Nepal’s Impossible Beans

In the episode Himalayan Outpost, Todd takes on the daunting task of finding a delicious coffee bean for his client, Stephan Starr, whose brutal honesty and high standards raise the stakes. Due to Nepal’s humid climate, it’s nearly impossible to get fresh coffee beans from the farms high in the Himalayas to restaurants in the United States. But Todd pulls it off for Starr’s series of Buddakan restaurants, making it the only restaurant in the country to serve coffee from the birthplace of Buddha. You can find this extra-special coffee at Buddakan restaurants in New York City, Atlantic City and its flagship location in Philadelphia.
