Honduras, country: Located in Central America. It is bordered by Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and the Caribbean and has ideal conditions for coffee cultivation. However, illegal logging and deforestation through slash-and-burn practices are harming the environment considerably: Every year approximately 1150 square miles of forest are destroyed. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Central America. It was considered the proverbial “Banana Republic,” since the United Fruit Company, the Standard Fruit Company and the Cuyamel Fruit Company acquired huge areas of land for farming at the end of the 19th / beginning of the 20th century. Today, coffee is an additional important export. It has a very strong flavor, spicy acidity, and a silky, fruity taste with gentle nutty nuances.
