Responsibly and ethically sourced coffee from Nepal
Lying between the historic and culturally rich capital of Kathmandu and the striking peaks of the Himalayans is a swath of rural hillside villages. We personally travel there to work with coffee farms and connect them to you.
We place emphasis on working with small farmers in an ethical manner and true transparency. Together with the farmers from Nepal, we aim to bring the best coffee beans from Nepal and share something truly unique with you.
We pride ourselves in working with farmers who are not only passionate about coffee but also utilize it to build up their community.
Spotlight on Nepal
Nuwa Estate Coffee of Nepal
Our current offer comes from Nuwa Estate Coffee which is located in Nuwakot, Nepal.
Nuwa was started in 2007 by Bandi Nima Sherpa Tenzing, one of the few female entrepreneurs in Nepal. Her vision was to build opportunities in rural areas that would help the people living there combat the serious issues they faced in human trafficking through education. She has been relentless in establishing Nuwa coffee as a premier specialty coffee producer, and works to connect other farmers in the area to resources such as plants, knowledge and technology so that new farms can partake in growing coffee as a new and profitable alternative. Their involvement in the community also lead them to form a non profit, the Nepal Green Tara Foundation (NGTF). Through NGTF they have built 4 schools in Nuwakot and continue to support their operation and teacher’s salaries. A portion of our sales goes directly to NGTF.
