Rancho Delfino Farmers:
Mike and Baba Masino
The farm is named after Mike’s father and grandfather. Delfino means “dolphin” in Italian, and since the coffee trees have a view of the ocean, it seems appropriate. The ranch is nestled in Gobernador Canyon, a unique microclimate that protects the coffee plants from summer heat and winter winds. This setting enables coffee beans to remain on the tree for a maximum amount of time to develop their rich, delicious flavors. Since the 1940s, the farm’s rich soil has borne avocados and now, the avocado trees also provide shade for the coffee plants.
