INTL FCStone Market Intelligence has produced the third installment in our From the Farmer Series. Alexis Rubinstein takes a detailed look at an underestimated Central American coffee producer in Honduras: The Great Coffee Comeback.
Honduras is often forgotten or underestimated against coffee giants like Brazil and Vietnam. However, Honduras ranks the 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. Properly poised for record production in the coming years, find out why Honduras should be on the radar as playing a significant role in global coffee supply.
