“Café con Sabor a mi Tierra” is a film by Sin Frontera Estudios directed by the Honduran Carlos Membreño and is based on real events with a focus on human value, sacrifice, struggle and work behind an aromatic cup of coffee that is consumed in Honduras and the world; the love of the family, heritage, culture, values and, above all, the positive image of the country.
It should be noted that in Honduras coffee is one of the best positioned industries and is characterized by being one of the largest producers of aromatics in the world, so it is positioned first in Central America and sixth in the world globe.
With this film, Honduras is already part of the registration prior to the official selection of the 92nd edition of the Oscar Awards.
