Welcome to the ESPRESSOCUPS website!

Time really flies - ESPRESSOCUPS started trading in March 2013 which means we are now already about 9 years in operation! It has been a time filled with plenty of new experiences but also a full success overall - and I would like to thank everybody for their support and encouragement, with many enthusiastically welcoming a shop of this kind in Singapore! But above all I have to thank my wife for (still) bearing with me and for fully supporting the idea. Thanks also go to many friends and relatives who have helped at various stages.

ESPRESSOCUPS was the first seller of quality barista-grade cups in Singapore, serving cafes and restaurants as well as home baristas. Over the years, the market has become wider and more new products are now available. Whilst the Covid pandemic has seen many cafes falling victims to the hardship, we are now seeing increasing numbers of new openings - both start-ups and existing cafes adding new outlets - very encouraging signs! At the same time, the number of home baristas (after emerging several years ago) is on a steady increase - especially since the lockdown periods - and in line with more people becoming aware of good coffee and wanting to prepare it on their own machine at home. We also frequently see "upgraders" who replace their machines with more sophisticated ones, as their demands for quality rise.

Don't forget the cups - essential to a good cuppa!

Having bought a good machine and a good grinder, it is also important to operate with good quality cups. Be it for heat retention properties or durability, professional cups with the typical characteristics are the obvious choice. At ESPRESSOCUPS you will find a wide range of quality hard porcelain cups: high-fired, and some with thick walls, to satisfy the demanding coffee addict. ESPRESSOCUPS' main focus is now on brands like Ancàp, Club House and IPA - with a few white Nuova Point left (we have discontinued this brand due to consistency issues)

We also carry a large number of decorated cup collections, most of which are available both in espresso and cappuccino (tea) format: they are of the same barista quality, but each with attractive series of motifs.  These are limited editions and make ideal gifts, but can of course also be for own enjoyment...!

Barista accessories - for espresso

We have also substantially expanded our range of barista accessories, i.e. milk pitchers, tampers, tamping mats and many more items. We are the official Singapore distributor for the quality products of Pesado 58.5 and carry almost the whole range of the popular Motta products. ILSA, Barista Hustle, Cafelat, DVG, Rhinowares, Joe Frex and Duralex are just a few of the other brands we carry.

At the same time we regret to inform that we have discontinued international shipping - for various reasons. 

The Shop

Due to the ongoing pandemic and safe-distancing rules, visits to the shop are still by appointment and limited to 2 persons at a time.

Please continue to give me any kind of feedback on ESPRESSOCUPS’ product selection and service, as it will help me to better understand your preferences or issues (if any). As they say, if you experience a problem tell us, but if you're happy tell your friends! 

I wish everyone a happy and successful 2022 - despite the adverse current (Covid) circumstances - and

Espresso Yourself!

Sincerely, Martin  (February 2022)
