IHCAFE, the Honduran Institute of Coffee celebrated the Honduras National Barista Contest in Tegucigalpa this past weekend. The event is a celebration to the excellent quality of coffee that Honduras produces. This is the eighth consecutive year that this celebration takes place in Honduras.
This week I was tasked with the pleasurable job of showing a colleague the diverse hotels and activities available in the Cangrejal River Valley. Locals refer to the area as “La Cuenca del Rio Cangrejal”. I drive up and down this road on a regular basis, yet I was once again in awe as hurriedly rushed through the valley.
The coffee shop craze has hit Central America hard, and Tegucigalpa is no stranger to the scene. It was to be expected, Honduras produces fine coffee and we should all enjoy it here at home. Although there are many great coffee shops in Honduras, there is one that really stands out on its own. I am talking about Cafe Galeano in Tegucigalpa.
Santa Rosa de Copan is the Coffee Capital of Central America. Most people do not know that Honduras produces coffee. Fewer know that Honduras is the largest producer and exporter of coffee in Central America. And even fewer know that Honduras is one of the top five coffee exporting countries in the World! Wow!
As with the rest of Honduras, chic coffee shops are serving gourmet in La Ceiba. It is refreshing to know that you can find World Class Honduras coffee right here, in La Ceiba. Following is a selection of the top coffee shops in La Ceiba where you can relax while you drink a great cup of Honduras grown coffee.
Believe me, Grandma and Grandpa will absolutely love visiting the Macaw Mountain Bird Park. Young kids have an absolute blast in the park. They love to run up and down the trails, stop and see the birds and even play they are pirates by putting a big macaw on their shoulders.
Welcome to the coffee harvesting season in Honduras! Each year, between the months of October and February, there is a flurry of activity in the coffee farms. Just about everybody participates in some way on making sure the harvesting and processing of coffee takes place.
Bold colors, great blown up photos of La Ceiba and surroundings and the aroma of coffee will welcome you to this gourmet Honduran coffee shop. This is the perfect place to come in for a great cup of coffee, take advantage of the free wifi for clients.
If my advice is any good, make sure you stop at the new Café Welchez at Santa Isabel during your next trip to Copan Ruinas. It is the perfect Honduras Style highway rest stop. Stretch your legs, have an invigorating cup of coffee and enjoy nice sweet bite.
Plaza Café, one of the leading, upscale, gourmet coffee shops in Honduras has opened its doors in La Ceiba. Plaza Café now has locations in three different cities. Gracias Lempira, Santa Rosa de Copan and La Ceiba!
