Abundant flora and fauna are found in Santa Elena, since a large portion of the farm is preserved as a natural forest, right beside a national forest reserve called “Parque Nacional Los Volcanes”. The coffee production process is of a traditional kind, coffee is grown under shade trees, mostly Ingas. There are more than 60 species of shade trees grown in Santa Elena.
