In the past, Honduran coffee growers trafficked their beans into Guatemala; where they would sell for a higher price, because of Guatemala’s coffee reputation. After government tax on coffee exports started to play a role in the coffee business, the country boosted production and dramatically improved their coffee quality. Since then, demand has increased and selling coffee across the border has become unnecessary. Presently, coffee producers and Honduras government have made it a mission to improve the quality of coffee. Laws have been passed giving fiscal incentives to coffee producers and highways have been built to access remote coffee growing regions.
