Sale price£12.00





In recent years, Honduras has gained recognition for its high-quality specialty and certified coffees. Coffee farming began in 1804 in Comayagua and is now the main agricultural export, crucial to the economy and many families. With around 120,000 registered coffee farmers, 98% are smallholders with 2-3 hectare farms. The coffee industry employs about 1 million people during harvest, 13% of the population.

PNSA (El Parque Nacional Sierra de Agalta) is located in the Honduran state of Olancho, and neighbours the Biosphere of the “Rio Platano,” one of the most diverse and rich rainforest areas in Central America. In 1979, UNESCO declared it a Natural Reserve and World Heritage.

This project is focused on helping small-scale farmers with less than 5ha that are fully dependent on coffee, while preserving one of the most vulnerable rainforest areas in Honduras and Central America. Studies show the “Sierra de Agalta” region will experience a decrease in yearly precipitations and higher temperatures in the near future. This heavy contrast in weather patterns will eventually have a direct impact on the lives of the local small farmers and Honduras in general.
