Your coffee story - how did you get to where you are now?

Have always enjoyed visiting coffee spots around the country and overseas. One day, I came across the spot DD is in 5 years ago and thought that it is a perfect size to set up an intimate 10 seater espresso bar. With zero hospitality experience and coffee making skills, I translate my experience in dental care into hospitality which surprisingly has many similarities such as, standard of care, the personal touch and being able to defuse complaints. I was lucky to have a dependable team that I could learn my coffee skills from, and from there we simply build relationships over our coffee.

Signature dish: A DD Friday treat! 6oz flatwhite with a cinnamon scroll.  

Most helpful piece of advice ever received: "You can do all things"

A great song: Too many goodies. I could go with my hype song, Kanye's "All of the Lights".

A great book: Not much of a reader haha.

Most embarrassing coffee moment: Spilled some coffee over a customer's brand new pair of shoes. 

The best thing about making coffee: It's a calming, soothing ritual regardless of how busy we may be.

Kindest customer/ experience: We receive Christmas presents and/or cards every year to say thank you.

First place you can travel to when we can travel again and why: Taiwan, to visit my family.
