Getting to know Terrence Tan - Founder of Tad Coffee.
How did the journey of Tad Coffee start?
Tad Coffee Company was established in 2018, by a group of friends, led by Terence Tan.
The aim for TAD is to provide better quality coffee, barista training and education to our retailers.
Can you share more about Tad Coffee's approach to sourcing and roasting coffee?
We are always on a constant lookout for coffee that has quality and good potential, keeping in touch with our traders and finding value in the green coffee which will provide a consistent cup quality to our wholesale and consumer base.
What was the inspiration for Tad Coffee to decide to put coffees into the convenient capsule format?
We want good coffee to be approachable and easy for most people. Having our coffee made into Nespresso-compatible pods allow us to reach out to more consumers and provide an alternative taste approach to coffee.
Coffee is fuel to get us moving throughout the day, especially in the morning. What is your daily morning ritual like?
As a local boy, I got to start my day with a Kopi-O and that sets the base for the day. On days that I need a quick fix before getting out of the house, I'll have a couple of shots of our Aviary pods.
What are you most excited about right now and for the future of Tad Coffee as a business?
I'm excited about the different green coffee that we can purchase and creating different taste experiences for our customers, whether it be blends or single-origin coffees.
I see TAD to be growing through different prongs of the coffee business - creating different experiences through coffee, via a retail and learning experience.
