This chapter discusses the landscape of coffee production, coffee-production strategies employed, and the land use pattern in the rural landscape of Central Veracruz, Mexico. The role of social, political, and ecological interactions within the agro-chain of coffee community are examined, as are the ‘bricolage landscape’ idea of land use and the role of marginalization and land heterogeneity in coffee-production regions. The chapter presents a detailed analysis of the Veracruz landscape, along with a quantitative analysis of the farming strategies applied to it, which are responsible for coffee landscapes’ evolution.

Keywords:   central Veracruz, land management, coffee production strategies, coffee farming, bricolage landscape, marginalization, land heterogeneity
