Bio: The Guama Danta is our favorite for a smooth, bright cup of South American coffee. The diverse coffee region is located primarily in Comayagua, a forested area high in mountains that are known for being the most productive coffee-growing department in Honduras. Here, red clay soils provide nourishment and porosity for optimal plant growth, coffee production is a multi-generation tradition, and farmers grow coffee in nearly every possible micro-climate. The result: unbelievably complex coffees. A true community effort, Guama Danta Reserve is produced by 87 smallholder farmers. Although transporting coffee to drying stations often becomes challenging during rainy days, the producers have banded together to install solar dryers to ensure their coffees dry uniformly and that quality remains high.
