It has been over a decade since Forty Hands, one of the more popular cafes in Tiong Bahru, opened. And now it’s time for them to say goodbye.
On 6 September, Forty Hands published a post on their Facebook page announcing that they will be officially closing on 12 September 2022.
You will be missed.
Forty Hands serves Aussie-Asian inspired brunch and currently has two outlets in Singapore.
Their first outlet, opened in October 2010, is located at Tiong Bahru along Yong Siak Street.
Their second outlet, opened in May 2018, is located at East Coast Road.
Forty Hands is not just a cafe. They also raise funds for the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) and are also working with them for a Pay-It-Foward programme.
Customers can choose to buy a coffee for an SPD friend for them to enjoy at just $3.
To date, Forty Hands has raised over $10,000 for SPD and it’s still ongoing.
No reason was given for the cafe’s sudden closure but it’s not going to be a complete farewell.
According to the post, many familiar faces will be working at their sister brand, Common Man Coffee Roasters.
It turns out Forty Hands coffee beans have always been from Common Man Coffee Roasters so you can rest assured that their signature flavours will still be around.
Common Man Coffee Roasters only roasts, sell, and serve specialty grade Arabica coffee and they have a total of four outlets in Singapore and Malaysia.
Forty Hands might be coming back in the future though as their last line of goodbye hints a new path coming up for them.
“Thank you once again for all the love, support, and moments of joy. It’s been an absolute honour serving our community these past 12 years, and if the future is made of the same stuff as the present, you may just find our next big brew shining in the distance.”
But until then, we can only savor and enjoy the last few days of Forty Hands so hurry down before they go.
