UNIQUE BEAUTY OF THE ORIGIN
When we just started our coffee journey, we always found it difficult to understand coffee origins on the menu of coffee shop. And it is also very difficult for baristas to tell every coffee story behind.
So what if we only have one type of coffee bean in a coffee shop? Then we can do more to introduce that coffee origin from different angles, like using different roast profiles and brewing methods to exhibit the bean characters. For coffee beginners, it would be just like learning one chapter at a time from a very interesting and relaxing way.
Our team wish to make For Single an approachable, education-driven and a delicate coffee shop for coffee lovers.
“For Single”, a concept store for appreciating the uniqueness of being single. It’s not about the relationship status, but coffee and whisky.
DISTINCT CHARACTER OF DISTILLERY
Single malt whisky is malt whisky from a single distillery. Although whisky is made from very simple ingredients - malted barley, water and yeast, each distillery has their distinct characters, owing to their own scope & style of whisky and their facility and operation, like the size of stills, type of condensers used, amount of spirit saved (also known as "the cut") etc.
There are uncountable combinations for blended whisky. But we like to back to origin - to appreciate the uniqueness of each distillery.
The whisky experience at For Single would be very welcoming for beginners. We would have one theme per season for beginners to get into the whisky world.

A cask (Scotland) or a barrel (US) is a hollow cylindrical container with a bulging centre. They are traditionally made of wooden staves and bound by wood or metal hoops.
The cask maturation of whisky is one of the most influential processes in defining the taste of whisky. In Scotland the spirit must mature in casks for a minimum of three years before it is legally allowed to be called whisky. While the length of time for cask maturation is important, the type of the cask however is crucial. The wood of the cask adds different complex flavours to the distillery character that is already in the new made spirit....
