Poster that caught Mr Bargain Hunter's attention

As we were searching for a cafe at Raffles City basement to have our afternoon caffeine fix, Mr Bargain Hunter was drawn to a poster that says "probably the cheapest specialty coffee around"! Parallel, a take-away only kiosk, serves black coffee (hot or iced long black/americano) at $2.90 each and white coffee (hot or iced latte/flat white) at $3.90 each. Offhand, Bargain Hunter can think of at least 2 places that has cheaper specialty coffees but regardless these are still attractive prices so we decided to give Parallel a try.

Bargain Hunter and I were considering between having the hot or iced version; normally we like our coffees hot but it is easier to drink iced coffee on the move. Finally, preference prevailed. As it turns out, Parallel's hot coffee is only warm (not those scalding hot version) so we happily enjoyed our drink while on-the-go. Those who like their coffees scalding hot or are packing them back may have to make the "hot" request to the barista.

Overall, I am pleased with Parallel as they offer dairy free lattes and I like the coffee flavour in the soy latte. Bargain Hunter had the americano and wasn't too impressed. He reasons that because Parallel's coffee size is small (8oz for hot and 12oz for iced), the coffees are actually not as cheap as they seem. Considering the price per ounce, he feels that he can find similar tasting coffees at cheaper price at other joints.
