Becamo, our sister company in the Santa Rosa de Copan region of Honduras, is widely recognized as one of the top coffee exporters in North America. The company was founded by Emilio Medina in 1983 and became part of the Nuemann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG) in 1989. Since then, it has expanded into the most advanced processing facility in Central America.
Becamo has also helped many of its producers to diversify their production and raise their quality and production standards, helping them be more competitive on the global market.
