Honduras Coffee Tasting Notes
Perhaps most essential is knowing what to expect from Honduras Coffee’s flavour profile. It has often been described as sweet and light yet also rich and indulgent.
The bottom line is that it has something for everyone, providing a pleasantly fragrant note from start to finish. But what remains unaddressed is whether it contains a significant amount of caffeine within its beans.
Is There Caffeine in Honduras Coffee?
Caffeine is a stimulating chemical compound capable of providing an often much-needed energy boost. It exists in around sixty plants, including Loose Tea (Camellia sinensis) and, of course, Coffee (Coffea).
This means that you can, indeed, expect Honduras Coffee to support your focus and concentration throughout the day. Around 100-mg of caffeine comes with every serving.
Honduras Coffee History
The time has come to explore where it all began. Honduras Coffee production initially took place during the late 18th century. However, widespread cultivation didn’t occur until the 20th century.
This was when increased popularity, especially among Gourmet Coffee lovers, made it almost as important as the country’s banana industry. Coffee and bananas continue to be Honduras’ two primary cash crops.
Honduras Coffee Farms Today
Statistics suggest that there are now 110,000 Honduras Coffee plantation workers, of whom 92% are smallholder farmers. Challenges nevertheless remain. In 1998, an estimated 80% of the country’s agriculture suffered at the hands of Hurricane Mitch.
Even after recovery operations, the natural disaster led to financial burdens, a factor that continues to plague the industry dramatically.
An increase in cross-border smuggling is one of the main concerns as farmers send their Honduras Green Coffee beans to neighbouring Guatemala to fetch higher prices.
Government assistance programs and taxes on exports have provided minor relief. However, climatic change will likely play a considerable role in the near future, potentially affecting an estimated 30% of Honduras' population.
Your support is, unquestionably, needed to sustain the livelihoods of millions. And you can provide that support by choosing Honduras Coffee from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
