THE 3 PILLARS OF OUR EXISTENCE
The Jewel of Asian Coffee™ says it all. Winning the national and international award demonstrates our quality and flavor, but don’t just take our word for it; Q-Graders around the world have scored us consistently between 85-87 points. HimalayanArabica is a quality-focused company and we strive to be the best coffee producer in Asia.
You can trace the origin of the coffee, who grows it and how much we pay the farmers so that it is easy to understand where the money goes. We are transparent with all buyers and our farmers about the value-chain and how we produce, so that everyone involved can clearly understand the actual value of our coffee.
We are sensitive to the ecological impact of growing practices, sustainability of farmlands and dignified livelihood of the farmers, that is why ‘The farmers’ Support Program’ was implemented. FSP encourages responsible growing practices to help farmers so the quality and the volume of the harvest can be improved, which increases their income as well.
