I have been sitting here for a while now, trying to wrack my brains, thinking of an interesting way in which to start our new blog, and so far, my best idea is to introduce ourselves and go from there….so here goes.
My name is Kar Yee and I am one of the co-founders of Karst Organics, together with my partner and fellow co-founder Stewart.
Based in Dili, East Timor we are looking to work directly with the local coffee farmers of East Timor, exporting their wonderful single origin, organically grown Arabica coffee beans to all corners of the world (eventually), however for now, we are working on firstly exporting to the UK.
Keep up to date with our blog to follow along with our adventures through East Timor tracking down the best coffee the country has to offer, and meet the people with whom we are looking to build strong relationships with in order to offer them support in creating a solid, self-sufficient and consistent business.
We are looking forward to the exciting adventure ahead and hope that you enjoy reading all about it.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are a few pictures of East Timor to give you an insight into what you can expect of the worlds second youngest country.
