Blocs Inc – Build You Own Coffee At Paya Lebar Square

Previously known as Kaldi’s Berry at China Square, they had just changed their name and location to Blocs Inc. at Paya Lebar Sqaure.

The idea behind this café was relatively simple. Blocs, building blocks, build your own coffee. Each building block contains a microchip that will be able to generate your desired coffee at the counter. Sounds similar to Beesket DIY fruit juice, in this case, a cup of coffee.

Coffee was decent, smooth with the Blocs Blend and at a price of $4.20, it’s cheaper than other cafes out there.

Apart from ‘building’ your own coffee, toast can also be ‘built’ here
Step 1. Toast Base ($2.90) – Cinnamon or butter toast
Step 2. Choose your fillings ($2) – Apple, banana or ice cream
Step 3. Sauce ($1.50) – Chocolate, Strawberry, Caramel
Step 4. Icecream ($3 single/ $5 double) – Salted Caramel, Marshmellow, Cheesecake,Earl Grey
Step 5. Combo ($3 for a cup of coffee)

Unlike other shibuya toasts, there’s only the external crust available as the interior was filled with bananas (in my case).

It’s fun and interesting to build your own food at times, and we would probably be back to try different combination of coffee.
