Honduras is not as well known a coffee producing country as its neighbors, such as Guatemala, Costa Rica and El Salvador, but in fact Honduras has the perfect combination of soil, altitude and climate for growing coffee and produces a superior bean – something coffee experts have increasingly come to recognize.
Honduras coffee beans are produced by a rich Arabica variety of the coffee plant. The beans that result are typically wet processed and used as a base for making other coffee blends. When produced as a single-origin coffee and lightly roasted it has a delicate, smooth texture and a slightly sweet taste. It can be grown at a range of altitudes and produces a dense bean that is rich in flavor but has a delicate, light finish. Coffee experts believe its quality is just as good as the better marketed products from neighboring coffee producing countries.
