One Man Coffee @ Fusionpolis ~ Serving Aromatic Coffee & Delicious Sandwiches

One Man Coffee at Upper Thomson Road is one of the few cafés in Singapore which I make frequent return visits to, for the simple reason that I like their coffee.

Besides the other outlet at Serangoon Village, their latest branch to open is at the business hub of Fusionpolis near Buona Vista (nearest mrt: CC23 One-North).

The location makes it perfect for office executives in the area whose morning doesn't start until they have their first cuppa of the day. Wake up! Wake up!

And such aromatic coffee to wake up to.

At time of our visit, the coffee joint was serving an espresso blend from Melbourne which is curated by Axil Coffee Roasters, and Nylon Coffee Roasters Four Chairs Seasonal Espresso Blend.

One would find it easy to appreciate the rick, milk chocolatey mouthfeel with cherry and caramel sweetness of the former, as well as the lingering finish and hints of pecan and cocoa in the latter.

But no matter how great the coffee blend is, connoisseurs would know that it takes a skillful barista to bring out the excellence in it.

We had the young and promising (some say: cute) Alistair Seetho pulling the shots for us, satisfying our afternoon craving for a caffeine shot by much.

Prices are in the usual range: Espresso ($3), Long Black ($4), Caffe Latte ($4.50), Cappuccino ($4.50), Ice White ($6), Ice Mocha ($6.50), Hot Chocolate ($6), Iced Matcha Latta ($6).

As this outlet is more of a takeaway concept, there is only a standing bar, and seating is pretty limited with only a round communal table that can sit perhaps 5 people.

Not that it matters much though, as the space is sufficient for a coffee and that quick breakfast or lunch bite.

A variety of sandwiches such as Truffle Ham & Cheese Croissant ($7), Vietnamese Pork Belly Ciabatta ($8), Bacon & Cheese Ciabatta ($8) are available. It may sound ordinary, but our Breakfast Burger ($6) of moist scrambled eggs paired with savory sweet bacon jam and grilled tomatoes hugged by soft fluffy buns, was exceedingly enjoyable.

The offerings at One Man Coffee at Fusionpolis is undoubtedly notches up from the usual big-name cafe chains.

What a gem addition to the area!
