No.001 【Introducing Nepalese Specialty Coffee from Setagaya, Tokyo】

Coffee, a delicacy loved globally, has a long history that even dates back to times before Christ, a testament to its ubiquity. Famous countries and regions known for their coffee production thrive within the "Coffee Belt", a region around the globe between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Among these, the history of coffee in Nepal is relatively short, with full-scale production beginning only about 30 years ago. Located to the south of the Himalayas, near the border with India, the Nuwakot region in central and southern Nepal is renowned for its specialty coffee production.

At altitudes of 1,200 to 1,500 meters, coffee trees thrive with a view of the sea of clouds below. They mature slowly, accumulating plenty of pure Himalayan water and moisture from the clouds. The coffee cherries, nourished over time, develop an increased sweetness. The climatic conditions in this region are excellent for coffee cultivation. Despite the roads to the coffee farms being somewhat rugged, local people laboriously hand-harvest and employ traditional methods, such as using livestock feed for pesticide-free cultivation, to continually strive for high-quality coffee.

Yeti Roastery Coffee maintains close ties with local communities by engaging in direct trade with local farmers. We aim to improve the quality of coffee and pursue more sustainable practices together. We continue to broadcast the aspirations and efforts of the Nepalese people from Japan to the world.
