Four Generations of Quality Coffee Surrounded by sweetgum forests and a sheltering mountain range that form a perfect climactic bubble, Guama Danta has an ideal, mild coffee growing climate. Farmers have been taking advantage of the conditions for the last four generations, consistently producing high-quality coffees that are smooth and creamy with notes of sweet walnut and chocolate. Download Fact Sheet
Honduras is a culinary melting pot—built on elements of indigenous Lenca and Caribbean cuisines, along with Spanish and African influences. Coconut milk and tropical fruits are common ingredients, and a favorite dish is the Baleada—a thick flour tortilla folded over a filling of mashed fried red beans, topped with crumbled cheese and crema.
A Microclimate in the Mountains Surrounded by forests and reaching altitudes of 1,700 meters ASL, Guama Danta has all of the necessary conditions for growing high quality coffees. The wet and dry seasons are well defined, ensuring proper flowering and fruit development ahead of the January harvest.
Shade Grown, Rust Resistant Many producers have small coffee farms of 1.5 hectares or less at altitudes between 1,500 and 1,700 meters ASL. The region's loamy soils are planted primarily with the leaf rust-resistant variety Lempira. Guama and fruit trees provide shade for the coffee, as well as refuge for local wildlife. Many local farmers also maintain small orchards within their farms to produce fruits for their own consumption.
A New Year Harvest Cherries ripen in November or December, and the harvest begins in January. Producers of the region de-pulp their own coffee, and then dry the beans on African beds or in parabolic dryers.

Premium Program
Meetings were held with all of the producers receiving a premium in their communities. The topics of farm assistance, recollection, de-pulping, washing and drying were addressed with a focus on quality in each step of the process. Producers shared their positive experiences with the commercialization system and were very happy and motivated by the quality premium delivered. Quality recognition certificates were handed out to all the producer groups involved in the premium.
