A group of California's top-grossing Latino companies grew 15.5% last year, but lag far behind their Florida counterparts, Hispanic Business magazine reported in its June issue.

What's harder to find is someone like coffee roaster Pedro Gavina, president of Vernon-based F. Gavina & Sons Inc., who thinks the Seattle-based giant has been good for his business.
