Beyond Coffee

Beyond the Cup

Nestled among three volcanoes, Acatenango, Fuego, and Agua, the city of Antigua was once the capital of the Spanish Empire in Central America. Still, 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 producing quality 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 Latin America’s most modern processing technology, contributing to each coffee’s consistency and quality. In addition, Finca Medina has been a member of the Antigua Coffee Producers Association since 2000 and maintained a focus on producing Rainforest Alliance-certified coffees in recent years.
This estate coffee includes cherries from the original Finca Medina estate plus Anexo Portal, which was acquired in 2016. After separating the floating cherries, staff members dry the coffee on the property's courtyards and continuously turn it with large wooden paddles for a uniform drying cycle before preparing the coffee for shipment.
