Honduras: Coffee Annual

Commodities

Honduras ranks first in Central America, third in Latin America, and sixth globally in coffee exports by volume. Honduran coffee production in marketing year (MY) 2015/16 (Oct 2015-Sept 2016) is forecast at 5.9 million 60-kilogram bags. Honduras was affected by the coffee leaf rust in MY 2012/2013; however, the impact was lessened due to producers using rust resistant coffee varieties. There has also been renovation of trees and new coffee areas, which provides a volume increase of the coffee to be harvested in the forecasted year.
