Himalaya Espresso & Tea
The Himalayan Mountains are a crossroads where universal healing cultures collide and continue to be embraced by small farmers, indigenous healers and enjoyed throughout the culinary traditions of Nepal. We represent over a thousand villages dedicated to continuing Himalayan traditions while building healthy, environmentally conscious communities. We work with small scale, organic farming families in Central Nepal that only grow indigenous herbs on native soils and are using this knowledge in their exploration of growing sustainable, bio-dynamic crops of Coffea arabica. We are women tea harvesters of Eastern Nepal, rising with the dawn to pick white tea buds and work collectively with hundreds of Nepali small tea farmers to produce only the best Camellia sinensis, Green, Darjeeling, Spicy Assam and White teas available today. At Himalaya Espresso and Tea, we donate over 25% of our sales to village development programs in Central Nepal. Donations are gladly accepted, especially new athletic shoes for kids and books for schools.
In Nepal, we take sustainability very seriously. All coffee and tea grown free from pesticides and herbicides, this is a way of life to sustain the land for generations. Nepal Himalayas fertile soils–coupled with sustainable farming techniques–produces coffees, teas, and spices with immense complexity and a world of flavor. Our Nepal Himalaya beans are sourced from glacier river valleys where plants have constant access to fresh water. Each of our eight coffee blends help enhance the depth of this new origin and create a fantastic cup to enjoy year round. We never harvest more than once a year, placing the utmost attention on agronomic and soil conditions. By utilizing native plant population to build small-scale farms, we increase plant yields with higher nutrient value year after year. We work cooperatively with organic farmers, learning from their sustainable agriculture practices and developing strategies to enhance bio-diversity in our growing regions.
