ULTIMATE TASTE TEST 2.0 RATING: 3.7 out of 5.0


The Green Tea Frappuccino was most refreshing…”

Raymond So’s passion for coffee — specifically espresso and espresso preparation, led him to be one of the most promising Coffee supplies distributors in Manila. I love their Baristo Coffee Beans, which come in Premio Blend (100% Arabica), Netto Blend (Cafe Blend), and Ricco Blend (80% Arab., 20% Rob.). A lot of people loved the hot and even the cold frappuccino mix, particularly the familiar taste of Green Tea Frappuccino.

Joining the taste test was one way for Raymond to share his passion with others, and it’s the closest thing to having his own coffee shop.

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.
