Although a small country, Honduras boasts similar soil, climate and conditions as other coffee producing nations, such as Costa Rica and Guatemala. There are many different varieties, processes and cup profiles to discover from the country. The high-quality work ethic, results in an industry of producers that aim to produce the highest quality coffee each day.
Located in the southeastern part of the country is Agalta. It is an inland region that is more tropical, and has an elevation between 1,100 and 1,4oo meters. This tropical climate often produces a fruitier, sweeter tasting coffee, with hints of caramel and chocolate.
PRODUCER: Rio Olancho
