It was 1962. Mr W. E. Huber, a Swiss National and commodities trader, had a chance encounter with an expatriate wife who was lamenting about having a hard time finding a decent cup of coffee in Singapore. Inspired by their exchange, he opened a small business roasting 100% pure gourmet coffee, using his experience in commodity trading to acquire samples of green coffee beans. With a small battery-operated coffee roaster, he began his lifelong passion in building the brand, Boncafé, into a household name with a regional presence.
Today Boncafé products and services are actively distributed in 15 different markets around the world, and include our associate offices in South East and East Asia, as well as the United Arab Emirates, and distributors in Asia, Indian Sub-Continent & Indian Ocean, Europe, Africa, and South America. And “Mr Boncafé”, as Mr Huber came to be known, held the position of Founder and Group Chairman of the Boncafé Group of Companies, from 1962 to 2011.
