Project #9425 - Business Law Homework

Roger placed an order for a shipment of “Kopi Kuching” brand of high grade coffee with

Best Indonesian Coffee Pte Ltd. (“BIC”). BIC represents a large coffee exporter based in

Indonesia which carries the “Kopi Kuching” brand.

Roger also entered into a contract with a renovation contractor, Harry, to renovate his

kitchen and construct a special storage room in his flat to keep his stock of high grade

coffee. The kitchen was renovated. However, Harry incurred extra costs of $2,000.00

during the initial stage of construction and claimed that the extra costs were necessary

to ensure that the special storage room conformed to the specifications laid down by the

building authorities. Roger refused to pay the extra $2,000 and wanted Harry to

continue constructing the special storage room. On the basis of Roger’s refusal to pay

the extra costs, Harry told Roger that he does not intend to continue with the

construction of the special storage room.

Due to miscommunication between BIC and the exporter in Indonesia, BIC was late in

shipping the coffee to Singapore.

During the delay, there was a sudden surplus of high grade coffee in the Singapore

market. Another brand of high grade coffee, “Civet Cat Coffee”, from Malaysia was

available to retailers in Singapore. The price of high grade coffee in Singapore fell.

By the time the shipment of “Kopi Kuching” coffee reached Singapore, Roger made

$15,000.00 less profit than he would have made if the coffee had been delivered on

time.

A) Advise whether Harry is entitled to claim payment from Roger.

B) Advise whether Roger can succeed in claiming damages for the $15,000.00 loss

of profit.
