Coffee in Honduras

Honduras is considered the top coffee producer in Central America as of 2011. In past years, Honduran coffee growers smuggled their beans into Guatemala, where they would go for a higher selling price, based on the already set selling reputation Guatemala had. The transportation of coffee from one place to another is not considered illegal, since coffee is not a prohibited item. After government tax on coffee exports started to play a role in the coffee business, they boosted production and dramatically improved their coffee quality. Since then, demand has increased and smuggling coffee across the border has become unnecessary. 

Cafe Organico Marcala
Cafe Organico Marcala coffee is grown by a group a farmers under the name, "Cafe Organico Marcala S.A. or COMSA. It originated from a group of organized producers in the Savings and Credit Rural Box of 2000, interested in selling their coffee to differentiated markets and at better prices. With the support of FUNDER it was founded on December 13th, 2001 as a Variable Stock Corporation. It is formed by 316 partners. COMSA produces around 26,145 quintals of exportable green coffee. Currently the company exports coffee with the Fair Trade Seal, Bio-Latin Organic and Denomination of Origin Marcala (DOP), there are advances for the certification of 50 producers for the UTZ seal.

Coffee Grading in Honduras

Honduran coffees are graded based upon the altitude at which they were grown and classified as either Strictly High Grown (SHG), High Grown (HG), and Central Standard. Coffee trees grown in select mountainous regions in altitudes between 4,000 and 6,000 feet elevations are considered SHG specialty coffees. The low temperatures and high altitudes aid in producing a slow maturing fruit as well as a harder, more dense bean. High Grown (HG) coffee grows at altitudes between 2,000 and 3,900 feet above sea level, and Central Standard below an altitude of 2,300 feet in a warmer climate. Once the coffee is harvested, the raw beans are all hand sorted by what is called the European Preparation (EP), to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
