Story

Nepal is an incredibly tiny and brand new producing country in the specialty coffee market. Having not grown any specialty coffee until the 1980's, they still export only about a million pounds of green coffee each year - less than we as just one roaster serve in a calendar year. Despite being a tiny player in the producing market, Nepal is making big time waves in the industry, the vast majority of which being made by Nima Tenzing, the producer of our lot. Nima was one of the first specialty producers in the country, and after a few years of success and developing his expertise as a coffee grower, harvester, and processor, he is now turning to his neighboring community largely in a mentoring role to help educate local producers on best practices and to continue building the quality and quantity of great coffees coming out of Nepal.
