Are you looking for Chic Coffee in Honduras?
Honduras has gained a reputation as a producer of quality export coffee. The country even has two different denominations of origin for its coffees. Café de Marcala and Western Honduran Coffee are high quality coffees. Most people in Honduras will claim that the really high quality coffee is all exported, and only the lower quality is left in Honduras. How far from the truth!
I remember visiting the coffee producing region of Nicaragua a few years ago. It was surprising to find select coffee shops in Matagalpa and Jinotega. I wondered why this was not a trend in Honduras yet. Well let me tell you that is has become a popular trend in Honduras. Many of the top coffee producers are now opening up their own gourmet coffee shops and serving their coffee.
