffee roasters like Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee Roasters, Common Man Coffee Roasters, Papa Palheta, Dutch Colony, Forty Hands, Nylon Coffee Roasters, Toby’s estate, Oars Coffee Roasters, Perk Coffee, Dutch Colony Coffee Roasters, Maxi Coffee Bar, Homeground Coffee Roasters, Glass Roasters, Bacha Coffee, Baristart coffee, Glyph Supply etc. We can’t say that we tried every coffee bean shop in Singapore but we tried most of the Singapore coffee wholesale agents.
Often they were brought to us by clients or coffee enthusiasts for our coffee experts to test with our coffee machines. We also did tasting in cafes in Singapore like Old Hen Coffee bar cafe, Kith Cafe and more. As you can see from above, we have tried all sorts of coffee beans from Singapore. From Arab street, Robertson Quay, Lavender Street, Bukit Timah, all the way to Frankel Avenue.
Quite a few can taste very similar, particularly single origin coffee. We guess that most of the coffee could be coming from the same green bean supplier. Sometimes the roast is too light, which can make the cup of coffee too acidic.
We are different as our partners in Italy often source their beans from unique coffee farms, directly from award-winning estates. Of course, our Italian partners, who have been roasting coffee since the 1920s, can roast it to its finest potential.
What Can You Not Make With Our Coffee?
Well, you obviously can’t make non-coffee drinks like an iced cereal milk latte or matcha latte even with the best coffee.
How Can Your Coffee Beans Really Help A Business Or User in Singapore?
Here are a few illustrated examples.
Cafe A has to commit to buying a minimum of 6kg of coffee from coffee supplier B for trade price.
However, cafe A could not finish on time and much of them has expired.
We do not have this problem. Coffee is gassed to keep its condition stagnant. Our coffee can be easily kept for up to 6 months in its peak condition, usable for up to 18 months! We do not over-order our supplies and our fast turnover ensures that the pack that you receive is fresh enough. It is very rare for small roasters to purchase sophisticated equipment and the best packaging to protect their coffee like how it’s done in Italy.
Cafe A ordered 6kg of coffee from Supplier B. Cafe A noticed that the consistency in each bag is different. They noticed that the taste, the body and characteristics of flavours are all different. This makes the operator hard to control its quality and consistency
This is because Supplier B roasts in small batches. Even if the coffee may come from the same farm, most farmers are not able to produce consistent crops in every section of their farm. Meaning every sack of their coffee are of different quality, making it taste different.
In addition to that, the supplier roasts their coffee in smaller capacity roasters, which may result in slight different degrees of roast in every batch. Our coffee that are CSC certified ensures that the coffee beans and roasting are consistent. A panel of trained tasters compare that the currently roasted batch is of the same profile as the previous batch. They are tested multiple times when the coffee is in its raw form. They are also tested when they are made into espresso in their end result.
User X’s grinder suddenly stopped working after grinding a pack of beans from Supplier B. Upon checking, he found a piece of stone or metal among the coffee beans
Foreign objects in coffee are very common. Often, de-pulped coffee is laid around the floor and dried for a number of days. It will be easy for foreign objects to land among the coffee beans. We don’t have this problem as our suppliers have machines that destone hard objects hidden among the beans. This is done not once but at least twice with different methods to reduce the chance of missing out.
Cafe A strives to serve high-quality coffee. However, the European expatriates’ feedback that their favourite beverage, espresso served doesn’t taste anything similar to what they have at home.
This is common feedback received in our experimental room. Our coffee is roasted in Italy, by master roasters who spent decades perfecting their skill. If they want to taste the taste of coffee from home, of course, you need to get someone from home to roast their coffee.
