About the Process

Lekali Yeast/ Yasoda Washed: In this process, the coffee cherries are weighed after removal of floaters and other defects. After weighing the coffee cherries , it was pulped and then inoculated in by a specific strain of yeast ( LAL CAFE INTENSO) with a calculated amount required for the weight of the coffee parchments that is to be fermented. The parchments were then stored in an anaerobic condition for 42 hrs during which the fermentation/microbial activities were monitored via checking the temperature and pH of the fermentation tanks, aroma and texture. After 42 hrs the coffee parchment was left to sun dry for fast drying for 9 days till the suitable moisture content was reached. After this the parchments were stored in hermetic sealed bags.

Nima is sourcing Specialty Coffee from two key regions in Nepal: The first one being Lamjung in Gandaki Province in Central Nepal.

Gurungs of Nepal, living mainly on the southern flank of the Annapürna mountain massif, are natives of the village of Ghanpokara in Lamjung. A traditional warrior tribe that is deeply entrenched inthe history of the valley, the Gurungs have made their home in Lamjung and its soil.

Ganga Jung Gurung, Headmaster of the primary school at Lamjung District, has read the landscape to produce Nepal's finest Specialty Coffee in the region. His entire family, dedicated to cultivating coffee on their farm, is testament to the strength and resolve of the Gurungs.

Nuwakot, Bagmati, Nepal

The second region is Nuwakot, Bagmati Province in Central Nepal. At the confluence of rivers Trishuli and Tandi lies Nuwakot, a terrain with fertile soil that is the backbone of the specialty coffee movement in Nepal. Ideal for cultivating specialty Arabica, Nuwakot is deeply entrenched in modern Nepali history. Working with smallholder farms in Nuwakot.
