Too many workdays and not enough coffee? We feel you.

For cocoa connoisseurs, this one won’t disappoint. Opt for Whole Lotta Cocoa by Cocoa Please!

Die-hard Thai tea lovers, you don’t want to miss out on this one. ZIGMA N brews out one of the best Thai teas in town.

When it comes to food, anything grandma-related is almost always heavenly, and this one is no exception. Although you can get the milk tea and cold drip from Grandma House to deliver, we suggest you go for their signature product – vanilla syrup made from 100% Madagascar vanilla beans and free of artificial colour. It’s an easy yet elegant way to amp up your everyday homebrew or even homebake.

Fika & Co. Cafe should be your move if you love innovative yet flavoursome drinks. And although it’s good to check out their beautifully-decorated branches over at Singha Complex and Jebi House (Ari), getting their Dalgona Latte or Coconut Pandan Latte to enjoy within the comfort of your home also sounds like a cosy idea.

You read that right. Beloved Soi Nana gin bar Teens of Thailand has been causing much furore as the venue has started selling not cocktails but coffee and tea over the past week. Whilst they’re also doing dimsum and other delicacies for delivery, we’re particularly wooed by their ‘Enlightenment Coffee’ (THB 85/180ml bottle) which is a mix of local cold brew coffee and local wild honey. There’s also ‘Liberal Coffee’ (THB 85/180 ml bottle) infused with coconut nectar, and ‘F*CK COVID Coffee’ (THB 75/180 ml bottle) cold brew. For Thai tea lovers, you can also get their house Thai spiced milk tea at THB 65/180 ml bottle. Everything is definitely packed with flavour and a whole bunch of puns.
