Our Coffee Story

Our coffee journey

Hello! We are Benson and Ruby, founders of Bean Rock Coffee. We’ve liked coffee since we were young, and we grew up drinking instant and Kopitiam coffee. Back then, we didn’t understand why the quality of coffee matters. Or even, we found pour over coffee too sour and lacking in body, or simply put, not ‘gao’ (thick) enough.

 

However, later on in life, we learn that the quality of coffee beans, roasting and brewing recipe affects not only the taste and whole coffee experience, but also our health. This marked the beginning of our coffee journey with home-brewing specialty coffee. And of course, with some occasional indulgence in our Nanyang Kopi (because we have loved, and we will always love our traditional Nanyang Kopi)!

When that first sip of coffee touches your soul…

Coffee that touch our soul

Drinking coffee at cafés can be expensive. To save money while drinking healthy and delicious coffee, we started home brewing from a French Press, with some coffee bought from supermarkets and online stores. However, we found the taste of most coffee lacking in flavours and totally unsatisfying. What’s worse was the fanciful packaging yet unwrapped filter papers, accompanied with unnecessary information cards!

 

It was an awful experience because throwing away the bad-tasting coffee and unhygienic filter papers made us felt sinful. Also, we did not know what to do with the extravagant attachments.

 

Drinking delicious coffee should be simple, yet enjoyable and environment-friendly, we thought.

 

Determined to find the best coffee and recipe that touch our soul, we set off on a steep but rewarding coffee journey. In our humble kitchen, we experimented with roasting and brewing, as well as cupping, analysing and refining our bean selections.

 

There is no better joy in life than the joy of sharing. We want to make drinking delicious and healthy coffee fresh, sustainable, and enjoyable for our family, friends and coffee lovers. Thus, leveraging on our passion for coffee and experiences in IT, we gave life to this Ecommerce coffee shop.

About This Coffee

Farmers of the Guatemala coffee were a group of vegetables growers, planting garlic, onion, potatoes and tomatoes, before they started growing coffee.

Just like the name of this coffee blend – Zen.

 

Versatile for anything espresso-based, Zen coffee blend is curated with balanced acidity and body in mind, to give a harmonious cup. Nothing fanciful, nothing superfluous. In other words, it’s a classic and modest coffee that helps you keep calm, and carry on.
