Their unique selling point to HWC Coffee is their specialty grade beans, said HWC Brunei General Manager Klaus Sim. Compared to many other cafes, HWC Coffee exclusively uses HWC’s signature 91-point specialty coffee beans. Plans are also in the works to introduce 92-point specialty coffee beans in the near future.

“We chose HWC Coffee because we believe in the brand. The specialty coffee scene in Brunei is rapidly growing. We conducted extensive research before our opening and discovered over 60 cafes selling espresso-based coffee, indicating the immense potential,” he said.

He added that HWC Brunei is not limiting its franchise to just one shop. “Our plans include expanding to 5-6 stores within two years,” he added.
