Travelogue - Cantonment Close

Highlander Coffee was started by brothers Phil and Cedric Ho in early 2004. Phil's career then was in engineering and Cedric worked for the IT industry.

What differentiated the duo from other startups was that the business developed into a passion that saw the company grew and carved a nice niche for themselves.

Frustrated with their lack of proper espresso making skills in the beginning, Cedric took off to some serious hands-on training in Australia; the nearest country that demonstrated high coffee standards then. It was with the clear intention of wanting to impart proper coffee making techniques to their own coffee machine customers that drove them to improve on their barista skills.
