Started as a passion project, Expat. Roasters led by their award-winning head barista Shae Macnamara, Expat. Roasters are working hard to foster the burgeoning coffee and barista community of Bali. Introducing the culture of making a good brew across the island, one cup at a time.
We work closely with local Indonesian producers and farmers to source the finest quality beans. Working directly with the farmers within 40 kilometers from our roastery, We are hands on with over 50 farming families. This allows us to experiment with processing methods and farming technique to ultimately produce the best coffee available. Over 95% of our beans are sourced within Indonesia with a small amount of specialty coffee hand selected from our global brokers.
"The perfect bean is combination of both art and science - recognising a superior product from the point it’s hand picked to the myriad of scientific processes that determine its final flavour. It’s a delicated balance of hands, head (and heart)".
