Growing regions

Copan, Comayagua, El Paraiso, Santa Barbara, Yoro, Cortes, Francisco Morazan, Olancho

We are the oldest exporter in Honduras. 97 percent of our purchases are coming straight from producers. We have the ability to export FCLs as well as microlots. We have a specialty centre for smaller lots in Comayagua. We are located strategically close to Puerto Cortes in San Pedro Sula. 

We give technical assistance to thousands of producers and pay them fairly and on time. Molinos is open to working together in projects to help sustain coffee production and farmers throughout the country. Molinos also likes to give back to the coffee communities, such as through school projects and medical centre projects.

We have cuppings every day, and we cup every cup at every stage of the processing: when we buy, when we store, when we process and before we export the coffees. Each coffee is cupped at least 6-7 times before exporting. 

We can provide regional blends as well as microlots and we have traceability of each coffee down to the producer level.

Coffee flavour profile

  • Our coffee is characterised as being well balanced and having notes of chocolate. 
  • Copan Region coffees predominate with a heavier and creamy body with fruity sweetness. 
  • El Paraiso and Comayagua have a more citric acidity with a more balanced body.
