Honduras faces growing pains as leader in coffee

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Honduras will export nearly 5.4 million 60-kg bags of arabica coffee next season, well over double the volume in the 2004/5 cycle, cementing the country's position as the region's biggest coffee producer.

It is the only country in Central America that is significantly increasing production, aside from Nicaragua, Central America's smallest producer.

But if Honduras cannot improve infrastructure fast enough, quality could fall below standards demanded by exporters.
