History of Honduras
1804, in the Comayagua department, was the first recorded harvest. Coffee has played a significant role in the national economy since then, so much so that credit is largely given to coffee for preventing the national government from going bankrupt during financial crisis in 2009.
During 2011, Honduras surpassed Guatemala as the largest Central American coffee producer and exporter, and by 2012, Honduras had become the second world exporter of washed Arabica coffee.
Today, Honduras is the largest producer of coffee in Central America and the 7th largest worldwide. The Country has 18 departments (298 municipalities) and coffee is grown in 15 departments (210 municipalities) of these. Coffee is the way of life for some 350,000 families, generating over 1 million jobs and representing 35% of the agricultural GDP.
