RICMAS International Pte. Ltd.

30 YEARS RICMAS HISTORY

With 30 years of experience in coffee machine and coffee business in South East Asia and a selection of probably the best manufacturers in this trade on our side, we have the skill and ability to serve anybody, immaterial of size and nature of coffee and coffee equipment they require. At RICMAS we are offering you THE coffee solution - for a household just as well as for an office or a restaurant. For true coffee lovers and coffee connoisseurs, perfect coffee is not just a beverage, it is a lifestyle. Coffee brewing equipment are not just a technically perfected device, our machines are a beauty for your senses as well. We strongly believe in "locally" workable solutions, independent of the skill of a Barista. We have good reason to believe in fully automatic machines. Bean to Cup machines produce that perfect cup always and at the push of a button without any skill of the operator.
