Regional Information

Honduras is a republic in Central America bordered by Guatemala to the west, El Salvador to the south west and Nicaragua in the south east. The original home of the Mayan civilization, Honduras is becoming a major coffee exporter in the world with coffee production reaching a record of over 4 million bags in 2011.

Although Honduras has suffered for many years with their coffee being smuggled across the borders to neighboring countries whose coffee would sell at a higher price, with stricter controls in these past years, Honduran coffee is now being appreciated for its own quality and characteristics.

Near to Victoria town in the Yoro Province lays Finca Santa Marta – a family owned coffee business since 1963. Irrigated by natural springs, this 146 acre organic plantation is located on the outskirts of the famous Honduran national forest preserve Pico Pijol. Comprising of just 6 microlots, the clay and sandy loam soil enables these coffees to develop complex flavor notes and floral aromas. Through constant education, the workers on the farm understand when the coffee cherries are at their optimum and ready to pick so ensuring the best beans in every cup.

The Hawit family has owned and managed this farm through four generations of family members and loyal workers. Brothers, Munir and Raul Hawit's vision still is to focus on small yield production varieties such as Typica & Bourbon to produce the highest quality coffees for you to enjoy.
