Honduras

Coffee producers in Honduras have long suffered the repercussions of global market trends, leaf rust, and the limitations being a small scale farmer places on your profitability. Of the 105,171 coffee producers registered with the Instituto Hondureno del Cafe (IHCAFE), 104,416 are small to medium sized producers and together they produce 86% of the country’s production. Having traveled to Honduras repeatedly to source coffee, meeting producers, seeing both the qualities of their coffees and the care taken in their production, we know that they remain very vulnerable.

What we source

We started buying coffees from Caballeros already in 2012. Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises Herrera are working with over 200 hectares of land together with Marysabel’s father Fabio Caballero. We also work with 250 growers in the Intibuca region where we some years ago found exceptional quality from farmers which production average 20-50 bags.

The future of Honduras

The majority of farmers in Honduras have small to medium sized farms. They produce to parchment stage, yet are unable to dry mill, sort and grade their coffee for export. There is also a real lack of service providers for smaller scale production which forces farmers to sell their coffee in a way that does not allow any differentiation, as a generic regional product.We aim to find solutions partnering with mills that enable us to bring these exceptional farmers forward.

Honduras presents as an exception in Central American coffee production, being the only country to increase volume, and at a rapid rate. Steadily holding its place within the top ten producing countries of arabica coffee, Honduras went from the fifth largest producer of arabica in the world, to the third in 2018, overtaking Ethiopia.
