Honduras grows Arabica coffee beans in several of its regions. While the country has become the 7th largest producer of coffee beans in the world, it hasn’t always been the case, and it owes a lot to the Institute of Honduran Coffee. While the country’s altitude and tropical climate are perfect for cultivating coffee plants, too much of a good thing can be a problem, and Honduras sometimes suffer from heavy rainfall which makes it difficult to dry the harvested beans properly, or started coffee rust epidemics.
The Institute was very involved in encouraging coffee farmers to rethink their strategy and choose varietals which were less prone to coffee rust, and to perfect their drying process. It was also instrumental in establishing the country’s Cup of Excellence (COE) competitions which put Honduras on the map as far as coffee was concerned.
And this is a good thing as Honduras truly produces a unique coffee, with a range of interesting flavours from vanilla , chocolate and hazelnut to fruity tones.
We selected organic, Fairtrade coffee for its subtle palette of flavours and their superior quality compared to bulk producers’ beans. It is light enough to be enjoyed all day long and will lend itself beautifully to a medium-strong espresso or a mild latte, as well as filter and cafetière systems.
