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.

Coffea arabica - cattura & pachamara varieties - cherries, freshly harvested from the highlands of Central Nepal's glacier river valleys; they will suspend on woven bamboo mats until they have dried the outer cherry enough to peel it easily away from the pericardium skin underneath. Whether the coffee beans are further washed, once the cherry hulls are removed would determine if they were sold as 'wet' or 'dry' processed or semi-washed beans.

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.


Himalayan culture is historic and just within the country of Nepal, goes back over 500 years. This highly respected and civilized society of Nepalese people were making  exquisite jewelry before metallurgy and gem processing was practiced in the European world. This young maiden, is wearing a fortune in hand-crafted gold and semi-precious gems around her neck, a showcase of not only her wealth and rank in society, but a cultural expression of her Hindu beliefs. Beautiful jewelry was used as a form of currency before banks were ever known in Nepal and used to trade with all neighboring Himalayan countries. These wonderful, highly-prized crafts spurred on the expansion of  the European Age of Discovery to trade with Asian countries including Nepal, India and China.
