Honduras is a beautiful country that occupies an important place in Central American history. At one time the ancient Mayan city of Copan was seen as the capital of the Central America until around 900 AD when, like a lot of the other Mayan cities, it was mysteriously abandoned. However, it is also one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere and was one of the worst hit countries affected by Hurricane Mitch in 1997.
In recent years Honduras has been re-establishing itself as a leading exporter from Central America. Honduras has great potential for high quality coffees with distinct regions such as Marcala, Capucas and Los Alpes offering a surprising variety of cup character. Additionally commercial grade SHGs and HGs can offer a good bodied medium acidic coffee useful for blending purposes. Harvest is from October to March.
