Savor the aroma of the Coffee Route
Greetings to all:
There are several reasons for Hondurans to feel proud of their country such as its lush, natural beauty, the fertile land and products of extraordinary quality that have found a place of honor on an international scale.
Honduras is the largest exporter of coffee within Central America, the third within Latin America and sixth globally, thanks to its fine quality, taste and aroma.
According to the Central Bank of Honduras, coffee ranks third in generating foreign exchange on a national scale, followed by the tourism sector in fourth place. The aforementioned brings to mind the synergy that exists between coffee and tourism. Coffee has allowed us to enter the homes of Europeans, Asians and Americans and through tourism get them to visit our country, explore the homes and lifestyle of our coffee growers who with enthusiasm and energy cultivate the land so that the world can savor the excellence of Honduran coffee and the delicious and distinctive flavors that our country has to offer.
The complementary relationship between coffee farming and tourism also helps alleviate the seasonal effects that both sectors face, allowing touristic activities in coffee farms to become an important alternative for generating additional income for farmers and producers during the periods there’s no harvest, while at the same time allowing the tourism industry the possibility of extending their touristic offer of traditional products during the off seasons. We are ready to share this wonderful experience with all our visitors.
Coffee farming is a lifestyle shared by over 110 thousand families nationwide who contribute permanently to the sustainable development of their communities. The coffee route will allow visitors to explore the extraordinary wealth of our country, from the west to the east, while also learning countless stories along the way.
We are committed to make all the necessary efforts to ensure that our visitors can claim they explored a coffee producing country that not only provided a wonderful experience, but also managed to exceed their expectations.
