Honduras Among Major Coffee Exporters

July 08, 2017 Jonathan Burkholder

According to local news this week, Honduras has moved up to 5th place among the world's largest coffee exporting countries! Pretty amazing, considering that it's a country the size of the state of Pennsylvania.  When I stopped at the Export Permits office a few days ago, the official told me that they've exported around 800 million pounds of green coffee so far.

Coffee numbers

Our pickers must hand-pick approximately 275 ripe cherries to make a pound.  Because of all the processing & drying, approximately 8 lbs of ripe cherries equal 1 lb of roasted beans, so it takes about 2,200 ripe cherries to make one pound of exportable coffee, or 50 cherries to make a cup of coffee.  There are normally 2 beans per cherry, although some have 3 beans. Disclaimer:  These are my calculations, other sources may vary.
