40 Hands – New Cafe Opens at Charming Tiong Bahru


In a coffee-loving country like ours, we welcome an atypical café unlike the commercial franchises we are familiar with. The café was interestingly named 40 Hands because 40 Hands are required in the production of coffee, from plant to cup.

40 Hands’ choice of location was charming, the 20-odd seater tucked away at low-rise Tiong Bahru with a rustic-looking sundry shop and coffeeshop nearby.

The décor was idiosyncratic with a mish mash of wooden crates as chairs, raw concrete floor and graffiti art on the wall in a form of a coffee bean named ‘creepy’. Food was served on plates with retro cockerel motifs, and used condensed milk cans acted as sugar containers.

40 Hands had ambitious and bold visions, among which was to “become a strong advocate for sustainably produced coffee throughout the world.” Therefore, coffee was its primary selling point, more than its food.
