Features of growing Honduran green coffee
Until recently, almost all Honduran green coffee production was focused on exchange trade, and the country was seen primarily as an exporter of cheap beans. Despite the appropriate growing conditions, fertile soils, sufficient altitude (large farms located at an altitude of more than 1000 m), and excellent microclimate, the lack of infrastructure for processing and quality control of coffee has led to a bad reputation among demanding buyers. In 1998, the situation worsened: Hurricane Mitch destroyed 80% of the country's agriculture, so farmers preferred to smuggle their coffee to Guatemala at a higher price despite the government's best efforts.
The state tax on coffee exports introduced in the late 1990s and early 2000s and the massive investment in training coffee farmers and coffee experts are paying off. Now Honduras green coffee beans occupie a worthy place in the line of coffee and coffee shops worldwide and present unique lots of 90+ at the Cup of Excellence.
Today, more than 100,000 families across Honduras produce green coffee beans. 95% are small farmers, 70% are farming on an area of fewer than 2 hectares (which is about 30% of the total production in the country).
