Honduras

Westrock works directly with
partners in Honduras to ensure
traceable, transparent and
quality coffee is available for
our coffee blends.

Home to an estimated 110,000 coffee farming families, Honduras is the largest coffee producing country in Central America. Unsurprisingly, coffee plays a vital role in the nation’s economy, and along with bananas, accounts for 50% of the country’s yearly exports.

Despite this fact, and due to a lack of investment and infrastructure, Honduras has historically been known more for the volume of coffee produced, as opposed to the quality, especially when compared with its Central American neighbors. However, Honduras has a huge potential for improvements and signs in recent years have been extremely positive, as the specialty coffee sector in the country grows.
