For many of us, 2021 has meant more working from home and less going out on weekends to stay safe during the pandemic. This has often resulted in fewer trips to our favourite local coffee shops in town or near our workplaces.
Thankfully for coffee lovers, more roasteries are offering subscription services that send us freshly roasted coffee beans direct to our homes. Arriving like clockwork, these deliveries enable us to continue indulging in artisanal coffees and fill our homes with the sweet aroma of delicious brews.
Here’s our latest compilation of coffee subscriptions available in Singapore and Malaysia. Check out our previous lists in 2019 and 2020 for more providers to choose from. Happy brewing, and don’t forget to explore our range of De’Longhi coffee machines to do justice to the high-quality beans coming your way with barista-quality cups of coffee.
Parchmen & Co, Singapore
If you’ve been missing travelling lately, you can still explore exotic parts of the world by sipping on Parchmen & Co’s in-house roasted specialty coffees that are sourced from all over.
Spanning Africa to Central America, plus some lesser-known coffee estates in Asia, Parchmen & Co’s long list of coffees invites you to explore the wonderful varieties available. We particularly love how they highlight some of Southeast Asia’s unsung specialty coffees.

Kurasu, Singapore & Malaysia
Japanese coffee ware brand Kurasu was started by Yozo Otsuki, an ex-banker who moved to Australia in 2013. Initially a homeware store providing Japanese products to Australians, he pivoted his business towards coffeeware when he noticed growing interest in Japanese coffee culture and equipment.
By focusing on educating coffee lovers about the Japanese way of home brew and the craft, care, and mentality of their coffee culture, Kurasu has grown into a global business supplying products to 25 countries.
Their flagship store is rated #1 coffee house on Tripadvisor for Kyoto, Japan, and they opened an outlet in Singapore in 2017. They also partnered with Good Coffee to ship coffee roasted by artisan Japanese roasters.
Available in whole beans only and in various weight packs, Kurasu offers free shipping to Singapore and Malaysia. Choose between partner roasters or their in-house Kurasu roasters who will carefully select their favourite beans each month.

Special Mention: Mister Coffee, Malaysia & Singapore
Although Mister Coffee hasn’t started offering coffee subscriptions, we wanted to mention this third generation family business that is now one of the largest family-owned coffee companies in Malaysia.
Mister Coffee owes their success to their ability to keep up with the latest F&B trends and developments, and to their commitment to roasting their coffee beans to the highest quality standards.
A large dose of good old fashioned sincerity and integrity helps too! They select and import exceptional specialty coffee beans from different regions around the world, including Indonesia, Costa Rica, Rwanda and El Salvador.
