An excellent coffee, for any extraction method, with bright notes of dark chocolate and cloves. The Caturra variety is grown by Nepal Plantec Coffee at the foot of the Ganesh mountain range, 70 km north of the capital Kathmandu. Growing such a unique coffee crop at this altitude is made possible thanks to its latitude and a regular water supply from the nearby Trisuli River which collects snow run-off and is perfect for field and coffee tree irrigation. Growing coffee isn't the only local source of income, livestock farming, such as buffaloes, is also common in this area. Nepal Plantec Coffee is known for developing both environmental and societal projects such as the reintroduction of animal and plant species. Plantec promotes the creation of local jobs with better working conditions and gives priority to women.
