When my editor, BH, sent me this article’s headline, I felt like he was asking me to clutch at straws.

I mean, cafe articles are a dime in a dozen, shaved ice has become slightly passé and I didn’t really know what to make of “Shape of a Bear.”

Granted, straws are aplenty in cafes, but that has nothing to do with my predicament.

So I trudge on.

A pregnant woman was so annoyed at a noisy baby that she threw a pot of burning mala at the baby. At the worst part of this? She wasn’t charged. Click on the image below to read about this shocking incident:

Shape of Bear?

Well, read on.

Baristart Coffee

Hailing from Hokkaido, Japan, Baristart’s first cafe “Baristart Coffee Stand” was opened in Odori in 2015.

Born and raised in Hokkaido, the owners of Baristart place utmost emphasis on the milk used in their coffee as “Hokkaido’s dairy and livestock industry is the strongest in Japan ” and is responsible for over “50% of the milk in Japan” according to their website.


Here’s two moooooo-tiful pictures of their cafe at Tras Street, Tanjong Pagar.

Do you have someone in your office who doesn’t dare to make a call? If so, this video is for you:

Coffee – Of Milk and Beans

In particular, Baristart Coffee prides itself on the use of milk from various types of cow such as Holstein, Guernsey etc and especially Jersey.

According to their website:

Which means: Baristart Coffee = Jersey Cows = Rare (only 800 in Hokkaido)= Rich & Butterfat & Protein = Awesome Milk

The use of all these milks and especially Jersey cow milk enables Baristart Coffee to be super creamy and tasty.

That and also their Arabica coffee blend which has strong acidity with a tinge of floral aroma, alongside their Robusta coffee blend which is on the darker, more full-bodied spectra.

Don’t trust my words though, just take a look at these pictures.

Desserts, Mains and Bear-shaped Shaved Ice

But drinking coffee alone isn’t going to satiate your ravenous hunger.

How about some mains and desserts to go along with?

Last but surely not the least, there’s the Shiro Kuma Hokkaido, which is essentially shaved ice that’s shaped like a bear and served with a side of milk.

I’m not a fan of honey-laced quips like “cute-die-me,” but my writerly instinct tells me this exactly the moment to use it, so:

cute die me, faints**

Not bad eh?
