Fresh Harvest 2018: Artisan Green Coffee for Craft Roasters

We promote and sell only the finest, top quality specialty grade Nepali coffee most of which are grown and harvested by the hardworking hands of women. Most of the artisan roasters have many questions to us about the coffee’s lineage and story behind — where exactly was the coffee grown? who was the grower? what was the altitude? what varietal, region and process method?

We have all the answers. You might like to click here to learn more or you can directly email us.

Nepali Coffee

Much of the highest quality Arabica coffee in the world is produced in mountainous regions between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, also known as the ‘Coffee Belt’. Nepal, which is not in the tropics (located beyond 23° latitude), still grows some of the highest quality coffee among the highest elevations in the world, which has stunned coffee connoisseurs around the planet.

The vast majority of the coffee grown in Nepal is an Arabica mix of Bourbon and Typica - the variety that originated on Reunion Island and is now dominant in Rwanda and other East African countries. Nepali coffee is the product of more than thirty-thousand small-scale farmers that hand pick and hand pulp the ripe cherries. Wet processing takes place on the farm, before the coffee is sold to a nearby cooperative.

Our Core Values

Quality

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 85-89 points. Himalayan Arabica is a quality-focused company and we strive to be the best coffee producer in Asia.

Traceability

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.

Ethics

We are sensitive to the ecological impact of growing practices, sustainability of farmlands and dignified livelihood of the farmers, that is why ‘The Farmer Support Program’ has been implemented which encourages responsible growing practices to help farmers so the quality and the volume of the harvest can be improved, which increases their income significantly.

Farmer Support Program

HimalayanArabica® Coffee has initiated ‘The Farmer Support Program (FSP)’ to enhance sustainable practices in coffee-growing regions and to help growers implement more responsible growing practices, improve the quality and size of their harvests, and ultimately earn better incomes. Through FSP, we have been promoting premium coffee in the global market and we’re steadfastly committed to helping small-scale farmers thrive now and in the future.
