Imagine winding through narrow roads and passing by small farms set amidst shady foothills with towering mountains in the background. This is what you can expect while exploring the Syangja and Palpa districts, where this coffee is grown. Definitely not easy to access, since it takes about 8.5 hours to reach this region from Katmandu (the capital of Nepal).
Coffee from Nepal is definitely not common, mostly because it is quite difficult to import from the landlocked remote region. Krishna Ghimire played a role in introducing specialty coffee to the Nepalese population in this region around 1983. Over the past 30 years, this operation has help uplift countless rural farmers.
The operation helps improve the lives of the general population in the Syanja & Palpa districts by helping the farmers lift themselves out of poverty by continually growing high quality coffee and exporting coffee to global buyers. The farmers get paid directly and fairly, so they can live a sustainable lifestyle without worrying about food, shelter and water.
