HAMRO COFFEE is a two year project, supported by the EU, and implemented by ICCO in six coffee growing districts of Nepal. The project aims to increase income of small holders through an improved market driven specialty coffee sector by focusing on quality and quantity of coffee cherries produced and upgrading primary processing to ensure quality of green beans, leading in the long term to increased demand of unique Nepalese specialty coffee in the domestic and international markets.

HAMRO COFFEE project is part of the larger Support for Trade and Economic Capacity Building: Trade and Private Sector Development Programme launched by EU and the Government of Nepal in September 2014. Jointly envisioned by ICCO Cooperation, CEAPRED and NCPA, the two year HAMRO COFFEE project aims to increase income of small holders through an improved market driven specialty coffee sector. The consortium aimed to achieve this goal by realising outcomes and activities that expand across production, processing, marketing and institutional strengthening.

The action was primarily focused on enhancing the quality and quantity of coffee cherries produced, and upgrading primary processing to ensure quality of green beans that would in the long term lead to increased demand of unique Nepalese specialty coffee in the domestic and international niche markets. Further, the project worked to remove access to barriers from 'Bean to Cup' and strengthen linkages across the coffee-value chain.
