on bringing Australia’s best coffee beans to Singapore

Buro 24/7

Accessing the world of fashion and contemporary culture through an Asian lens, Buro 24/7 interviewed co-founders Eugene Chen and Keyis Ng.

They described how their experience with great coffee in Melbourne inspired them to go “online to find a way to purchase coffee from Melbourne, only to find out that some cafes do not ship outside of Australia. For those that did, the shipping fees ended up costing more than the bag of beans itself.”

Asked about the “most interesting person” they have met on the job, they answered, “It would be James Tan, the managing partner of Quest Ventures –’s first investor. James is also one the very first investors to bolster top local start-ups such as, and Burpple. He has been very supportive. Given his wealth of experience, we’ve learnt a lot from him as an investor and mentor.”
