According to the Vice-Minister of the SIC, Juan Jose Cruz, coffee has left in Honduran coffers 1.240 million dollars in 2011, thanks to their export around the world. According to the Honduran coffee Institute (Ihcafe), Honduras has exported 4.7 million sacks of 46 kilos during this harvest, so Honduran exporters increased by about 1.1 million bags compared to the previous period between 2009-2010, surpassing expectations in 2011.
