Himalaya Espresso & Tea - CAFE HEAT
The Himalayan Mountains are a crossroads where universal healing cultures continue to embrace small farmers, indigenous healers and the diverse culinary traditions of Nepal. We represent over a hundred 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, White tea & Botanical tisanes available today. At Himalaya Espresso and Tea, we donate over 5% of our net sales to fair trade, village development programs of Nepal.
Nepal's fertile soil produces coffee, tea, herbs and spices with immense complexity and a world of flavor. Cherries are sourced from glacier river valleys where trees have constant access to fresh water.
We never harvest more than once a year, placing the utmost attention on agronomic and soil conditions. By utilizing native plant populations 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 practices and help develop strategies that protect bio-diversity in this wild and pristine land.
