The center of the coffee cherry (fruit) is referred to as the bean or seed. After the cherry is harvested, the coffee bean is processed by either wet processing – the washed method, which includes pulping, milling, fermentation, and drying), or by dry processing (the natural method) which involves drying the coffee with the fruit still on the coffee beans. After processing, the green coffee beans are roasted which are referred to Roasted Beans Coffee.
Himalayan Arabica Organic Roasted Coffee is produced and processed in the mountainous regions of Nepal at an altitude ranging from 4,430 – 5,245 feet above the sea level. Nepal’s coffee is unique in character growing in one of the northernmost coffee regions in the world. Grown at the Green agro Organic Farm at , an ethical organic farm in Nepal built on the principles of health, ecology, fairness, and care for the staff and their families. Awarded “Best Producer of 2016 and 2017′ by the Nepalese Government, and ‘Best Gourmet Coffee of 2017’ International Contest competition in Paris, France.
Our coffee beans are Natural – Organic by default. We do not use any harmful pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Most of the coffee is grown either in wild forests or at organic farmlands. These days, the maize or millet crops are being replaced by coffee plantations where general compost, cow, buffalo, goat or chicken manure are used as fertilizer.
Our coffee plants are under a canopy of trees. Shade grown coffee is always better than sun-tolerant coffee. Shade trees play a fundamental role in regulating the microclimate of coffee plantations. It also regulates agronomic conditions such as vegetative growth and bean development. Shade grown coffee taste better because coffee grown in the shade takes longer time to ripen, which contributes to the complex flavor of the coffee.
Selective picking by hand is a labor intensive, costly and a difficult process but it is the most important step towards maintaining high quality coffee because there are only two direction the coffee quality can go, either you maintain the quality you already have or it deteriorates over time. We pick the best cherries individually by hand, separating and discarding the unripe or overripe cherries. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at the peak of ripeness.
Roasting Coffee transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans into roasted coffee products. The roasting process is what produces the characteristic flavor of coffee by causing the green coffee beans to change in taste. Unroasted beans contain similar if not higher levels of acids, protein, sugars, and caffeine as those that have been roasted, but lack the taste of roasted coffee beans due to the Maillard and other chemical reactions that occur during roasting.
The vast majority of coffee is roasted commercially on a large scale, but small-scale commercial roasting has grown significantly with the trend toward “single-origin” coffees served at specialty shops. Some coffee drinkers even roast coffee at home as a hobby in order to both experiment with the flavor profile of the beans and ensure the freshest possible roast.
Roasting brings out the aroma and flavor that is locked inside the green coffee beans. Beans are stored green, a state in which they can be kept without loss of quality or taste. A green bean has none of the characteristics of a roasted bean — it’s soft and spongy to the bite and smells grassy.
Roasting causes chemical changes to take place as the beans are rapidly brought to very high temperatures. When they reach the peak of perfection, they are quickly cooled to stop the process. Roasted beans smell like coffee, and weigh less because the moisture has been roasted out. They are crunchy to the bite, ready to be ground and brewed.
Once roasted, however, they should be used as quickly as possible before the fresh roast flavor begins to diminish.
Roasting is both an art and a science
It takes years of training to become an expert roaster with the ability to “read” the beans and make decisions with split-second timing. The difference between perfectly roasted coffee and a ruined batch can be a matter of seconds.
Know Your Roasts
Most roasters have specialized names for their favored roasts and there is very little industry standardization. This can cause some confusion when you’re buying, but in general, roasts fall into one of four color categories — light, medium, medium-dark and dark.
Many consumers assume that the strong, rich flavor of darker roasts indicates a higher level of caffeine, but the truth is that light roasts actually have a slightly higher concentration.
The perfect roast is a personal choice that is sometimes influenced by national preference or geographic location. Within the four color categories, you are likely to find common roasts as listed below. It’s a good idea to ask before you buy. There can be a world of difference between roasts.
Light brown in color, this roast is generally preferred for milder coffee varieties. There will be no oil on the surface of these beans because they are not roasted long enough for the oils to break through to the surface.
- Light City
- Half City
This roast is medium brown in color with a stronger flavor and a non-oily surface. It’s often referred to as the American roast because it is generally preferred in the United States.
Medium dark roasts
Rich, dark color, this roast has some oil on the surface and with a slight bittersweet aftertaste.
- Full City
This roast produces shiny black beans with an oily surface and a pronounced bitterness. The darker the roast, the less acidity will be found in the coffee beverage. Dark roast coffees run from slightly dark to charred, and the names are often used interchangeably — be sure to check your beans before you buy them!

Are there health benefits in coffee?
Organic Coffee is increasingly being tied to a healthy lifestyle. Some studies show organic coffee consumption linked to lower rates of type 2 diabetes, abnormal heart rhythms and stroke. Some tests demonstrate lowered risk of liver cancer and potentially a lower chance of Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s. Because we enjoy both organic coffee and tea for their tastes, their potential benefits on our health come as an added bonus.
How does Fair Trade address environmental issues such as shade grown and organic?
About 85% of Fair Trade Certified coffee is shade grown and either passive or certified organic. Over half of the certified organic coffee is produced by Fair Trade cooperatives, but unless the coffee is Fair Trade Certified, there is no guarantee that the farmer received the benefit. Certified organic coffees in the Fair Trade market receive a $.25 premium per pound. Typically, small farmers have never had the money to finance cutting down of the trees or purchase large amounts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Small farmers have traditionally passed on sustainable farming techniques to their children. We believe that small farmers are the best stewards of the land, with the highest interest in living in and passing on land with healthy soil free from harmful pesticides to their children. Paying farmers a fair wage with incentives for ecological practices is the best way to encourage sustainable farming. Fair Trade helps guarantee that the benefits of organic farming techniques reach the farmer as well as the consumer and the environment.
We support the shade grown/bird-friendly as well as organic labeling movements as an important tool for consumers to make responsible choices about environmental conservation, and support the double- or triple-labeling of coffee. Most consumers who believe in supporting living wages for farmers also support sustainable farming practices that promote environmental conservation.
