Bali, October 1st, 2022 -
Expat. Roasters, one of Indonesia's fastest growing coffee companies, will celebrate six years of roasting on Saturday 1 October, which also marks International Coffee Day globally.
“I can't believe we have been operating in Indonesia for [only] six years, time sure does fly when you are having fun,” said Shae Macnamara, founder, Expat. Roasters.
“The last six years have been incredible and challenging and everything in between. From when we first started in 2016, nothing prepared us for the impact of covid, not even the earthquakes and volcanoes in the years before,” said Shae.
“I can confidently say we have been seeing an increase in coffee sales and excitement in Bali over the past 12 months, the development and investment has not stopped and positive impact is now being seen across the island and regional areas.
“I love visiting our wholesale partners and seeing their businesses continue to grow and thrive again with the increased tourism here in Bali and travel restrictions eased.
Expat. Roasters wholesale across Bali and greater Indonesia and offer intensive training, service and support to over 300 outlets currently. They also plan to grow their retail arm of the business through franchising across Indonesia and other parts of the world.
In conjunction with the six years of roasting celebration, Expat. Roasters has sourced a unique coffee from North Sumatra in collaboration with one of the biggest coffee producers, Lisa & Leo’s Organic Farm. Around 80 percent of the coffee farm workers in North Sumatra are women. Despite playing a key role in producing some of the greatest Indonesian coffees, they are often overlooked. Expat. Roasters will have this limited edition coffee available from 1 October in hope to bring awareness and empowerment to all females in the coffee industry.
This is a tribute to all the hard-working and dedicated women in the coffee industry.
