Lydia Goh

Be open to tastes, and never be afraid to make mistakes.

Lydia is an SCA authorised trainer who enjoys meeting people and creating relationships over a cup of coffee.

When Lydia was just about 8 or 9 years old, her grandmother made her a small cup of local kopi, sweetened with condensed milk - thick and yummy! To this day, she still has vivid memories of her grandmother making kopi with a small sock filter and serving it in the quintessential, old-school kopi cups. To her. a good and memorable cup is about the experience, often shared over conversations with friends and family, although these days she drinks more chinese tea!

Education has always been Lydia’s calling - she went from lecturing in hospitality to lecturing in coffee!


Favourite drink: Espresso with a dash of cold milk

Fun fact: Lydia doesn’t actually drink local kopi now, unfortunately due to acid reflux :(
