What brought Dale there in 1979?
Bill Steinmetz

Dale runs the coffee shop as a missionary project to provide employment. His project is supported by the Mennonite Mission.

Yum!

Japanese language is like that. Very confusing even for natives in a certain situation to speak properly.

01:23:22
look at that old sewing machine!

Are children "indulged"?
Kathy Kelly-Borowski

How much coffee do they get out of a plant?
Deane Bartlett
01:26:07
When is the growing season?
Dave Weinstock
01:33:18
Do you have a sense for what percentage of the crop reaches the high quality Dale seeks?
Sam Jamke
01:33:42
Very different from what I saw in Costa Rica.
Adrian Noble
01:35:27
I wonder why they grow coffee rather than tea? Do they get more money for coffee?
Annette Sheldon
01:36:52
This is arabica, not robusta?
Margaret Moore
01:41:17
so good to see you Dale!

Sounds as if they are not 'tourist oriented'? How far from a tourism center?
Margaret Moore
01:42:08
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.
Dave Weinstock
01:49:46
Is rainfall adequate or must your growers irrigate? How's the soil fertility there?
Shu Wong
01:51:05
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?
Margaret Moore
