What brought Dale there in 1979?
Dale runs the coffee shop as a missionary project to provide employment. His project is supported by the Mennonite Mission.
Japanese language is like that. Very confusing even for natives in a certain situation to speak properly.
look at that old sewing machine!
Are children "indulged"?
How much coffee do they get out of a plant?
When is the growing season?
Do you have a sense for what percentage of the crop reaches the high quality Dale seeks?
Very different from what I saw in Costa Rica.
I wonder why they grow coffee rather than tea? Do they get more money for coffee?
This is arabica, not robusta?
so good to see you Dale!
Sounds as if they are not 'tourist oriented'? How far from a tourism center?
Hope your family is well. We have read so much about how difficult the pandemic has been for Nepal. You and your family have very much been in our thoughts.
Is rainfall adequate or must your growers irrigate? How's the soil fertility there?
Since this is far tourist area. Who are your customers? Is it mostly the locals or is there a plan to export the coffee to the main tourist areas to increase sales? How is the demand vs supply?
Thank you so much Dale for your time
