Additionally, the farm teems with fruit trees including orange, banana, lemon, walnut macadamia, mandarin, lime, and Creole mango helping to not only diversify income, but also providing additional nutrients to the soil. Thanks to the biodiverse array of trees, Fina El Pino is also home to a variety of animal species with rabbit, badger, porcupine, vipers, squirrels, opossum, armadillo, field mouse and a diverse array of insects and birds scuttering about the farm.
Since 1938, the Gándara family has been growing exquisite coffees deep in the Veracruz region of Mexico at their farm, Finca El Pino. The slopes of this mountainous region allow for a humid tropical climate ideal for the slow maturation of coffee. The beautiful climbing elevations create a scenic place for the cultivation and harvest of coffee, where current owner José Luis Andrade Gándara enjoys the natural beauty of his farm.
