#2 NEPAL no koto


All the coffee we handle comes from the small village of Harpan in Nepal. Nepalese coffee is characterised by its high aroma and a clean aftertaste with no bitterness.

Its flavour is said to be close to that of nuts,
and even those who do not like the lingering bitterness and excessive acidity of black coffee can enjoy it.
The coffee has been evaluated by professionals and coffee lovers alike, and has received high praise for being ‘refreshing’, ‘easy to drink’ and ‘aromatic even when cold’.

Local buyers also carefully select only the best quality coffee beans to send to Japan, so that they can enjoy high quality, consistent and delicious coffee. The village of Harupan, where our coffee is grown, is located at an altitude of approximately 1,200 m and is more than eight hours’ drive from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. The road leading to the village is unpaved from the halfway point, and you have to drive directly across the river and climb a rickety road to finally reach it.

The village, with its expansive wilderness, has a spectacular view point overlooking the foothills, with an unobstructed, panoramic view of the Himalayan Mountains, which is truly refreshing. In Harupan village, the traditional way of life centred on self-sufficiency makes you feel as if you are in a nostalgic homeland. The people of Nepal live in mutual support, recognising diversity beyond birth, faith, ethnicity and race. When even first-time visitors visit, they are warmly welcomed by the villagers, who gather from all over the village and entertain them with feasts and traditional songs and dances until late into the night.
