Not much has been written about the relationship between gender equality and coffee. The SCAA report on "Gender Equality in the Coffeelands" (2015) highlights that women in the chain often face a "double burden". Women producers, in particular, work both on the farm and in the household for a total of 15 hours a day: almost twice as long as their male counterparts.
The coffee sector in Honduras represents 3.27% of the Gross National Product (GNP) and 31.69% of the agricultural GDP in 2019 (Central Bank of Honduras, 2019). The number of women producers who participate in this success is estimated at 24 858, distributed across 16 departments and 221 municipalities, according to IHCAFÉ (2019). The role of women is essential in production, particularly during the bean collection and selection season, and has now started to play an important role in Cupping and Barismo.
