The original and the best, since 1983

Nepal Coffee Company (NCC) produces produces premium, shade grown, certified organic Arabica coffee from the beautiful Himalaya. Our green beans and roasted coffee are available on the export and domestic market.

“I’ve just profiled both the NCC coffees you gave me and they’re amazing. I’ve put them on filter and I’m getting some good specialty notes from both farms. I roasted your coffees light for filter and they stood up extremely well. Let’s look at next steps, I am super keen for us to work together.”

Empowering women

Like many other industries in Nepal, coffee is still a male-dominated industry, and we have a long way to go in gender equality and inclusion. However, the government is promoting female entrepreneurship in agriculture, which hopefully will attract more women into coffee in the future.

We also push this agenda at NCC, actively hiring women and people from marginalised communities. Within three months, from late 2021 to early 2022, NCC hired three women in management positions.

We take great pride in empowering local Nepali women and employ 20 Nepali women/sisters at our processing facility. Several sisters have worked with us loyally for the last 25 years and we are very proud to call them our partners.

“I hope to see more women involved in management in the industry, not just in the agricultural sector.”
