eco-friendly coffee farm
“Our coffee beans are growing in the forest understory in its wild form in the mountain region of Nepal. The forest-like structure of shade coffee farms provides habitat for a great number of migratory and resident species.”
Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways based on an understanding of ecosystem services, the study of relationships between organisms and their environment. What grows where and how it is grown are a matter of choice and careful consideration for nature and communities.
Thapa are very aware and understand of it. Our coffee is grown beneath shade trees to create an ideal microclimate for coffee plants that eliminates the need for chemicals to be used. We use organic fertilizers that are made of the manure of buffalo, cattle or sheep in the same farm, hay bales and straw residues, used for litter.
This litter manure is obtained from these three components. After cattle is moved to natural pastures, empty farms are used for manure composting. Manure is pushed into piles. Piles are controlled based on a special humidity and temperature chart, thus initiating the composting cycle in the piles.
We want to truly empower the communities that bring amazing coffee to you. That’s why we reinvest 20% of our profits into farms, local businesses and schools everywhere our coffee is grown. You can see the communities grow and learn more about coffee farming on our blog.
