Origins: Honduras

Following a brisk growth in production, this lush and mountainous country is now the world's third largest producer of washed Arabica. And the future looks bright: Honduras has strengthened its already strong coffee industry with a commitment to revitalizing its farms with new plantings. Offering a wide range of coffees, Honduras has recently captured the attention of specialty roasters with high-quality beans treated with care from the tree to the mill, and beyond.
