Despite lacking the “sexy” reputation of other Central American coffee-growing countries like Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Guatemala, Honduras has quietly become the bigger producer, exporting more volume than any other nation in the region, and the seventh overall in the world for exports. While there is certainly quantity coming out of Honduras, it can be harder to find truly quality coffees here, though, because the country lacks the infrastructure to support the more nuanced specialty market its neighbors enjoy.
The prominence of quality competitions and high-profile auctions such as the Cup of Excellence has inspired larger and wealthier producers to plant new varieties, experiment with processing, and make improvements to their technique and infrastructure. Increased research and extension services by IHCAFE have also contributed to heightened awareness of the specialty-coffee market among Honduran producers, and there is continued potential as media and social media attention increases on the nation.

Love the Honduras great taste.
Love everything we’ve had so far from Seventh Coffee but this is our basic go to everyday coffee!
After trying several of the coffees from Seventh Coffee Co., I have settled on the Honduras one, as my favourite. My husband and I love its aroma while grinding, and it’s smooth, and delicious taste - (something we look forward to each morning). We also enjoy the packaging, and prompt shipping provided by the Seventh Coffee Co.
We love the Honduras coffee. It is smooth and flavorful. This may be our favourite coffee ever!
