Our Guama Danta is a smooth, chocolaty cup with notes of dried fruit, roasted nuts and brown sugar.
Guama Danta is surrounded by hills and pine forests, high in the mountains with red, clay soil. This region has the highest productivity of all 15 coffee producing departments of Honduras. It is a longtime farming community, with farms in almost every possible micro climate, making for nuanced, complex cups.
Characterized by fruit (golden raisin) and florals (honeysuckle) on the nose, this reserve Honduras has gently bright acidity, a syrupy-smooth mouthfeel and a sweetly nut-toned finish (macadamia). There’s a throughline of crisp chocolate on the palate, with hints of molasses underneath. A balanced, richly sweet cup.
Honduras is a small Central American country with its share of problems. The World Bank estimates that in rural areas 20% of Hondurans earn less than $1.90 per day. Country-wide, roads are sub-optimal; many coffee farms in Honduras are accessible only via dirt roads that snake up along mountainsides. Despite these factors, entrepreneurial producers are working toward higher quality, experimenting with new processing techniques and growing high-profile varietals. The objective: kick down the door of the specialty coffee market, build a reputation as a specialty coffee origin and earn the money that comes with it.
