Product Description

For over 20 years, we’ve been proud to partner

with Finca Medina in Antigua, Guatemala. Nestled

among three volcanoes, Acatenango, Fuego, and

Agua, the city of Antigua was once the capital of

the Spanish Empire in Central America, but it’s

now known for stunning colonial architecture and

the nearby farms that produce some of the

region’s highest-quality coffee. Antigua’s climate,

high altitude, fertile volcanic soils, and a distinct

agricultural tradition make this city an ideal

location for producers like Finca Medina, a

company that has been producing specialty

coffee since 1842. Located in the village of San

Lorenzo El Cubo, in the region of Ciudad Vieja,

Finca Medina includes two estates, one named

after the organization itself and the other called

Anexo Portal. At both farms, the staff implements

some of the most modern processing technology

we’ve seen in Latin America, contributing to each

coffee’s consistency and quality.

This naturally-processed Guatemalan coffee,

which was harvested in December of2017 and

January of2018, includes cherries from the

original Finca Medina estate plus Anexo Portal, a

property that was acquired in 2016. After

separating the floating cherries, the coffees were

dried on raised African beds, which were closed

off each day for two hours to ensure a slow

maturation process, which typically lasts between

28 and 30 days. With a sparkling acidity and

tropical fruit flavors, this coffee is not only one of

the best naturally-processed lots our team has ever

tasted; it’s also an indication of the alternative

processing methods gaining popularity in Latin

America, making us excited to see what’s to come.
