A new coffee shop this way comes, when % Arabica Coffee opens its first space in Singapore in about four months. The popular Japanese brand from Kyoto recently announced on its social media channels its plans to take over 56 Arab Street in about four months, sparking off a wave of excitement among java addicts.

Established in Kyoto in 2014, % Arabica Coffee currently has 24 outlets in nine countries, including Hong Kong, China, and the Philippines — with plans to take over the caffeine scene in Morocco, France, Qatar, and Indonesia soon. Set up by owner Kenneth Shoji, who owns a coffee farm in Hawaii, and Junichi Yamaguchi, a world champion in latte art, it uses beans sourced from Ethiopia, Brazil, Panama, and Guatemala.

Knowing the coffee chain’s penchant for sleek minimalism, we’re curious to see how it’ll transform the ordinary-looking building on Arab Street into its home. Anyhow, check back in four months for a cuppa.
