Once in a while, you have the chance to taste a coffee that truly surprises you. Many have never tried Nepalese coffee before, but after tasting this one you’ll wonder what took you so long.

ICT has procured a few bags of this very special coffee, available for nationwide delivery.  Nepal is a small coffee producer when judged by volume and not well-known in the specialty coffee world, but this coffee displays the remarkable quality this up and coming origin is capable of delivering. 

Greenland Farm is an ethical farm in Nepal built on the principles of health, ecology, fairness, and care for the staff and their families. The coffee operation is led by  Raj Kumar Banjara, a coffee researcher and the first Arabica Q Grader in Nepal. 

Greenland Farm has initiated ‘The Farmer Support Program (FSP)’ to enhance sustainable practices in coffee-growing regions and to help growers implement more responsible growing practices, improve the quality and size of their harvests, and ultimately earn better incomes.  The farm does not use synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers.  Most of the coffee is grown in wild forests. Coffee plantations are small, and general compost, cow, buffalo, goat or chicken manure are used as fertilizer.

This coffee was grown at Dudh Pokhari Village in the Lamjung District at an elevation of 1,350 meters. Nepal is one of the Northernmost coffee regions in the world, and this coffee is unique in character.  The farm was awarded  “Best Producer of 2016′ by the Nepalese Government, and ‘Best Gourmet Coffee of 2016’  at the 2nd International Contest of Coffee Roasted in their Countries of Origin competition in Paris.
