Expat. Roasters awarded number one roaster in Indonesia

Expat. Roasters senior coffee roaster Sermy Samma has been awarded the number one coffee roaster in Indonesia at the Indonesia Roasting Championship (IRC) 2019 which took place on 24 – 27 July alongside the FHI (Food and Hotel Indonesia) in Jakarta.
Organised by the Specialty Coffee Association of Indonesia (SCAI) these awards are a platform to highlight the countries best baristas, roasters and coffee professionals.
Shae Macnamara, founder of Expat. Roasters, a speciality coffee producer operating and servicing Indonesia, says winning this title is directly in line with their commitment to training and education, both with their wholesale partners and internal staff.
“To take first place in the roasting category is great recognition for our dedication to training, supporting and mentoring our staff that we have here at Expat.
“I know first hand the hype and pressure that comes with competing but I truly believe it’s a valuable way to push yourself in your role and get you out of the day to day routine.
“It’s an opportunity to increase skills and stay in touch with what’s happening globally in the specialty coffee market,” says Shae.
The competition saw over 30 coffee roasters enter where they had partake in three parts; green bean grading (identify any faults or defects in the beans), sample roasting, production roasting and blending various single origins.
“Part of my reason for opening Expat. Roasters in Indonesia was because I saw an opportunity to not only showcase the specialty coffee grown here but to mentor young baristas and roasters to be some of the best in the world,” said Macnamara.
