WHERE IS OUR FARM?
We have two beautiful coffee farms: ‘Farm Hilltop’ and ‘Farm Basecamp’. Both of them are located at Chyamrang Besi of Kavre District Nepal. Farm Hilltop (27.453613, 85.434472) is at 1690 meter altitude, probably the highest in Nepal with some old Pacamara plants. Farm Basecamp (27.450869, 85.421375) is at 1100 to 1300 Meters. We are growing some of the finest arabica washed, natural and honey processed coffee normally scoring 82 to some nano lots of 89 points.
HOW TO REACH OUR FARM?
Greenland Organic Coffee Farm is located at 58 Kilometers South East from Kathmandu, around 4.5 hours off road bumpy drive and at least 45 minutes sharp uphill trek. Located at Bhairabthan Mtn., Lamidanda village, near Chyamrang Besi of Kavre District Nepal. We love to take you in our coffee farm. Its small, little far but most people feel good when they reach at the farm. We can make a customize trip for you and your team. Feel free to contact us anytime.
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
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.
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 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.
WOMEN COFFEE PROGRAM
HimalayanArabica® Coffee has initiated ‘Women Coffee Program’ because we think – Coffee is the right way for Nepali Women Empowerment. It is estimated that more than 90% of Nepali coffee is produced by women only but their contribution has hardly been recognized! The acknowledgement of this fact is important to encourage and recognize the participation and contribution of women in Nepali Coffee industry.
PACKING GREEN COFFEE
50 Kg Jute Bag
Grain Pro bag inside, and jute outside
HimalayanArabica follows strict international standardized packing procedures and have more than 20 years of experience without a mistake. Without compromising safety, we use the most affordable method to package the coffee so you can keep your mind at ease while saving money. Grainpro and Jute-sacks are used in combination to ensure the longest shelf life while keeping it nice and secure.
SHIPPING BY AIR
Air freight and Customs Clearance
Greenland Organic Farm is registered food facility to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA registration No. 18457994286). We will go through the prior notice system so that your shipment can be processed easily through customs. We prefer air freight. Both port-to-port regular cargo (CIF) or door delivery (DDU) are absolutely fine with us.
Because Nepal is a land-locked country. The nearest seaport is at Kolkata (CCU) India. Freight charges between air and sea are not much difference. If you add the land transportation cost and India-Nepal border customs formalities then the cost seems similar for LCL shipments. But if your order is 1X20’FCL (16 tonnes) or bigger we offer Ventilated containers (coffee containers) to load in Kathmandu.
