Mario Fernández Sánchez is a seventh generation coffee grower whose family has grown coffee in Veracruz for nearly 200 years. In 1978 he purchased land near Coatepec and established Finca Garabandal. In addition to macadamia nuts, boysenberries, and flowers, Garabandal is planted primarily in Geisha coffee and it is believed that Mario was one of the first growers in Mexico to produce the coveted variety for commercial sale.
