About our Company
Our history began in 1985 in Santa Rosa de Copan, a small mountain town in western Honduras, were Walter and Sheri Dunaway and a small group of friends founded Beneficio Maya. Originally established to buy and sell rice, the company began purchasing locally shade grown coffee to export to clients worldwide. Walter began the then-unheard practice of visiting far flung mountain villages and farms to personally buy coffee directly from the growers as a way to guarantee the quality of the beans and provide a better compensation to producers. Shortly, our farms were established and our brands were introduced to the market. Our gateway to the United States market came in early 2000's with the establishment of Copan Trade, our North American subsidiary. From our farms to your cup!
We believe in working with sustainable farming methods. Our farms are certified by the UTZ and Rainforest Alliance global organizations, which guarantees our coffee is produced in an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable way.
We provide school supplies, scholarships and medical brigades in the communities where our farms are located. These activities are an integral part of our social responsibility philosophy, and what a better way than help our farmers and their children have a healthy life and an education to open the door for a better and brighter future.
