Cafe expansion + new office space

It’s here!

The cafe has finally burst its belt, and its taken over the
upstairs of St. 1.5. Fully equipped with comfy couches and rustic
tables, the old office has had a fast facelift, and can now
accommodate lazy travelers looking to kick back, remote workers hoping
for an energizing desk space, and everything in between.

Thus the office has picked up and relocated a mere 10m south on St.
1.5 in a similarly charming yellow restored colonial building.* With
plenty of space for the Soksabikes, and our growing office crew, the
place already has a lively cowork feel to it. And rightly so! We want
to encourage remote workers coming from near and far to check it out.

*We absentmindedly left out that it was our dear friend and former Battambang resident, Alison, that made this move possible! Alison was our neighbor on St. 1.5 until she moved to Phnom Penh for work. She gave us the heads up about her fantastic property, and we jumped on the opportunity to rent. Thank you, Alison! We sure miss you and best of luck in Phnom Penh!

Notes from Kinyei vols James + Joel

Expert Barista and IT vols – James and Joel spent a few weeks with our team in early October. Hop over to their blog to hear about their time, and follow the rest of their Southeast Asian adventure.

Here’s a glimpse…

“We are still yet to convince all of Kinyei’s staff that we are not twins. It really doesn’t help that our names both start with ‘J’. Most of the time James was shortened to just ‘Jam’

Our time at Kinyei has been fantastic and it has allowed us to meet so many amazing local people. I’m sure it won’t be long before we return to Battambang in search for some local Kinyei hospitality.”
