Picture of a Johnny Gurkha Blend Coffee packThis comes highly recommened. I don’t have the technical words to describe its flavour etc. But it is rounded, not bitter and perfect for making in a coffee pot. Go buy some!

A picture of a cappuccinoI like Kaldi’s cappuccino (probably because of the milk) and Café Society will always make you a good cup.

Here is a list of cafés to get your memory functioning: http://www.lukeko.com/posts?tags=cafe

Where is your favourite, reliably-good cup of coffee to be found in Kathmandu? Please share your wisdom below!

[UPDATE: Would be great if you knew what kind of coffee they use there. Is it foreign fluff or home-grown gold? Perhaps ask them next time...? ]

Picture of a packet of Royal Everest CoffeeIt’s Royal Everest Coffee! Perhaps this is aimed at those people nostalgic for when the country was ruled by a super-wealthy, rotund gent and his super-wealthy, rotund family.

Any thoughts on the taste of this one?

Cafe Olla’s own

Don’t have a picture of this one. Café Olla is opposite mandala Book Point on Kathipath (see map on http://www.lukeko.com/posts/716 ). They grow their own coffee in Gumdi somewhere in Lalitpur. The beans are roasted freshly upstairs on the premises. If you buy some coffee from them, they will grind it there in front of you. So at least you know it is super fresh. And it is pretty powerful – the smell is fantastic. Its 100% arabica and perhaps a little strong for some. Was very good in this morning’s latte though.
