Honduras is a suitable location for coffee growing and harvesting. The soil, climate, and conditions in Honduras are the same as neighbouring countries. As a result, there is a range of coffee quality from Honduras; the country can produce a lower-cost Central American blender coffee to high-grown speciality lots that rival more popular Central American coffees. This particular type is more complex than its HG counterpart, thus making it a speciality coffee.
In the past, Honduran coffee growers trafficked their beans into Guatemala, where they would sell for a higher price because of Guatemala's coffee reputation. After government tax on coffee exports started to play a role in the coffee business, the country boosted production and dramatically improved its coffee quality. Since then, demand has increased and selling coffee across the border has become unnecessary. Presently, coffee producers and the Honduran government have made it a mission to improve the quality of coffee. Laws have been passed giving fiscal incentives to coffee producers, and highways have been built to access remote coffee-growing regions.
- SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean, which creates a more desirable speciality cup; this classification is more elevated than HG.
- EP (European Preparation) specifies that the raw beans are all hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
