As a coffee enthusiast, Cindy used to do cafe hopping every week. With the passion about coffee, she started learning how to make coffee and worked as a barista. By having prior experience in the food and beverage industry for 2 years, Cindy decided to achieve her dream – own a cafe.

BeĀngels Specialty Coffee was established on 1st April 2016. BeĀngels, be caffeinated. Looking at the name itself, you could find out the word “bean” which represents coffee bean, and the word “angels” represent soul. Putting these two words together, BeĀngels means the soul of the coffee beans.

The Interior

BeĀngels Specialty Coffee is tucked at the ground floor of Island Plaza. The interior is mainly black with touches of green. Moreover, the black wall and ceiling make the cafe look more vibrant. Besides, the touch of green is very relaxing and comforting. It is an excellent choice for establishments that serve healthy and natural food, for example salad, which is available in their menu.
