1 Dec 2014 (Mon) Went over for coffee time at Geek Cafe and spoke to Mr Alex Tan, one of the two founders.
Mr Alex has an engineer background with 13 years of IT retail experience, he has always wanted to open a tech cafe with community involvement like ten years ago but did not dare to take the risk until few years ago he met his co-founder Jermaine Jeremiah and started preparation.
A decade of dream incubation. Clap Clap. I wonder how many of us can incubate and persevere a dream for ten years.
Alex exuberated passion while sharing more on his business.
(a) repair training classes- mainly for Apple products: (how to revive water damaged iphone) and (how to open the iphone cover and change the battery, battery included training from $39 onwards.)
(b) coffee training classes – certified by SCAE: (how to appreciate coffee), (coffee cupping) and (barista)
(c) blue box audio
Designed by Alex’s wife who is a professional graphic designer, makes me wonder is that an older version of Alex who never sleeps? Alex really looks young for his age.
Me too for my age.

Alex shared that Geek’s Cafe grounded coffee’s residue after sunning can be used as fertiliser, there is a real happy plant at the cafe being fertilised by that. I almost thought it is a decoration fake plant. If you want the grounded coffee residue, do ask the staff.
