Nepal farmers eye coffee cultivation as prices rise

Nepal is not normally known as a coffee-growing country, but an increasing number of farmers in this Himalayan nation are taking up coffee cultivation amid rising prices.

Last year, the country exported nearly $1m (£640,000) worth of coffee beans.

Farmers say they are also earning more profit growing from coffee than from traditional crops.
