The Country

Honduras is a vibrant country, brimming with clear turquoise waters, pristine beaches, lush jungles, breathtaking mountains, challenging rivers, and fascinating ancient ruins. Vast expanses of Mother Nature are to be found everywhere.

The country of Honduras is home to people from various ancestries, from the Mayan Indians, who left us the Copan Ruins archaeological site (considered one of the most artistically advanced and elaborate of all Mayan cities) to the Garifuna communities (known in Europe as the Black Caribs) which are found today on the Island of Roatan and costal cities within Honduras.

 

>> History

There are no specific data to determine with certainty, the time the first seeds and plants of coffee were brought to Honduras, or the names of those who were privileged to deliver them to this country.

"A source of information is what the tradition tells us. It seems that the first coffee beans were brought to Honduras from Costa Rica by Palestinian, were planted in Manto, a little village in Olancho, who once was the department head".

However, there is some information indicating that in the year 1804 "coffee in Honduras was as excellent in quality as the moka, it's believed that it has been sown by some onlookers in the province of Comayagua. This crops were discovered a few years ago in this province and are known as the most productive in comparison with other countries where it has grown more."
