We cleaned out the savings accounts and sold our home; condo; cars and furniture.
We gave away most of our possessions, keeping the dogs and the handsome son, we need him for hard labor. The dogs will be employed with saddle bags for water bottles and what not.
After many delays, we leave for Sumatra Indonesia in July. A paradise and the perfect place to grow some of the most flavorful and aromatic arabica coffee in the world.
Our trip there in November 2009 revealed hidden treasures we did not expect. The people of the Samosir and Lake Toba regions of Sumatra are some of the most humble, welcoming, and industrious people you will encounter anywhere in the world. Sharing their homes and hospitality with strangers, encouraging you to come back again. Well, we are-to make a home and a business that will fulfill our dreams and hopefully help some of the coffee growers in the area to expand theirs.
Lisa and Leo’s Organic Coffee will of course be a certified organic farm, but we also plan our start up company as a certified green company as well.
Solar power!! and of course WATER BUFFALOS! yes that’s right, our choice for heavy equipment will have a name and a personality.
We welcome comments and info on solar energy, green companies for networking, organic farming, and the country of Indonesia.
Welcome to our story.
