The story behind the coffee
Honduras produces approximately 6 million 60kg bags per crop year making it the largest-producing country in Central America. Honduras Rainforest SHG EP coffee comes from western Honduras, in the Lempira region.
Most Honduran coffee is wet processed and categorized as HG (high grown) or SHG (strictly high grown) relating to altitude and density. SHG’s qualities are more prized for their cup quality. Coffee varieties in this region include Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, Lempira, and Typica.
This coffee is certified under Rainforest Alliance guidelines. Rainforest Alliance supports coffee farmers by providing training in climate-smart and regenerative growing practices that boost yields and incomes; connecting them with responsible markets; and promoting the human rights of those working in the coffee sector.
