About the bean:
These 100% Arabica beans come from not just the only plantation in Nepal and the Himalayas, but also the northernmost coffee plantation in the entire northern hemisphere. All the beans are organically grown using natural fertilizers on completely reforested land. The plantation owners are strong advocates of environmental initiatives, contributing to such programs as reforestation, soil conservation and preservation of natural habitats. The beans are shade-grown, wet-processed washed in cold Himalayan river water from the Ganesh Himal Mountain Range, sun-dried, and hand-sorted. The beans are then stored in hand-stitched jute bags with screen print.

Growing high-quality, organic coffee in an environmentally-sound manner is just one aspect of this plantation. Because it's in a economically isolated and under-developed region, the plantation has helped create new jobs and bring in much-needed foreign currency for residents. This international trade has helped support a Primary and Secondary school in the plantation's vicinity. It has also contributed to establishing a vibrant local economy, as the plantation buys compost from small farmers during their off-season.

This coffee has an excellent flavor and a light body.

Roasting requirements:
Medium to Full roast.

"The Nepalese is like a perfect friendship - no wrong notes, everything in deep concord. It is a full and complex flavour, embellished with light notes of honey and caramel, extraordinarily well balanced all across the tongue, lightly astringent, with just enough acidity to make it interesting."
