Coffee lovers in the east of Singapore, rejoice! Baristart Coffee is opening a pop-up store along Joo Chiat Road from Oct 3 to 12.

It will be its first foray into the east, where cafes seem to be popping up in quick succession. 

Hailing all the way from Hokkaido, Japan, Baristart Coffee started out in June 2015 as a simple coffee stand. It opened its first store in Singapore on Tras Street in 2019 that’s now temporarily closed for upgrading (as of this article’s publication on Sept 29) and has a second store on the Sentosa resort island.

The pop-up concept will offer the coffee chain’s signature black or white coffee, made fresh using rich, full-cream Hokkaido Biei jersey milk. The premium milk gives a rich and creamy texture, with a slight tinge of sweetness, to the drink.

Hokkaido Biei milk is also used to make the cream in Baristart’s famous cream puffs, which will be available at the pop-up, too. Think crisp choux pastry stuffed with a generous amount of creamy custard, then sprinkled with delectable crisps and sugary bits.

Other treats at the pop-up include its strawberry fruit sando. It’s a uniquely Japanese invention of fruit encased in fresh whipped cream and sandwiched between fluffy Japanese milk bread called shokupan.

As part of the opening, the coffee joint is giving away free Baristart stickers for customers who spend a minimum of S$30 in a single receipt. The promotion is limited to the first 10 customers daily.

Baristart Coffee is on the GrabFood delivery service. You can also book a ride there.
