A HUMBLE BEGINNING
In 1999, Gagan Pradhan and Anand Gurung opened a small coffee house in the heart of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal.
A proper coffee house was a brand new concept in a tea-loving Himalayan nation. At the time, Nepali Coffee Production was in its infancy. Nepali Coffee industry was a little over a decade old with a handful of farmers with small coffee farms, mainly supported through Governmental subsidized programs. However, Nepali Arabica Coffee was quickly gaining popularity outside of Nepal while it was entirely unknown to the natives. Himalayan Java is now a popular destination for many in Nepal.
