Driven by our passion for coffee, we came up with an idea of an institution to train interested individuals into the world of Coffee. Hence, in 2014, we registered a Barista Academy as “Himalayan Grind Coffee”. After few months or so, we began to receive an overwhelming amount of positive responses in different aspects of our campaign. This inspired us to take a step forward and serve as many aspiring youths as possible with the latest technologies in coffee art. The year, 2016, was a glorious year for us as we expanded our institution, installed latest technologies and also gained quality certification. And it was then; the world recognized us as “Mount Strada BARISTA academy”
Once we started off in the year 2016, and there has been no looking back thereafter. Along the years, we have been fortunate to see many students train and learn in this institution only to be leading business entrepreneurs themselves. Being one of the finest reputed institutions, we are often asked, what is done differently in this academy. Since, we believe in the process rather than theories alone, we tell them, we are more invested in how to do things differently. Our BARISTA training is conducted by certified professional BARISTAS from Specialty Coffee Association(SCA).
They have years of experiences in training the coffee art to the students. We have tried to simplify their effort by adding the latest technologies so that the learning curve becomes easier. We also provide the students with internship opportunities. It gives us immense pleasure to state the fact that we have had more than 1000 students trained under us. We are currently serving our 81st batch of students with the same vigor and ambition that we had on our earlier days. Students, who are trying to pursue their career abroad, are mostly enrolled in our institution. Besides that, some of the students, who are currently in Nepal are doing remarkable job in coffee industry. We are equally effective on organic coffee plantation, harvesting, purchase, roasting, selling and distribution at domestic and international market. We are also collaborated with some of the national and international coffee companies. Within relatively short period of time, we have been able to create recognition for ourselves. But we aren’t going to set our foot loose just yet. We have our heart set on developing skills of aspiring youths and helping them in their quest of achieving new heights. Our nation has extensive possibilities in coffee production and we have been working hard on reaching different regions to help the farmers on the local level as well. We are also looking forward to extending our services to different cities of Nepal in order to reach out to interested candidates all over the nation and make our academy a big family.
