The RIGHT GRINDER can give you greater enjoyment on your cup of coffee!

THE PROBLEM
  • There are just too many CONFUSING MODELS AND TYPES available in the marketplace! Which is most suitable for my budget and expectations?
  • Many espresso grinders are very fanciful and highly priced. Can they really help me to serve good coffee CONSISTENTLY?
  • Coffee machine distributor we talked to don’t seemed able to provide the much needed AFTER-SALES TECHNICAL SUPPORT should something go wrong.
  • Besides buying the grinder, can the supplier provide EFFECTIVE GRIND ADVISE for us to get the most of the equipment?
THE FACTS & SOLUTIONS
  • Depending on your expectations, there are different models and types that will suit different needs. There IS definitely ONE that will will MATCH your needs and budget.
  • Coffee grinder only play ONE PART in achieving a good cup. Great coffee depends on the coffee origin, roasting, freshness, grind, brewing technique etc…not forgetting your preferences.
  • RESPONSIVE AFTER-SALES TECHNICAL SUPPORT is absolutely crucial to the unexpected breakdown of coffee grinders. You would need a vendor that has the expertise, hardware and manpower to support you when you in dire need.
  • Many suppliers sell coffee machines but not only a handful can provide EFFECTIVE GRIND ADVISE. Typically, NOT MANY have a proper coffee training curriculum, don’t roast and supply coffee, don’t have an in-house technical support team.
  • With no obligation, Highlander Coffee can help you find the IDEAL COFFEE GRINDER for your home, office or Food and Beverage establishment.

Mr Michael Card (American Christian singer-songwriter, musician, author, and radio host from Franklin, Tennessee http://www.michaelcard.com/ and Facebook Album)

“if personal attention to the production line is key to the artisanal push, then unpretentious down-to-earth brothers Phil and Cedric Ho of Highlander Coffee are often cited as the early adopters of more holistic control over their cup – bringing in green beans, roasting on-site (even on demand), grinding on demand, brewing to perfection. They serve up the best cup of flat white I’ve had in Singapore so far.

Great consistent coffee year after year. Well priced drinks, can get your supply of beans too as they are a roaster too. Only grouse is they close too early, good for the friendly staff but little bit inconvenient for me 😅

Phil, Many thanks to Cedric for taking such good care of my DomoBar. It gave me great peace of mind that it was handled by someone who understands how to treat the machine.

What Others Say…

Do we have to use your coffee beans if we purchase a grinder from Highlander Coffee?

YES, preferably so. But you are not obliged to.

However, please note that the machine’s 1 year warranty will only be valid carry-in or onsite in Singapore (depending on the models and terms of purchase) on condition it is not due to mishandling or the use of coffee beans that caused the damage to the grinder burrs.

Do you a technical support team and how fast is the response?

Through the years we have built up a robust TECHNICAL CAPABILITY to support the distribution of espresso machines serving homes, offices and commercial establishments. Customers enjoy PEACE-OF-MIND through our sound troubleshooting know how on services, repair and spare parts support. Typically our response time is within the next few hours onsite or within latest the same working day. Often, problems are easily solved instantly over the phone or by electronic correspondences.

Do you roast your own coffee beans and does Highlander Coffee possesses the required food safety certifications?

We pioneered INSTORE roasting in Aug 2006 with a 3kg Diedrich from USA for our own use at our espresso bar and retail beans. This is a Singapore NEA approved practice. As we naturally progress to the wholesale business, we outsourced our roasting to an AVA approved 3rd party roaster. In Singapore, it is illegal to roast beans instore (NEA certification) and supply wholesale to other food and beverage establishments. See http://www.ava.gov.sg/explore-by-sections/food/food-manufacturing-storage-innovation/overview-of-food-establishments-in-singapore

As our wholesale business grew, we eventually become a AVA certified wholesale roaster and supplier. End 2012, we finally WHOLLY OWN a roasting plant; producing coffee almost daily for both retail and wholesale with AVA (2012) and Halal (2015) certification. Our roasting facility is located at Food Exchange, 28 km away from our espresso bar (NEA certified since 2006)!

How often are your beans roasted?

At our Food Xchange roasting plant, we roast almost daily or at least four times a week! If you don’t plan well, you are likely to boast about roasting every day! Do not forget you still need to take care of machine maintenance and packing of beans!

Where are the beans sourced from?

Our beans are sourced from all over the world namely South America, Central America in Africa and Indonesia.

Why are these beans special? Flavor?

They are special because each has its own characteristics to add complexity to the flavours our customers desire. Typically, they are citrusy, sweet, nutty, herbal, earthy, spicy and full bodied.

Favorite roast? How do you get this flavor?

Medium to medium dark roast or city to full city as some will call it. We find that within this degree of roasts, there is a good balance of sweetness, bitterness, body and acidity. Ultimately this is what our customers approve of and keep coming back for more.

Why is Highlander Coffee unique?

We believe making good consistent coffee can be easily available or taught to everyone to greatly improve the quality of our beverage experience.

To be available to everyone it must be simple to master for an individual, organisation or a commercial establishment. Coffee should easily be learned and not intimidating or overcomplicated.

Since 2004, Highlander Coffee is committed to making it simple for anyone to experience good consistent coffee by sharing, serving, and support of our in-house roasted coffees, espresso coffee machines and coffee training workshops.

For more than a DECADE, our VALUES have kept us focused to achieve steady and consistent GROWTH. SIMPLY put, we want our customers to continue recognizing us as ENDURING, DEPENDABLE and CREDIBLE.

We have established a broad customer base that either enjoys coffee at our espresso bar or who purchases beans to savour at home. Commercial establishments and offices trust our roasts to serve their coffee customers and employees.

Where and how can I start buying your coffee beans?

You may PURCHASE ONLINE, pick up coffee beans at our retail cafe and shop 49 Kampong Bahru Road OR contact us for a no obligation discussion regarding your PERSONAL, OFFICE OR CAFE needs.
