Honduras – the great coffee comeback
When thinking about the most impactful coffee producing countries of the world, the coffee giants, such as Brazil and Vietnam, are usually the first to come to mind. Honduras, however, is often forgotten or underestimated. However, Honduras ranks first in Central America, third in Latin America, and sixth globally in coffee exports by volume, according to the USDA, with production levels steadily increasing since the outbreak of roya, the coffee leaf rust disease, in 2012-2013.
In addition to the impressive export and production levels, it is the country’s remarkable productivity that set it apart from most other producing countries in the world.
