Have you heard of a home-based coffee and tea drink supplier? El Kapitan is a "home-based Starbucks" that supplies espresso machines and really good instant drinks with unique blends.
Most foodies raved about his instant Teh Tarik Blend, which is a concoction of powders done in Singapore out of 3 Teh Tarik blends. It is way better than the Lipton Milk Tea available in the market today.
Next to the teh, foodies also approved of the Banana Nut Coffee. It is a combination of Baristo's 3in1 Coffee with Big Train's Banana Nut Cream syrup.
I'm addicted to the Teh Tarik -- I didn't know instant tea could taste this good.

El Kapitan Food Enterprises Story by Raymond So
When I was still in college (I went to La Salle, and there was a Starbucks in Torre Lorenzo), I fell in love with coffee. While I credit chain coffee shops for this passion for coffee, I wanted to put up my own coffee shop. Eventually, I went to various local food expos to check out espresso and coffee-brewing equipment, but nothing ever materialized. A year later, as I was attending a trade expo in Fujian, I came across a company selling coffee vending machines in China with a sole Southeast Asian distributor in Singapore. A few months after this, I flew to Singapore. After I got dealership of these vending machines, I expanded the line to include professional and domestic espresso machines from Italy, syrups and frappuccino mixes from the US, and espresso smallwares also from the US! In effect, my story is that from originally planning to own a coffee shop, I ended up being a coffee supplies distributor.
I love espresso and espresso preparation. It would be best if I can let fellow foodies taste the premium coffee products that I am distributing.
