Coffee farming in Honduras has long been an act of endurance and determination, with producers struggling to create quality from minimal resources. Since 2002, Becamo has supported producers with various efforts, including the 2015 creation of Recuperando mi Cafetal, a program designed to support the recovery of 84 hectares of coffee destroyed during the rust epidemic.
Now part of NKG BLOOM, the program offers producers training in plant nutrition; pest, disease and tissue management; and the preparation of biofertilizers. “It’s about recovering,” says Becamo leadership. “Recovering farmers financial economy, their family heritage and their interest in following the best agricultural practices.”
