About Us

In 1999, we started off as the first specialty coffee shop in Nepal to specialize in handcrafted coffee and bakery. Over the years, we have diversified from a small coffee shop to an international franchising Nepalese Coffee Brand with more than 30 outlets around the world.

We believe in maintaining a sustainable business ecosystem by supporting local farmers and Nepali products. Through continuous innovation in technology & process, we hope to become the most inspiring Nepalese Coffee Establishment in the world taking Nepalese Coffee and Culture to the world.

Himalayan Java is the first specialty coffeehouse in Nepal. With a strong core belief of socially responsible entrepreneurship, our mission is to promote the fledgling Nepalese coffee industry by investing in people from grower to consumer and to create awareness of promoting Nepalese coffee domestically and in an international niche market.
