    Finca Palin

    The Apaneca-Ilamatepec region is a beautiful expanse of volcanoes, swathes of forests, protected wilderness, and coffee farms. The soils are rich with volcanic material and the numerous ecosystems house a diverse array of flora and fauna – a truly ideal place to grow coffee.

    This pristine region is home to Finca Palin, the third-generation coffee farm owned and managed by Carolina Padilla, outside of the town of Tacuba. The farm was first acquired in the early 1900s and was passed down from generation to generation. Carolina’s father passed away in 2010, and she has delved deep into the world of coffee – utilizing both her family’s traditional practices in addition to newer modern processing methods.

    The coffee trees are surrounded by citrus trees such as limes and oranges, and teak trees for wood, helping promote higher quality coffee production whilst also diversifying income. Half of the farm is a tropical dry forest, housing biodiverse ecosystems.

     

    The town of Tacuba is a hotspot for protected wilderness, with the nearby Impossible National Forest Reserve expanding across 1,450 hectares. The farm is also working on more sustainable agricultural methods such as cultivating red worms to create humic acid, contributing to the production of a more natural fertilizer for the coffee. Habitats for a specific bee species are also protected to combat the spread of the Coffee Berry Borer. These sustainable methods are essential, especially considering the looming threat of climate change and the risk of droughts and floods.
