Nepal. Then it spread from one farmer to another as a peculiar ornamental plant for the next four decades. It was only in the 1980s that coffee was finally
considered to be a cash crop in Gulmi District. It has been gaining popularity as highland coffee in the international market and the area under cultivation is
also increasing. Coffee can be commercially produced in many parts of the country. However, there is great potentiality in mid hills region for organic coffee
