Nepal - Abode of the Gods, the highest mountain on earth and the Land of the fables Sherpa. For many people this land stirs mystical visions and a trip to Nepal becomes a dream of a lifetime. Most visitors come to Nepal for its mountains, but his not where the discovery ends. Nepal is abound with hidden secrets and the production or organic coffee is one.
For a coffee connoisseur, Nepal offers the chance to experience one of the rarest ocffees in the world. The unique climate and terrain allows for a very high quality coffee to be grown which has a very distinct taste. The Arabica beans are grown here between 900-1800 meters in some of the most picturesque farms one could think of.
This trip takes you up close and personal with this cofee, while the Himalayas create the backdrop, almost as if they do not want to take the joy of the mountains away from you. You meet the farmers, help in the farm (depending on the time of year, either harvest, tend, sort), visit the production chain processes and end up drinking that very coffee, which was roasted right in from of your eyes.
This trip will change your perspective about the coffee staring at you right now! Period.
