TAG Espresso is a newly launched Singapore coffee brand, inspired by the hashtag and emoticons we see daily on social media.
Each box of TAG Espresso comes packed with 12 capsules in cheery packaging to perk up your day. There are four box options available:
- CORAL PINK ($49.95), limited edition, medium roast, 12 x Sherry Berry (coffee beans fermented in Sherry Cask)
- FANTASY BLUE ($33.25), fruity, medium roast, 6 x Coconut, 6 x Grapefruit
- TAG BLUE ($29.95), everyday coffee, mid to dark roast, 6 x Apricot Chestnut, 6 x Grapefruit
- MIDNIGHT BLUE ($28.55), everyday coffee, dark roast, 12 x Nutty Chocolate
The best thing is that you do not need a coffee machine to prepare your daily dose of caffeine with TAG. Simply tear the lid of the capsule open and pour it into a glass of water. The content dissolves in cold water or milk as well, perfect for sunny Singapore whereby a cold drink is usually much preferred.
For the more adventurous, you can have your coffee sparkling as well by dissolving it in soda water. This makes it fun for concocting innovative coffee mocktails or alcohol-infused coffee cocktails, depending on your fancy.
For the health conscious, there is no added sugar preservatives in each of the capsule content.
We tried the Grapefruit, Coconut and Nutty Chocolate capsules and found the former two to be particularly interesting. You can savour the fruity notes when enjoying your coffee and they pair well with cold, still or sparkling water to beat the heat as well as perk you up. For the latter, the dark roast with chocolaty note is great to start the morning with and goes better with warm water.
