Nepal Organic Coffee, Ganesh Mountain Hand processed in Himalayan snowmelt water USDA Certified Organic Coffee
Organic Coffee from our Nepalese estate is owned by our exclusive partners at the Plantec Coffee Estate in Nepal. The owner & organic coffee farmer Ujjal Rana is a lively and passionate Nepali, whose organic coffee business is giving back to the people of Nepal.
He has been operating the Battar Bazaar Organic Coffee Estate for over 20 years. We are lucky enough to have very strong relations with the estate which is producing a consistent speciality 85+ Arabica organic coffee crop. The farm is located at approx. 1200 meters above sea level just below the snow line, at the foot of the Ganesh Himal mountain range. It is situated on the banks of the snow-fed Trishuli River irrigating the estate’s field & assisting with the washing process of these special beans. This is what makes this very special organic coffee very popular in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
Presently a 70-hectare coffee plantation in this vast Himalayan belt is the only producer of a superior quality speciality graded Himalayan organic coffee. The snowmelt water washed & shade-grown coffee is USDA organic certified & sun-dried. The 100% organic coffee Caturra Arabica beans are relatively short in height making for easier nurturing at harvest time.
Site visits from the USDA are conducted annually ensuring all processes and practices to the strictest standard are followed, allowing us to be confident in providing you with the best standard in organic coffee.
We recommend this single origin organic coffee to be made espresso-style or with a 27sec pour for milk based drinks.
