Organic Coffee Crop 2 Cup

Organic Coffee Crop 2 Cup

per person

When you think of Nepal topics such as the Himalayas, dal baht, kumari, tea, Gurkhas and much more often spring to mind. But, did you know it has a great emerging coffee scene? Whilst tea is still a tough competitor, the growth, demand and sourcing for organic coffee is on the rise.

 

Did you know that coffee only came to Nepal several years back? A returning traveller brought back some plants from their ventures abroad to their town in the Argakanchi district in Mid Western Nepal. Once home, he started to plant in his garden. After seeing the plants grow, neighbours began to do the same. Once ripe everyone was clueless on what to do with the beans.

 

It wasn’t until the last 15-20 years, that the growth of coffee has risen rapidly in hill regions which are often between 900m-1800m altitude. Turning into an ideal cash crop for the locals. Currently, to this day coffee estates are slowly but gradually operating. Behind them are mainly farmers who own small lands which consist of a few planted seedlings. Then, local collectors, do a dual role in processing the beans. Finally, wholesalers pick up, package and sell onto coffee shops across Nepal.

 

If you’re a coffee-lover, this trip is definitely for you. As you will experience the whole process and the authentic way in comparison to large scale factories in other countries. You will visit local villages, witness agricultural mechanism functions, participate in harvesting and processing (depending on the time of year). On this trip, you will also learn about how the import and retail industries function.

 

We tailor this trip to you and it’s completely flexible. So, you can choose between going to easy accessible locations such as Begnas nearby Pokhara for the farm component, to remote locations in Gorkha or Ilam. Also, stay options can be adjusted between farm stays or hotel stays.
