Marina Bay Sands is joining hands with award-winning pop superstar JJ Lin to bring his much-raved artisanal coffee concept – Miracle Coffee Singapore – home. From Shanghai to Taipei, the artisanal coffee concept has been winning fans with its hand-dripped aromatic brews made from single origin coffee beans sourced from around the world. In Singapore, the flagship café will launch at the lobby of the iconic ArtScience Museum in 2023, while a sneak preview will be made available through a 90-day pop-up at the Museum’s outdoor Rain Oculus from 30 September 2022.
Set against the picturesque lily pond and glistening Marina Bay waters, the limited-time kiosk will serve the concept’s signature range of famous pour-overs and cold brews, as well as Americanos, cappuccinos, a variety of specialty lattes and a Singapore-exclusive beverage – Kaya Cloud. Created exclusively for Miracle Coffee Singapore, Kaya Cloud is an Americano-style coffee featuring fragrant fruity notes, brewed using single-origin espresso (SOE) beans. It is a delightful cup of coffee topped with a velvety fresh cream cap flavoured with kaya – Singapore’s signature coconut jam, complete with shaved gula melaka for an elevated aromatic experience.
A nod to his music belief “If Miracles Had A Sound”, Miracle Coffee encourages all to slow down their pace of life to anticipate everyday miracles.
“I am thrilled to team up with Marina Bay Sands to bring Miracle Coffee to my home, Singapore. Since this is our first time setting up a pop-up for Miracle Coffee, we wanted a scenic location that can stage the intimate scene of coffee lovers revelling in a smooth cup of coffee while soaking in views of my beautiful city. There is no other location that is more suitable than the iconic ArtScience Museum, a popular destination for museum-goers, city wanderers as well as cycling enthusiasts and joggers around Marina Bay,” said JJ Lin.
A master of the soulful, piercing ballad, JJ Lin is known equally well for his captivating songwriting as well as his show-stopping vocals. Since his debut in 2003, the multi-award-winning artist has grown his repertoire of golden ballads, revealing more intimate sides to himself over the years. His first performance at Marina Bay Sands was in 2010 when he was one of the few artists to sing at the integrated resort’s grand opening. The star also gave an unprecedented performance on the roof of ArtScience Museum in 2021 for the launch ofDisney+ and held his first sell-out concert “After The Rain” after a two-year break at the Sands Theatre later in the same year.
Mr. Paul Town, Marina Bay Sands’ Chief Operating Officer, said, “Marina Bay Sands is proud to partner with JJ Lin, one of the most prolific entertainment icons of our time, to unveil the homecoming of Miracle Coffee. Our affinity with JJ dates way back to when we first opened 12 years ago, and just last year when he performed twice on our property. Being able to now house this passion project close to his heart under our roof is incredibly special to us. The addition of Miracle Coffee will not only add another jewel to our dining repertoire, it will also enliven the scenic Marina Bay to offer visitors an added reason to uncover the beauty of our city.”
