Coffee was first brought into Peru in the middle of the 18th century, and all the coffee grown were consumed locally initially. Even though Peruvian coffee was only first exported towards the end of the 19th century, its climate is very suitable for large-scale coffee production and is now one of the largest coffee producers of the world.

In Peru, there is a strong culture of organic production among farmers as they have limited/no access to chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and they hand pick and process each coffee bean. 

Some of the coffee growing regions in Peru includes Cajamarca, Junin, Cusco, and San Martin. Our #dYScover collection this month features coffee from the Cajamarca region, located in the northern end of the country. This region has an equatorial climate and rich soils suitable for coffee production, and most producers here are smallholders. They benefit from producer's organizations such as CENFROCAFE, which provides technical help, training, loans, and other forms of support to the farmers.

We taste notes of nutmeg, juicy redcurrants, and a slight grapefruit-like bitterness, in a smooth medium body with a pleasant acidity to finish. 

As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Peru, do make sure you give this a try soon!

There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another. 

#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!

Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.

A taste of heritage

and fresh perspectives

Yong Seng Coffee specialises in Singapore's favourite - traditional Nanyang coffee, a.k.a. kopi (meaning coffee in Malay). Being the lifeblood of many Singaporeans, we have served our many blends of traditional kopi for over 40 years, in addition to a selection of dry-roasted coffee of various origins.

Today, embodying heritage with every bag, we strive to keep our family's legacy and Singapore's kopi culture alive, while continuously working to expand and refine our offerings to cater to your ever-evolving preferences.

Testimonials

Tried the Arabica Blend and it changed my perspective of white coffee. Ditch your 3-in-1 and brew your own coffee with Yong Seng this CB period.

I ordered all the 6 choices (of Drip Bag Coffee) to try. Arrived yesterday and tried the Signature Blend #1 this morning. Clear indication of roasted & packing dates on each packet. Fresh and full of aroma, highly recommended. Tks!
